  • The ink wasn’t even dry on our editorial last week about the decline of American journalism — its dishonesty, its hypocrisy, its bias, its absolutely brazen disregard for journalistic standards — when none other than The New York Times published an anonymous opinion piece that took journalism to a new low. (subscriber access)
  • This past week I asked a friend at the White House about how the president was holding up against the onslaught of media attacks. (subscriber access)
  • Mostly missing from the moving and deserved tributes to Sen. John McCain was attention to McCain’s gift for self-deprecating humor. (subscriber access)
  • Nothing Brett Kavanaugh said on his first day of his Supreme Court confirmation hearings relieves the most profound suspicion: that President Donald Trump nominated him to front a legalistic coup against the rule of law. (subscriber access)
  • Love him or hate him, you’ve got to hand it to Donald Trump. His trade and tariff strategy — risky as it is — seems to be working.  (subscriber access)
  • America’s long and cherished free press — the vital Fourth Estate that stands as the people’s watchdog over our three branches of government, tasked with providing the accountability necessary to keep people free and self-governing — is crumbling before our very eyes, and only time will tell if it can be saved. (subscriber access)
  • On May 14, 1973, two months after John McCain’s release from a North Vietnamese prison, U.S. News & World Report published his 43-page essay about what he had endured there.

  • Whenever the President complains about “Fake News,” always capitalized and often punctuated with exclamation points, rest assured he doesn’t mean the actual sources of fraudulent information that infest the internet and haunt American politics.  (subscriber access)
  • As we begin the Labor Day holiday — and as families squeeze one more long weekend out of the summer — we should all pause to remember that Labor Day was created to celebrate the social and economic achievements of American workers. (subscriber access)
  • The vote by the Oneida County Board of Supervisors this week to rezone a 10-acre parcel of land to allow a gravel pit in Hazelhurst stirred up a lot of passion, and it may or may not have been the right vote, but it once again shows the need for consistency in Oneida County zoning decisions.

    Right now there is none. (subscriber access)
  • It isn't that easy to drop everything in the middle of the week and fly to Washington. If you're a community newspaper publisher, going anywhere in the middle of the week is a challenge. (subscriber access)
  • From the first day Donald Trump started running for president, he has raged against America's large and persistent trade deficit. (subscriber access)

  • Each year we make the journey from Arizona to our lake cabin in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. During the last trip I was shaken from my boredom by flashing red lights in my rear view mirror. The look on my wife's face was a reminder this wasn't a new experience. (subscriber access)

(subscriber access)
  • Calling out bad behavior
    There's not a day that goes by in modern America that the news media is not called out for bad behavior. (subscriber access)
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders is all over the internet!

    New York Magazine says he is "quietly building a digital media empire."
