For the past few years there have been very few stories to read. They are out of touch with the people of central Iowa. Their viewpoints lean one way and they are not shy about telling you that. Their sports page used to have a lot of info in it but now you have to hunt to get it. On gameday and the day after games they had big spreads, but now that has been reduced. Granted there is info elsewhere now but if a paper had good stories in it, it would be worth getting.
I'm no newspaper expert but do reporters really only have to write one story a day? Heck sometimes they dont even have to do that. I was just wondering how that all worked. Maybe the day will come when the paper only comes 4 days a week.
The gap in our economy is between what we have and what we think we ought to have--and that is a moral problem, not an economic one. - Paul Heyne
Heck Jon, The "oldest" thing in your home is yesterdays newspaper. Its at the bottom of every bird-cage in town. One reason for the downturn is most editors don't know whether they are walking or riding horseback. Terrible writers, terrible interviews, don't ask deep questions to anyone anymore. Feline foot around these coaches so they will like you and keep throwing softballs. Come on Ricky... "Give them the heater!"
The public is very informed. What we need is editors with some "Bawls" that will dig for the truth and run through hell with gasoline pants on to get a story or interview. You don't have to witch-hunt as theres plenty of fodder for everyone.
But the editors and management have been neutered and just want to hover around like helicopters and not offend anyone. It is easy to see why newspapers have been dying a slow death for years. BTW, IMO men are becoming more feminine and women are becoming more masculine...... Where is John Wayne when you need him..... Pilgrim!
