    A campus flier hung at Scripps College advises students of color to charge their white peers for “emotional labor” inflicted upon them — referring to the effort exerted when a student of color corrects or educates a white student in some manner. “Charge for your services,” the flier states. “If you’ve decided you’re going to do it, at least get paid.”

    Students urged to feel good about hating white people White people are worthy of hatred and no one should feel bad for hating them, incoming freshmen are told at the all-female, ultra-politically correct Scripps College in southern California, making it probably the worst and most racist undergraduate school in the United States. “Anger is a legitimate response to oppression, as is sadness, fear, frustration, exhaustion, and a general distaste or hatred of white people,” write the student authors of the Unofficial Scripps College Survival Guide. The 217-page exercise in PC brainwashing is supposed to help new students adjust to Scripps...

    The winning words in the nail-biter final were 'scherenschnitte' and 'nunatak' In a dramatic, flawless final round, two eighth-graders proved to be joint winners at the 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee. One a girl and one a boy, one from Kansas and one from Missouri, one a five-time finalist and one a six-timer, 13-year-old Vanya Shivashankar and 14-year-old Gokul Venkatachalam put both their hands on the trophy and thrust it into the air on Thursday evening—after spelling word after word that few people could even hope to pronounce correctly. Shivashankar’s winning word was scherenschnitte, meaning the art of cutting paper...

    In local TV, nobody likes a landslide. Close races are more intriguing to cover for the newsroom, and they are far, far more lucrative for the sales department. An analysis by the Cincinnati Business Courier concludes the runaway win on Election Night by Ohio Governor John Kasich cost two Scripps stations, Cleveland ABC affiliate WEWS and Cincinnati ABC affiliate WCPO $10 million in lost revenue: “Political spending is about the footprint and the competitiveness of each individual race,” Scripps CFO Tim Wesolowski said during a conference call for Scripps executives to talk to investors and analysts about the company’s third-quarter...

    WPTV NBC West Palm Beach, FL ^ | October 25, 2012 | Scripps Media, Inc.
    “Trail of Betrayal” is a joint project from Scripps broadcast, print and digital journalists based in Washington, D.C. Over 6 months, the Scripps National Investigative team researched and reported on a portion of the Boy Scouts of America's confidential files. The files were designed as a way to protect scouts. It was created to keep individuals out of scouting that Boy Scouts of America deemed "ineligible” to serve. Most individuals on the list were Scout leaders accused of molesting children. The files, which span the period from 1970 to 1991, were obtained through a court-ordered release of the records and...

    SUNDAY, March 28 (HealthDay News) -- Obese people often say they'd like to eat less but feel almost powerless to stop indulging, and now new research suggests that explanation might be all too true. The theory stems from a study in rats. When researchers gave the rats unlimited access to a calorie-laden diet of bacon, pound cake, candy bars and other junk food, the rats quickly gained lots of weight. As they plumped up, eating became such a compulsion that they kept chowing down even when they knew they would receive an unpleasant electric shock to their foot if they...

    The findings suggest development of drug treatment for substance abuseLA JOLLA, CA – January 25, 2010 – A team of scientists from The Scripps Research Institute has found that a specific stress hormone, the corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF), is key to the development and maintenance of alcohol dependence in animal models. Chemically blocking the stress factor also blocked the signs and symptoms of addiction, suggesting a potentially promising area for future drug development. The article, the culmination of more than six years of research, will appear in an upcoming print edition of the journal Biological Psychiatry. "I'm excited about this study,"...

    DENVER – Questions about the future of the Rocky Mountain News had become so common, the newspaper's staff put up a handwritten paper sign on the news desk that said, "We don't know." On Thursday, someone wrote over it in heavy black marker: "Now we know." Colorado's oldest newspaper, which launched in Denver in 1859, printed its last edition Friday, leaving The Denver Post as the only daily newspaper in town. Since 2001, the News has shared business operations with The Denver Post in a joint operating agreement between Scripps and The Post's owner, MediaNews Group Inc.

    The key players are now all in place in Washington and in state governments across America to officially label carbon dioxide as a pollutant and enact laws that tax we citizens for our carbon footprints. Only two details stand in the way, the faltering economic times and a dramatic turn toward a colder climate. The last two bitter winters have lead to a rise in public awareness that CO2 is not a pollutant and is not a significant greenhouse gas that is triggering runaway global warming. How did we ever get to this point where bad science is driving big...

    Rocky Mountain News owner E.W. Scripps Co. said Wednesday it will accept bids for the struggling newspaper through the close of business Friday. Scripps then will review any offers "as quickly as possible, but there's no specific timetable for completing that process," spokesman Tim King said. Wednesday's announcement, made among increasing speculation about the future of the News, marks the first time that Scripps has set a specific deadline for dealing with the 150-year-old newspaper. The Cincinnati-based media company had said last month that it would try to sell the News through mid-January, at which time it would explore other...

    Scripps Southwest Florida Group met with employees Thursday to say it is eliminating 34 positions, about 10 percent of its workforce. The weak economy, particularly in Southwest Florida, has caused advertisers to cut back on spending, said the company, which publishes the Naples Daily News, Bonita Daily News, Marco Eagle and other local publications and Web sites. "Our business is deeply tied to the health of local businesses, and when they are challenged, we feel it," said Chris Doyle, president and publisher of Scripps Southwest Florida Group and the Naples Daily News. The cuts were made across the company but...

    The last few days we've been assaulted by explicit commercials for HBO's lesbian show, The L Word, during prime time viewing of some of our favorite programs on HGTV and the Food Network. I realize they have had a dedication to promoting a homosexual agenda for some time, but this is a leap that needs to be protested.

    CINCINNATI The Post newspapers in Cincinnati and Kentucky printed their final editions yesterday, ending a 126-year run. The front-page headline in the last Kentucky Post proclaimed "-30-," a symbol used by journalists, printers, and telegraphers to signal the end of a dispatch. It rolled off the presses about an hour after its sister Cincinnati Post ended publication. The two papers, which were published in the afternoon, have been struggling for decades, part of a national trend. E.W. Scripps Co., of Cincinnati, owner of the two papers, decided in July to close them when a joint operating agreement with Gannett Co....

    In the newsroom of The Cincinnati Post, neither Champagne corks nor beer can tabs will be popping on Monday after the paper is put to bed — and not just because of a ban on alcohol that day. The Dec. 31 issues of the paper and a companion title, The Kentucky Post, will be the last for both newspapers, which are part of a dying breed of afternoon dailies. Fewer than 10 cities still have two or more daily newspapers, and Cincinnati was the last two-paper town in Ohio. The demise of The Post, which is 126 years old, leaves...

Scripps Co. said Tuesday it is seeking a buyer for The Albuquerque Tribune, an afternoon newspaper based in Albuquerque, N.M. that publishes Monday through Saturday. E.W.

The Albuquerque Tribune currently has a joint operating agreement with the Albuquerque Journal, the daily morning newspaper in the city. That deal, which is scheduled...

    CHICAGO E.W. Scripps reported Tuesday that its second quarter profit jumped 37% because of a loss during the year-ago quarter on the sale of its Shop At Home network. Excluding that discontinued operation, second-quarter income fell to $97.7 million, or 59 cents per share, from $105 million, or 64 cents per share, a year ago. Income from continuing operations was reduced by $5.4 million, after tax, or 3 cents a share, as a result of voluntary separation offers that were accepted by 137 employees at its newspapers during the second quarter, Scripps said. Total newspaper revenue declined 8.9% to $166...

    E.W. Scripps & Co. cut its first-quarter earnings forecast Wednesday, citing greater-than-expected weakness at its newspapers. The Cincinnati-based media company (SSP) said it now expects a profit from continuing operations of 33 to 37 cents a share in the March quarter, down from its previous estimate of 39 cents to 43 cents a share. A year earlier, Scripps earned 49 cents per share. Analysts polled by Thomson First Call expected Scripps to earn a profit of 43 cents a share in the latest three months. The company pointed to lower-than-expected newspaper advertising sales, costs related to a leadership change at...

    NEW YORK Wall Street's darling of the newspaper sector, E.W. Scripps, could be exiting the newspaper business. Executives at the Cincinnati-based company stated during an investor conference on Tuesday they are evaluating different options regarding its newspaper assets, according to research analysts at Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs. "We were positively surprised by the company's comments which indicate that management has given more serious consideration to this possibility than we had previously thought," wrote Goldman Sachs analyst Peter Appert. "Elimination of the newspaper unit would meaningfully enhance the company's growth prospects and likely translate into a higher valuation for the...
