Plain Dealer

Shirley Smith’s reaction to the Plain Dealer’s editorial board was the same as Rev. Jesse Jackson’s when she saw its composition

CLEVELAND, OH – When former State Senator Shirley Smith visited the discriminatory and Russian-owned Plain Dealer / for an endorsement interview she asked AdvanceOhio’s vice president, Chris Quinn, the same question Rev. Jesse Jackson asked him when he visited the editorial board in August 2018.  Where are your “Black” reporters and editors?  The Plain Dealer was purchased by child of Russian aliens Solomon Isadore Neuhaus in March 1967.  His descendants continue to operate it under the “Newhouse” name today. Smith was promoting her candidacy for the 11th Congressional District with 11 of the other 12 candidates seeking to replace

In 1978 Kucinich was exposed as a racist who secretly used police to investigate his enemies and Cleveland voters who signed recall petitions to remove him as mayor after only 8 months in office

CLEVELAND, OH – Anyone who’s read the Dennis Kucinich Wikipedia page is informed about his one, two-year term as mayor that the Cleveland mafia put a death contract on him because he wanted to save Cleveland’s Municipal Light and Power plant.  The Wiki-story never says if the mafia who wanted him dead were the Russians, Irish, Italians, Serbians or his fellow Croatians. The death contract was pulled after the city entered default.  Dennis – the Progressive boy mayor – saved Muny Light.  That’s been the truncated version of Kucinich’s story about his two years of heroics as Cleveland mayor and

Now a convicted felon, Gary Norton joins the Cleveland Hall of Fame of dirty ex-politicians endorsed by the Plain Dealer

CLEVELAND, OH – The Plain Dealer and’s editorial board has done a horrible job of endorsing candidates for elected office.  When the newspaper’s endorsed candidates commit crimes in office or demonstrate incompetence its publishers, editors and writers just act like it didn’t happen.  Ignore their ongoing offenses until law enforcement authorities step in. Gary Alexander Norton, Jr. is the latest Plain Dealer endorsed political candidate to be convicted of crimes he didn’t get caught committing until he was out of elected office.  Norton showed up at East Cleveland city hall after voters recalled him in 2016 and offered to

Ken Johnson’s suspension from Cleveland city council was not within David Yost’s authority to request since he’s not prosecuting the case

CLEVELAND, OH – In the Plain Dealer and’s rush to make Cleveland councilman Kenneth Johnson look bad while he prepares for a federal trial, the newspaper’s publisher and editor are not examining if the rights of the American citizen who laws say is “innocent until proven guilty” are being violated by malicious prosecutors.  Instead of questioning the legitimacy of David Yost’s decision to use the office of the Ohio Attorney General to seek Johnson’s suspension from council, the Russian owned and dying once daily newspaper is championing the government’s violation of Johnson’s rights. Johnson’s “federal” trial date is set

WKYC got facts about Judge Eugenia Marie Murrell-Capers wrong that EJBNEWS corrected

CLEVELAND, OH – The voice of Caucasian reporter Mark Naymik leads off a WKYC “Black History Month” segment about the late American Negro attorney born Eugenia Marie Murrell.  It is claimed by WKYC’s editorial staff on February 2, 2021 that she was the first “Black” woman to serve on Cleveland city council.  Romney Smith then told her “brief” story. If Naymik, Romney Smith and the WKYC staff had actually met the woman who died under the name Eugenia Marie Murrell-Capers, and had a meaningful conversation with her, they would have known not to describe her as a “Black.”  Even’s

The Plain Dealer’s leaving the world backwards at $3 for a 4-day daily; and a $5 Sunday edition for $68 a month

CLEVELAND, OH – The feature image photo I took and published of the $3 per copy Plain Dealer and the 50 cents per copy Call & Post is from the general store that intersects at Bartlett and Lee Road in Shaker Heights.  It’s next door to Sam Sylk’s place. The Call & Post stack looks higher because it’s much thicker than the Plain Dealer.  Look under the Call & Post and you’ll see Plain Dealer’s.  Old copies of Plain Dealer’s are stacked up under others. The most this reader market will pay for a single copy newspaper regularly is about
