Yes, I get it that you don't like the latest business jargon. But besides demonstrating your own verbal dexterity (yawn), I fail to see any real light cast on this subject, not the teeniest twinkle of starshine.

Great reporting!

It’s striking how the News-Press displays no maturity when challenged over its use of possibly of offensive language. Instead the paper but immediately sinks to the level of vituperative attacks. But of course, we all know they gave up the ghost of civic responsibility many a year ago. In this sense, the comparison to Charlie Hebdo is apt. The Charlies were provocateurs. Sure that's their right, but not really what we'd hope from the main institution of journalism in our community.

Haters gonna hate. Trolls gonna troll.

On Free Community College?

AP states it well: Actions can be illegal, but not people. The NP, however, pushed this offence even further when they reduce the term from “illegal aliens” to just "illegals." Then they implied everyone in their picture was an illegal alien. Further, if someone there was actually an undocumented migrant, they were being publicized and outed by the NP. I don’t think this was journalism’s finest hour.

On Protestors Blast <em>News-Press</em> Headline

Speaking of free speech, does the News-Press's blinking video camera have any purpose than to intimidate the protestors. A real newspaper would engage in civil dialogue not diatribes, communication not intimidation. But we all know the N-P is far from a mature member of our democratic community

On Protestors Blast <em>News-Press</em> Headline

Let’s recognize the basic fact: powerful corporations loaded with money are seeking once again to control democracy to the tune of an outrageous $7.7 million!

And, they’re spending their buckets of gold on manipulative media blasts (from the absurd “increased dependence on foreign oil” to the just plain wrong “shutdown of existing oil operations”). If voter turnout matches previous non-presidential elections (56,000 in 2010), then that’s an outrageous $137 per voter.

Just to oppose this criminal corruption of democracy, voters should cast a YES ballot on P.

On Measure P Money Creeps Up

I salute Wes for speaking soberly and clearly through all the haze and mistruths

What terrible reporting!

Could anyone but a specialist follow this convoluted, obscure article? Amidst the contending claims and complex language, what does anyone learn? The author should not rest content with letting the two sides make their claims -- she needs to arbitrate and clarify.
I'd be interested in knowing if anyone but partisan expert actually read past paragraph 2.

On Measure P: Who’s Scaring Whom?

Long may distant corporatoins rule! Fearing for their profits, they must control any local expression. If only the Tea Party would wise up and attack the real threat to freedom. Peets pretends to be the anti-starbucks but fails.
