Blogger & Public Think LO Review "Shut Down" Public Comment

To All COLA LO Members,

In a recent post a local blogger is asking what has happened to the online comment and public opinion section of our local newspaper.  

The blogger provides some interesting theories as do the online comments from the public.   What's Up with the LO Review?

Several members of the community have commented that they believe the LO Review has shut down the online opinion section due to pressure from our local public officials and special interest groups. 

Do we have censorship right here in Lake Oswego?

Its an interesting theory worthy of further review.   Notably the online comments in the above blog post all mention the fact that the online opinion section and public comments were ceased just before the primary election and some key issues within Lake Oswego. 

Its no secret that the bulk of online comments were often not very flattering in terms of citizens views regarding this administration.   That fact lends some logical credibility to the theory claim many of the interested parties.  

We leave up to readers to decide what has actually happened to the local press ately.   Readers can always contact the editor and publisher and ask for the facts.

Please notify all members, contacts, and friends.
