Rob Christensen: Still making a mess after ALL THESE YEARS.

His employer’s stock is hovering around “junk” territory.   (A lot of folks have been laid off in McClatchy newsrooms.  But ROB is STILL THERE.)  Rob has something in common with Unvision’s Jorge Ramos.  He, like Jorge, has been tossed out of a media event…

Ol’ Rob: Missing the action or just plain Mis-leading ????

Rob Christensen has been hanging out in Raleigh watching the political action for a loooooooong time.  (Sources tell me he once had to flee town just minutes before General Sherman’s troops rolled in.)  Rob has been forcibly removed from an NCGOP convention. . He missed…

‘The hard toll of easy guns’

*SIGH*. That’s the headline of the N&O op-ed that is being echoed and cheered by Blinkin’ Chris and his comrades at Goodmon, Inc. Rush Limbaugh used to have an “SUV update” parody segment, where he made fun of various drive-by reports that blamed actual automobiles…
