I’ll start this update with a statement. I am sure that some brain dead idiot is going to threaten me with the FCC. Here is the answer, we can have ‘nipple slips’, we can have four letter words! The FCC have no bearing on this. So, forget it!
Now we have that cleared up, lets get to the story.
My panel today was Jan Barrett, TJ Hart, Denny Griffin, and William Cobra Staubs.
There was some movement (sideways) in the Caylee Anthony story, and we spent a few minutes discussing it. The bulk of the time though was spent on the still missing Haleigh Cummings.
The past week actually revealed little in the search for Haleigh Cummings, but it revealed a great deal about the press! At what point does the writer, or broadcaster say â€œEnoughâ€.
Last week showed who is real and who is Memorex in the press!
What are the facts in the Haleigh Cummings case? I’ll be honest, I do not know. If I did, I would have written an article naming the culprit months ago.
The Haleigh Cummings story makes my head spin. But I do know that there are people that give a damn. TJ Hart stepped up to the plate this week, and both Jan and I say â€œYay TJâ€!
When you smell a rat, you do not buy into it. Other journalists opted to be swayed, but not TJ. He walked away from a bogus angle on a story, I can not tell you how proud I am to say I know him!
Todays program only touched the underbelly of the news business. It is unfortunate that it took time away from the search for Haleigh Cummings, but, it might just give the average reader a new insight into the ugly world of News.
You can listen to the entire program here.
