The Sorry State of Journalism


Every now and again, the story speaks for itself. From the Independent Record’s groundbreaking Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down editorial:

Thumbs down to questions raised in Sunday’s story about allegations that NorthWestern Energy has paid more in dividends to stockholders over the last two years than the company’s entire net earnings. If true, it makes one wonder about the company in charge of maintaining much of Montana’s electrical infrastructure.
