They should have made you Editor-in-Chief of the Times Union.


At least the Times Union aren't printing frivilous stories about dogs jumping off a bridge in Scotland or a story about a cat taking an international flight from JFK to Paris in a wheel well on their front page (unlike the Post-Star). On the day after there was some water emergency in downtown Glens Falls that forced several business to close as well as sending a couple people to the hospital, they chose to report about the Warrensburg Garage sale on their front page.

With their constant full-page ads for Miracle Ear (among other things), there's less & less news to actually read. The newspaper business model is incredibly antiquated. On the same day Tingley (once again) tooted the glory of newspaper's supremacy came the Boston Bombings. Instead of providing some sort of context or narrative to what was happening, the newspapers took the easy way out & reported the same garbage everyone else was which was basically nothing of substance.

Well thank you, Johannah. Thanks to you too, Matt, and what (if you remember) did you think the papers got wrong in their Boston coverage?
