WLKY Has Stretched Its Ruh Ro Headline Wings

November 1st, 2011 by jake · 6 Comments

Did you miss the Orange Man John Boehner speaking in Louisville yesterday? Go watch video of it now. [C-SPAN]

Jack Conway is taking a big hit in a new report on attorneys general and trial lawyers. Naturally, his opponent and the statewide press are missing in action. [Page One]

Pro-tip to Brandon Coan – who loves to foam at the mouth about us to his pals: food truck operators are well aware that the restrictions already existed. And that’s what they’re complaining about. At least get your spin closer to reality before spouting off. [WFPL]

Here we are. Another embarrassing three-page story about the Louisville Orchestra flustercuck. [C-J/AKN]

Yesterday Orange Man John Boehner complained – yet again – about Occupy Wall Street protesters. Because they’re obviously a huge threat to life as we know it. Ha. [HuffPo]

LG&E will be cited again after more flyash was detected on area homes. This is why Louisville can’t have nice things. [FOX41]

The Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen is now open on Frankfort Avenue and you probably need to get there posthaste. They have booze. [Consuming Louisville]

So maybe things aren’t all puppies and rainbows with the closure of ear X-tacy. Now people are struggling to get their merchandise back. Seems a little too soon to complain but whatever. [WAVE3]

Guess the mainstream was wrong about Richie Farmer’s ad being the last for the Williams-Farmer campaign. Robyn Williams stars in the campaign’s latest spot. [Page One]

Louisville ranks 44 out of 938 metro areas for total businesses, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. [Business First]

What the heck is in the water in Louisville? Some crazy ass beat a man to death with a baseball bat. [WHAS11]

Here’s a hyped headline: “Mayor’s Son Arrested On Meth Charges” – nope, not Greg Fischer’s kid. And not Jerry Abramson’s. Can you imagine how crazy the city would have been if the mainstream ever bothered reporting the actions of Jerry’s kid when all the shenanigans went down? [WLKY]

    I just wish they’d learn the difference between an ordinance and a regulation. If they want to chance the regulation, CHANGE THEM. That is directly within Fischer’s control. And maybe, when they knew the ordinance was ready to pass, they should have, well, already gotten the regulations ready – or at least in the works – and made it clear that they were temporarily suspending the existing regulations until new ones were ready.

    I also find it interesting that Sid Abramson is studying communications at Bellarmine – and wants to be a weatherman. If that is the case, why isn’t he studying meteorology?

    Who cares what the kid is studying and why does it matter?

    So! what’s the poop on Abramson’s kid!….the news media had no problem reporting on Chief White’s son!. Why wouldn’t one who knows the details on Jerry & his kid not put it out there?. Other then they are scared of the repercussions & retaliation.Isn’t that the way things have been for so Long? If you disagreed with Jerry or Crossed Him, the wrath of every city agency of enforcement would be up your ass screwing with you any way they could .
