Editorial policy changes?

Can someone explain why it seems that the Times has started to take on the city recently–at least on some things?

Most of their recent criticism has been about people not results, but at least they have stopped their cheerleading.

Have the new owners decided to change the editorial policy?

Are they going to let their people try to be reporters instead of mouthpieces for the city?

We deserve better

    They prefer the former Wilson era voting block where walking quroms were the norm.

    EPT is just creating headlines for handpicked future opponents to use in their campaigns.


  2. New and Improved says:

    They realized circulation improved with comics, horoscopes and advice columns. So less news.

    I think the Times now going after the corruption and friends taking care of friends and family is GREAT! We should be cheering them on. Probably because of the new owners but regardless is nice to see objective reporting.

    The Times has been gutted and is now a non-entity. Local news coverage is almost non-existent. The only local stories readers care about involve controversy and drama, so the Times has to be willing to occasionally throw a rock and break a window to get attention. Otherwise, there is no reason for anyone to pick up the Times. They are being careful, however, not to break windows in big houses. They have not stopped cheerleading. Their coverage of the hospital battle is some of their most biased reporting ever.

    Until they take on the car dealerships, the ball park owners, the Paso Del Norte Foundation and the realtors, they have not changed anything. There are only one or two reporters actually left and they are too busy covering Friday Night High School football to do anything else.
