Man, talk about a lazy bum. JV, LT, and the rest LOVE to recycle old news in a pathetic attempt to keep the site from getting whacked. Lets see.....

They posted the same video of a (albeit nice) returning soldier 3 effing times on the FB feed and twice on the main page.

They beat the "best bakery" poll to death with at least 4 reposts on FB and 3 "still time to vote" on the main page. Top notch work, Patch. Glad we all know where to go for a quality donut.

The Sopko story is just getting rolling. 3 main page stories, and at least 4 on FB. Too bad no one died, right joe? The reposts would have been through the roof!!! Gotta get those clicks up for Timmy, right???

Wanna know where to see XMas lights? Well, Patch practically came to everyones house and tatooed the frigging map on your front porch with that old story. Repost, repost, repost, right lauren? Gotta generate that content, even if it means losing readers again!

About 5 total reposts about the new train station. Too bad, Mikey M, no one cares about your rants over the money spent. Maybe you should get off your lazy keester and do your own FOIA requests. Oh, wait, that would require devulging your real name. Never mind.

Oh, and for all those in oak forest in need of the worlds largest supply of useless information, please see cathy crawford at patch HQ. She ranks as an all time poster of troll worthy crap on patch, none of it relative to OF residents. Lets all hope a tragic case of carpel tunnel sidelines her and her spamming fingers indefinitely.

Finally, there is the column of excrement, known to us all as Cesar Bustamante and his racist, sexist, and uninformative "maps". My XMas hope is that he gets run over by a Google driverless car.

Happy holidays from Patchy! GO READ THE SOUTHTOWN STAR, where people do real work!

Oh boy!

Todays patch includes fffuuuucccckkkhead cesar and his data for "new gen x moms in town"!!!

Cesar needs to be investigated, since more and more of his posts are bordering on harassment of citizens, particularly women. This is getting scary!

Oh, and SNAPSHOTS FROM MIDWAY AIRPORT!!!! Oh, thanks, Dennis. Really helpful to our citizens. Top shelf reporting, simply top shelf.

They're lazy because they lack any journalistic talent and integrity. They lay on the couch or hang out at starbux waiting for the southtown star, trib, or times to pay a REPORTER to go out and do the hard work, then they cut, paste, change a few words around and disguise at their own work.

Hundreds down, hundreds to go. Don't expect a pity party from any real reporters when they're all canned, either. No love between these folks at all.

No clue who the Mike M nutbag is over on your patch, but he is one delusional freak. Hates everything about government except when it comes to getting what he wants. No police powers, but protect me from bad guys......no taxes, but pave my roads and plow my streets....no government, but only elect people i beleive in.....

Clueless liberatarian that uses public boards like those to demand OTHER PEOPLE ask questions and get answers for him instead of doing it himself.

Classy guy. No wonder he is consistently ignored by the patch staff and laughed at by the other readers.

....and lets move to today, december 29th. What does Lazy Joe do to keep OF residents informed?

He REPOSTS, YES REPOSTS not one.

Not two.

Not three.

FOUR rehashed, old articles of the Sopko story. NOT A SINGLE NEW PIECE OF INFORMATION IN ANY ONE OF THOSE ARTICLES. NOT A SINGLE THING.

Lazy, useless, pathetic excuse for an EDITOR. This towns has no use for you. Quit and go stock shelves at food for less, you lazy idiot. The town will be better off without your lack of interest in doing your job.

Since: Dec 13

Not sure who all the people you're talking about are. I had the patch on fb for a while, and the name Lauren seems familiar. What I noticed was they don't speak professionally in a lot of posts. A lot of personal diatribes too and everything seemed to be an editorial rather than unbiased news. I didn't keep them around very long when I saw all that. Sounds like they haven't improved much if any.

The OF Patch is a joke. They steal and rip off the southtown all the time. The editor hasn't written a single worthwhile article since coming on. The previous editor was canned earlier this year, only to be mistakenly rehired. They're all going to be canned in short order as AOL is closing the whole thing down in a few weeks.

The only one with half a brain is the orland editor. We will be sending an email to Patch HQ detailing our disdain for this OF guy, since he appears to have given up on doing anything. Zero integrity.

......and a fired editor in a pear tree......hows that for a christmas countdown, lazy a##?
