New Newspaper Coming To Toledo


I was talking with a friend, and he told me that he heard there is a new newspaper coming to Toledo in April. He said the release date is going to be on March 31.

I hear it is going to be a community paper with all types of news…but the paper is going to be strictly online.

No votes yet

Can you give us more information?

That's all I have at the moment. But I think it is an excellent idea. There are many advantages to an internet paper.
What are your thoughts?

FWIW, my only thought (which is neither pro or con) is that if it's going to only be online then what will constitue it as a newspaper if there is no paper? To me, that's just a website so I wonder how they propose to make enough money to keep it afloat.

will this mystery paper be different ?

We had the Blockade, and we got the same HappyNews out of it year after year.

Then we got the Toledo Free Press, and then we had TWO sources of HappyNews. I kept the issue with Tom Noe on the cover, to show how little the TFP added to the area.

Now we're getting another HappyNews paper? Who cares? We need real investigative reporting, not another HappyNews outlet, and we most certainly don't need another "community news" piece of toilet paper. We already have plenty of those.

What does FWIW mean?


For What It's Worth

i'd be happy with a new paper that isn't so one sided like the blade.

I think having more voices in the community is great but I doubt they'll break the influence of the blade and the unions because the majority of Toledoans are either sheep who follow political ideology despite reality or just not smart enough to make an informed decision.

P. T. Barnum said there's a sucker born every minute and I believe most live within Toledo city limits.



mikeya, someone's spunky this morning! LOL!!!! :)

Or those across the country that vote straight party ticket, as they what they have done and will continue to do so.

well, what is left of it, does not seem to have soft and fluffy feelings for the Blade. :-)

I think if there was an alternative daily that was capable of adhering to the principles of public accountability, accuracy, truthfulness, objectivity, fairness and impartiality the community would be ecstatic.

I think if we had a daily paper who believed in the 'limitation of harm' - I would be ecstatic. Every time I've seen a minor's name published I cringe.

I think if we had a daily paper that understood the difference between an editorial and a news story and why you don't print editorials on news pages, I would never ask for anything for Christmas ever again.

If we had a daily paper that wasn't actively involved in steering elections - well then I think I would probably be involved in something else right now and would never had started blogging to start with :-)

Oh yeah and I would definitely subscribe.

If you're here to tell me it's my fault - you're right. I meant to do it. It was alot of fun. That's why I have this happy smile on my face.
