March 31 2015 Indianapolis Star Front Page

Source: Indianapolis Star/with Permission

It is highly unusual for a newspaper, whether in a major city or a small town, to devote its entire front page to an editorial; which is a newspaper’s official position on a issue or controversy. But that’s what the Indianapolis Star did this week with their Fix It Now editorial.  The photos of that iconic front page logo that occupied fully half the front page of Tuesday’s newspaper, has been shown on TV and on line literally around the world.  On Afternoons with Amos, Jeff Taylor, Vice-President and Editor of the Indianapolis Star talked about the reasons for the editorial, the unusual nature of the decision and the newspaper’s role in covering the firestorm of controversy over Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). Though Taylor didn’t know the answer at the time of the interview, the Star has since revealed that their last full page editorial was in 1971 on the subject “Will the Federal Bureaucracy Destroy Individual Freedom in America”. A lengthy editorial personally signed by legendary conservative Publisher and Owner of the Star Eugene C. Pulliam.  On Our NEW Media Player Hear the Afternoons with Amos Interview with Indy Star Editor Jeff Taylor. Runs 15 Minutes ©2015 WTLC/Radio One. Audio Starts after Brief Video Ad.
