Carty questions the TFP's balls - July 6 opinion by Toledo Free Press editor Michael Miller: "Carty Finkbeiner called this week, unhappy with our July 1 story about Thomas Morrissey's recall effort hitting the 5,000 signature mark. [Carty] called in to question my news judgment in reporting the group's progress. During the mayor's conversation with Toledo Free Press Publisher and President Thomas Pounds, the mayor implied we lack what my Libbey High School football coach Dave Merritt used to call “testicular fortitude.” "

Buckeye Internet and Phone Disruptions - I saw a topic about Buckeye internet/phone outages but it was too old to add comments. Here are my recent comments which encompass June 24, 2007 to July 1, 2007.

Toledo Talk's BrianinVero gets mention in Today's Toledo Free Press - On page A17, in the Toledo Free Press Media Watch, former Blade Columnist Russ Lemon is interviewed and mentions that since leaving Toledo for West Palm Beach, Florida, that he has run into former Toledoans George Burton and "BrianinVero" of the "Toledo Talk blog." Way to go Brian. For some reason, I get the Free Press delivered on Saturday, so I don't think the links are up yet, but well done sir. Please, let us know the details of your encounter if you read this. Also, this is a good plug for Toledo Talk.

Sandusky Register Publishes CCW Lists - In his infinite wisdom (and no doubt an attempt to bolster circulation) the Editor of the Sandusky Register, Matt Westerhold, published a comprehensive list of concealed weapons licensees for the counties served by the Register. (You may recall that WNWO Channel 24 also did this awhile back to bolster their ratings. Ummmm...still not doing too well, are they?)

News coverage of tonight's storm - The storm(s) that rolled through around dinnertime tonight produced some thunder, lightning and somewhat heavy rain. At 6:30, Channel 11 was still on the air with special coverage. I turned to Channel 13 and they weren't covering it, the national news was on. I don't know how long 11 was on with the coverage because I turned it off. Now come on - this was your typical storm that pops up during the summer in muggy weather. Now I suppose WTOL will be on the air with commercials tomorrow saying how they were the only channel to provide special coverage. I am getting so tired of it! Anybody else with me?

Walton's reflections - ("Thomas Walton will retire June 30 as Editor and Vice President of The Blade.") Walton writes: "On the whole, I would not have traded being a witness to history for any other job I could imagine. I've met presidents and movie stars, heroes and cowards, millionaires and homeless, scoundrels and crooks, and even a king and queen. I found them all fascinating, just not for the same reasons."

Man in wheelchair has 'ride of a lifetime' - This story blew my mind. I don't know what is more amazing- the fact that this actually happened or that the man in the wheelchair was not killed.

Blade to meet with unions in Cleveland this weekend - I'm surprised that I haven't seen this posted yet. Not information that has been released publicly yet, but there are enough posters on the board with ties to either the Blade or to the unions that I'd have figured someone would have leaked the info here already.

Greensburg, Kansas Tornado: Allan Detrich First on the Scene - Less than a month after resigning in disgrace from the Blade, he and his storm chasing crew were first on the scene of the devastating tornado in Greensburg, Kansas. That's got to be the fastest recovery from scandal that anyone has ever pulled off without seeking forgiveness from Jesus.

Blade photographer resigns over altered photo - "Last week Detrich admitted manipulating a photograph that ran on the front page of the Blade, but said he meant to use the doctored photo for personal use and transmitted it to the paper by accident. In an e-mail Monday, Blade assistant managing editor for administration Luann Sharp said Detrich had resigned effective April 7. Detrich said he was planning to start a new business with two friends. He described the venture as a weather disaster training service, a project not related to photography. Detrich has been writing about his situation on his personal blog, PictureThis."

Al Jazeera on local cable TV - "On March 19, Buckeye CableSystem will begin showing Al Jazeera English, the world’s first English-language news channel headquartered in the Middle East. The new network is vastly different from its older cousin, the controversial Arab-language Al Jazeera, which is seen largely in the Middle East. The English-language network’s coverage is broader, and it has hired journalists away from the BBC and CNN. Buckeye executives say they have viewed the channel for some time and find it balanced and interesting."

Some thoughts on Miller's 'Blog This' TFP column - In the latest issue of the Toledo Free Press, Editor in Chief Michael Miller said: "When I have something to say, on this page or while posting on a blog site, I use my name. That's accountability." That's true. He does use his full name here. Before I share my thoughts on anonymous Web postings, I have to wonder how last fall's sparky incident at Toledo Talk plays into this? If you have forgotten the incident or are unaware of it, read this and this and especially this comment by me. A local "journalist" makes, in my opinion, fraudulent postings here. Yet, this person writes a weekly column for the Toledo Free Press.
