I was surprised and disappointed at either the lack of attention or the poor editorial decision in allowing the Sept. 20 front page introduction to “Today’s Opinions” about UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp.
This introduction does not agree with the actual content of the editorial.
The editorial itself states only that Thorp spent two years investigating and answering questions regarding the scandals at UNC. This is the kind of headlines (and editorial oversight) that we would expect to see in the grocery check out lines, not in the newspaper on which the Greenville community relies for accurate and authoritative reporting of events that affect us.
Hopefully the managers and editors of the newspaper have already identified this mistake and take appropriate corrective and preventative measures.
The editorial itself was rather weak and poorly supported, but that is an issue for another day.
