Blaukat no stranger to dealing with Joplin Globe

Newly-minted Joplin Daily Publisher Rodney Blaukat is no stranger to dealing with his competition, the Joplin Globe.
I came across this post from the Sept. 5, 2004, Turner Report when Blaukat was still a member of the Joplin R-8 Board of Education and the Globe, as usual, failed to play up Joplin school achievements.

It's put up or shut up time for Rodney right now. It's one thing to criticize the Globe; anyone can do that. Let's see if he can deliver a superior news product. The community's response to the Daily seems to be a collective yawn, with a few exceptions such as the parents of athletes.

Maybe you should read the comments. He was President of the School Board at the time and was criticizing the blatant negativity of the Globe. The Daily has more positive coverage on Joplin schools in there first month than the Globe has all year.
