#ncga: Whining about office space, ignoring scandal and other real news. Welcome to Driveby-LaLa-Land.

Apparently, the small band of driveby media types  that loiters in the legislative building is having to move to new office space.  And THAT has them upset.  Never mind all the corruption and malfeasance infesting our legislative branch. Office space is WHAT is important.  Take…

#ncpol: WRAL drive by defends,um … NC PolicyWatch ???

Travis Fain came on board not long ago to replace the late-great Mark “Binky” Binker as Miz Leslie’s “better half” on WRAL’s Jones Street on-air team.  Here he is making Miz Leslie proud: That’s right.  PolicyWatch’s “substantial reputation for journalism.”  I wonder WHAT journalism he…

WRAL’s war on the Raleigh Christmas parade heats up

Not only does WRAL want the government to take all your money and run your life for you, but they are also doing all they can to kill off a cherished Raleigh holiday pastime.  Here’s the latest from the Greater Raleigh Merchants Association, the longtime…

WRAL: The grinch that MIGHT kill Raleigh’s Christmas.

They’ve mastered butchery of the truth.  They’ve killed their own ratings by ditching CBS.  NOW they’re going after Christmas in our capital city:  At a press conference yesterday in City Plaza, Shop Local Raleigh and ABC 11 announced a new partnership for the 44th annual…

Mark Binker. (More expensive. Less access.) Just like ObamaCare.

WRAL’s Binky is making his move.  No longer will he be the on-air Grace to Miz Leslie’s Will.  Binky is moving on to edit something called The Insider. While WRAL News serves as the opening act for that night’s broadcast of ‘Inside Edition,’  The Insider…

Apologize when Laura Leslie DOES.

Our lazy, no-account, shiftless, irresponsible driveby media has apparently decided that their modus operandi — at least until Democrats OWN EVERYTHING — is to troll Republican social media accounts to find things that can be appropriately twisted to make the account-holder appear sufficiently BIGOTED.  …

#ncga: Our cute, cuddly FUBAR drivebys

You know those folks I am talking about.  They are the ones who have done a horrible job for years keeping the people of North Carolina informed about the happenings in the legislative building.  They are all so busy brown-nosing Democrat legislators for press secretary…

#ncpol: Laura Leslie — STILL employed ????

Yep, the same individual who was all over social media blaming Christians and Trump voters for the gay night club massacre in Orlando — the same person who ranted about the “crazy mf-ers with guns” — has been elevated to social media police-person at WRAL…

Apparently, The drivebys STILL don’t GET Google ads.

The crusade against ‘fake news” rages on.  Question:  WRAL’s Binky — Raleigh’s very own Ted Baxter — reported a few years back that the late senator Martin Nesbitt called former DHHS head Aldona Wos a “witch.”   (Quite a hubbub went on as a result of that story.)…

Greg Fishel knows ‘crap’

Leftists work hard to politicize EVERYTHING.  I get hit with their lectures during ANY ESPN broadcast.  The NFL is getting totally politicized this season with the whole kneeling nonsense.  Now, here comes WRAL’s Greg Fishel to lecture us troglodytes who went to frat parties, met…
