The Star Press Reviews


Gannet....sigh  Rebelgirl58  3 star

I loved the Muncie Star/Press back when it was locally managed and distributed. Since Gannett took over, the editing is pretty embarrassing and research does not always seem as complete or unslanted as it used to. Otherwise, it's an ok place to get local news and the app delivers breaking news pretty quickly.


Great paper  Booknerd3  5 star
