Re: “Activist Jeanne Clark to run for city council (UPDATED)

The P-G has changed their story -- and headline -- three times. First, it was an article just on Gilman, then Clark added, now Hens-Greco.

Re: “What if the Tea Party Was Green?

"The story was first reported by online journalism outfit Pro Publica last week, but didn't get any local MSM traction outside of this blog (which yeah, doesn't really count) until last night, when Ed Rendell held a press conference expressing horror at the situation."

Actually, Bob Mayo also reported on this on WTAE on the 9th. See here:

Re: “City Council: the fear of fear itself

Man, I had wondered about that quote from Kail-Smith. I was going to blog something brief about it. THANK YOU for investigating that!

Re: “The Two Dan Onoratos

You're kind of shorthanding this so that it loses all meaning.

In 2007, Onorato most certainly DID not only skip answering questions, but disappeared the questions themselves. See:

That was mentioned by bloggers this time around in reference to his LGBT cred.

On this year's form, a portion of his answers were missing on the SCSD's website due to no fault of Onorato, but that was quickly corrected and did not become a real issue.

Re: “My last committee-related post for a while, I promise (with special bonus announcement)

Just remember, if some caller gets cut off -- even if it really, really isn't your fault -- you will be blamed for it and no one will ever let you forget it, especially siblings (speaking from experience).

Re: “I just don't know who to trust anymore

It's pretty simple really. Once a rumor is out there, the MSM can then comment on the rumor. That way it's not them making rumors public -- it's them *reporting* on rumors in the public.

A prime example of this is the Ravenstahl handcuff story. Apparently the MSM had heard rumblings but nothing was published until John McIntire blogged on it which gave them all permission to report on what McIntire had posted.
