As a former broadcaster, I am very opinionated regarding local broadcast and news media.

Yes, it matters what they say.

As a former broadcaster, it’s easy to pick up things said on TV and radio that I find extremely irritating.  20 or 30 years ago, I would brag about Baltimore’s TV stations.  I worked all over the country and rarely would I find a local TV market as sharp as that in Baltimore.  Sure, there’s […]

What Would You Do?

This is a touchy subject, but it’s time to give it a good feel.  Last night ABC ran a special “What Would You Do?”  The preface looked easy enough.  However, I think there was an undertone of ABC trying to push more Political Correctness crap on the public.  To do this, they made the viewer […]

Sitting and Waiting

Everyone was shocked this weekend when a goofball in Arizona went on a shooting rampage.  When I first heard about it, I was waiting to hear how Obama, Pelosi, or some other Lib was going to blame George Bush.  unbelievably, to my knowledge, that hasn’t happened yet. Second thought was  at least we’ll hear some […]

Big Pipes

I have had it up to here with all this sensationalized PRESS about the homeless guy with the great voice.  (Again, I’m not a racist / but I’m gonna say it)..  This would not be a news story if this guy wasn’t a minority.  I know of two people in just my immediate area who […]

“Dennis, You’re On… Dennis, Dennis”

I’ve noticed something from Baltimore’s CBS, TV affiliate WJZ, Channel 13.  One of their longtime reporter’s Dennis Edwards hasn’t been filing reports as normal, in his arrogant, Super Fly style. Edwards would’ve served better on radio.  On TV he seemed pompous but the reporting was usually thorough.  I’ve just learned that Edwards left WJZ in […]

Another Raven

People often ask me why is it that I was a huge Baltimore Colts fan but I don’t support the Ravens.  As I’ve explained repeatedly, we’re in different times.  The football played by the BALTIMORE Colts and teams of that era was a different game and the players were true professionals.  Today’s sports are heavily […]

Not Quite

The media is really getting on my nerves, as they constantly refer to this recent Congressional bill as the “Obama Tax Cut Bill”..  Since it is no such thing!  It’s an extension of the tax cuts originally started under “W”..  They’re attempt here is to muddy the waters, so that when the 2012 election comes […]

No I’m Not Jealous

This is the first thing someone says to me, whenever I voice this complaint.  Honestly, it’s not jealousy.  As you know, I’m a big fan of Fox News. But, there’s one thing they’ve done recently that really gets under my skin. As you’re aware, one of the morning hosts is Steve Doocey.  He has a […]

Hoping for Hope

I bet you thought this would be a writing about some charity or needy cause.  WRONG..  Over the past few weeks, I’ve really come to enjoy a TV show named “Raising Hope“.  For those who haven’t watched this, it has a lot of hard-edged comedy.  Cloris Leachman is in it so you know, it has […]

Do You Buy Organic Foods?

I have a deal for you.  Since the 70’s I’ve heard about organic food and how it’s soooo much better for you, health wise.  I’ve always thought that it made no sense.  Another one of these meaningless issues for the modern hippies to toss around. This morning, John Stossel (a somewhat reputable reporter) appeared on […]
