So here's my problem with Gannett newspapers and everybody else for that matter. They don't teach their reporters how to write at a college level. We're talking graduate level. I grew up with Harlan Miller and Gordon Gammack writing for the register and tribune. These men knew how to write and they write well and they wrote at a college level. I started reading the newspaper when I was 9 years old. I learned how to appreciate big words and sentences and paragraphs that went beyond the norm of a reporter just telling the story. These were men who knew how to write I bought they had to they knew how to entertain you with the facts, not just the way too many reporters today are only interested in getting someone's opinion. That's not what I am interested in unless it's Jermaine to underlying story.
I want to know what, when, where, how, and why. You start with that and then you go from there.

Thank you Peter for your insight. We spoke a bit about that during the interview. Reading and writing has, I fear, become a lost art. Your observation is appreciated and thanks for listening.
