Davis Case Highlights Media Malpractice

We have a media that refuses to inform the public about basic information. She habitually has her license suspended and drove while it was suspended including to public events. She could not even explain what the office she sought did at public debates, even after the first one.

They did not do the most basic profile. It was embarrassing. I do not believe in hit reporting, but it is interesting that some business deal that went south for Arlett was news, some economic difficulty for Donyale Hall around a decade ago was somehow newsworthy. They even unsuccessfully tried to make $20 of recording costs for an endorsement an issue. It is funny that they could not report on someone showing up drunk in swim suits to events until after the primary. They witnessed this before the election then did not tell people. There seemed to be an agenda in play by what was not reported. The people were the losers.

  1. David, you’re starting to worry me. Angry thoughts rattling around in your head come out in long, unfocused, undocumented paragraphs that lack detail.

    Here’s the problem with the Davis story: as far as I can tell from the NJ, there was no public information about her situation (revoked license, speeding, etc.), it all came out after the election.

    I didn’t watch the debate between Davis and Simpler, so I can’t comment on “She could not even explain what the office she sought did at public debates, even after the first one.” Isn’t that a campaign political question, one best served by her opponent making that point over and over again?

    Whereas with hit on Donyale Hall came from publicly-available information. Certainly it was a hit on her, by whom I don’t know, and she deserved better.

    “They even unsuccessfully tried to make $20 of recording costs for an endorsement an issue.” What is this?

    “It is funny that they could not report on someone showing up drunk in swim suits to events until after the primary. They witnessed this before the election then did not tell people.”

    Is this about Scott Walker? To the extent that the NJ was in the tank for the state Republican party’s candidate in the primary, yeah, they ignored giving Walker any ink. Big mistake, we’ll all agree. But again, it is the job of the opposition campaign to bring this stuff to the public’s attention. The newspaper is not the campaign, it is a mirror.

    I’ve saved the bleat about Arlett for last. “[B]ut it is interesting that some business deal that went south for Arlett was news.” I probably missed this, but the New Castle Republican chairman’s blast at him (and Walker) did Arlett no favors.

    Organize your writing, David. Otherwise abandon this blog and go onto Twitter with each one of these when the mood strikes.

  2. Thank you for your advice. Consider it ignored. You can go off topic and whine while I double the readership each week and get back to 250k unique readers. We are now having an impact. I guess that makes you nervous. It will be a lot more in a year because I am back.

  3. “Organize your writing, David.”

    He can’t help it, Skeptic. He’s upset the voters rejected him, and he runs a blog where it’s okay for his buddies like Don to call people “retards”. I’ll bet the retards and cripples and their families in Dover think that kind of thing is just fine.
