Re: “Media Watch

One of your best columns ever JS. You're actually funny. If you can draw you might eventually replace Fitz.

Not to nitpick. But the building on Oracle and Fort Lowell used to be a LaBelle's (used to work there during college). As for a Best Buy, I don't ever recall that being located there.

Re: “Media Watch

Star has big story today about a local health insurer anticipating job cuts next year ... but silence about its own staff reductions.
Double standard.

Telling it like it is Schu. Good job. Sometimes the truth hurts.

Re: “Media Watch

Even though the Star laid off a ton of people in 2011 (five years ago yesterday, in fact), they had been steadily hiring people again in the last couple years. There have been quite a few names in the paper that are completely unfamiliar to the folks who were let go in the big bloodletting. It seems maybe they couldn't afford to be making all those hires after all. Sad. Meanwhile, notice who DIDN'T get the ax this time (or any other time) -- any member of the top-heavy management.

Re: “Media Watch

Nothing to report about the layoffs at the Star?

Re: “Media Watch

Is that some strange variation of Pig Latin where you are actually referencing Elliott Pitts?

Whether it's a variation of Pig Latin or not, it's still strange.

Re: “Media Watch

Maybe it's time to report on the OTHER huge story floating around the Tucson media that NOBODY is willing to report on. About someone named Plliott Eitts. Y'all have had THAT story since December.

Re: “Media Watch

Mr Som and his STUPID BARBIE wife should spend some time volunteering at our Gospel Rescue Mission. Maybe sell the BMW and give the money to a drug rehab program. Mr Som there is something called Karma. I guess this story hits a hot button with me. They almost killed their baby because they wanted to do coke REALLY??? And the fancy house and the Tiffany jewelry. Not every drug addict lives on the street. Rant Rant Rant

Re: “Media Watch

And you wonder why your industry is held in such low regard?

Re: “Media Watch

You go out of your way to emphasize, repeatedly, that local media knew about Som weeks before the story finally hit. I don't know if you included it that way to save face, but it just makes you (and the other media you implicate by association) look really bad.

Re: “Media Watch

Maybe the medias BEST crime reporter was all coked up. That is now, a simple explanation.

Re: “Media Watch

The question that should be asked -- and answered -- is why did the media sit on this story about one of its own?

At approx. 37 y/o, I did not know he was so young! (Never met the guy.)

Re: “Media Watch

Phis is an interesting guy. I enjoyed his pieces in ADS often. And I remember him doing movie reviews on the radio several years ago. I have heard many hard-luck stories from authors trying to get published or find a way to make it their chosen career, Phil V. is one of those guys I hope it happens for.

As "DJ Schu," the author is part of this "fledgling effort."

Re: “Media Watch

"Lee continues to benefit from revenue sharing arrangements via TNI."

I don't know where to begin on this sentence. For one, Lee and Gannett co-owned TNI; this sentence makes it sound like TNI was somehow doling out money.

But more important, TNI hasn't existed for several years. It dissolved under former Star publisher John Humenik, who is what, 2-3 publishers ago? The entire building is now Arizona Daily Star. If anything, it's Gannett -- which doesn't even publish anything locally anymore -- that "continues to benefit" from a profit-sharing arrangement. Lee's Arizona Daily Star is the one doing all the earning and therefore SHOULD benefit. (But again, it's not under the auspices of TNI, which doesn't exist.)

I know you love to bag on the Star, but when you're including actual news about the place, you might want to double-check your "facts" because what you think you know might not be true anymore.

Radio isn't the only medium that goes through changes.
