Back in the dark ages when Portland was fortunate enough to have two dailies, I always enjoyed seeing what the Journals slant was on something vs the Oregonian. and very often different
Then they merged and maintained some separateness for awhile, but soon we had only one Portland paper. How sad. The Big O had the only newspaper view. and over time I found I had many problems with their views. I think major metro area like ours needs to hear from more than one newspaper
Son moved to Puget Sound, he has several daily options. we don't
Than along came the Tribune whose first pres was a sports writer Dwight Jaynes. But they have challenged some of the Big O's
views. I think first whats going on with tram came from Tribune.
And many others, street car losses, bad street SW PDX, etc
Hope you all have had chance to read Tribune. another view.
