Connor is wonderful, KR sucked, etc.

Another installment in a series of Times Leader stories about how great the new owner is and about how terrible the old owners were. This week's highlight: Prashant insinuating KR was less than candid about the physical plant in Wilkes-Barre.

I counted five (5!) places where it is pointed out how "unusal" it is to make an investment in a new buy. Five!

Poor Ron. Doesn't he know PR pays better than being a journalist? If you are going to be forced to write this garbage -- or think you have to in order to make nice with the boss -- you might as well getter a fat paycheck.

Walzer was a shrill little dictator and Iseman her bloviating lapdog, but even those two posers wouldn't have let the TL come to this.

Nice job with "bloviating."

I don't know what's worse: The gross handjobs for the publisher or the Iseman Special hatchet jobs on third-rate local pols.

I just wonder how Ron was able to write this with Connor's penis in his mouth. What a blow job story. 9:25 is right. Walzer and Iseman never would have allowed this self serving piece of crap into the pape. And yes, they did hatchet jobs on some people. But most of the time they had great news sense. The TL is just a shadow of its former self and it's excruciating to see its journalistic standards fall more and more each day.

You forget. Matt Golas did this too with McHugh. His swan song to him was absolutely pathetic.

The plaque photo is an award winner.
The plaque that used to grace the wall where Connor's plaque was placed honored WW II veterans.
It went to the basement and then disappeared.
Rest in peace.
