NEOCH to Give Media Award at Annual Meeting

NEOCH to Award the Journalist of the Year 2005
This blog contains information on the sad state of the media. Every once in a while we compliment the media on their coverage of poverty. At the NEOCH Annual meeting, the Coalition will give out an award to the Journalist of the Year 2005. The tickets for the Annual meeting are reasonably priced and will take place at the lovely Massimo da Milano restaurant on May 5, 2006. Please join the Coalition as we look back on 2005 and look forward to 2006. For more details call NEOCH at 216/432-0540.

Not To Criticize Real Democracy But...
I love the Meet the Bloggers and listen to them whenever I can. Those guys do a great deal of quality work for free, and it feels wrong to criticize. They are the future of real democracy, and most likely the future of journalism. I listened to the Eric Brewer interview, and have to say that it left a lot to be desired. It just seemed like a lot of tossing of softballs, which Brewer seemed to indicate at the end of the interview. I am not a big fan of the corporate biased PD, but they cannot be all wrong all the time with regard to Brewer. I mean no one asked about the inappropriate crack about the former Mayor's weight. What could be so important that he had to break in to the Mayor's office to be sworn in during the Christmas break? He ran Onowar's campaign for Mayor, did he not realize at that point there was something wrong? Why was he so vicious with people during his journalism days? The guy was charming, but so many totalitarian dictators in our past were as well.

The New Grapevine will be out within a few days..
