A scoop of something

It's hard to believe that the Portland Business Journal's editor is actually on line claiming a "scoop" with today's story that the Governor Hotel has been sold:

Culverwell uncovered another nice story with her page 3 piece on the recent sale of downtown Portland’s The Governor Hotel, a popular spot for business events.

Neither story came off a press release or other "official" announcement. She got both stories the old-fashioned way: working the phones, talking with sources and using her deep list of contacts.

Would that include reading this blog a week ago?

I'm not sure what's more pathetic, that they're taking credit that they obviously don't deserve or that a professional reporter doing some actual journalism is a newsworthy event in Portland these days.

I think this guy might work for them too. When he stops running just put your cursor about a 1/2 inch above his head. There is just no honor among those who will go onto the computer and snatch another's property.


Boss praising worker is something we support. But don't claim exclusivity without checking to see if it's true.

Fact-checking? Portland media? Perhaps not compatible.

Jack, you are now Deep Bog!

She is probably their worst reporter. I keep waiting to see the announcement that she is leaving for a Metro or CoP position.

Just goes to show us how pathetic the local rags are.

This signifies the depths to which the mainstream media has sunk -- trumpeting a story as actually reported vs. republished from copy secured from a publicity flack.

A dittoscoop of nothing:
Limbaugh went to rantville Friday, riding for an hour on the story of non-consensual but now-legal sex with a deceased spouse in Egypt. Except: there's no story there.
Egypt 'necrophilia law'? Hooey, utter hooey. Christian Science Monitor

'Necrophilia law'? Don't believe everything you read on the Internet, kids. At least until there's like, you know, some proof.

Now his hypnoprogagandized group is out there echoing the fiction. Sounding quite like the smattering of radio-driven gun nuts aroused to get concealed-carry outfits and be cowboy, catapulting from their cult to everyone to get an outfit and be a cowboy too.
