We’re not certain who is calling the shots on the current journalistic status/standard, if anyone is, of the Lake Elsinore/Wildomar Patch, but its value as a news organization is being degraded on a daily basis by the juvenile commentary which now dominates its presence.
It’s the “Inlet from Home” arrow to the Liquid Effluent/Sludge that seems to be most potentially damaging to the Patch brand in the future.
Comments can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A little “gas,” and a thin layer of “scum,” is generally expected, and acceptable, in a public comments section, but “liquid effluent” and “sludge” are on a much lower level.
Unfortunately, for the Patch, it’s all there on their front page.
