in The Bay and the 'Burg by

If Scott Wagman could just keep his ego in check (!) and look beyond Facebook and Twitter, he’d be a half-way decent candidate (how does Senate District 16 look to you, Scott?).

Creative Loafing’s slurping of Scott Wagman — and its downward spiral in general

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

Last week, Political Whore Wayne Garcia and I got into a minor scrape over my accusation of a bias by Creative Loafing for St. Petesburg mayoral candidate Scott Wagman, whose political consultant is the domestic partner of CL editor David Warner. My accusation began as just a gentle nudge; I left this comment at the end of a story about Wagman receiving Sierra Club’s endorsement: “Lots of stories about Wagman from the paper edited by his consultant’s partner.” Garcia unloaded…
