The Dispatch/Argus wins, if you want to put it that way.

The poll which asks the question: "Which area publication do you consider the worst overall?" provided a run-away winner.

The Moline Dispatch/Rock Island Argus newspaper garnered a whopping 24 votes to come in a comfortable first place with 82.8% of the 28 total votes.
The free shopper Thrifty Nickel came in second with 3 votes, and the River City Reader got a vote as well.

The Dispatch/Argus was considered worse overall than those two papers as well as The Leader, the free Apartment Guide, the free Real Estate Guide, and the free Camper/RV guide.

Next up, a poll regarding Rep. Lane Evans' recent announcement that he intends to run for yet another term.

So again - who the heck went to the April 28 wine and cheese dine event where the Dispatch/Argus tried to see if they can be trusted by the public???

Did none of the readers of this blog attend?????

Enquiring minds want to know.

And it's no secret - I voted for the Dispatch to receive the di"stinct" honor of being the worst in the QC area because they are.

eg: Yesterday, they still thought the 5 yr old girl was alive - and missed the AP report of her body being found in Floyd Iowa. Today, someone woke up and saw yesterday's QC Times AP story and once again the Dispatch plays catch up a day later on the news.

Not only are they wrong half the time, they are out of touch with events - someone must not be watching their newswire service bulletins or maybe their equipment is out of date or something.

Here is an idea Dispatch ---- stop running two press editions with two covers - Argus for RI and Dispatch for Moline. That has got to be a huge waste of money. Concentrate efforts on better reporting and cut the unneeded expenses that make no sense...

Yes, they do stink.

The Dispatch is really just a mouthpiece for the Republican party in Rock Island County.

Dave,
Well you can see parts of the Dispatch for free here on this blog. So I would say, yes you have read it. No opinion??

I'm sure if you don't like it, then I do.

Dave you don't know me at all. You don't know much of anything. I'd like to know if you have any idea or opinion that is not far to the right as you can lean??

Easy there, look I just don't recall ever having read it. If you say it's right wing then fine, and since I disagree with the majority of your comments, I can only conclude with reasonable certainty, that I would like this newspaper or website or whatever we're talking about. There's no leaning involved here.

Dave
I dont think it matters if your Coservative or Liberal. The Dispatch is just a bad newpaper.

I'll just have to take your word for it.

Dave, for someone who does not live in the QC area, you sure have a lot of opinions on what we need to do over here. Where do you live so we can read up on it and make stupid comments likewise???

Only on matters of national politics.

Where are you from Dave - Hootersville or something? ARen't you proud of your town? We want to know so we can try and understand you.

Tell us where you live Dave - or maybe you lie -- and you really live and breathe among us in the QC area -- that's scary.

I expect you to stop comments on issues not strictly of national politics until you reveal your home town to us all.
