Way to go Sub Standard. Talk about providing as little detail as possible. I was in Rochester this weekend and their paper does a remarkable thing: they report on EVERY vote by upstate MCs! Can you imagine? Rather than just running fluff pieces on how great their MC is for bringing home pork or running "stories" on how unlikely it is for someone to beat an incumbent, they actually tell their readers, every day, how their MC voted on every bill that comes up in Congress! Imagine...a paper that informs.

The Sub Standard needs to be put on notice. Everyone with a stake in this election - getting rid of that puppet Walsh and putting in someone with a brain and consience - needs to write letters to the editor of that newspaper. Complain when they are biassed or negligent in reporting local politics. Let them know the staus quo of Syracuse's economic situation stinks out loud. Speak your mind on their websites. And- if they indulge in Fox news-like right wing bias- boycot them. Do not place adds in their classified sections and discourage people you know from doing so. Make your voice heard.
