Air Evac’s decision concerning
Private businesses are not held to the same scrutiny as public entities.
We typically don’t question a business as much or press them for answers like we would a city, county or school district. The reason is simple: they are generally not supported by tax dollars. Also, their information can be kept private if they choose.
However, there are a number of companies whose responsibilities carry over into the public realm. Your newspaper is one. We have a responsibility to tell you the news factually. We are held accountable by our readers, who make up a majority of the public. But we remain a private business who knows our responsibility lies within the city limits of Ennis largely and definitely inside the borders of Ellis County.
