Re: “Media Watch

Radio question: There is a new DJ on KHIT 107.5 at night.
Is she actually there? Or is that another pre recorded / syndicated program?

Re: “Media Watch

Should've mentioned. Walt was a good man and an excellent journalist.

Re: “Media Watch

Funny how hypocritical this column is. Always slamming the azds and lee and it practices but now tw is part of its own monopoly with this 10/13 acquisition, so much for local diversity in the print media.

Re: “Media Watch

FYI: May TV Sweeps started Thursday. A fact one MIGHT expect to see in a media column.

Re: “Media Watch

Re: “Media Watch

Can;t see that they would get rid of Media Watch and keep someone like Dahaney who prattles on about Girls BB and Charter Schools. Media Watch has lots of interesting information

Re: “Media Watch

You can say this is a blue town. But if you factor in the co-existence of two conservative talk radio outlets, the color is a brilliant purple. You really have to feel for those who cry for civility and rationality. No, thanks. I believe that is a smoke-screen hiding an effort to stifle opposing opinion.

The best thing KCUB could do would be to go back to Country Oldies.

Re: “Media Watch

I tried the "The Truth" many times and found it to be more blah-blah-blah right-wing radio, which didn't really seem representative in a community with a clearly Democratic majority that keeps getting elected here in Tucson. The national appetite for angry, spewing people on TV and radio (Fox, Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, etc.) making money may seem insatiable, but what we really need is reasoned discourse among critical thinkers, and politicians who are capable of reasoned problem-solving. Sure, there are many who can listen to a Hannity diatribe, but most cannot.

Re: “Media Watch

doesn't KWBA air a LIVE weeknight-only 9:00 p.m. newscast from KGUN 9 ? I think they already do as they have been since March of 2009.

Re: “Media Watch

To all of the critics of "Professional" Wrestling..........don't you get it?

The WWE is nothing but a Soap Opera aimed at men. You have your good guys, your villains, (often the two are interchangeable), and you have several "story lines" going on.

Just like All MY Children except Erica is played by The Undertaker.

Re: “Media Watch

And by the way Dan & John, the Cicala story was a worthy "item" for a column, but not worthy of being stretched/padded to fill an ENTIRE column.

That was just "mailing it in."
