    Gary Hart Scandal Tipster Was Broward Woman, New Report Says

    In 1987, the Gary Hart scandal uncovered by the Miami Herald obliterated the Democratic frontrunner's run for the White House and changed the way politics is covered forever. For 27 years, it was widely believed that the tipster to Hart's infidelities with model Donna Rice came from a friend of the ... More >>

    The State of The Pulp Is ...

    In light of last night's State of the Union speech, during which George Bush boldly trumpeted his "No Soldier Left Behind" plan, I thought I'd say a few words about the State of the Pulp. I've heard it said from numerous people in recent days that this blog has slowed down, that it's not hitting as ... More >>

    Miami Herald: Best Paper In the Country?

    Laid up this morning with a cold from the bowels of mordor (yeah I'm a geek like that sometimes, and I didn't fail to see a little bit of the TNT hobbit-fest last weekend). Yesterday I was sneezing fistfuls of extremely watery snot all over the place. Last evening it moved stealthily from my sinus p ... More >>

    A Christmas Travesty

    The Palm Beach Post's front page today is dominated by a huge Ipod advertisement. No, wait ... it's supposed to be an article. Under the heading, "Christmas Gift Ideas," complete with a bow, was the giant headline "Accessorizing your Ipod." Then a story by reporter Stephen Pounds about all the n ... More >>

    More Reason For Tom To Go

    Here's a transcript from Tom Fiedler's interview on the Newshour with Jim Lehrer (via Romenesko) about the Miami Herald's doing nothing after receiving some of the damning Mark Foley e-mail exchanges with a teen Congressional page months ago. Here's a telling quote: "But, again, in the context i ... More >>

    Miami Herald Comes Clean A Little

    Okay, now I'm upset. Turns out the Miami Herald had those Mark Foley e-mails, too, and also showed great deference to the congressman by not bothering to do a story about it. But I'm not upset that the Herald didn't run the story -- I'm upset that we didn't get a copy of the damn things. But it ... More >>

    Okay, I've made the phone calls and done the research. Yes, I've reported the Miami Herald's hiring of public relations guru Bruce Rubin, who helped the newspaper form its "media strategy" after the Jim DeFede firing.

    The Herald ran another story on the homeless beating deaths this morning -- and, unlike yesterday, it named Anthony Clarke, the man who witnessed part of the beating, saw Norris Gaynor dying on the ground, and went home without so much as notifying authorities.
