DescriptionArizona exports political news like other states produce oranges or cheese. When Democratic media consultant Bob Grossfeld and a handful of veteran journalists launched the Arizona Guardian web-based news service in January 2009 they were well aware they were setting up shop in a state with a lively political scene. And that was before Arizona’s headline-making “show-me-your-papers” immigration bill the recall of that bill’s architect at the ballot box the tragic shootings in Tucson the US Justice Department investigation of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and many more.
