Pam Bondi cheers on “Lock her up” chant to Hillary Clinton in RNC speech

in 2017 by

Coming out to the stage by declaring her love for her native state, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi addressed the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night, where she said that a Donald Trump presidency would return the country to the rule of law that has been absent under the past eight years of the Barack Obama administration. “November 8 is a day of reckoning for all those who have abused their power,” she began, referring to Election Day. “It’s the day when we the people will…

Emily Austen’s apology doesn’t quite cover her transgressions

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The plan for the Tampa Bay Rays evidently is for former sideline reporter Emily Austen to go away quietly. Of course, if that had been the plan all along, Austen might still be employed. Austin was fired last week after making several thick-headed statements while appearing on Barstool Sports disparaging Jews, Asians and Hispanics. She was immediately removed from the broadcast team, which hasn’t had much to say about her absense. This week, Austen reponded with a tweet: “I made…

Mitch Perry Report for 5.3.16 – Only six more months of hearing about Hillary vs.The Donald – every day

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Well today’s the Indiana primary, and aren’t you all excited about that? I didn’t think so. A CNN/ORC poll released  yesterday shows that more than eight of ten Americans believe Hillary Clinton will challenge Donald Trump for president in November. That was taken before Indiana votes today, or Nebraska next week, or California and New Jersey next month. But it’s still more fun to talk about a contested convention than start talking everyday about a Hillary vs. Donald confrontation, since that’s still…

Mitch Perry Report for 11.12.15 — Does the DNC want anyone to watch their debates?

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Overnight returns give Fox Business Network’s prime-time GOP presidential debate showing a 8.9 rating among households and 13.5 million viewers in prime-time. That’s just shy of the 9.5 rating and 14 million viewers earned by CNBC’s recent coverage for the third. And while it’s not nearly as large as the gaudy ratings numbers that Fox and CNN reaped this summer (24 million and 23 million. respectively), it should be noted that the Fox Business Network is in a lot less…

Think you’ve seen everything at U.S. Open? Think again

in Top Headlines by

Not a day has gone by at this U.S. Open without seeing something new on the young course at Chambers Bay. A practice range that should have felt like a ghost town late Wednesday afternoon suddenly came to life when Tiger Woods arrived just as everyone was starting to leave. The grandstands were packed and photographers and TV crews crowded about. It was rare to see Woods at the course so late. Then again, he doesn’t tee off Thursday until…
