Beet Street plan shows potential, deserves support
"Losses in incubator's first years," it said.
Her complaint? Essentially, that the newsroom was stating the obvious, that any startup would expect losses in its early years.
She's right about startups and losses; they go hand-in-hand. But that doesn't exactly make the fact of upcoming losses any less newsworthy or the headline any less accurate, especially in an organization that historically has relied on taxpayer support. That public support ends at the end of this year, so Flowers and everyone else at Beet Street have been working hard to find a new way for the organization to sustain itself.
Beet Street is a community asset and its financial condition should be of interest to us all, whether we take in and enjoy what it offers or not.
The point really worth making in this (editorial) space isn't one that any reader of our (news) headline and its accompanying story would have been able to discern: We believe Beet Street adds tremendous value to our community and that it deserves our help.
