Editorial Reviews

The Oklahoman is the largest news organization in Oklahoma, dedicated to coverage of news, business, sports and entertainment that is pertinent to Oklahomans. It is an institution like no other in Oklahoma. It has published continuously since 1894, before Oklahoma was a state, and has been owned by the Gaylord family since 1903. Today, the news staff publishes its work across a variety of mediums -- including the print product, the largest in the state; and NewsOK.com, Oklahoma's largest and most successful news site.

The Kindle Edition of The Oklahoman contains articles found in the print edition, but will not include some images and tables. Also, some features such as the crossword puzzle, box scores and classifieds are not currently available. For your convenience, issues are automatically delivered wirelessly to your Kindle so you can read them each morning.

I've read the Oklahoman for a little while and have been shocked to find that most of the opinion appears on the Opinion page. I couldn't find much in the way of a slant (either right or left) in the news sections. No doubt the Oklahoman will never be considered a proper paper because of this.

The coverage of international and natiional news is pretty good, and I didn't see any problem with the local coverage. I also found the movie reviews useful; as far as I can see, the reviewer hates everything I like and I hate everything he likes. As long as he stays consistent, we can work together. The only thing I would like to have change is a little more coverage of military news like on their website.

As Mr. Donovan pointed out in his review, the design and layout works better than a lot of the other offerings. While I suspect Mr. Donovan and I would agree on few other things, he is a honest man.

First, I will let it be known that I abhor The Oklahoman's editorial policy. It is so far to the right as to be laughable. It is surely the broken template for the "right wing rag." HOWEVER.....

With the above stated as forcefully as I can, I have to commend The Oklahoman for putting together one of the finest Kindle newspaper presentations available. Like most people, I like to read the local paper for coverage of city and state news, local business, culture, entertainment, etc. and The Oklahoman pulls this off with aplomb. The design is very nice with easily navigable links. The closest thing for the Kindle in comparison, format wise, is the format used by The Nation magazine (ha...The Oklahoman will just LOVE that comparison). But it's all pulled off very well.

So, while the reactionary right holds court in the editorial boardroom of The Oklahoman and angers me everyday, I give them high marks for the design, simplicity-of-use and overall quality Kindle design. It hasn't escaped my attention that their website and multimedia offerings far exceed many much larger papers and they clearly "get it," when it comes to New Media. So, in a sense I am not surprised by this excellent Kindle product. It just angers me that I must rise to the defense of the Kindle edition of a newspaper that probably ranks at the bottom for its editorial and opinion page. But this time, credit where credit is due - kudos to The Oklahoman. Good job and five stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed December 31, 2011
By DEWBERY
Most of the reviews listed are about the quality of the newspaper. I read the oklahoman regularly. I enjoy its content. However, the kindle edition is a disappointment. The classifeds and the funnies are not. available. I didn't pay for this so that content would be missing. it should include everything that is in the paper if it were in my hands. Will be unsuscribing.I would rather just buy the paper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of The Kindle Version not the Paper Itself November 15, 2011
First let me say I tried the Kindle version sometime early 2011 and as a few have said they did a great job on the design of the Kindle version. It navigates very well. Definitely recommend it if you want to read the Oklahoman electronically. Just wish they had the 'funnies'; main reason I tried then dropped it. If you don't like the Oklahoman then don't subscribe. It seems most of the reviews were either bashing or applauding the Oklahoman as a newspaper. It seems to me these reviews should be about the production of the product as viewed on the Kindle not personal biases for or against the Oklahoman paper itself. If you don't like the paper don't subscribe to it in the first place.

3.0 out of 5 stars One of the reasons I bought a Kindle March 15, 2009
By 07mom09
The Daily Oklahoman and the Tulsa World are no longer sold in nonmetro areas of Oklahoma. Thus, I am dependent on the Kindle or the internet for state news. Of course, it's not the same as reading the "paper". I am adapting. I would prefer to see less metro content and more national and statewide news. I do think that the conservative material is limited to the opinion page.
