Whether they deserve it or not, The Buffalo News is the paper of record for Western New York. What they print matters and in the past year they have published articles on clairvoyants, psychics, a woman who communicates with mosquitos through mind-control, all without disclaimers, research, or citation of credentialed sources. It’s hard to read this stuff without a forum to respond. Many letters (albeit fairly caustic) are ignored. They did publish one about side walk snow removal though.
