“Is Clueless”

I have always thought the Citizen Tribune was a joke. My respect to anyone who works there since everyone needs a job. But the newspaper itself has nothing to do with the news itself. The newspaper is just a platform for Jack Fishman's own financial and political purposes. That paper calls itself our "Tribune" but it has nothing to do with the people of Morristown. It has everything to do with all of Jack Fishamn's business partners and their businesses.

There is a freaking TON of happenings that never make it into the Citizen Tribune. But for the love of God, if there's a new store opening in town the Citizen Tribune is all over it. An elderly lady gets murdered by a drunk driver and it gets a short blurb in the crime section.

Thank you Exactly.

I think everyone in Morristown considers that paper a joke. Word of mouth is way more effective than that newspaper.

I dont like the paper either but I think the biggest joke is Morristown Resident - and when I say biggest I could be talking about her size or her mouth.

I find more online as well. That paper is truly a one sided paper. I like my standard banner more than the CT. I no longer get the CT, I only get the banner. It is full of community stuff. They also allow you to submitt things for their paper. And never take one side. Plus its delivered twice a week by my mailman :).... I wouldn't waste a penny buying the CT.

Maybe we should write dear editor letters to the tribune telling all their customers about topix.com ... laffs

Ever notice that the Tribune does not print letters to the editor...Wonder Why? I don't even waste my money subscribing to it. If I want today's news, I read it in the Sentinel because it'll take today's news 3 days to be in the Tribune. Oh, and I agree with earlier posts, if you want to know what's happening in Cocke and Jefferson Counties, just read the Tribune.

tribune is ok

i may be in the minority on this forum but not in this community unless it is hanging out with you bunch of whiners but the tribune is a decent paper. i have read it for many years and I think it has gotten better lately than ever. i agree that there is too much of the business ribbon cuttings and too much boring stuff that nobody cares about but I like some of the stuff. i am a huge fan of carla cody's columns and think she should write for a bigger paper. I don't know why she stays with the CT. I would get the paper just to read her columns and I at one time used to read Stan Johnson's columns. They were what I looked forward to but then he has seemed to run out of things to say. I have read many other small town newspapers and i think the tribune is as good or better than any of them. And I don't think Jack Fishman is even there anymore. Didn't he retire? His son's kids go to my daughters school and they seem like nice kids and a nice family. I do not think he carries on his fathers intimidating legacy.

I happen to like Morristown Resident, so why are you throwing off on her so much?

As my mama used to say, "If you can't say anything nice about someone, don't say anything at all!"

Come on everyone, let's stop being children and act like the adults we are supposed to be.

As for the Tribune, it may not be the best paper anywhere, but it is not so bad. I happen to know Mike Fishman, his sweet wife Angie and his adorable kids. They are a sweet family, or at least they have always been nice to me.

Have a good day, everyone!!

Good morning, Mrs. Morningside Resident, I hope you are feeling better. That flu is hard to shake. I know I am still a little weak from it. I drank plenty of water, until my eyeballs were floating:).

I am feeling better, but am still kind of weak. I am much older than you are, so I am sure it will take me a while to bounce back from this flu. I am planning on staying in all week so I don't get a relapse of it!

I hope you are having a good day! Don't worry about what these people say. Just ignore them. They only do it to get a rise out of you and as long as they do, they will continue to do it!
