An old timey newspaper feud with a newfangled twist

Out in Missoula, Mont., the upstart on the block, an internet-based/citizen journalism operation New West Network, has picked a little feud with the local old-line paper, the Missoulian.

Seems the local paper didn't want to take the upstart's help-wanted ad -- nor that of at least one other alternative pub. And, well, things just kind of have degraded from there. Jonathan Weber, New West's co-founder and editor, takes a few hundred words to jab, jab, jab at the Lee paper. One of the best parts is the comment that follows from a reader recalling a decidedly less genteel spat between the Rocky Mountain News and the Denver Post.

The feud is still giong strong and New West has a killer piece on Dick Dasen, Meth and Prostitution in Montana. Search Dasen on New West to read.
