Hackensack Discussion / Re: My favorite paper is not having a good day

Your "powers" of speculation have failed you dismally. You are SO far off on EVERYTHING you guessed about that it's not worth my time or that of anyone else on this board to dissect each and every error, but I WILL tell you one thing:

Twenty-seven years ago, I retired from the business that you seem to think I'm "advertising", so I'm hardly looking to be hired and I'm certainly not desperate for attention. I had enough of that during my "business" to last me several lifetimes.

And FYI............someone on this board asked to hire me for an event a couple of months ago and I had to explain that I don't do that anymore. If you really need confirmation of that, I'll set that up for you in hopes that it would shut you up, though I really doubt that would happen (but hope is everlasting).

So your choice is to either quietly stay in your lane or continue embarrassing yourself. And for the 346th time..............DON'T READ MY POSTS if they bother you.

Mr. Leafe: Please stop beating a dead horse. Yes. I recommended your posts, but now, you've become so repetitive, you are annoying. And I still object to you advertising your photography business on this message board. I guess you have to advertise it because so few people actually hire you, and with all the free time you have, you spend most of it playing gotcha with the nameless, faceless Gannett Co. production people hundreds of miles away from Hackensack who put out The Wretched [The Record of Woodland Park]. In short, get a life. I'd like to see more of your photos as downtown Hackensack is made over. Look, I get it. If you are in my age group (Seventies), there isn't much to do and people pay you no mind. What can I say? This isn't the way to get attention. Thanks, Victor Sasson.

Fives & Flubs used to happen - by necessity - about every 11 days. Lately, it's been every 5 or 6 days - nice to see the huge effort they're making to put out a better product.

Today's edition has 22 problems in 19 items.

You're STILL whining about this? I told you before not to bother reading it. Are you masochistic too?

You're STILL the only person I ever hear this from. You might be surprised to learn that others feel differently. Want an example?

Check this out:

'My favorite paper'

Bob Leafe, a professional photographer in Hackensack, has been using a community message board called HackensackNow.org to catalog numerous typos, errors and other production problems in The Record.

His well-read entries appear under this heading:

My favorite paper is not having a good day


"Well-read" - you know what that means? "knowledgeable and informed as a result of extensive reading".


No whining there..........I wonder why.

OH WAIT! YOU wrote that in your blog!

What a hypocrite! And how many people do you think like a whiny, masochistic hypocrite?

Some advice: you stick to your niche and I'll stick to mine.

So Saturday evening we were a little early for Lido's to open (yes, another trip...and I picked up the phone this time, NO dial tone!) A little cruise way uptown by Staib Park I found another one.

ERRORS IN NEWS STORIES ARE REALLY WHAT MATTERS

Reducing local news and boosting sports coverage is a development that really impacts readers, not an endless series of gotchas on every single typo, broken syntax and other errors in the bloated sports section of The Record of Woodland Park, formerly of Hackensack. The elimination of the staff at the Hackensack Chronicle and other weeklies now put out by Gannett also is troubling.

When I worked as a copy editor at The Record, I often heard writing headlines is an art, and although I did it for many years, writing headlines has always been a challenge. The Record probably no longer has any copy editors who write headlines, and the paper is put out in a design studio many miles away from New Jersey.

Here's a hilariously stupid headline in Friday's Hackensack Chronicle, one that proves names are rarely appropriate in headlines unless it's Trump or other well-known figure:

"Hackensack chamber
honors Tank as a
Distinguished Citizen"


How does a tank become a distinguished citizen? The recipient being honored is Dr. Lisa Tank, chief medical officer at Hackensack University Medical Center, the hospital that ate Hackensack. I'd wager few people outside the hospital have ever heard of her so "Tank" isn't a headline word, and should have never been used in the headline on Page 4 of Friday's Chronicle, which reprints stories from The Record.
