Earlier in my career, I was a journalist. I worked for INC Magazine, was a news anchor at NBC and received a Peabody Award. All of which is to preface some discouraging remarks about the media these days. I know quality journalism, and we’re often not getting it when it comes to local reporting on transportation.
Case in point: The Norwalk Hour’s coverage of recent legislative hearings in Hartford on possibly reinstating tolls on I-95. While those proposals center on use of electronic tolls, The Hour’s sister publication, The Wilton Villager, ran a headline proclaiming “Toll Booths Have Little Support.” Who’s talking about toll booths?
