Cincinnati Enquirer
« on: June 08, 2005, 07:32:48 PM »
I just noticed the Enquirer just started charging $1.99 for any searches older than one week, what a cheap-a$$, bullsh!t move!  So, if you see any images in the online edition you like, you may want to copy them to your computer right away.

I thought they had been doing that for a while.  But it seems kind of backwards to me--shouldn't you charge for fresh content and let people look at the out-of-date stuff for free?

You can get around it though...if you search through Google and the article comes up, you don't have to pay.

At least you don't have to pay $4.95 a month just to access the front page, like the Columbus Dispatch.

You know what's kind of funny about the Dispatch... I subscribed for weekend delivery in 2003, and stopped getting the paper in summer 2004, but they are still sending me the daily headlines in my email and allowing me to access the website free of charge.  ??

I got to thinking of this, and today is a perfect example.  In the "Local News" section, there are more than twice as many Northern Kentucky stories as there are Ohio stories:
http://news.enquirer.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?Category=NEWS01

This happens every day.

Even back when the Coingate scandal was heating up, the Enquirer barely covered it at all.  Their Ohio coverage in general is piss poor.

Meanwhile, they create "nky.com" and bombard their Enquirer.com newspaper site with NKY stories that are better covered in a small community papers (Meaning, stories with little broad appeal.).

Has anyone else noticed this?

Sorry for the rant.

Are there any papers that ever cover the statehouse well?  It's surprising, since that's really where the rubber meets the road for most residents and businesses, sometimes much more than foreign policy or federal law, but coverage of it has always seemed weak, when I lived up north (although the paper I read then was the Medina County Gazette), and down here...

The Toledo Blade has done an excellent job in covering the statehouse, at least in the two years I've looked at it.  The Dispatch is probably second, and they have the benefit of having things going down in their own backyard.  I would put Cleveland and Dayton somewhere around third and fourth for the major dailies.  Akron's paper's been crap recently.

Little papers like the Medina County Gazette and the Delaware Gazette can't afford to have reporters at the statehouse.  They get their state news from the AP wire.
Other than the Enquier, Plain Dealer, and Dispatch, I wouldn't be surprised if the other papers in Ohio get the majority of their statehouse coverage from wire reports.

The last statement all of a sudden makes sense.

Since the Dayton paper and Middletown paper dominate the area directly north of Cincinnati, from Middletown and Lebanon north, the Cincinnati papers out-of-city market probably dips way down into rural northern Kentucky...deeper than just the Covington/Newport/Boone County area but extending to the next tier of counties south, like Pendleton and Grant, and east along the Ohio River to probably Augusta.

So they Enquirer is could be really reaching down into Kentucky for their market and readership, beyond metro Cincinnati.

Since they call themselves "The Cincinnati Enquirer," it would be nice to seem them actually cover the good stuff about downtown and the neighborhoods within the city.  I get the impression that the Enquirer only likes to cover positive stories if it's in Northern Kentucky, West Chester, or Mason.  If it's going on in the urban core, then forget it!

Yeah, there has been discussion here of percieved bias in the Enquirers urban coverage.  I dont read that paper, but from what ive read on this Urban Ohio site, it seems they really are "not helping" when it comes to urban revitalization.

I've been noticing the NKY favoritism lately too.  Curious considering that a minority of the region's population lives there, and they're not even in a newspaper turf war. I remember reading an article under a headline that started "Downtown business ..." and it was about Florence!!!

The Enquirer was already a worthless piece of S**t, but now that it doesn't talk about things that happen where I live or frequent, I hardly ever read it anymore, even online.

   As far as sports go, I had just started accepting the fact that NKY is part of the tri-state and so therefor there are a lot of Kentucky Wildcat fans.
   But lately I've noticed a lot of Louisville Cardinal coverage in the paper and on the radio also.
   It's getting a little ridiculous. The other day 1360 HOMER had the Louisville basketball game PLUS the Rick Pitino show on. I thought I was in the wrong city.
   I can see the Kentucky coverage, but come on, Louisville? Give me a break. Stop helping these schools recruit kids from our city for Christ sakes.
I feel weak. Development... too slow. Someone... help us...please!!!

I would like to see more coverage of tOSU --- for example, Sunday (yesterday) the game previews had 1 story for tOSU and 2 stories plus a UK "notebook" for Kentucky - I would like to think there are more fans of tOSU in the Enqurier's market area, since there is more population in Ohio in the metro. Then again UK is the only sport for the most of Kentucky. Maybe there is more UofL coverage since they have been in UC's league for a few years

I saw the front page of The Enquirer and it was talking about new development in OTR and it sounded like they were suggesting OTR is changing for the better. I don't know.  Maybe they're changing that.

Talking about their sports coverage...Look at Miami.  They are only 40 miles from Cincy and you don't see a damn thing in the paper about their hockey team, which is #2 in the nation. 

I guess it's b/c they have 2 things going against them:
1. No news (tv or paper) gives a damn about Miami (unless its about rapes & drinking)
2. No news (tv or paper) gives a damn about hockey

For one I don't call Greater Cincinnati, Tri-State.  Hearing Tri-State is quite annoying. 

Second, Cincinnati is in Ohio and while the metro spills into Kentucky & Indiana, the news from the papers should be about Ohio first and foremost.  As for sports, UK is not even located in Greater Cincinnati and should not be part of any headline associated with a local paper.  Miami Univerisity of Oxford is located in Greater Cincinnati and should get more attention.

Lastly, we all need to buy the Cincinnati Post from Scripps and make it a morning paper again that competes with the Enquirer head to head.

This is very true.  The writer that covers regional development, for the enquirer, came into my urban lobbying class and spoke with us.  I asked him why it seems that every story about the inner city is negative while most stories about the suburbs are postive.  He responded by saying that he reports what the story is and how it has been developing.  As for the fact of not covering positive stories at all...he said that he is new to the job and that he would try to address that.....we'll see

Maybe lack of inner city coverage is a reflection on the geographical location of their staff??

Ha. Having worked at a paper in Northeastern Ohio, I was amazed how many staff members lived in the same part of town. Where I'm working now (not Cinci, mind you, but another C-town) there seems to be a good number of people eschewing the 'burbs and such.

It was just a thought. I wasn't claiming that it was true, however someone in Kentucky can live closer to their job at the Enquirer compared to someone still in Columbus' city limits working at the Dispatch (If the Dispatch is centrally located. I'm under the impression it's downtown.) Since metro and city population are two entirely different things, I think every paper needs to cover all parts of the metro for the benefit of the whole region. This includes small papers doing articles on downtown and the inner city.

^It is a class about urban politics.  Every class you have two speakers come in and discuss a guided topic for the class.  These speakers usually have a connection to the topic you are discussing.  Last quarter we talked with those who deal with politics in the media.  This quarter will be about 'citizen activism'.

Its starting to get awfully disgusting!!!  I went on the Enquirer's website to see what news there was in Cincinnati today, and I believe that out of the entire paper there were only a handful of articles about the city itself (even Hamilton County).

Almost every damn article I went through was for Butler County this....Warren County that.....Nky, etc!!  I couldn't believe it.  One Headline read something along the lines of 'Downtown looking for artists to fill empty storefronts'.  I was intrigued to say the least......then I opened the article and it was for Middletown!?!?!?!?!?!  No offense to Middletown, but when you say downtown in a headline without mentioning a city name.....then its CINCINNATI.  This is the CINCINNATI metropolitan region, NOT Middletown!!!!

The Enquirer better start getting these things right SOON!  I am one of their rare young subscribers, and I will quickly quit subscribing and visiting their site all together, if this S**t continues!!!

THIS IS CINCINNATI.....DON'T FORGET THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL.

Downtown, as in a downtown, it has nothing to do with Cincinnati or Middletown.

Headlines read like that. If you read "Mother eats spinach with ecoli" do you assume its your mother? Or "Cats die in heat streak," would you assume its the Bearcats?

Sounds like wining to me. ;)
