All of the above.

The OD will regularly file false and misleading reports on NH Town Board meetings, Library Board meetings and Planning Board meetings. They will not investigate corruption.

Kris Worrell is the liar in chief of the OD.

I have a true story that would incriminate the Utica Mayor with full documents of proof and the OD refuses to run it. I will go to YNN and Syracuse news to run it. Who is the OD protecting here? Not the taxpayers.

The OD can't report an accurate story about New Hartford. They have taken a hands-off stance regarding the NH Library debacle.

They are internally corrupt, have poor journalists (using the term very loosely) and are biased.

I'm not at all surprised that circulation has crashed into the side of a mountain. It is a paper not worth reading.

It's not the "OD" it's the publisher donovan. If you searched all the earth and the rest of the know universe, you would never find anyone who is as filled with hate as the likes of her. She manipulates the writing in that rag to suit her own agenda and has from the beginning of her reign. She is unforgiving, vindictive and loathsome. Is it any wonder that her kids turned out the way that they did?

What's with the comets??? The OD acts like the team is God's gift to entertainment in Utica. We have many other great things to do but the OD doesn't give it notice. There sports department sucks. The give all the press to a losing hockey team. We have baseball and football in the summer that's the same level and they ignore it. Our baseball team are winners.

The joke of a publisher has been writing the editorials for years to suit her own purposes...you can always tell who wrote what...dudachek is as boring as hell and dry as dust...donovan is always negative, dictatorial and mean...they both rot.

What happened to INVESTIGATIVE reporting? Isn't that what journalists learn in school? Isn't that what a NEWSpaper is for. To ferret out the news and REPORT it?

All the OD does is print press releases and political bull sh*t.

And their own editorials? The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly. Who cares what THEIR view is? How about reporting BOTH sides and let ME make my own INFORMED decision.

Isn't that what NEWSpapers are supposed to do? Give you the FACTS?

I have called them. I also do the monthly online surveys for them. But, mostly I email them.

They apparently don't care. On the phone I get told that they'll forward my concerns to the correct department.

Big Whoop!

LOL. Done that several times. The only answer you get back is:

A) their coverage is great

B) don't have room in the paper

C) silence

Kriss Worrell and the OD live in a world where

- The Utica Comets are an NHL team playing for the Stanley Cup.

- thousands of people comute daily to their high paying jobs at the Nano factory in Marcy

- Larry Adler and other developers pay their fair share of property taxes to include the taxes for the Hampton Inn

- Pat Tylsinski ensures all new development in New Hartford meets environmental impact regulations and pay their property taxes.

-that local politicians put the interest bof taxpayer first and not their friends and family

- the NH Library under Linda Romano spends the money generously provided by NH taxpayers wisely and has full magazine racks.

The OD must be the most disrespected and distrusted institution in the Mohawk Valley. Considering all the Friends and Family corruption that's not saying much.
