    My understanding is some of the DA editorial pages are edited from their Monroe paper. Explains part of the problem. Gannett still buying newspapers around the country and cutting existing papers to the bone. A property like the DA still extremely profitable. I always felt a newspaper should be a reflection of the community it serves. Gannett not the best corporate citizen for Acadiana as it's not investing in local product and it shows. Even website is weak.

    Panic? Hysteria? I seriously doubt it. Using "UL" isn't the only issue with the DA. But Josh informed us long ago that the locals don't choose the titles of the articles. Regardless, that paper needs a massive amount of local counseling.

    There was a story there. I found it interesting. Buckley is not on the university payroll; he is supposed to write interesting stories, and if they shine a negative light on UL (and here, it is debatable because it was discipline versus forgiveness), then so be it. As long as it is true and not false, and its interesting, its a story.

    Fine. Then he should collect his paycheck as an investigative reporter and not a beat writer.

    So what you're telling me is a beat writer shouldn't be an "investigative reporter," but rather someone who just repeats what the university tells him to?

    Yes, Gannett is part of a vast Canadian liberal conspiracy to call us UL Lafayette.

    You foiled their plot!!!

    How can he be that unaware?

    Buckley using "UL Monroe" is no better. It keeps everyone at the lowest denominator.
    I wonder if he rode his dad's coat tails into that job!

    His dad is Santa, right?

    The dueling OWI stories were written as a win/win but came across as a rudderless ship

    The point would be that if they did more reporting on LFT area there would be less need for 'filler' articles. And I have reading the paper daily for many years....seeing more and more northern LA articles show up than ever before lately.

    There should be zero N Louisiana articles unless they have a statewide impact or interest. I suppose if there were something impacting Acadiana or of interest to Acadiana also.

    They are simply reducing costs, and keeping their prices high.

    Here is a serious question.

    Photojournalists take ethics VERY seriously. If you look on photojournalist boards there are always discussions about what is "ethical manipulation" of a photo and the consensus is that there is NO ethically acceptable manipulation in photojournalism even if it is asking your subjects to stand in a certain position or even some "overcropping" of a photo.

    It seems that "journalists" don't have the slightest ethical standards.

    Case in point, BMV's pal Buckley wrote 2 articles the other day both using the phrase "forced resignation" of Farmer as AD. NO WHERE has there been an official statement that Farmer's resignation as AD was anything more than a mutual career change. But Buckley continues to state it as fact that his resignation was forced.

    No big deal, right? We all know that it was forced. Well not really. We take it for granted that the Cajun faithful forced him out. That's fine for bragging rights and an anonymous message board. But a journalist has to be held to higher standard. We here time and time again that "he's just reporting the facts." Actually, he is not reporting the facts. He is making up his own facts. If her does it with this, we have to assume he does it with everything. And Kevin Foote enables this so is just as guilty.

    Spot on. We all "know" (in quotes) that SF was forced to resign.

    Except... we don't actually know this for a fact. The official stance is that SF decided to change career paths.

    Now, if Tim Buckley has some evidence to back up his CLAIM that the resignation was forced, I'd like to hear it.

    Otherwise, he honestly owes his employer, his readers, and most of all Scott Farmer and his family an apology.

    You can say "forced" in your opinion if you want. But "forced resignation" is #fakenews.

    Just playing devils advocate, do you know for a fact that Buckley doesn't know it was forced?

    --Wait, you can't assume that he does it with everything, but that he possibly, having shown that he has done it, might use the same tactic again

    I guess we need Raoul to set up the libel possibilities of this, as I think it involves malicious intent---In my years in photojournalism, I did have a great story of a presenter who told the saga of covering the homeless situation in a town---he ASKED a fellow if he could take his picture and the reply was affirmative, but only after he had put his shoes back on his feet!!! Probably one of the great rule violations of ethics at times is the permission to take/and/use photos!!!

    Probable doesn't because I'm sure he gets all his news from this message board instead of his newspaper because he knows his newspaper is trash.

    Yes, all the published information, news conferences, official announcements were that he was voluntarily stepping down.

    I have no problem calling Buckley out and have no respect for him since he has only contempt for the program that gives him his livelihood and agree with above about him owing those he defamed an apology. I fully expected a retraction in the stories where he said "forced resignation," but I obviously gave him and the Daily Advertiser and Kevin Foote more credit for being decent people than they deserve.
