Veteran journalist launches WND column

Nov. 25, 2002: Five years ago today, Michael Ackley, a fixture as a daily columnist for the Sacramento Union for many years, joined WND as a weekly commentator.

Ackley worked with WND Editor and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah in the early 1990s when the latter served as editor of the Sacramento Union, then the oldest paper west of the Mississippi.

In 1987, Ackley became daily columnist for The Union, eventually producing six short-item columns plus an essay each week, making him one of the few seven-day columnists in the country.
