The Reporter: Middle Class Sex, Jewish Humor and Julia Goldberg.

Danny Cabeza de Calabazo use to be a pain in the ass Public Access TV producer. Now he’s a blogger.
A bunch straight press and alternative press people don’t like him and the sell-out media likes Danny even less. The local government really doesn’t like him.

The thing about Danny’s thing is that it has nothing to do with money.

Terrell and Goldberg get paid to do what leads to their blog. Terrell writes for pay about music and politics. He has a radio show on “Community” radio. Julia Goldberg, editor of the Reporter, a for profit newspaper, also does a Public Access TV show with Eric Zipf. Eric is on City Government payroll and both “community” radio and TV station are located at and because of the good graces of the Community College (with certain RULES of course).

I wouldn’t give a crap what Julia Goldberg had to say if she wasn’t funny sometimes.

Sometimes it helps to read other people’s blog even if they’re frustrated over hill hip-hop political sell-outs. But being Jewish Julia is funny about almost anything except being Jewish. For me, sometimes being funny about what you are is possibly anyone’s only saving grace.
This is what Julia had to say about her TV show and City employee Zipf:

“I don't think I sounded half, even a quarter, as smart during our morning taping of 7 Days in Santa Fe, the public access TV show I cohost with Eric Zipf, the funniest man in public access show biz. Well, you can catch it today, Sunday and Monday at 5:30 pm, Ch. 16 if you are so inclined.”

I worry about the inherent conflicts of interest. I want convergence of media but not by for profit news gatherers and government.
