Backus was a conservative Republican who was anti-gay. so no we don't want him!
we want a progressive news paper that fits our community and not some dumpy social conservative newspaper that is full of religious nut cases.

Didn't Marty get into a little trouble? Marty was always out for himself. A good newspaper is fair no matter how controversial the subject matter is. I miss Red Dog. He told it like it was. But if you hurt advertising, the cash cow, well, you won't be around long.

Yep seems some money might have gone AWOL! The paqer started going down hill under Backus and has gotten worse since.

I have a very attractive and charming friend with experience in advertising who interviewed for a position with him. He hired a ditsy uneducated girl not extremely attractive instead of the experienced girl. These people must be tight with money or blind. My friend now works at the Lex Herald and is in management.

If you are from Pikeville you should know by now; it is who you know or who your family is that determines if you get a good job from a local company. Then there are those bosses that are micro managers or fear having an employee who might make them (the boss) look bad.
well

Vanderbeck must have seen potential in the girl he hired or he wouldn't have hired her. Also, I would hate to think that he would make his decision based partly on whichever girl was more attractive. Apparently, he wasn't that impressed with your friend for some reason. Just because your friend didn't get the job, there's no reason to put down the girl who did.
soooo

No, we want someone who is not going to put their own views in front of the news. Besides progressive is just a term used to cover up the fact that you are socialist.

Vanderbeck has a personal vendetta against Wayne T. and the Magistrates.

It's a shame and a disgrace that a red faced hand wringing childish temper tantrum would be carried out by vanderbeck at the expense of maturity and journalistic credibility.
