There is no question that the most discussed event in Mississippi politics this week has been the Hattiesburg mayoral special election. Unfortunately, it's also been the subject of a very public brutalization that will make it nigh impossible for whomever wins to govern. Twitter has been the main tool of this assault, and the Hattiesburg media is AT LEAST an accessory to the crime. I'd planned on doing a full scale take apart of all of the bad tweets from the Hattiesburg media, but that pesky thing called "law practice" kept me tied up all day.
Dustin Barnes stepped in to do the job, however, and it's pretty good. Go give it a read.
