Our Community Cannot Live Successfully In Denial

April 8th, 2014 · 2 Comments

That denial: pretending that racism isn’t alive and well in Louisville and that this is the most compassionate, amazing place on earth. We all love the city but let’s get real and quit it with the hype. If you love it, you’ve gotta be real with it. No, folks, allowing comments to remain doesn’t mean [...]

WAVE Knocks Another One Out Of The Park

January 30th, 2014 · 2 Comments

How on earth can a legitimate news organization run claims like these without comment from the guy or an attorney? Remember, this station prides itself on journalistic integrity. They’re not from court documents, aren’t backed up by any police records that we can find, come from some guy who claims to have met him on [...]

Everything’s Still Puppies & Rainbows, Move Along

December 30th, 2013 · 3 Comments

No Wonder The Public Was Passive On Bridges

October 28th, 2013 · 7 Comments

So this is a thing? There needs to be an “official” station for regurgitating Ohio River Bridges Debacle press releases? No wonder WHAS11 folks are bitter these days. This kind of crap and the new ND pushing actual journalists to cover hyped up nonsense.

Sounds Like Housing Is Still A Maddening Disaster

May 10th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Does Kentucky’s new Religious Freedom Act really protect religion, or does it potentially cause discrimination? The issue is still raging weeks after the bill became law.
