Times helping city find investors

The Times of Northwest Indiana is pushing the limits of interest and conflict of interest.

The Times and the Metropolitan Planning Council are leading the Gary and Region Investment Project, or GRIP. The group wants to influence tourism and economic prosperity in Gary and neighboring communities. The Times will be responsible for finding private investors, pursuing state and federal grants and approving development proposals.

Times editor Bill Nangle told the New York Times that his paper's role was not a conflict of interest.
Mr. Nangle described the paper as the “connective tissue” that was letting the public know about development proposals.

The Times has already written a handful of stories about GRIP; some of them quote Nangle and publisher Bill Masterson Jr.

Lee management long ago decided it was not in the news business, you know, reporting facts. Promoting every loony community development idea that comes down the pike in their news pages is more their style.
If you're a con artist and you want to shake down some investors, Lee willingly provides you with the headlines you'll need.
I've seen it happen time and again.
No wonder readers don't trust them anymore.
