  • Who is the Post Dispatch? who is KMOX?

    I know they have many employees who make up the operations. KMOX used to be Bob Hyland---the PD used to be a Pulitzer.

    Most dominant personalities at the PD to me are Eric Mink and Bill McClellan.

    KMOX is adrift and undefined.

    kjoe has anyone ever told you you have an unhealthy obsession with newspapers/columnists/anchors/talk shows/personalities?
    You're being fucking dramatic. You own a TV and an air mattress. That's not exactly what I'd call "a lot to lose."

      Eric Mink is a guy that's a blowhole and out of his element; McClellan, Miklasz, and to a lesser extent, Thomas and Hummel, are the personalities that define the PD....

                    Very low on my list of problems and/or deficiencies. It seems to bother you more than me---sorry if that is the case.

                      The P-D is the BIGGEST embarrassment that St Louis has (incidently, Eric Mink left the P-D some years ago and is syndicated now elsewhere ..... maybe N.Y.). McClellan is a prime example of the pathetic and provincial downfall of the paper so I'm glad you mentioned him. He's not a journalist. He's not a writer. He just types for this piece of shite that hires him here because there's a lot of folks like me who have no other choice of daily home-town newspaper...because the P-D is the ONLY one. If I could just order the sports-sheet, I'd do it in a mili-second.

                      Since the last 2 generations of the Pulitzer paper took it over (before they sold it) it went down the toilet. It should be thrown on our driveways for free. It's that bad.

                      KMOX on the other hand has a lot of potential. Once they come to terms with their recent predicament of losing the Cardinals, maybe they'll come back to their senses and also lose the fat ogre who's on during lunchtime and think about letting some of their own talent (of which there is much) recover the legend that they've lost.

                        PD........pinko commie rag

                        Kevin Horrigan is the only thing I can stand there. I can't take much of him though.

                        KMOX is in the dumper. Who defines them? Carney, the only boring fat drunk bastard in entertainment. Charlie Brennan does a decent job. Paul Harris is unlistenable. What numbnut gave him a job, he belongs on WGNU. The sports guys all sound the same except for Bernie and i am tired of him. I do like ask the lawyer, whats his name.

                          I have always liked Eric Mink---it is consistent with what Nasty nate said. When Mink was media critic, local media did not get the free ride above criticism they receive nowadays. Mink is most definitely with the PD---he writes a column and chooses which nationally syndicated columnists appear in the Post.

                          The two biggest news sources in St. Louis have a lot of the same characteristics---absentee corporate ownership, lack of forceful personalities, lack of focus and direction. Maybe it is that way in most markets.

                            Bernie for PD, Shannon for the not so mighty KMOX.

                              Mink needs to stick to TV, anything else and the asshole over-steps his bounds and comes across as an idiot...
