Sad what Patch has become

As a previous Patch lover, and current dog obsessor, it's extremely sad for me to see what Patch has become. Allowing blogs like "Boss Hogg" spreading hate and lies around and keeping them just because they get good readership and fire everyone up with comments. It's become nothing more than a gossip column with aggregated regional content (isn't this supposed to be a LOCAL site?) and scummy, attention grabbing headlines like "Child mauled by Pit Bull" or "Teacher sleeps with 2 students". It doesn't matter if either of those events happened in your town, or even in your state. Shame on you Patch for what you have become.

Well said. Come on Patch, just stay local. And those ads - "click on this to see a spectacular event." Stop it! I don't need more of this junk.

I agree. All this "trending" news is sensationalist - not what I want my Patch to report on. This is where I go to get away from Facebook -
