Press gets it right with Krusekopf story
The Carthage Press hit the right note with today's feature on former Jasper Mayor Fred "Doc" Krusekopf, who died Wednesday. As I have noted in two earlier posts, the Joplin Globe ran only the paid obituary, continuing its company tradition of taking advantage of death to make a profit. Of course, The Press also ran a paid obituary of Krusekopf, but they also recognized the news value of Dr. Krusekopf's death.
