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 [...]

The Back Story Of WAVE3′s JCPS Coverage

January 28th, 2014 · 6 Comments

We love to hate on Jefferson County Public Schools and have a history of it. Most (all?) of it is well-founded criticism and started with the district’s two previous superintendents/disasters. But. Have you seen Eric Flack’s hit piece on JCPS? If not, here you go. It is a hot mess of slanted, aggressive, Fox News-style [...]

Yes, Racism Alive And Well In Possibility City

January 13th, 2014 · 4 Comments

Media: Potential Suicide Is Not A Twitter Joke

December 31st, 2013 · 2 Comments

If someone’s about to jump to their death, PUT THE DAMN PHONE DOWN. There’s no reason to tweet photos of that! Also no reason to run video footage of it on the noon “news.” Jesus H. It’s like no one has any sense anymore. [Louisville Media Failure] Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said 2013 was the [...]

Everything’s Still Puppies & Rainbows, Move Along

December 30th, 2013 · 3 Comments

It’s tale of two Louisville shopping districts: one seeing a last minute frenzy, the other lackluster sales. The reason(s) everyone but the folks in television and at the newspaper admit: Jerry Abramson and Cordish. [WDRB] Louisville International Airport is nearing completion of two taxiway projects that airport officials say will make it easier and safer [...]

Why Louisville Remains In The Dark: Its Media

December 12th, 2013 · 1 Comment

(And some of its elected officials – but we’re focused on media today.) The State Auditor of Public Accounts released a report on Kentucky Retirement Systems this week. While lacking and elementary as far as audits go, it was still a decent beginning. A nice start at examining the reason (KRS) the state’s finances are [...]

Roads Are Good, Wait, No, They’re Maybe Awful

December 6th, 2013 · 4 Comments

The world just cold comes to an end when snow or ice are in the forecast in the Louisville metro area. We’re all familiar with it and know better than to attempt a Kroger run when flurries get mentioned. What we can never be okay with, though, are contradictory reports from teevee news folks that [...]

January 23rd, 2013 · 6 Comments

You ever read or hear an editor or teevee station manager “editorial” and roll your eyes so hard they hurt? Here’s another one! It’s from Ken Selvaggi of WAVE3. It’s a love fest of Greg Fischer and things that are horribly exaggerated or don’t matter to locals and people who actually pay attention to what’s [...]
