Hurricane Rita: In search of local news
New Orleans’s Times-Picayune provided excellent coverage of Hurricane Katrina (and it continues to cover Hurricane Rita), and I thought it might be useful to have a look at some other Gulf Coast newspapers for good local news. Here’s a preliminary list:
- The Galveston County Daily News
- The Beaumont Enterprise
- The Port Arthur News
- The Lafayette Daily Advertiser
Please let us know if there are other good sources for local news in the area. I find that many of my own posts — I won’t speak for Joe or my fellow co-bloggers — rely heavily on major news outlets like CNN and The New York Times, but I think that some local perspective might be in order.
