OregonLive.com[edit]

Was there an article for OregonLive.com at one point? I thought I saw it previously, but see that OregonLive now links to The Oregonian. Are they not considered separate companies? Perhaps OregonLive does not satisfy a notability requirement. --Another Believer (Talk) 06:04, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Deleted content[edit]

This edit, which made some good updates and changes, also eliminated a little material that might be considered unfavorable to the Oregonian -- about shutting down the Oregon Journal, and about the WW scooping them on the Goldschmidt story. Might bear some looking into. -Pete (talk) 04:58, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Here's an image that might merit inclusion, from Joseph Gaston's 1911 history of Portland. -Pete (talk) 20:30, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

New "Political stance" section needed[edit]

I don't have time to write it at the moment, but I just wanted to make a note that a "Political stance" section is definitely needed. Even though accusations of political bias are mentioned at times throughout other parts of the article, many other newspapers have such a section broken out (some even have "Political stance" as a list item in the box to the right). Here is one resource that will be helpful in talking about the politics of the Oregonian over time: http://crosscut.com/2013/06/oregonians-cutbacks-newspapers-layoffs-delivery/ And it should be noted that the Willamette Week has done a ton of great reporting on the O. --Thfump (talk) 00:50, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

Second reference[edit]

The second reference, for the staff count, is a dead URL. -- SatanicSanta 22:38, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

Presidential endorsement[edit]

This article implies by omission that The Oregonian first declined to endorse a U.S. presidential candidate in 2016. In fact, the paper hasn't endorsed a presidential candidate since 2008[1], when it endorsed Barack Obama[2]. In any case, a citation is needed.

Thanks for providing these sources. I've rephrased the article to clarify that the 2016 election wasn't the first time The Oregonian/OregonLive's editorial board didn't make a presidential endorsement. Feel free to tweak the new wording or post another message here if you think it still needs improvement. — Lord Bolingbroke (talk) 07:36, 25 December 2017 (UTC)
