Howdy & KCSB Tonight

Hey BlogaBarbarians, sorry I haven't been around much -- busy, busy, busy. What an election eh? I have been here in spirit, and will be posting more now that the election is all wrapped up, and congrats to all the winners!

QUICK ITEM: Blake Beltram from KCSB will be hosting a discussion this evening on his non-partisan political broadcast Ceasefire (7 p.m. - 8 p.m.) on the perception of editorial bias from the SB News-Press in the recent election. You can tune in to 91.9 FM Radio or listen on the KCSB Webcast at -- and by the way, there may even be a featured phone interview from yours truly Cannon Presidio. The call in number for the show is 805.893.2424.

I'll do a post tomorrow with a follow-up! - CP

Nice to see their radio show has its own web site with audio files to download. Very funny to hear the call-in by "Bo" Berenson.

But the show hosts are totally naive to think NewsPress will publish that letter read on the show about fair and balance rebuttals to the editorials by Factswrong.

Blogbarbarba should have a special section where people whose substantive letters were not published by newspress can be published by Blogabarbara as an alternative venue. The point is to show what Factswrong is NOT choosing to include as balance in the newspress editorials and letters. A certain review period should be allowed, but after a week or two, if Newspress does not publish it, it is worth of "publishing" at the blog or elsewhere. As we know now, the printed page by newspaper subscription is a fading medium and venue for publishing.
