Changes are underway at The News & Observer, Raleigh’s newspaper. Frank Daniels III has been hired as the new editor. Daniels is committed to making the newspaper appeal to a larger, mainstream audience. Readers are concerned that the quality of reporting and the paper's liberal identity are diminishing under Daniels. Additionally, Daniels' lack of experience and the paper's perceived nepotism are being called into question. Daniels' family owns the newspaper at which he was hired to edit.
