Re: “Beware the Gazette after blatant editorials, mistakes

Kipper:

"At least the Gazette isn't trying to run the Transgendered Queer perversion agenda down everyone's throats like the marijuana rag does on a weekly."

High praise indeed. Is that the best defense you can muster for the Gazette?

"sounds like a personal thing?" Your hostility to the LGBTQ community is the "personal thing" in your post.

At least the Gazette isn't trying to run the Transgendered Queer perversion agenda down everyone's throats like the marijuana rag does on a weekly. Funny that Ralphie has such an axe to grind with a newspaper he worked for for several decades...sounds like a personal thing?

Why in the hell are the Gazette and GOP crowd here so afraid of Mr. Skorman?
Really, what is the source of their snarling hatred of that guy?

So then the G is kind of like the 'Archie Bunker' of newspapers?

Re: “Beware the Gazette after blatant editorials, mistakes

Thank you Ralph Routon and the Independent. I have been following a blog being written and posted online by John Schroyer (former Gazette reporter) with great interest. But not knowing his background or circumstances beyond the blog, I've been cautious about giving one hundred percent credence to what I read there. Your description of the Clearing the Haze series matches his. I'm now convinced that we who are deeply concerned about Phil Anschutz's Gazette are all on the same page - that our suspicions are based on provable fact. I'd like to encourage anyone who is interested in the journalistic integrity of the news we here in Colorado Springs are receiving, to check out Mr. Schroyrer's blog. It's called "Phil's Gazette".

You can find it here:

What's happening to our news in Colorado Springs is not just worrisome .... it's alarming.

Re: “Beware the Gazette after blatant editorials, mistakes

The Gazette is only concerned with part of the community. 40.31%, to be precise. Thus the disinterest in accuracy and journalistic ethics. Those items are not valued by their readers.

Registered Voters in El Paso County as of 3/20/2017

Colorado Democratic Party 94,289 21.54% Major Party
Colorado Republican Party 176,476 40.31% Major Party
Unaffiliated 157,349 35.94%

Not that there's anything wrong about that...the First Amendment applies here. But for those looking for balance and accuracy...the Gazette is not going to be your source of news.

As for me, I just don't read it because it's a) not a reliable source, and b) it aggravates my chronic blood pressure issues.

Re: “Beware the Gazette after blatant editorials, mistakes

"Uncle Ralph" has had enough! And good on him!

It is indeed refreshing to find a male in the local 'caspar milquetoast community' of spineless weaklings who have something besides warm whipped cream stuffed down their nutsacks who will actually stand up and say something when it's obvious something needs to be said!

While everybody else is huddled up at the El Paso Club or Plaza of the Rockies.

Ralph and Pam: couple of jalapenos stuck in the middle of the bland vanilla pudding!
