Worst of OKC: Worst Print Publication

Back in the 1900s, people depended upon print publications called newspapers and magazines to keep them up to date on current news, events and people. Today, a few of these relics from that distant age still exist. Vote for the worst one after the jump.

The Oklahoma City Friday

This is a newsletter newspaper that covers Northwest Oklahoma City, Nichols Hills and the Village. They bill it as the "Newspaper for Oklahoma's Trendsetters." I guess "trendsetters" now means retired white people who play golf and read shitty newspapers.


OKC Biz - Journal Record

I get these two local business publications confused. One is a monthly magazine that contains a bunch of pretty pictures and lets you see where executives eat lunch. The other is daily newspaper that covers such interesting topics as banking, energy and press releases. They both display ads for the creepy looking financial adviser with the world's best Tom Selleck mustache.


Oklahoma Gazette

Every now and then someone will give us a compliment and say "The Lost Ogle kind of reminds me of what the Gazette used to be." Or at least we consider that a compliment.

Anyway, since May of 2008 the Gazette has totally gone down hill. The rag's gotten smaller and the content's less edgy. Hell, they even let me and Clark Matthews pretend to be sportswriters and write some Thunder columns for them. How pathetic is that?


The Oklahoman

Surprised? If you want to learn why people don't like the Oklahoman, just read this. It's a little bit long, but totally worth it.



We touched on So6ix a few weeks back when we nominated its editor and publisher Jack McBride for "Worst Douche Bag." Since that scathing editorial, the magazine has done a total 180 and is now focusing on long form, narrative-style journalism. They have even renamed the publication "This Land" in honor of the late, great Woody Guthrie.

Okay, I'm just joking. So6ix hasn't changed. It's still the same old amateurish publication that comes across as more of a little play toy for a trust fund baby than it does a real magazine.
