Pretty bad when the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is this predictable.
Still…. as of 4:15pm …. no mention by the news department at the Journal. If they ever do cover it, I’ll bet you it shows up on Daywatch after 5pm, in a classic “we have to cover it but we don’t want to ” document dump.Daywatch:
FRIDAY, May 4, 2007, 5:10 p.m.Thanks for even bothering to cover it, guys. Perhaps they'll surprise us tomorrow with a decent editorial. This is the what they're reporting:
By Tom Held
McGee Sr. pulled off the air
Jones said he would meet with McGee Saturday morning to discuss the former Milwaukee alderman's offensive comments and the prospects of his return to the air.Of course, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, over 24 hours behind everyone else, doesn't mention that the story broke on the blogs. Maybe someday.
McGee buys his time on the station that Jones has owned since 1972.
Jones took McGee's show off the air for a short period in 2004 after he used an obscenity during the "Word Warriors" show.
In this instance, Jones has not determined whether he will allow McGee back on the air.
"I am going to make sure that never happens again," Jones said. "I will guarantee myself that.
"I don't know just what course of action that I will have to take."
As for Jones, might I suggest that for the sake of what is left of his reputation and the reputation of his radio station and newspaper he sever all ties with McGee?
Update! 8:27PM If this interview with Channel 6, complete with threats of violence, doesn't pull McGee Sr off the air permanently, I guess nothing ever will. (ht: Ask Me Later)
