What’s up with the Akron Beacon Journal?

This is what the front page of the Akron Beacon Journal looked like this morning.

Governor eyes freeze on tax cuts? Postponing last year…would raise about $850 million?

But then take a moment to look at Dennis Willard’s column in the ABJ on the same issue:

Willard goes on to state:

Gov. Ted Strickland did not unveil a tax-neutral plan Wednesday or a temporary freeze on the income-tax reduction.

Strickland proposed raising income taxes, plain and simple, to generate $844 million in the next 21 months.

The vast majority of people working in Ohio this year will pay more income taxes in 2010, and again in 2011, if the state legislature goes along with Strickland.

And that is a tax increase.

Makes me wish the ABJ columnists would get together with their editors to make sure everyone was on the same page.
