Josiah Turner Jr. of Orange County was the aggressive editor of the Reconstruction Period in North Carolina. In 1868 he purchased the Raleigh Sentinel and began his caustic and uncompromising crusade against Reconstruction. His major life work was the toppling of the Republican administration of Governor W. W. Holden and finally his impeachment.
Raleigh’s The News and Observer will see its longtime editor retire at the end of 1990. Claude Sitton managed the newsroom and the editorial pages for 22 years at The N&O. Frank Daniels III will take over the newsroom while publisher Frank Daniels, Jr. will oversee the editorial page. Some are concerned with Daniels III’s lack of experience in the newspaper industry and how the paper might change under his leadership. Daniels III has worked in newspapers for a total of 3 years before taking over while Sitton was the national news editor of The New York Times prior to working at The N&O.
