Ex RMN columnists stuck to their guns

DENVER- Considering the villainous role the Rocky Mountain News played in the vilification of Ward Churchill, their insinuations having been thoroughly discredited in this trial, you'd think the RMN columnists now writing for the Denver Post would be self-conscious about taking the same mocking stance. But they are not. Attorney David Lane chats with them most amicably, but still they file the typical anti-academic hit pieces. Columnist Vincent Carroll summarized Churchill's recent testimony as: Ward's world of brazen claims. 7144

Churchill and his curiously vile detractors

DENVER- There's an interesting sideshow at the Churchill v CU case having to do with a cadre of unsavory Ward Churchill online critics. What they are writing is hardly interesting but their unceasing doggedness, repeating only ad hominem attacks, leads one to wonder who they are and what horse do they have, in not only this race, but in Churchill's ongoing activism. These are the same voices which heckled the DNC organizers, AIM, and the contra-Columbus actions. 7125

Yellow Journalism meets its fate

BOULDER- How fitting that on the eve of Ward Churchill's legal challenge against CU, for his firing on the basis of accusations championed by the Rocky Mountain News, that we encounter a pickup truck hauling off the last of that paper's distribution boxes. No doubt still full! Good riddance!

With The Rocky Mountain News another bad newspaper bites the dust

Rocky Mountain News is no more and we have not lost anything vital here in Colorado. These newspapers are mainly full of advertising trash these days and people are going elsewhere to get the news, so the decline of the corporate press will continue. See Newspapers' Woes Worsening where it seems that these poor excuses of newspapers will try almost anything other than actually trying to be an informative and responsible press to keep from going under? When I subscribe to one of them I always feel totally guilty for helping destroy the environment for such a poor reason as what comes to my door each day.
