All About Yuppie Arlington
Gee, Scott, I wonder why no one wants to run?
Sun Gazette's parent, American Community Newspapers LLC, only cares about ad revenue and the policy for all its newspapers is for them to support the status quo and suck up to wealthy people and groups possessing lots of disposable income. About 90% of what people try to post to Scott's blog is discarded for being "too controversial."
PS - I can't wait for the economy to improve so I can leave this f'd up company.
Local journalists are easy to bribe, all it takes is a few tickets to a few sold out sporting events.
Scott complains about the Post and Connection Newspapers. (Post is actually worse than the SG when it comes to political reporting and endorsements). But Scott and the SG are beyond printing press releases and venting personal dislikes. He passes up opportunities to cover important meetings and events to chow down at banquets and luncheons. We're talking about a guy whose "personal fitness program" is getting regular liposuctions. We badly need a real local newspaper in Arlington.
An incumbent pol doesn't have to bribe anyone, just tell the 20-something journalists and editorial staff who typically interview the pol that they are very bright and deserve to be working at a much better newspaper and the incumbent pol will write a personal reference to a personal friend VIP at a national media corporation etc., etc.
With all the $#!+ Fisette has pulled on the taxpayers the past few years, McCaffrey gives Fisette a Thumbs Down for starting a meeting late.
See what's going on at the FC News Press? Now that Blackwell Hawthorne is gone the City of FC is no longer going to pay the News Press $40,000 a year to report City news. Nick Benton's another Chamber of Commerce Booster. He boosts Moran the same way McCaffrey boosts Fisette.
Both Benton and McCaffrey are shameless. We are poorly served by both newspapers
McCaffrey is another Urban Village Idiot who hekped make massive gentrification and re-segregation The Arlington Way.
