I just looked at the coding for TRR (with Firefox, it's under View->Page Source), and I didn't see anything suspicious. Having said that, however, I'll also say that I'm a novice, not an expert. I didn't see any code--HTML, Java, CSS, etc.--that wasn't directly related to content visible on the site.

I do read TRR fairly regularly, more out of intellectual curiosity than anything. I like the positive and/or benign posts and info, but I do not like the negative, slanted, and personal attack posts.

This is quoted from Jim Baumer's blog.
It's strange they just can't let the Eldridge issue go. Eldridge must feel creeped out too...


I lump these two online news sites together, because TRR came first, and first clued readers to the trail of trouble that leads from Rumford, to Lisbon.
A small group of local news gadflies took over the former River Valley Reporter, and made it a must read for anyone wanting some actual news from the River Valley, instead of the tired, pro-crony tripe that the Sun-Journal had been serving up for far too long.
If you follow the news trail, you’ll see that former Rumford town manager, Steve Eldridge, landed a cush job in the Town of Lisbon, and not too long ago, former River Valley Growth Council Director, Rosie Bradley, also showed up as director of economic and community development. There were other issues plaguing the government of the town, also. Since the Brunswick Times-Record cleaned house, and dumped former reporter, Michael Reagan, no news coverage of any merit was forthcoming.
Until the launch of The Lisbon Reporter that is. Now, the citizens of the town can access content online that gives them a sense of some of shenanigans that are being perpetuated by those elected to carry out their wishes.
Both sites provide news, and should be regular destinations for anyone that cares about either community, or cares to consider that similar malfeasance might be happening in their own communities. Maybe we’ll start to see many other similar sites popping up all over the state, shining some disinfecting light on small town power-tripping.

The Rumford Reporter and The Lisbon Reporter's vigilante “journalism” is creepy, especially when they mix it with religion.

T, I completely agree with you. "Creepy" is such an apt description. I moaned when I first read her pontifications..........
TRR can throw in some "Pollyanna" good cheer now and then, but it only masks the reek of malevolence. The preachy Sunday tidbits are ludicrous considering the rest of the verbal slamming on the site.
