You could live here in GF and have to deal with the Tribune. If you have kids go to Central, like I do, they barely acknowledge you. They said, if we cover Central then we have to cover all the local Class C schools! Last I check it is GF Central and the GF Tribune. Colter's point is taken, much less staff but cover all the local schools...that is why subscription rates are dropping. I can get national news on demand but not local coverage.
So Let me get this straight.....Muslim terrorists fly planes into buildings and we are not supposed to judge all Muslim's for the actions of a few. A few crazy Americans commit heinous acts with guns but it is OK to condemn all gun owning Americans.. there is our congress for you.

Amazing. What started out to be a discussion of the poor state of the online Missoulian, turns out, in the end, to be an expose of the poor state of newspapers in general, across the cities of Montana, and most importantly, why. The Daily Interlake escaped scrutiny. How about it, Kalispell area readers, care to share your opinions and experiences?

You've got to respect guys like Colter and John S. Adams who are finding creative ways to provide alternative avenues to provide quality journalism. The 4th estate lives on and we are certainly better off as a society with them.

I can't speak for the Interlake, but whenever I am in the Flathead I make it a point to grab a Beacon and read the police blotter. Between the dogs barking and horses running wild it is a miracle people still live there.

Didn't know there was a 'Beacon.' Speaking only of the Great Falls area, if there was another paper that only reported on what goes on in North Central Montana (births, deaths, police blotter, etc.) the public would beat a path to its door, and the Tribune would go extinct.

Hahaha ... you can always count on some brain damaged trog like this ape or Tourist to characterize anything he doesn't like with some hilariously muddled horse shit about socialism or about some "left wing" phenomenon or other. Chronic brain fever like your senile grand daddy. Actually, of course, the problem is a classic capitalist monopoly of the news with only the bottom line as a goal and community service out the window.

Flathead Beacon is owned by Maury Povich and Connie Chung. As the only "metro" paper that is independently owned, it's not a coincidence it is the most healthy and financially viable paper in Montana.

It's my opinion that if newspapers in rural states like Montana were independently owned, this entire thread would not exist.

Sniveling socialists will never ever stop revealing exact who and what they really are.
Any attack on their agenda always brings out the very best of their bitterness and butt-hurt in a plethora of defensive bolshevik buzzwords and communist catchphrases
Obviously I never played the game.... :dance:
