Mark had a rough weekend. Opens with a short story of Joe Royals, convicted felony who got clemency and now can vote. Then we get Mark's Opines: High insurance rates hurt Florida. Incumbents had edge in WSRE debates - knew issues better due to more experience. Library open on Monday [...]
The first ever Best of Coast celebration was a big hit last night at Seville Quarter. Proceeds from the Silent Auction and the gate went to the Pensacola Little Theater. We had a sampling of the winners there for the public to enjoy. Food: Billy Bob's BBQ, Tre Fratelli, Atlas/Fish House, Eat!, [...]
Yesterday, PNJ columnist Mark O'Brien gave his views on Mark Foley (Foley case gets even slimier as partisans throw mud, call names). In the Oct. 12 issue of the IN, I do the same (Outtakes ). Mark focuses on what he sees as name-calling. Misstates the Studd incident in 1983. And the ties to [...]
Indiana University professor Julia Fox has determined that there is no significant difference in the average amounts of video and audio substance between broadcast network news storiesand 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Fox and two grad students actually studied it: "The Daily Show" as [...]

Here are the International covers for this week's Newsweek. Notice that the U.S cover is somewhat different. Once again mainstream media wimps out. If Newsweek has reports that we're losing in Afghanistan then let the American public read the articles. News is news.
Research 2000 recently conducted a survey testing whether progressive or conservative talk radio shows are more open to callers with dissenting points of view. None of the calls were made to WCOA's Luke McCoy and his "Pensacola Speaks" show - but I doubt it would have countered their [...]
IN Publisher Rick Outzen will be on Don Parker's "Pensacola Preview" radio show on WCOA 1370 AM at 5:30 pm today. Don't tell Luke McCoy.
