Imagine our surprise when we opened The Groton Herald this week to see that it had devoted nearly a full page of its slim edition to an unsigned, misinformed attack editorial. Under the guise of what the piece called “community journalism,” The Groton Herald managed to both attack the publication and staff of The Groton Line, yet never mention us or our online news site by name.
