    This article is extraordinarily unfair. I follow Center Square and other medial closely in Illinois and know Krug personally. Center Square's journalistic standards are rock solid, which is to say far better than most media. Krug has a solid, traditional press background and he operates with editorial independence. Yes, their opinion pieces and editorials reflect fiscal conservatism, but nothing wrong with that, and they keep it separate from news stories. Their selection of topics likewise focuses on matters important to taxpayers, which is no doubt why you don't like them, but that, too, is entirely appropriate. They have served an invaluable role in Illinois covering stories not covered elsewhere and they do so with exceptional accuracy.
