Re: “Media Note: VTDigger Staff Move to Unionize

The L..A. Times was never unionized for most of its history. The publisher treated the employees so well that they never needed a union to fight for pay, benefits, and workplace standards. This remains the only valid way to keep your employees from unionizing.

Re: “Flake News: Vermont Site Features Coronavirus Conspiracy Theorist

Hoo boy, someone took the time to water down the attack on TNR and try to turn the tables on 7 Days. Priceless.

Re: “Flake News: Vermont Site Features Coronavirus Conspiracy Theorist

If you can stomach it, read the comments on the TNR site for that story. It shows the general depravity of the conspiracy minded wingnuts.

Note that those wingnuts submit numerous comments here and over at VT Digger. Both of you media operations lend them your credibility by hosting their comments. They game the 'likes/dislikes,' and it seems reasonable to believe that they can also generate clicks (valuable to your marketing & sales departments) that then influence the type of content produced at both media operations.

Re: “Health Department Reports Five New Coronavirus Cases

The next words after the 'but' in statements like:

I am not a racist, but....
I am not a homophobe, but
I am not a xenophobe, but

Always prove otherwise.

Re: “Health Department Reports Five New Coronavirus Cases

Yeah, let's blame out of staters.

What a stupid sentiment in tiny state where cross-state border traffic is so easily done.

Re: “Scott Says He Would Appoint an Independent to Succeed Sanders

Vermont independents are generally Republicans who smartly don't want to be tarred with the toxicity of the national Republican party, but don't have the courage to identify as Democrats.

Re: “Winooski Cop Denies a Slew of Domestic Violence Charges

The South Burlington PD didn't investigate in November/December 2018 after some of its employees learned of Matott allegedly strangling his girlfriend with both hands until she blacked out?
