  • AFTERNOON UPDATE – WAKING UP TO TRAGEDY

    DEATH KNELLS?

         I had quite an argument with a commenter today about bail in the comments under the story immediately below.
         LNP stating Luke Murray “is free on $15,000 bail” is deceptive and incorrect. Period!
         And it is National Newspaper Week and the LNP editorial staff, of course, get on their high horse and state this in their editorial today (click here):
         We’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating — we exist for our readers, as we have for some 223 years. In a modern age of fake news, social media, and the dissemination of information in 140 characters or less, we believe the role of community newspapers is as relevant as ever. We are bombarded with information from so many different sources — some credible, some not. Consumers are forced to be discerning if they are to separate fact from fiction.
         No, you exist to make the Steinmans money and control Lancaster County. And I will come back to that tomorrow and domestic violence and Lancaster Police Chief Keith Sadler.
         But today, LNP “reporter” Tom Knapp tweeted this:
         *
         Really? A “death knell for Columbia?” What kool aid has he been drinking? Is that fake news?
         LNP: Failing to tell the public the truth about bail and Chief Sadler. Is it their “death knell?”
    ***********

    WOULD YOU HIRE MURRAY?

    **   An email in this morning with a link to “MightyRecruiter” (click here) and this question (thank you):
         So has Murray been looking for a new job or does this site just put up the names of people who might be a candidate?
         Hmm….

    *****

    LNP NEEDS TO GET
    THEIR FACTS CORRECT!

    Senator Bernie Sanders on his Twitter account yesterday.

         And if we want to discuss criminal justice reform – then we have to talk about bail. And LNP needs to get their facts correct! See yesterday’s post immediately below on this site.

    MASS SHOOTING

         Waking up to a huge tragedy in Las Vegas this morning. There are no words.
    Please check back later today.

    1. LNP exists to create advertising income, and to promote PSP…….readership is an unfortunate after-thought.

    2. And coupons! Don’t forget the coupons!
