Two-thirds of the front page of the local Delaware Gazette features an extremely kind article about The Liberty Voice.

Kate Liebers, staff writer of the Delaware Gazette interviewed Sherry Mann, founder of The Liberty Voice  for over an hour concerning the comeback of the LV print edition.  The article touched on the inspiration for the paper, the decline of other newspapers, and advocacy journalism compared to more traditional objective journalism.

The timing couldn’t have been better.  The spring edition of The Liberty Voice is to hit the stands later in the day, March 13, 2012.   It features a new masthead, format and support from local businesses and the Libertarian party of Ohio.

Sherry Mann has halted subscriptions from all mainstream media sources for 6 years, but the fairness of the article prompted her to purchase a six-month subscription to her local paper.

Ironically, the article mentioned that Mann felt that objectivity in journalism was “impossible to achieve.”  And then Liebers proceeded to show that sometimes the impossible can be achieved.

    Newspapers were founded on the constitutional right of free press and have been serving the public’s right to know in America since pre-colonial times and on the European continent since the 17th century. Because of their traditional information role in society and their long-established INDEPENDENCE, newspapers remain the primary source for publishing public notices. Upholding the public’s right to know is essential to our country’s way of life. Our government governs with the consent of the people, and this consent must be informed. Local newspapers keep the public informed about the inner workings of their respective state and local governments, thereby allowing citizens to participate more fully in the democratic process. Without this participation, the potential for misguided policies increases and corruption runs rampant.

    Thank you Sherry for fighting to uphold this vital part of our society.
