Let’s Pretend Everything Is Amazing For 2 Weeks

April 21st, 2014 · 2 Comments

The secret to Derby Pie’s success: magic, obviously. Don’t even try explaining it. [WDRB] Looky there, it’s Mitch McConnell spreading minimum wage fear. Instead of spreading racially-charged anti-Obama rhetoric (and that’s what it is— fear of a black man or a scary Muslim, at least in Kentucky), Granny Mitch ought to focus on ripping apart [...]

Newspaper Avoids Beecher Terrace Sensationalism

February 14th, 2014 · Comments Off

Hype-central (WAVE3) has spent a year yammering on about crime in one of the poorest areas in Kentucky: Beecher Terrace.

Why Louisville Remains In The Dark: Its Media

December 12th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Louisville SHOULD Leave The Pension System

October 23rd, 2013 · 1 Comment

It may not be obvious now, but work to redevelop Whiskey Row along Louisville’s Main Street continues. [WDRB] Like we said on Twitter before this was a thing, it’s not happening.

Still Ignoring All But The Puppies & Rainbows

October 15th, 2013 · Comments Off

The latest ball juggling (we’re keeping it PG-13) for the Arnolds from A Kentucky Newspaper: Private citizens have stepped up while the federal government has stayed shut down to provide important services to children in need, as well as offering up basic decency to the families of soldiers who have died for their country. John [...]
