"A Show-Me Institute supporter contacted me last week to relay the story of the Moberly Mirror, a small newspaper that says it was pressured to close in 2010 for asking too many questions about tax handouts for a development project in Moberly. This is no rumor. What makes this story even more depressing is the fact that the reporters at the Mirror were right to ask questions: The development in question made big news recently when it left the city of Moberly on the hook for nearly $40 million in debt."
