It Sucks To Be The Denver Post Editorial Board

Local blogger and Tweetizen Chase Woodruff put together a collage of result headlines from last night’s local elections with their matching Denver Post endorsements and…well, safe to say it was not a good night for editorial board editor Chuck Plunkett and his crew of hot-takin’ civic concern trolls:

Wow, the state’s newspaper of record has totally got their finger on the pulse of Colorado’s electorate!

Not that we relish further disparaging our beleaguered fourth estate, but it might be time to evaluate these woefully out-of-touch endorsements against the Denver Post’s declining circulation. Between this and that regrettable 2014 Cory Gardner endorsement Plunkett has spent the last three years nervously talking his way around, loyal Post readers have plenty of reasons to look elsewhere for their editorial content.

And judging by these results, it looks like they are.

    Same thing with their editorial against the Jeffco school board recall 2 years ago.

    The Denver Post editorial board has always had its thumbs on the scales of justice. 

    The person that owns the paper (or the TV station) gets to choose the views he (almost always a he) wants published.

    A wise man once said, "Writing an editorial is like wetting your pants in a blue serge suit.  You feel warm all over–and nobody notices."

    If an editorial written on tree products falls in a forest, and there is no one left who subscribes to read it, does Chuck Plunkett continue to make a sound?

    Hey, Broomfield:

    Local control! 

    Until you do something I don't like. Then fuck that- the King  state oil & gas board gets to decide. 

    Hey, Douglas County – 

    Local control! 

    Until you do something I don't like. Then fuck that- the Waltonsm, Koch Bros and, gets to decide.

    Every since the Rocky Mountain News was gobbled up by this atrocity there has been no news in Denver.
