YOU CAME HERE LOOKING FOR HONESTY AND I'M GOING TO GIVE IT TO ...SORT OF LIKE FRIDAY
*I said Jon Miller was overrated. In the PC Bay Area that's tantamount to committing treason.
Miller is good at the basics but now thinks he's the star of the show and has been telling boring stories for years now.
And his "Adios Pelota" call after an Hispanic ballplayer hits a home run has become tiresome and insulting.
I'm not saying it to cause a stir --I'm saying it because I'm right.
*It's not just that Ben Fong Torres writes press releases these days, it's that he writes them continually --God forbid Ben write anything investigating the travesty of the Cumulus mob --no way, sir.
*Of course the Chronicle is in the pocket of just about everything and everyone --ever seen anything even remotely controversial about, say, Larry Baer?
*Better yet, Larry Baer and Jack Davis the political consultant. You want to know how the Giants got their ballpark approved? And how the Warriors managed to get their arena done with the Giants going along? Uh, you just got a major nugget and you won't see it in the Chronicle.
*Ken Korach is the best PBP man in the Bay Area, one of the best in the majors. Jon Miller would tell you that.
*Ted Robinson and Greg Papa are a 1 and 1A in terms of football pbp performance.
*By the way, Papa has been dealing with a family issue hence his absence on CSNBA Warriors' coverage.
*Another Larry Baer intern: Lee Hammer.
*Remember, Michael Savage was ultra critical of Donald Trump just after the election --and Trump and his people knew it--if you schmuckos who rip me for my pro-Savage pieces only knew so. By the way, I didn't vote for Trump either and it bothers me too that Savage is a Trump advocate but he isn't a kiss ass like some others in the media...and that yutz on the KSFO Morning Show.
*Dear Ethan Bearman: Nothing personal but boy oh boy...
*KGO Radio: The home of radio hosts who talk about where you lost your virginity while the country went to hell.
*KSFO: the morning co-hostess didn't know who Congressman John Lewis was.."woooow."
*If only the Chronicle would chronicle the relationship of Willie Brown, Dianne Feinstein, Dick Blum (Feinstein's hubby) and the Central Subway construction ...But Audrey Cooper is too busy studying Hunter Pence's on-base percentage.
*Cooper would have most likely told Herb Caen to write something more "snappy" for the millennial crowd and Caen most likely would have thrown his "vitamin v" at her in response.
*By the way, these new Chronicle columnists are about as interesting as a smelly armpit.
*If only KCSM had the deep pockets of boring KQED.
*Michael Krasny's "Forum": the audio equivalent of watching paint dry.
*Dear Stan the commenter: you're once again approaching probation territory.
*The "KNBR Morning Show" fans: people who watch "Wheel of Fortune" instead of "Jeopardy."
*Michael Finney: Second highest-paid on-air talent at KGO (ABC7) --Slightly north of $400K a year.
*Larry Beil: check the ego time.
*Ama Daetz: The next contract: oh shit!
*Aaron Pero: Herb Dudnick would have kicked your ass.
*Dan Rosenheim: Wayne Walker would have kicked your ass.
*Tracey Watkowski-Silva: And Marcia Brandwynne would have kicked your ass too. (With Terrilyn Joe participating)
