They are both reasons why this area continues to decline. It's all happy talk or telethons when what we need is exposing the corruption and incompetence of local and state government.

We won't get it and people will continue to move away from here to places that are growing and have opportunity. Keep electing the same old same old because we can't make informed choices.

Thanks OD and WKTV for a job NOT done

WKTV is probably angry because now they have to pay for the news they read on air instead of getting it free from the website.

I got what you were saying then you went off topic. I admit, the OD is a waste of paper, maybe that's what you were getting at. WKTV is what it is. They give us the latest news. What more do you want from a tiny city's local news station? I can't say the same for the OD. I pretty much know the news before my paper is delivered, except for the obits.

I'm still predicting that the OD will be closing their operation within the next 6 months and advertisers will be cancelling out the ads they have paid for because no one is left to read them.

Donna Donovan has destroyed what was once an excellent newspaper and even was awarded top Awards for various investigative stories. Sadly, that was BEFORE Donna took over.

You can't run a business by just increasing prices and upsetting what few readers you still have without giving a quality product. Bye-Bye Donna - hope you can sleep at night without any guilt you should be having.

WKTV gets their news from the OD. You can read it word for word and hear them repeat it word for word. Still Jenel & Jason can not read it with out screwing something up. I think both showed look for different jobs and do the listeners a favor.We are the ones paying for this through our cable, or direct tv whatever one you may have it is not free.

You made mistakes in spelling and puncuation on your thread. Does that mean you're a bad poster and shouldn't do it anymore?

Doesn't really matter. Topix is still free and usually breaks the news before the OD and WKTV. As raw and unedited as it is ( and slanderous) those of us with reasonable intelligence can still pick up valuable nuggets. So as far as the others...not worth your time!

No, just like you hold politicians to a higher standard, you should expect someone who chose the profession of "TV Newscaster" to be able to write and speak better than us "normal" folk.

Lighten up. If the Utica newscasters bother you this much, there is a problem. Shake it off and take out your frustrations on something more important.
