5 things I think about today’s St. Petersburg Times

I’m baaaccckkk.  Took  about 10 days off from this feature to enjoy July 4th, go whitewater rafting and ink a few new business deals.  But, oh, boy, does the paper of record in Florida need as much scrutiny as ever. See, this is the problem with PolitiFact, other than having Cristina Silva gimmick up the place, the decision to run a PolitiFact piece is arbitrary as a child’s letter to Santa.  Today, the paper is boldly running a story about how…

Of the many useless tits-on-a-bull there are at the St. Petersburg Times, few are less useful (or is it more useless?) than Neighborhood Times editor Sandra Gadsden, who I believe regularly cribs — without attribution — from local blogs and websites. Like many Times writers, Gadsden avoids criticism for this practice by simply “re-reporting” a story she originally read on a blog or website.  Here’s how it works, the reporter reads on a local website about a club or restaurant…

As I have said many times before, it is not always what’s reported that’s important, it’s also what’s not reported that really matters.

But it’s almost as if Greene is getting, if not a pass, a chance to truly compete against Kendrick Meek.…
