CPB: WHDD’s Marshall Miles Ethically Challenged

Update: Miles is lashing out at both me and the CPB ombudsman. He is clearly worried. * * * * * * * One of our local radio stations, which brands itself as “the smallest NPR station in the nation,” has been slammed for poor ethics after its head decided to run for a regionalRead MoreRead More

Cowgill and Lovallo On Newtown and the 2nd Amendment

Dangerous Dan Lovallo and I discuss the issues of the day Dec. 21 on WAPJ.

A Breath Of Fresh Air In Region One

For those of you who are following our local regional school district, but are frustrated by the lack of available voices in the media, you’re in luck. Former Region One chairman John Mauer has revived his blog, Stoneforge Chronicles, and has — at least for the time being — decided to focus his energies onRead MoreRead More

Miles Lost The Battle After All

Remember this controversy about the CATV6 video that Marshall Miles demanded be taken down from Mike Flint’s blog, Curious Citizen. Well, unless Miles wants to take Flint to federal court, it looks like what Mike did (download a CATV6 video of a municipal meeting, pare it down to a few seconds, repost to his ownRead More

CATV6 Pig Fest

Update: No, now it looks like he has belatedly blocked them. Got to get up pretty early in the morning to put one over on Miles. * * * * * * Oh, Marshall Miles has stopped blocking some of the embeds. I guess it wasn’t a copyright violation after all? Or maybe he hasRead More

CTDA On The Air

Just got an email from a producer for WTIC-1080. I’m told ex-Gov. John Rowland would like to interview me tomorrow about my most recent op-ed for CT News Junkie: Blame It On Malloy: How The GOP Can Win In CT. The segment can be streamed live on the station’s website and should air between 4 – 4:30 p.m.Read More

No One Could Be This Stupid

Update 2: Now Miles has disabled embedding for the video in question. Smart move. Only took him a few days to figure it out. I have embedded another CATV6 video below the old one just to see if it works. It does. Update: I’ve heard rumblings in town that First Selectmen Curtis Rand’s comments about theRead More

Linda Gets Smacked

Another great takedown today of Linda McMahon by Chris Powell of the Journal Inquirer. McMahon has always been a world-class phoney, as embodied by her career in sleaze and smut. But her campaign against “career politicians” is especially offensive. Turns out that even as she rails against lifetime pols like the recently vanquished Chris Shays and —Read More

It’s Going To Be A Long Night

No, the primaries aren’t necessarily going to be squeakers. But I will be laboring long into the night regardless of the outcomes. First, I’m going to Falls Village to report primary results for the Associated Press. After filing the results by phone, waiting for the head moderator’s return and faxing it in to AP inRead More

Tables Are Turned In New Canaan Media Scandal

Is there anything more fun to watch than when media outlets themselves become the focus of scandalous news stories? Such is the case down in Fairfield County, where a now-fired reporter at the New Canaan News was found to have fabricated sources and quotes in at least 25 articles over the last 18 months.Read More
