Thoughts on our lovely paper? Typos? Wrong words being used, or used in the wrong manner? Who hired these reporters and why don't we have real stories. I hear about things, but amazingly they are never in the paper. Discuss.

The Commonwealth Journal is a solid local paper. Every newspaper is struggling right now, but this one cranks out local stories every day.

LOL... isn't it the only local paper in the area? I personally would rather read the dollar store ad. More info. less errors.

I had a subscription to that rag for a while. Then I realized I was paying for maybe 1 page of news that would be on the internet anyway.

So I let the subscription run out and bought only 1 paper in the last few months. Mainly just to see about the Wet vote.

The lead stories on the front page are missing about half of the story. It says continued on pages 5 or 6 , yet they're nowhere to be found. There is absolutely no excuse for this. I'd love to hear an explanation for this one. Someone (or a bunch of people) is not doing their job.

One of the incomplete stories, about the Asst. Commonwealth Attnys arrest for DUI keeps getting deleted every time someone posts it on Topix. Any thoughts on that. Local politics? If David Carr and Hall Rogers are fair game then why not this guy? Just saying.

This is on the CJ website:

"Further details on the arrest will be featured in Friday's print edition of the Commonwealth Journal."

They didn't finish the story.

i thinks its cause of the person who put it on here. i saw it then it was gone and i know the person with that name has been in trouble before from topicx and he is on this straing now to. wait and watch what happens cause he is a troublemaker on here big time trouble. probly you cant hint somebody is a alcoholic like he done put on that other one i guess.

There was a mistake at press facility in London. Proofreading had nothing to do with it.

I can't believe that they wouldn't have someone in QC checking at least the first paper that comes off the line. If they don't, that's no way to run a business. A quick five minute scan by a trained chimp should have caught it.

mistakes like that can cost subscribers. seems like the paper and printer needs to hire come capable proof readers or at least be professional aobut putting out a newspaper..
