*My Circle7 spy at KGO tells me Reggie Aqui headed off to his wedding and honeymoon; he'll be off the rest of the week which means the drama people at 900 Front are royally pissed off.
Then again, the Bay Area is spared half of Donnie and Marie for a few days.
There is a God.
*By the way, in case you're curious, Aqui and Natasha Zouves are still not talking --the feud, I'm told, is pretty stark. Maybe she opened her eyes.
*While everyone is ragging on Colin Kaepernick for being unpatriotic (among other things) the KNBR Morning Mutts: Murph and Mac, in a span of five minutes, uttered the word, "bombs" (referring to homeruns) this morn after 9. Brian Murphy apparently isn't aware that as we talk America has men and women in uniform fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan --places where bombs can kill people faster than listening to a Larry Baer lecture.
*I've repeatedly said that KPIX has no "face of the station" and lacks a dominant anchor. I thought Ken Bastida had the best shot of holding that position but Bastida, as much as a nice guy he is, apparently is considered a "lightweight" --I didn't say it, people at PIX and local industry people said it.
*Speaking of PIX, let me again say that while I think Allen Martin is a pretty good news guy, Martin needs to stop taking himself so seriously --it comes across as smug, smarmy and arrogant. Martin should chug the brandy and begin a yoga regimen.
*Juliette Goodrich was in my dream last night anchoring the 5 and 11 PM PIX newscast with Bastida. But don't tell anybody.
*Goodrich makes sense for a variety of reasons; she's smart; she reads the teleprompter very well; she's a woman (demos); oh, and she's very attractive too which will piss off the "Rich Lieberman is a misogynist crowd."
*Yeah, which is why I'm voting for Hillary Clinton. Because anybody that can write 33,000 e-mails gets my vote.
*Hugh Hewitt: the singular "Armstrong and Getty."
*I want to know how and why Hewitt (heard on 860 AM, KTRB) gets so much face time on the networks. Seriously, the guy talks like he's got oatmeal in his mouth and is nothing more than a Donald Trump operative.
*Note to the Right-Wing echo machine on radio and TV: Forget the "national polls" indicating Trumpster is gaining ...I have a two-word reality check for you Trumpiestas: electoral votes.
Hillster has about 248 secure electoral votes; 270 votes gets you the White House. So an Ohio here, a Florida there, New Mexico, whatever...It's President Hillary Clinton unless she declares war on Canada.
*KTVU hierarchy asking certain news people if they're talking to me while the PIX alleged ND is quietly checking computers at the station to see if he can find a leaker ...yeah, the same people who swear on bibles that they pay no attention to my blog.
These are the people who get paid big bucks to hire unqualified, politically-correct, women of color to do the traffic in the morning.
*The Internet is free but I'm not.
I've made it a point not to install a pay wall here because I know some of you are having a hard time (like me) making ends meet. And I know you enjoy reading about 415 Media.
