All the news that’s fit to … not print?

On Friday afternoon the Review-Journal published online an article about a massive wind farm proposed for the Nevada-California border being rejected by the BLM.

The article has yet to appear in print. Not Saturday. Not Sunday.

Isn’t that something the Sun does all the time? Is the R-J becoming more like the Sun? Heaven forbid!

  1. The R-J finally got around to printing the story today, though AP sent it out last week.

    This sort of story, not the failure to print part of it but the meat, must really be difficult for you eh Thomas?

    I mean, you got the bad ole/good ole BLM stopping business from doing business, but its a business you don’t much care for.

    What to do eh? Maybe write about how the story wasn’t written about…timely enough.

    Way to miss the point, “Patrick” (AKA anonymous)

    Then again, it’s what you do. Miss things, then spin and blame.

    When Steve is at a loss, he just hurls an insult. Much easier than formulating a cogent response.

    “Patrick” missed the point and tried to spin the subject, Rincon…..forgive me for being brutal.

    “Pat” deserves it.

    Rincon how many times has Thomas written articles haranguing the BLM for interfering with some business? And how many times has he railed against some “alternative energy project?

    All I pointed out was that this story presented a problem with being against the BLMs interference and his beliefs about alternative energy and that instead of writing about that, he chose to instead attack the RJ, which seems like the only way to avoid siding with one of groups he would rather attack.

    I guess that’s one way to handle it.

  7. Steve says:

    Perhaps, “Patrick” (AKA anonymous), the whole point of the post the fact the RJ appears to be following the Sun down the road of not printing what they post online.

    And nothing more.

    But, par for the course, you spin it like a dreidel on steroids.

  8. Rincon says:

    Throwing insults is the opposite of persuasion. It more often provokes stiffer opposition than it does acquiescence.

  9. Steve says:

    I don’t get personal like “Patrick” AKA Anonymous, does.

  10. Rincon says:

    Perhaps all of our comments are more abrasive than we realize. All we can do is keep trying to be civil and stick to logical discussion.

  11. Steve says:

    And not spin or filter what is written.

  12. […] Recently the morning paper posted a breaking news story online on a Friday afternoon but did not get around the printing it until Monday. The story mentioned […]

    The Nevada GOP was doomed the day they reelected Michael McDonald their Chairman.
