It looks like it was made in the 1990's. It is, without a doubt, the worst website for a newspaper I have ever seen. The OD has a decent website, even the Rome Observer has a good website, why is the sentinel so lacking?

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that The Sentinel is lacking.

Why is it that people like you pray on other people's misery? Why do you want to read about that? Why is it that you can't spell crooked? That's what I'm wondering.

I was not talking about the CONTENT of the website. If was talking about the layout and look of the website. They could easily do better. Maybe they believe it would hurt sales or something.

Sorry for the typo...maybe its you asshole that chooses who is made public and who is spared...and no I have not had any run-ins with RPD, just sick of the bias treatment in this city. Point to be made was;If you are going to post one criminal , post them ALL

I like that it isn't full of advertising like all of the corporate owned newspaper's websites are. Remember the daily sentinel is a family owned evening paper - pretty rare these days.

And being "family owned" paper is sufficient explanation for the fact that the site stinks out loud?

Not sure, but it's definitely a sufficient explanation as to why certain people's names are published when they do something wrong and certain people's aren't.
