The worst thing these liberal media outlets did to themselves was to shutdown the commentary at the ends of stories and opinion pieces. The claim was to stop racism... so many legitimate vulgar free voices were silenced allegedly to protect people from some lunatic transcribing an all capitals racist manifesto. I smiled everytime I finished reading a story, wanted to comment, and instead saw SL pleas for readers to subscribe. Subscribe to something without a voice? Were they serious?

BTW did they ever find that poor little missing girl in southern NJ. (Dulce?) They shut down that story's comment section and every once in a while some reader would slip a comment about that into another story's comment section. A huge story that had people clicking, wanting too opine and they missed the boat on that story which was probably the end for many readers.

Hopefully they will follow through and keep opinion pieces very separate from news stories that do contain facts/information only.

I've got to go along with JC Guys for the most part.
Journalists should report the news. There are so many other career choices for those who want to bring the light of goodness into the world. My particular beef with newsapers pressing people to see things their way lies with the editorial page, where the editor gets to proffer his particular visions and desires to the reading public.
What gives them the right to do that, especially in a time when newspapers have seen fit to excise reader's opinions from the pages? Letter writers and comment contributors, in a fair world, should be given the same opportunity as the editor and the journalists. Who made those in the newspaper trade the arbiters of truth or deceit?

As Joe Friday used to intone: "Just the facts Ma'am, just the facts."

We can take it from there thank you.

Not impressed. F that guy and bring back the comments. Ban all opinion pieces and just report the news.

This is an amazing admission by a a senior executive at the Ledger (nj.com). Desperation is clearly setting in as circulation is in a serious decline.

Take a few minutes to read it:

Another example of the left falling into socialism which is the next step to communism. There is no free speech under communism.

Hey nj com open up your internet comments. Shut them down after this coronavirus emergency stabilizes. As with other nj emergency situations like storm snows, flooding, or the JC mass shooting people were getting very useful information from other’s comments.

You can place a call at CSPAN's WASHINGTON jOURNAL any day of the year but nothing beats a Letter to the Editor. The media cabals fear the public voice.

I am frankly surprised the NYT still has a comments section.

Shutting down the public comments sections started with leftwing websites like Salon, HuffPo and Daily Beast and eventually spread to CNN, MSNBC etc. all under the guise of stopping racism. The rare exceptions today are NYT, Politico and???

Just go to the left leaning Yahoo News, fortunately their comment section remains open, but almost all the "opinion" or "news" links they direct traffic to are no longer open forums.

I am not sure why you got your panties in a bunch over what I wrote... but I am sure you miss the good old days reading the Letters to the Editor in the SL. Free speech was so much easier to control.

I used to be active on their Jersey City forums way back in the late '90s to early '00s. Some of the "editing" there reached comical levels.

After the 9/11 attacks, a number of people started posting about Golan Cipel's appointment by Gov. McGreevey in a post that had to do with anti-terrorism / home security, etc.

The forum administrators would aggressively delete any and all references to Cipel. Certain posters would just keep posting his name just to see how quickly the posts would get deleted.

It was only after the whole mess of "I am a Gay American!" McGreevey broke nationally that the deletions stopped and people were allowed to talk about the Cipel's role in the McGreevey administration. Cipel had high tailed it to Israel at that point.

Note: For anyone that followed NJ politics closely at the time.. McGreevey being gay was the worst kept secret in Trenton. Nobody cared...

Actually, nicky, the Jersey Journal are not posting the snarky comments people are making similar to your snarky remarks. The paper is posting my "letter to the editor" which is on their website. I use a real name not a phony to post my comments. They are trying to get rid of people like you.

Setting aside the matter of the god-awful, headache-inducing atrocious grammar, can someone please explain what is non-biological adult? Is it a cyborg? Or, perhaps a T-1000 sent back from the future?

Oh noes! Where will Yvonne post her bigoted garbage now? I guess she’ll be posting here more often then. All the retired losers sitting at home and collecting government pensions will have to complain about Phil Murphy and government spending on Nextdoor.
