    Gazette

    Good article. I've actually been fairly impressed with the recent coverage The Gazette is giving ISU.

    Re: Gazette

    That's a really nice season recap. I give the Gazette a lot of credit for having as much Cyclone coverage as they do. Great story, thanks for posting!

    The Gazette consistently gives us our due and the writing is far superior to that of the Des Moines Register.

    This!
    The Gazette might be the one thing where Cedar Crapids trumps Des Moines. Thanks DSM Rag!

    Re: Gazette

    One of the best reads of the year right there. An excellent job of blending the events of the football season with the BigXII maneuvering and national media opinion.

    Re: Gazette

    And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why (if I stay in Iowa) I want to take my talents to the Gazette and not the Rag. The Gazette is head and shoulders above any other "major" paper in the state. Solid coverage of ISU, especially considering where it is, and better coverage for the Hawks than they get in the Register too.

    Re: Gazette

    While I haven't followed it for several years (could be different now) it used to be that the Gazette had very good coverage of ISU mens basketball as well. Put the rag to shame.

    I'm not sure if this still the case, but for the longest time the Gazette was (probably still is because the quality is still high) independently run.

    In other words, they weren't a skeleton crew staff for a massive media corporation like Gannett (USAToday).

    The Register is little more than a sock-puppet of USA Today. If you enjoy thin and thoughtless coverage from a vague national perspective, the Rag is the paper for you - they've been phoning it in for a decade.

    The Gazette has always valued good writing and longevity on staff. Plus, unlike the Register, they don't seem to hate the internet.

    Best writers in the state - no doubt about it - work in Cedar Rapids.

    When you get there, just remember that we consider you one of the best Hawk fans on this site.

    Correct.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gazette_(Cedar_Rapids)

    The locally-owned SourceMedia Group (formerly "Gazette Communications")[2] publishes The Gazette and two weekly newspapers, the Penny Saver in Linn County and the Community News Advertiser in Johnson County. Gazette Communications also owns KCRG-TV9 (the call letters stand for Cedar Rapids Gazette)

    Good piece! Appears to be online only as that was not in SE Iowa version this am. Ran a nice article on Johnson and Benton though!

    Re: Gazette

    I haven't read it yet, but if it's indeed a positive article, the Gazette will soon be receiving a scathing critique/reply from Elmer of Oxford.

    Re: Gazette

    As far as papers in the area, the Gazette covers the Cyclones as well as any paper I've seen, besides maybe the Ames Tribune. It is a positive presense for ISU in eastern Iowa. Far Superior to the IC Press which is basically not worth the paper it is written on.

    Re: Gazette

    I reposted this, and my $.02 is that while there's some nice coverage in there, a lot of the compliments are backhanded.

    Sorry for the buzz kill.
