Why no religion news on TribToday?

June 9, 2013

DEAR EDITOR: First, I would like to thank you for covering religious news and announcements in the Saturday edition of your paper....

@nativio289: clever,but really, there are a great deal of church news items that could be of interest to our community. For instance, dozens of churches are holding vacation bible schools and summer camps, giving area kids a place to go, have fun, and stay out of trouble. Other churches regularly do charity work, hold special holiday services, and offer community outreach. And since those announcements only appear in the print edition, they don't have the same opportunity to easily share links to these news articles with many in the public who would benefit or be willing to volunteer and participate. Despite the negative image some like to portray, churches overall still provide a great benefit to our community, give people a place to connect and reach out to those in need. Some will say they've never heard of area churches doing these things, which proves my point. Excluding church announcements from TribToday only keeps people away from valuable resources.

Are there new developments in religion worth reporting?

I'm assuming that when He rises again, that will be reported....Until then...

I saw Pastor Todd's facebook last week when he said he had sent this. Since the Tribune has posted the letter to the website, I'm interested to see if they will actually correct this. I hope they do.

commoncents, Not debating that. And it may have just been the printed version your talking about. My apologies if that is the case. Maybe now the tribe will give you this section like most papers. Good luck!

Daniel, Read the rest of the last paragraph: " It's not a good look when a newspaper can take our money but won't give us the same coverage and exposure in their online edition as they give other facets of our community."

In other words, the Trib is willing to accept money from churches for print ads, but not willing to post regular weekly news in both the print AND online edition like they do every other news section. The letter is NOT about a lack of religous ads, online ads, or ads at all!

"Even further, every week, I see paid ads in the Tribune Chronicle."

The writer was not asking about online ads at all, he was writing about the lack of a Religious News Section on TribToday . c o m, the online website of the Tribune Chronicle. Every other news section of the print edition (including special sections and features) is also posted online except for Religion. The only thing he mentioned about ads was that those in the religious community often purchase paid ads in the print edition of the Tribune, but their weekly NEWS (NOT ADS) don't get the same exposure on TribToday as other news sections do, only the paper edition. The complaint makes perfect sense to me.

builderbob, did you read the article? The writer asked about there not being a religious section and asked about the religious ads on this website. I explained how that works but someone would need to be a little computer savvy to understand it maybe.

We agree with the original intent of the Pastor regarding the lack of a religious section on the Trib Today.

For example. I was shopping at tigerdirect and now see ads from tigerdirect and the products I was looking at. I could of course clear my cookies or disable should I choose and then the ads become random. @nmcLone, AdChoice I do not believe allow adult content. So no, No ads for that.

Pastor Johnson, The tribune does not have any control over the ads you see, Other than that annoying video ad on their main page. The rest of their ads they have installed the code but what you see is determined by your browsing habits. Apparently you browse religious sites, so those are the related ads you see. This should at least answer this aspect of your question.
