         I will come back to corruption and LNP after the election. It pains me to see what LNP is doing to journalism. It is awful and almost worse, it validates Trump.
         So I’ll leave you with this tweet from former LNP employee Michael Deibert, who is a world class journalist and I believe he left LNP very quickly after learning what a truly corrupt, unethical, racist and greedy company they are.
         You go, Max! Yes, vote for Jess King and get rid of the Schmuck!

    *     Still, there’s a rule of journalistic ethics that we think ought to apply to government officials, too: Avoid not just conflicts of interest, but the appearance of conflicts of interest. Because in the public’s eye, they’re all the same.
         I have printed this unbelievable statement from an LNP editorial in August of 2016 several times before (click here for the editorial).
         But it bears posting again because these people are just such despicable liars. They break every code of journalistic ethics in this country every single day. And every media outlet that thinks LNP and/or the Caucus is a legitimate, honest, watchdog news organization needs to be informed that they are anything but that.
        The millions in public dollars that went/are going into LNP’s for-profit, off the tax-rolls Marriott Hotel ownership and current expansion smashes every journalism code of ethics in this country. And people need to be made aware of that!
         Robert Field of also wrote about the unbelievable hypocrisy and lie in LNP’s editorial and said this (click here):
         Shame on LNP. It is bad enough to fleece the community without blatantly insulting its intelligence. And yet again, perhaps the lack of community intelligence is the problem.
         It’s not the community’s fault. It’s because, of course, LNP, the monopoly news outlet in Lancaster County, doesn’t tell them about their own lies, greed and hypocrisy!
         LNP’s Marriott expansion in the heart of downtown is being paid for with your money:

    UPDATE 11-5-18



         The corruption in Lancaster is simply shocking. And when it is investigated fully and people are jailed, the bottom line participant and the recipient of the money from the corruption will lead directly back to LNP. 
         Who from LNP will be going to jail?
    Please check back later today.

    — This will come tomorrow. —



    The top row are two headlines on the front page of today’s Sunday LNP print edition. Below that is one of their top five stories online this morning.

       Can LNP go any lower?
    Please check back later today.

      Sorry I do not know where to put this
      To the point I just wanted to know if you have done a story on Scott Wagner

      The elections is coming up this Tuesday

      In the Lancaster’/York area I really haven’t heard too many people talk about how crazy Wagner is

      The story on Wagner choking his daughter and grabbing her wrist
      Reports say she put A
      P.F.A on him
      But never showed up to court so it was dropped
      And now she works for him
      It’s not normal for a father to choke his daughter there has to be violence in this man’s past
      it just didn’t happen one time

      And the story of
      Scott Wagner threatening
      To walk on Governor
      Tom Wolf’s face with
      golf spikes

      There are other stories about Wagner’s behavior
      If you have time please do a story on him on Monday before the election on Tuesday so people have the facts before they vote

      The real issue is not corruption, but why–in a democracy –any corruption is tolerated, whether on a local, state, or federal level. Do people just not care, or are people just focused on their own survival, or what?

    3. People do care…Some people are focused on survival and some really dont know about it or how deep it is. When they do find out theyre mind blowned at what they find out and how it got as far as it is. It takes someone with balls and values/morals to expose it like becky and other commenters on here.

    4. Comment to
      times up

      Scott Wagner, Definitely has some severe anger management issues
      Amongst other political people in Lancaster’
      so called political world

      Some members of the Republican party have been kissing up to Scott Wagner hoping he will somehow win the Governor’s race, so they can gain
      from their fake support.

      ( They were Hoping )
      and behind Wagner’s back they have been talking about him calling him
      Crazy Mentally ill
      Making fun of his appearance – Shorty – and it gets worse from there

      Mr. Wagner Your friends you served with as Senator …,,.Are not your friends
      They definitely are back stabbing enemies

      No I will not be voting for Scott Wagner tomorrow
      But the two access to the
      Governor’s office/ Mansion
      they were hoping

      Find some new friends

      Times up
      What you heard about Wagner was reported
      and apparently
      It’s true
      Vote No
      For Scott Wagner

    5. Out of Pa. reporting on Scott Wagner has pretty much presented him as a laughing stock. Especially after the golf spikes tirade. And apparently his name is unfamiliar to a lot of Republican voters.

      He has zero chance at winning.

      On the other hand, did anyone happen to read the LNP article that proclaimed Cutler as being a political powerhouse? Yeah.
