Re: “Media Watch

RE: Journal Management change. Good move. (I hope they don't cut the man's PAY) Radio and TV are related, but very different media. One cannot really do his best work for both at the same time. One or the other will suffer.

And make no mistake. A manager who works at being a manager does a hard days work every day. There are folks in town who don't think so. They cut off their noses to spite their faces.

Re: “Media Watch

1. The fact that Lee Enterprises has been around since the 1800s and yet has NO journalistic tradition associated with the name (unlike say, Pulitzer or Hearst) should tell you all you need to know about the company.
2. I had a similar thought regarding the new Star publisher's lack of connection to actual journalism.
BUT
3. It seems kind of hypocritical to call out another newspaper for its lack of quality journalism in a column that is basically regurgitating what already ran several days ago in that other newspaper (an on-again, off-again competing paper, at that), even going so far as to cite the other paper's story as your source. It's akin to pointing out someone else's typos in a paragraph riddled with them. Just sayin'.

Re: “Media Watch

I wonder if the Star is still deleting comments. They pulled about a dozen or more on the story about the Caesar Chavez holiday. There was nothing wrong about them, they did not violate any terms of service or good taste.
Par for the course for Tucson.

Re: “Media Watch

I met Chuck Aubrey one Saturday morning at the Broadmont MVD office, we had the most interesting discussion about space aliens. I thought he was one interesting fellow, too bad I couldn't get The Jolt on my radio when his show aired.

Re: “Media Watch

The remain "excited" until the next staff clearance. They then can return to being out of a job, thus, less "excited". Life in Tucson on a daily basis.

Re: “Media Watch

Of course they're not writing about him now since he hasn't been on the air in three years. The point was that the Star article stated he'd been on the air for 5 years in 2010, which supports Mr. Schuster's reporting as the show ended the next year. Not sure what his old tribute band has to do with anything, either-did they fire you or did the "loser" talk show host just scare you away?

Re: “Media Watch

That was back in 2010. I don't see The Star writing him up now. Aubrey hit bottom when the jolt fired him at the end if 2010. LOL, he was really messed up with that band Zeppilepsy. What a loser. Now he wants to do a para-political show on 104.1 The Truth! I don't think he knows that people laugh at him and think he's a fool with his ridiculous antigovernment claims. They just don't tell it to his face because he is one scary dude.

Re: “Media Watch

No, I remember the Baron and "Ze Marlena", as his co-host called herself, going to some UFO convention around 2005 and the show lasted until about this time in 2011 when the station blew up so 6 years is about right. And I've listened to The Truth-if you think their hosts aren't removed from reality, you've been watching too much Fox News. Tucson needs a good conspiracy show so we can take the crazy crown from Austin and Alex Jones!

Re: “Media Watch

I remember that Gnosis show too. Baron was one crazy dude. Marlene was pleasant to my ears. Baron Chuck Aubrey can best be called a local yokel and certainly not a local radio veteran. His way out conspiracy theories offer nothing to the local community. Browsing the websites on Tucson radio, one finds no mention of Aubrey. The man is too far removed from reality to carry a show of any worth on The Truth. I'm not completely out of the loop in local radio and I don't remember Gnosis being on the jolt for anything near 6 years. Shooster again pumping up his friends instead of reporting facts in his weekly column. Disappointing, but entertaining as BS usually is.

Re: “Media Watch

lol I remember that Gnosis show, the hosts were crazier than the station. Should be a good fit at "The Truth".

Re: “Media Watch

Yeah I bet Hansne doesn't have as many sources as Andy Morales. #sarcasm
Having read his psots over the years where he claimed to be the only Youth Sports Reporter of note in this City, it's clear that no media member is as self promotional as Andy Morales. Loves himself. #getaclue

Re: “Media Watch

Andy Morales is the source for high school sports in Tucson. Every coach and parent involved in high school sports makes it a practice to read his column on a daily basis. Initially I started going to his site to read about high school football in Tucson but frequently found myself reading features of athletes in all sports. It became very apparent that Andy not only cared about the athletes but that he actually attended many of the events. Good luck Andy, lets hope Tucson cares enough to support you.
