Since everyone else is creating a blog....

...why not the media? The truth is this is just another tool to try and get the conversation going between our viewers and us, "Cenla Media."

I have noticed the blogs get hot when talking about politics. It is, after all, the Louisiana passion. But why do we complain so bitterly when we get what we vote for?

The truth is only some of us get what we vote for and the rest feel left out and just plain angry about who was placed in power. With the Governors race in full gear, I ask what do you want in your Governor and what questions would you ask the candidates if you could interview them yourselves?

I really don't need a saviour - just a governor that will see to the administrative duties of the office - like obeying and enforcing the law. Make the State Police earn their keep.

OK start this off by giving us the inside scoop on something. In local media, print, audio or video, explain to us what influence and control editors exert over what is printed or not? Thanks.

Michele,
You should spend more time worrying about what your reporters are saying and how your anchors read the news than about the blogs out there.

The same holds true for The Clown Talk. It is a Gannett rag that has maybe one or two stories worth reading a day.

I have posted a response on the front page, but I must admit to you here I have never worked for The Town Talk and do not know how the print media chooses the stories they cover. Maybe someone can tell us here?
Editors, I'm sure have influence, but I think it takes alot of time in a day filled with work to stop and try to slant the coverage.
If you are an employer you know how hard it is to get anyone to do what you say..let alone write a story a certain way. Heck a spell check might be all the time we can muster.

If you are indeed Michele, please listen to your weekend news anchor. Thanks to her, I watch KLAX news on the weekends. How can you afford to have someone that repels your loyal watchers?

This is not a place to insult people who work on the air. Thanks to Renee many people watch KALB. Feel free to change the channel that is the true American spirit...free will.

Of course we can change channels. Is that what you want?

No that is not what we want.

Let's move the discussion to how the media handles stories or avoids stories, not personalities. That's what is important here. And I think that is what the moderator is trying to accomplish.

And by the way, KALB is one of the few media sites in this part of the world that knows how to use a video blog. Great integration of tools IMHO.
