Broken Records Get Thrown Away

Mayor Rocky Anderson is featured on Friday's Inside Utah. All he does is trot out the same old complaints about the way "the media" has mistreated "his administration". Snore. "I love having my picture taken!"

I was amused by the Rockster's interview: it sounded pretty much like a rant against the problems of mainstream media (which gets attacked from both sides these days), but he named names--something that seems to rarely happen. You don't, for example, really have politicians saying a particular person in the media has harmed them--but more a a general smear campaign against the media from whatever political perspective the smearer is touting. For example, the Reagan machine was an instigator in the campaign to push the "liberal media" idea, but never named specific people as the cause of it (and therefore one might question if the idea of the "liberal media" is just a rhetorical trick to (ala an ad homonim attack) in order ot get people onto one's side.

At least the mayor is naming names of the reporter he thinks is the problem, but he just came across in the interview as whiney rather than on the offensive as he seems to think. He was still not specific in stating what ax the D-News guy might have to grind against the sharpening Rock(y)--if it is political or personal or what. He hints that it is religios (a la the Taliban reference) but then seems to obfuscate by making it just a personal thing that (is it) Diggler just dislikes him personally.
