Do You Remember Chris Parente From WAVE?

September 30th, 2014 · Comments Off

Surely you remember Chris Parente from back in the day at WAVE3. He’s had some, ahem, fun lately: Something tells us he wishes he could have a do-over so that video won’t have been seen millions of times. And what the heck kind of ego does a person have to have to be so unprepared [...]

WHAS11 Made A Great Call Removing This One

April 17th, 2014 · Comments Off

Dozens of people have written in to ask about this: FROM FACEBOOK Do we really need to count all the reasons she needed to be let go as a journalist? REALLY? No, we don’t. Because character assassination — the kind she jealously practices when it comes to her colleagues and a certain future political candidate/current [...]

March 12th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Seriously. WHAS11′s Joe Arnold stepped up in a big way today and live tweeted his colonoscopy. Go to his Twitter feed immediately and read all about it. Retweet it. Share with your friends. Then check out the Colon Cancer Alliance and the Colon Cancer Prevention Project. The more people like Joe speak up, the more [...]

WAVE’s Eric Flack Continues JCPS Nonsense

March 7th, 2014 · 2 Comments

The last time we ripped apart one of Eric Flack’s (WAVE3) stories, we stopped short of calling his work absolutely terrible. Yes, good reporters can do terrible work. So let’s do that now: Eric Flack is doing terrible work and ought to be replaced when his contract is up. Because he’s doing terrible work and [...]

Local Paper Loses Another To A TV Station

January 31st, 2014 · Comments Off

A Kentucky Newspaper is losing yet another reporter to a television station. But this time to WLKY – not WDRB. Digital guy Mark Vanderhoff is leaving effective today, according to multiple folks at the Courier-Journal. Since he’s going to a competitor, there’s no two-week notice. Definitely a big loss for the paper as it attempts [...]

Joe Arnold Actually Kicked Butt & Took Names

March 5th, 2013 · 9 Comments

We love to give Joe Arnold crap because he’s one of the few remaining political reporters on local teevee. But he’s right on this one (read from the bottom up): A lazy local newspaper reporter couldn’t be bothered to do actual reporting on the “OMG ASHLEY JUDD NUDITY!!!1!” non-story. So Joe Arnold decided it was [...]

Hear A Local Teevee Guy Lose His Marbles Live

October 31st, 2012 · 5 Comments

Occasionally during an incident where the media is present, a reporter or camera person will lose their marbles, get super-egotistical and treat emergency workers or fellow media folks with absolute disrespect. Like this incident a few minutes ago: Oops? We can only assume it was someone with WLKY who needs an attitude adjustment. Because this [...]

Get Ready For Barry Bernson’s New Book & DVD

June 25th, 2012 · 1 Comment

We’re not fans of giving people free advertising – especially when those people are Carol Butler, who had that fancy do-nothing-for-$80,000-per-year “job” with Jerry Abramson. So you know this is a big deal. We’re fans of Barry Bernson and think getting hyped up over his upcoming book is a good thing: The DVD alone (you [...]

How Much Hype Can Local TV Produce This Week?

May 17th, 2012 · 3 Comments

Here’s what police can’t tell you about this case: they believe Gregory Holt’s murder was in retaliation for an attempted murder the previous evening – by his mother. And drugs are allegedly involved. A lot of drugs. Seems the prosecutor’s office has threatened some officers for trying to conduct a deeper investigation, so, uh, it’s [...]

The MSD Crooks Are Getting A Gigantic Free Pass

December 21st, 2011 · Comments Off

We’re still wondering why these MSD folks aren’t getting indicted like the people at the Blue Grass Airport. They pulled the same stunts, used money for personal gain, spent half a million bucks on random charitable contributions, $42,000 on office plants. It’s a farce that Greg Fischer is keeping Bud Schardein and allowing him to [...]
