I AM NOT A REPORTER.
Nor a journalist. Never said so.
I blog. I host a talk-show on radio. I'm a commentator. Plain and simple.
I try to get it right but I make mistakes like everyone else.
I don't compare myself to CNN which is a BILLION dollar news enterprise with world bureaus whose air talent makes millions of dollars, at least a good portion of them.
I'm not John King.
I'm not the NY Times, SF Chronicle, World News Daily.
I'm not the AP or CNN.
I call things as I see them.
I invite and encourage constructive, critical comments that are on topic and not anonymous. If you seek to make attacks, you can come on my radio show. If you do so on the blog, ID yourself or use a real name or even fake name.
I don't like FAKERS.
Yes, I have an ego. You do too even if mine is BIGGER but I acknowledge it and am absolutely HONEST about it and don't apologize for admitting such.
I'm real and genuine for better or worse. If you like me, great. If you don't like me, fine too. I never forced you to read me nor listen to me on the radio.
I never REPORTED that "dark-skinned" guys were seen at the Boston Marathon moments before the blasts.
If I'm being ripped because I ripped CNN and the AP over their inaccuracy then I think you should not listen or read me because, perhaps, maybe I'm just not for you.
I'm not for everyone here or on the radio. That's why there's an ice-cream company that has 31 different flavors. I don't like strawberry ice cream.
NOBODY forced YOU, all of YOU, to come into my place. YOU came here. You don't like? Then leave and hurry up and don't lecture me. You want to lecture me, I'm not interested. It's MY blog and MY radio show and MY METHOD(S) will lead the way until I'm done or the boss says I'm done.
FUNNY: But why do YOU ALL come here? If it's that toxic and that much of a "train wreck", then you're WORSE off than me for having a fetish reading and listening to my "train wreck."
I'm 100% certain and confident that many people LIKE my style and content and my show and all because they know it's genuine and non- phony and even if it detoured like ALL OTHER SHOWS do, then you'd still come back and listen anyway.
I NEVER walked the red carpet and don't want to. Ever.
I will NEVER apologize for being REAL, HUMAN, funny, bizarre, quirky and scared and vulnerable and hurt.
Frankly, I don't really GIVE A DAMN what you think of me. QUOTE ME.
I don't NEED this. I like doing this but I'm not going to lose IT based on THIS because THIS is a crazy business in a CRAZY, disjointed world run and loosely led by a few morons and other MORONS, like me, YOU, I'm just OK admitting it.
I don't have to SCREAM and YELL and be something COMPLETELY other than WHAT I AM and WHO I am. In other words, I'm NOT going to change because YOU lectured me.
DO NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT ME SINCE YOU HAVE PAID ZERO DOLLARS TO COME INTO MY PLACE. If you made a donation to this site, and I have disappointed you then maybe I'll give a buck or two to the Humane Society.
I realized many moons ago that there are OTHER THINGS AND PEOPLE far MORE IMPORTANT in LIFE than getting orgasmic or angry about what some blogger in SF or radio guy said. Again, nobody told you to listen or read me.
You want "more accurate" and "journalistic", go somewhere else or watch CSPAN3.
You want narcissistic, EGO-driven assholes that are full of genuine NON-GENUINENESS, then listen to the mattress guy and his loyal sycophants. Bow before the corporate cons who hire UN-FUNNY morning show buffoons who couldn't show an ounce of human purity if their life depended on it.
I care about my MOM'S HEALTH and WELFARE. THAT'S what I CARE ABOUT. Anything else is complete and UTTER BS to me. QUOTE ME. PRIORITIES: ever heard of that? If not, GET LOST.
YOU do NOT OWN ME. ALL of 'yous. YOU WILL NEVER OWN ME. NEVER.
Remember this: I have lived a full life and made many, many mistakes and in fact, I have lived up to them, mostly from a personal perspective. And occasionally, I'll draw from those experiences. I don't have to but sometimes it's useful.
I try hard. For some of you, that's not good enough. Then maybe you need to make a decision to go to another movie. I'm not Oscar either.
That's about it for now. I'm tired and it's getting late. I'm hungry.
