My comment got cut! I did use one bad word. Sorry for that. Although I have seen that word used in this publication in the past. If that is why I got cut let me know and I will repost without the word.
Maybe the folks at Lee's home office would consider putting advertising on their website, much as they do in the print version of the ADS. Of course, that is why the Star keeps shrinking..no advertising.
If there was more writing stories of local interest, some investigative work, (much like the Weekly does!) the advertisers might return. Get LOCAL and cut back on the out-of-state packages the Star frequently runs. That might require hiring a staff of qualified reporters, and not continuing the firing of good newshounds.
YOU AINT GOT MAH CROSSWORD AND MOVIE TIMES? WHAT NEXT, NO MORE EARLY BIRD FURRS CAFATEEREEA COOPINS?
Sally: A Republican fanclub? What on earth are you talking about?
Also, I've covered the film times issues A MILLION TIMES, but since you're on our website now, I'm happy to tell you that you can find film times with just an extra click right here: http://www.tucsonweekly.com/tucson/MovieTi…
Club listings will be back in the paper next week. We just had some space issues this time around.
W Corvi: I'll look into that.
The Tucson Weekly has been deminished to a Republican fanclub!
What the hell has happened to this formerly liberal, intelligent magazine?
And hiow can this be called an entertainment format when there are no
longer any movies or club listings?!
Here's something you can fix - how to get to the Opinions Page on the web. When you mouse over the OPINIONS button, a popup immediately appears, with a bunch of worthless stuff, like KRAT and RED MEAT which take you to ancient strips. But the Opinions button is covered. Never fear, the very top button of the popup will take you there, except it is off the top of the screen due to all the worthless stuff!
Media Watch's in print and online: http://www.tucsonweekly.com/tucson/media-w…
So what happened to the Media Watch column by John Schuster????
Since '1013'(That Ruined East Valley Tribune)took over Tucson Weekly,there is less 'Opinion/Currents' links on the website.
People "North of The River' can't get the paper version of your paper.
Here's the good news. TW, post acquisition, hasn't morphed into a piece of crap. Bugs can and should be worked out but there remains in Tucson one source of news that hasn't thrown in the towel seeking profit over substance.
That said, I would like to see more published mug shots of truly hideous local malefactors - the only coverage where the ADS excels and evidently takes great pride in.
"As some of you have noticed already, the last few issues of the Weekly, we've been trying out some design changes—a more readable font, better use of photos, a few things moving around. "
One too many commas in the first phrase?
I'm not sure if it is formatting, browser problems, or what, but THIS week, the "Tools" palette covers up the first three paragraphs. I *think* I got most of what you were putting up, though. Perhaps not.
Same goes this week as was the case a few weeks back, about not finding the Media Watch page. Maybe it is hiding beneath an advertisement??
Do you need a proof reader? "inexpensive".
How about moving a little back towards the middle, a little more informative, and less preaching the DNC line.
Run Triumph the Insult Dog videos more often!! The one on World Cup soccer was priceless.
SonoranWinds: Good for you!
Hey Dan, I've been in the news biz since my old man bought the weekly newspaper in my hometown when I was 5 years old. Call ya and raise ya.
you mean i'm finally going to have to resort to reading all these self-help books i've been avoiding all these years? continued good luck with the redesign, the changes i've noticed so far have been interesting.
Rancho: The editor's note will be back. Just out for a few weeks while we work on the redesign.
So, they finally got rid of the Editor's note? I would think you could have an online note, even if they won't let you have one in your paper...portent for things to come?
