I try not to go more than a week without posting something. Unfortunately, it has been 11 days dues to holidays that wonâ€™t be letting up anytime soon, and also my IT support specialist classes. (Last night, I finished Course 2, Week 1, out of 5 courses.) I just donâ€™t like blogs that give a … Continue reading Eric Trump and his shekels
I've avoided writing much about Sinclair Broadcast Group trying to buy Tribune Media because Iâ€™ve been busy and I don't want to jinx any possibility the merger will fall through. But there has been some news, and the biggest for a local TV market could be Miami/Fort Lauderdale (of course!). Youâ€™ll remember, one of the … Continue reading Media mega-merger may be moving closer, impacting Miami
I have a lot more on Marjory Stoneman Douglas heroÂ Emma GonzÃ¡lez, not a hero for surviving but for her activism after. She has probably suffered more than her surviving schoolmates after Februaryâ€™s shooting massacre. In late March, USA Today reported Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King drew criticism when someone from his campaign teamÂ mocked GonzÃ¡lezâ€™s â€˜lookâ€™ … Continue reading In defense of Emma GonzÃ¡lez, not that she needs it but deserves it
Iâ€™m actually going to start optimistically and thank you for reading. The blog is getting very close and may have 12,000 hits after this post. (It's at 11,927 as I start formatting at 7:11pm). Please, if you havenâ€™t, subscribe with your email address or WordPress account. There are places on the right side of your … Continue reading Salaries, senators and a spat between a Fox News host and the A.P.
It's nice when Americans exercise their First Amendment rights (freedom ofÂ religion, speech, the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances) with good intentions, and that should be encouraged. Last Saturday, many in the country were shocked afterÂ March for Our Lives rallies were … Continue reading Tiffany Trump’s trouble, what unions could do to Amazon and the media
OK. Letâ€™s get this right. Lawmakers and many Americans are angry about Facebook and how it handled 50 million usersâ€™ peopleâ€™s data, but President Trump really hates Amazon. First, itâ€™s owned by Jeff Bezos, who also owns The Washington Post, which Trump also hates. Second, sources told Axios Trump has talked about changing Amazonâ€™s tax … Continue reading Who Trump hates more, Facebook or Amazon? Oh, and Stormy Daniels’ motion to make him speak!
First, I want to go thank and apologize to everyone who read my last post. It was way too long. Yes, it contained what I think was good information on several subjects. It happened to be on a snow day and I had nothing better to do then let out some of what I was … Continue reading Call to action: Help stop Sinclair from taking over Tribune
Gotta love a snow day if you donâ€™t have anywhere to be. Yes, I have a busy week ahead and things to prepare, but they donâ€™t require going out. The TV people were right this time. Itâ€™s almost 1pm and Iâ€™m supposedly getting 3 inches of snow an hour, which should end up as 6-10 … Continue reading Flakes and facts, lots on my mind
Whatâ€™s famous to you obviously relies on where youâ€™ve been and what youâ€™ve noticed, but these people have had national exposure for at least part of their long working lives. It took longer than a New York minute, but Howard Stern would be happy to hear Warner Wolf is suing Don ImusÂ -- and it has … Continue reading Famous man, 80, suing famous man, 77, for age discrimination
Two articles got my attention as I recover, tonight. You'll remember yesterday, I couldn't read or even think. Now, look how far I've come -- and for how many hours! The first, called How Facebook Can Grow Its Media 'Likes'Â by Harry A. Jessell on TVNewsCheck continues the discussion I wrote on Rupert Murdoch saying Mark … Continue reading Facebook, Twitter, and Fox (Fox x 14)!
