Mike: I'm generally offended by anyone using multiple question marks at the end of a sentence. I'm sure you understand.
Just because he's the only one doing it in a town with one horrible newspaper, doesn't mean he's doing a good job. No need to get so defensive.
Its called MEDIA WATCH. I thought is was worth reading.
Mike: I'm editing this column. It's a funny story. Schuster puts together 52 columns a year covering a subject no one else in this town bothers to. Get over yourself.
Couldn't agree with Lee and Mike more. Sheesh. Who cares about a goofy TV sport reporter taking a tumble. It's always all about them.
Your entire "Media Watch" is one item that is old news? Nothing about something that came out more recently (March 25) than Cicala's fall, the February local news ratings??? Who's editing/checking this column???
You're watching the media and this is all you could report on?
She's been very cordial on the few occasions I've communicated with her on line.
Personally, I think she's one of the best voice-over people in Tucson.
How about the results the local February TV Sweeps? Or November, for that matter.
Y'all are assuming she gets paid hourly, which probably is not the case.
Would that be a great deal? 4000 hours times $7.50 an hour...still not a realistic wage..but all too typical around Tucson.
Joan Lee was working 15 hour days? Of course that means KOLD was giving her TWO full-time paychecks, right?
They are either excited or stimulated, sometimes highly motivated, but it is all boring to read about.
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.
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.
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'.
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.
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.
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.
Why are people always "excited"? Trite.
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?
