Cover Up Or Newspaper Production Problem?

That’s what all the libruls in town want to know.

Check out the web version of the Courier-Journal’s endorsement of Greg Fischer:


See that? Two different versions of the story. One attacking Tyler Allen (in print), one not (the web).

Readers are going to see the web endorsement (because who subscribes to the paper, anyway?), then they’re going to read Tyler Allen’s response:

I am the only candidate for mayor, Democrat or Republican, who the editorial board of this newspaper singled out as “unsuited for the job.” They attacked me not because of my character, qualifications or accomplishments but because, as a private business person, I publicly challenged the Ohio River Bridges Project.

And have no idea what he’s talking about. Likely to think he’s delusional, even.

Quite convenient, isn’t it, that this little mistake would occur just a few days before the primary election.

But who am I to question the paper? Coincidences and mistakes happen.

  1. The Courier-Journal has been doing this type of thing IN PRIMARY ELECTIONS for decades. That’s why we’ve wound up with leaders like Harvey Sloane, David Armstrong and, (yes) Mayor McCheese (as you all call him). All nice guys, but having no managerial or business skills. They’ve presided over a city that no longer competes with Charlotte, Cincy, Indy, Nashville of Oklahoma City — and instead is a college town (self-proclaimed) competing with Lexington and Knoxville and Omaha. The citizens SIMPLY HAVE TO WAKE UP TO THIS newspaper.

  2. There is no shame in being a college city. For instance other growing cities like Austin, Tulsa, Providence, or Omaha are succesful without having major league profesional sports franchises. Louisville could actually use the lack of major pro sports franchises to its advantage if it was able to convince the state of KY to allow pro sports gambling. What is shamefull is if Louisville becomes the only city in the history of the world to expand an elevated waterfront expressway and places a massive quadruple stacked Los Angeles style interchange on its image defining waterfront. Overhead traffic lanes will define our waterfront and city for the next 110 years irreparably harming the city’s ability to compete for the intelectual capitol necessary to compete in the 21st century and beyond. After 2024 Louisville’s downtown waterfront will have more square footage covered by elevated freeway lanes than any other city in the world.

  3. Austin, Tulsa, Providence and Omaha!!! My God, what alien space ship did you deboard? You’ve conveniently switched the cities that we’re supposed to compete with. Used to be Charlotte, Indy, Nashville, Cincy and Atlanta. Now its TULSA. The reason for your ‘switch’ is that WE LOST THE PREVIOUS COMPETITION as all of them passed us by like we were standing still. Actually, we compete with Lexington and Knoxville, because all we think of is UofL beating UofK and being better than UT. This place needs to wake up — the world has passed us by while we sat on our duffuses and self congratulated ourselves on being a ‘college town.’
