I can't recognize the PD as the newspaper I read when I first moved here, almost 20 years ago. There is a crying need for real investigative journalism, and while the Scene does some exemplary pieces, it cannot offer the blanket coverage a daily paper is meant to.
There are other papers in the area -- Call & Post, for one. Or maybe a start up is needed.
I would pay to help support a collection of investigative reporters for NE Ohio, because corruption is killing this area. There are likely thousands more just like me.

But on second thought, Karen Farkas is just a soldier doing the bidding of her superiors. So I suppose I shouldn't hold it totally against her for just blindly following her marching orders.
Ray, what does being Democrat have to do with the endless cheerleading and embarrassingly biased coverage? Dan Gilbert is a 100% registered Republican, but they've been kissing his rear end and making him wealthier for the last 12 years.
Oh, and Karen Farkas is a joke. The stenographer title applies.
Nothing against the Scene, but this is what happens when your have a one horse newspaper town. The nick name Pee Dee is appropriate. Their are never any hard hitting researched stories regarding the city government. There is never any follow up when it comes to Frank. Examples, what ever happened to the $8.5M in lost rebates from computer purchases at CMSD? What happened to the lead cases within the department of Public Health? Why are the majority of arbitration cases lost by city the pertaining to police officers? Why does the mayor have more special assistants than there are city council reps? What do the so called "chiefs" actually do? Why did Marty Flask and the former chief of police get promoted instead of being fired for the East Cleveland shootout? Where is the Pee Dee in the coverage of CMSD and the waste of tax levy where Frank and gang promised an improvement in graduation rates and test scores? Why didn't the Pee Dee address/cover the $2.5M being spent on a dirt track and city services at best suck? This is why Cleveland is and will continue to fail. There's an absence of truthful information in the so called freedom of the press.
Shame on Quinn. He has the nerve to call himself a journalist. He's a lackey for a fool.
