This certainly explains why Newspapers in general are ion a death spiral......If The Erie Slime News is the best, the industry is doomed.
Apparently the judges were impressed with;
1. That annoying Stickum ad placed in the center of the front page.
2. The reduction in paper size which magnifies eye strain.
3.Com ics reduced in number & to the size of micro film .
4.Out of town printing to assure no fresh news to read in the morning paper.
5. Liberal Socialist Commentary from leftwing columnists.
6. Really low quality coverage of local news.

In all honesty the Erie Slime News is a piss poor excuse for a newspaper.....we deserve better ,thank god for the internet!

1. Take it off. Takes maybe 3 seconds, ok 10 for a tea bagger.
2. No it doesn't, dipshit. The type size is identical. The column width is smaller.
3. Clearly, the part on level with the dumb tea bagger's ignorance. Comics. Hilarious.
5. Too bad it's not Limbag or O'Reilly telling us what book God told his ghost writer to write next.
6. In a tea bagger's opinion. Then again, 63 percent of republicans think Jesus' return cancels out global warming. So it's not like their opinion is a reflection of relaity.

Way to defend your worthless employer. Paper of the year because it was best at absorbing dog feces. You trash baggers will defend anything that is totally worthless.

1. Why have the ad in the first place, doubt anyone reads it.
2.Regular columns yes! but when the delinquent real estate taxes were posted no way.
3.Com ics...not everybody is a Deep thinker in the shallow end of the pool like you!
4. Apparently you don`t get up early or want to have a clue whats going on in the world.
5.Typical Liberal maladroit .....don`know the truth & don`t want to learn.
6. Read #5.....You still believe in Global Warming?

Most in Erie stupid enough to pay money for this bird-cage liner cannot read anyways. For what they spend in subscription fees monthly, they could finally get dial-up internet and get REAL reporting via the internet.

Your disclaiming a piece of your own state now? The newspaper has to be number one because they can read, otherwise it'd be out of business. Do you think they cheer on different teams instead of the Pirates in Erie, Pennsylvania?

Your a Pirate. You ignore everyone and what do pirates do, fight law abiding citizens and steal. You have a baseball team named after the illegal group of scofflaws! You glorify illegal actions and then expect law abiding citizens. That is how the Pirates baseball team name came about.

So you'll all be drunk fighting and pillaging because the manager said doing like real pirates do is best!

Please list the ten biggest stories your paper broke the past year.
Your paper is 19th century technology, written at a 5th grade level.
Nothing to be proud of.

I was an ETN subscriber for over 25 years. I occasionally mumbled about it as the quality went down and the price went up. I finally decided to cancel and see if I could live without it. Guess what? I absolutely did not miss it. Since most of the news is old anyway I had already read it on the internet one or two days before it appeared in the ETN. If this is the top paper in PA, WOW, I am speechless. I guess I will just have to find something else to wash my windows with.
