  • Who thought it was a good idea to regurgitate Huffington Post, NPR, and New York Times liberal talking points?

    Don’t start straying from real reporting. There’s no “gimmick”, no matter how fashionable, that’s going to make this paper relevant to it’s readers.

    You have one unique asset: Thourough, detailed reporting of local news that no one else will cover.

    Start getting too clever and you’ll join Suffolk Life.

  • Poster,

    We’re certainly not straying from “real reporting.” Nor are our reporters going to abandon covering local news. We’re simply offering some web-only content in addition to the stories that fill our paper, in an effort to keep our site fresh throughout the week.
    We actually have more reporters covering issues in Riverhead Town today than we’ve had in any of my five years at Times/Review.
    As this feature evolves, it will continue to include more and more hyperlocal content. But I also see us linking to other media outlets, however liberal or conservative they may be, if we think it’s something people may want to read.
    Of course there’s no such thing as a story that appeals to everyone.
    We hope to continue serving the residents of Riverhead for many years, just as we did for more than 90 years before the founding of Suffolk Life.

    Thanks for reading,
    Grant Parpan, Web Editor
