     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 NewsLanc.com 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.


  1. huh? says:

    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.

  2. Insider says:

    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

    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. barry in winnipeg says:

    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?

  5. Times up says:

    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
