    no longer des moines rag?

    There was some huge cyclone stuff in the paper last sunday. I think its time to quit trashing this paper company. Just like anyone else they do their best to cover what they can. If your going to bag on it, bag on the writer not the overall paper. Honestly who doesnt love the 2cents section. I recall reading some ****** off person in cedar rapids about that ISU billboard. something about fueling the fire.

    So they got something right for a change.

    If a kicker makes 1 of 10 field goals...do people praise him for making that one kick and he keeps his job?

    I think not.

    In general, I don't think the DMR is as bad as some think...yet they have not been at all favorable to ISU lately.

    who cares if they like ISU or not.only reason i'd use the paper for is, 1.If I didnt own a tv 2. If I didnt have internet....therefore my care for how much they cover ISU is very low.

    Now I'm confused. One moment you want folks to lay off the DMR...next you don't read nor care about it?

    The Register should be judged on an individual story bases. If they get a story right, even if it is negative to ISU, they should be commended. When they run a hit piece, they should be called on it.

    It was ISU media day, what did you guys expect to be in it. Realistically, the RAG had only 2 full pages dedicated to ISU. I don't think they deserve any praise at all. They were just doing what they had to do. What did they have on EIU media day?

    Honestly I was expecting a full spread on ISU's media day. So what we received in yesterdays paper was disappointing. Now I haven't looked at the online content, but .... print is better, imo, when grading the DMR.

    Oh well.

    I had a thread this morning or so saying how I thought the online coverage was excellent.

    And the Rag will always be the Rag as long as Keeler and Clark are gainfully employed there.

    Keeler's not that bad. Actually he's a drinking buddy of mine. He's a Northwestern grad, so he's gonna be a little pro Big 11.

    And Nancy... just ask MeisterBrau about her.

    Witosky is the main puke amongst that.

    The DNR's coverage was good They only had two stories on ISU football. Considering we had the only media day to be covered on Saturday their coverage was very poor

    The CR Gazette had some good coverage, yet the stuck a Hawkeye Kinnick Stadium story at the top of the front page to entice the Iowa fans to buy the edition

    The dsm rag used to be (a long time ago) one of the best newpapers in the country. Now it is one of the worst.

    It's unbelievable how far it's fallen. I'm not sure it's still true, but the Des Moines trivia game I have at home states that the Register is second only to the NY Times in number of Pulitzers.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.
