Is the Gray News hiding the news? Or just broke?

On January 5, 2006, Nathan Tsukroff of The Gray News wrote this of The Monument Newspaper:

Newspaper of record . . . hides the record
The self-proclaimed Newspaper of Record has failed miserably in its self-proclaimed task. Go to and you will find this week's prattle. But go to the archives and you won't find last week's prattle. In fact, the most recent prattle is from April, 2005. Go to and you will find EVERYTHING. What is Prattle trying to hide? Why can't we read the prattle from June, July, August and September? It's obvious that the Newspaper of Record is a broken record."

What goes around comes around. The paper on which Tsukroff bases his pride (Biasbuster will not stoop to changing his name to "Jerkoff" or say "go to the archives and you'll find last week's Snooze") has increasingly failed to upload their paper in a timely way. Weeks often go by without refreshing the online version. Also, there are missing editions that were never uploaded, from June, July, August. Why can't we read issues from June, July, and August? What are they trying to hide? And, links don't work, photos have the red X and some links take you to the wrong article.

It is understandable if the Gray News folks are trying to save some money and doing the uploading themselves. Internet hosting company MaineStreet Communications charges a lot to do that work. So, if The Gray News needs to save money, fine. But now you see that it's not so easy.

Now that his own newspaper finds that the task of correctly uploading even a flimsy newspaper takes time and skill, and is not as easy as it looks, maybe Mr. Tsukroff will issue and apology for his harsh words earlier. What are the odds?


  • He's too busy putting up mis-information on his Blogs.

  • Nathan Tsukroff would rather 'consider himself Right' than "Do The Right Thing"!!
