Greensboro's News and Record would be prohibited by Warren Buffett from "Des Moines Register calls for audit of Iowa results: 'Something smells in the Democratic Party'

"In a strongly worded editorial on Thursday, The Des Moines Register called on the Iowa Democratic Party to move quickly to prove that Monday's results are correct.

...“What happened Monday night at the Democratic caucuses was a debacle, period.

...the refusal to undergo scrutiny or allow for an appeal reeks of autocracy,” the DMR reads.

The News and Record, the Triad Business Journal, the Rhino Times
News2 and WXII
represent Greensboro's autocracy

...The editorial cites Clinton’s razor-thin victory as too close “not to do a complete audit of results.”

The newspaper editorial also said there were too many opportunities for error to arise.

“Too many accounts have arisen of inconsistent counts, untrained and overwhelmed volunteers, confused voters, cramped precinct locations, a lack of voter registration forms and other problems,” the editorial reads. “Too many of us, including members of the Register editorial board who were observing caucuses, saw opportunities for error amid Monday night’s chaos.”

The editorial ends by calling on the state's Democratic Party to “work with all the campaigns to audit results.

Buffett would never allow it.

The business journal is relatively incapable of stories with controversy
  or unhappy endings/findings

Mark Sutter and Jeff Gauger betrayed our community's investing class

They shafted Wachovia's shareholders and they know it

I figure they figure it's okay if most everyone else in the news business did the same

Break silly party tradition and release the raw vote totals.

Provide a list of each precinct coin flip and its outcome, as well as other information sought by the Register.

Be transparent.”

It would certainly be nice to have a local paper with some guts

Watching John Hammer disintegrate isn't a pleasant experience

He looked like someone stole his soul at the PAC press conference,
and his reporting on the subject proved it

Being someone's puppet can't be that much fun, 
just ask Donnie Turlington
