The Beachwood Radio Hour #29: The Sun-Times Is An Even Hotter Mess And Endorsements Are Even Bullshittier

:00: Strawberry Rock Show.

:55: Eddie and the Hot Rods at the Double Door on Tuesday night.

1:57: The Sun-Times Is An Even Hotter Mess.

* The Beachwood Radio Hour #28: The Sun-Times Is A Hot Mess.

* The Beachwood Radio Hour #27: Endorsements Are Bullshit.

* McKinney's resignation.

* Every beat a blog.

* LeapSource story was not ready for publication.

* The height of hypocrisy.

* A thought exercise:

SUN-TIMES REPORTER TO JIM KIRK: So I have a few questions for you about McKinney.

KIRK: Just use my statement.


KIRK: Don't give up so easily! C'mon, be a reporter! This is Chicago. Try harder.

REPORTER: Oh, okay, um, McKinney said that . . .

KIRK: . . . Sorry, no comment.

* Ann Marie Lipinski vs. Michael Cooke.

* Carol Marin has also refused to comment, instead only writing this column which cleverly didn't tell us anything we didn't already know.

* No one ever followed up with the Tribune and NBC.

* Everyone got promoted while I lost a major (still unreplaced) revenue source and future partner.

* GTCRauner hired Randy Michaels to run a post-Tribune venture. A lot of local journos went to work for him despite his misogynistic history. Would they have done so if he lost his Trib job due to racism or anti-Semitism instead of sexism?

1:11:08: The Beer Thinker: An Oktoberfest For The Rest Of Us.

1:11:50: The Beachwood Radio Sports Hour #23: It's All Cutler's Fault.
