Cincinnati thugs threaten and sometimes
kill people they fear will testify against them or their buddies. Police
and prosecutors often complain about the lack of cooperating witnesses. It’s no secret. The Enquirer reports it.
Poynter.org says Gannett — owner of The Enquirer, Louisville Courier-Journal and Indianapolis Star,
among others — is reorganizing newsrooms, job and pay scales “to better
attract an (online) audience of 25- to 45-year-olds.”
Fox’s WXIX 19 had a bizarre
“investigative” report which not only rehashed an earlier story at
unseemly length but also repeated itself during the rehash. City
departmental managers are supposed to live in the city, according to
Cincinnati City Council. Some apparently don’t. Good story.
A Page 1 Enquirer story described
sometime violent misbehavior in Hamilton County courtrooms and
courthouse hallways. A headline said there was chaos in the judges’
“chambers.” Wrong. The story didn’t say that.
In the midst of all of the harumphing
about this month’s chemical spill into a tributary of the Ohio River and
the nine-county ban on tap water for days, NPR recorded a West
Virginian saying, “Without water, we’re up a creek without a paddle.”
