The Jonesboro Sun used to have substance and quality back in the days when it was a local, family-owned paper. Now it's just another corporate rag owned by the right-wing media conglomerate Paxton Media Group. The Sun has no substance, and Paxton seems to think the conservative politics that are friendly to their corporate interests should be shared by their readers--the true aim of media conglomerates, which is to keep the public in the dark. Maybe eventually there will be a Jonesboro edition of the Arkansas Times, and then some substance and competition will breathed into local reporting.

It's not a conspiracy theory--it's quite simple and straightforward. Media conglomerates have motives in taking over independent companies that deliver the news. Motives are always profit oriented--a larger market, along with promoting politically advantageous legislation and regulation.

Yeah, The Sun is pretty bad. News Media in Jonesboro blows. Have you watched KAIT lately? It's not much better.

You totally missed the point of the post. It was about how they have lost the ability to be objective.
It was not about starting a business so get your Mom or Sister to read it to you again until you understand the main point.

The point was that the Sun was crappy and we need another paper. So start one or read the Modern News.

The Jonesboro Sun's reporting is lacking especially in the Stan Mitchell department. He needs to be more careful about the Police and Courts section or he is going the Jonesboro Sun is going to have a lawsuit on their hands. If he is going to continue to report court matters he needs to make certain he has the facts before publishing. He has made many mistakes!

It works for bird cages too, but to be fair it has never been that great.

I always heard that if you wanted to go to bed with nothing on your mind, read the Sun before going to bed.
