SRN Boos the News: Local Media and White Euphemisms

We expected our new SRN Boos the News feature to be irregular, but here we are a couple days later with yet another instance of local news suckage. Facts: A Minneapolis police officer put his body weight on the neck of an unarmed, compliant, handcuffed black man who was lying on the ground. The officer […]

Ricketts Recap 5/28/20

The shitshow continues with more lies, and, even more alarmingly, the truth. As of today, 152,000 people have signed up for Test Nebraska. Test Nebraska has done 350,000 assessments, which means everyone who signed up has had to try two or three times to even have their information assessed to see if they can possibly […]

Ricketts Recap 5/27

Back at it again. Wednesday was mostly a big snooze fest about how nearly all of the federal pandemic money is going to businesses and very very little is going to actually help the people, though one very important thing did get snuck in there regarding Don Bacon’s bill to reroute the money meant for […]

Welcome to Seeing Red Nebraska Boos the News

We started Seeing Red Nebraska because of the deficiencies in news coverage in this state. To be clear: we believe that communities need to support local media and subscribe to their local newspapers. We also believe that the state has a couple (but probably not many more than that) solid journalists who do good work. […]

Ricketts Recap 5/26/20

It appears this week will be the last week Ricketts will be doing press conferences, and we think we know why.

How Parasitic Capitalism Is Making the Elkhorn Nursing Home Outbreak Worse

Life Care of Elkhorn is owned by a multi-billionaire who has made a criminal fortune off of providing “care” that has often been fraudulent or horrifically negligent to elderly people of limited means. Now the outbreak is likely causing calamitous staffing shortages at a time when extra care is needed and few outsiders can observe conditions in the facility.

Ricketts Presser Recap – 5/15/20

Sorry we are a little late on this one, but as we were going back over our notes from last Friday’s presser for a separate article, we realized a recap from last Friday was needed because it was … a lot. Off we go. As always, Ricketts started off with a plea to sign up […]
