The Jim DeFede Show

[PHOENIX, WE HAVE A PROBLEM: The blog is down, so my morning post didn't come up: To read it punch on the comment below].

For you early risers, I'm gonna be on Jim DeFede's radio show on AM-940 this morning at 7:30 a.m. talking about the Marti Ten, et al. DeFede, who was himself fired from the Herald in a rushed and unfair fashion, has come down strongly against the firings, saying the Herald didn't give the trio of reporters due process. Though I agree that there are some serious questions left to be answered (which I'll be writing about today), I think the firings were generally just and necessary. Henry Gomez of Babalu and the Herald Watch blog is gonna be on with DeFede, too. My God, DeFede and Babalu joining forces? The earth may spin off its axis.

By the way, I still get kick out of this. It's like cyber-memorabilia.
