SURVEY: AMERICANS DON'T TRUST MEDIA BUT FEEL BETTER ABOUT FAVORITES The chasm widened between media and those in power + their supporters. Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin responded to derision from certain media outlets that are routinely ignored by the executive branch. Louisville's Courier-Journal and Lexington's Herald Leader are both named in Bevin's new Facebook video (below). Bevin says "a handful" of (what he considers) negative media people "are like cicadas...not serious journalists." He claims their out-of-state owners engage in tabloid journalism so he wants to communicate directly with constituents via social media, radio shows, and smaller newspapers. Bevin expects newspapers to tout "extraordinary business developments...but you wouldn't know it" by reading their news stories. The Herald Leader slammed my interview work

William Albert "Bill" Stokes died last week. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. Seven years ago, he taught me one of the most enlightening, compassionate lessons of my life at a moment when I was way out of my comfort zone. The day after he and I co-hosted a mostly improvisational show in front of an African American audience, I wrote this blog post. It was truly one of the greatest experiences of my life. ----------------- BACK IN BLACK I have always had an affinity for African American people. Their music always moved me more than the bland songs sung by white performers. Their distinctly different clothing choices made me want to be colorful like them instead of rigid and uniform
Rick Pitino played in his 55+ basketball league and lived to talk about it...live from a hot tub where he was nursing his wounds. (full transcript at bottom of page) After reflecting on his tournament play, Pitino talked about his next UofL team, his kids grabbing all of his Derby winnings, and why he was sleeping (or deeply praying) at Mass.
