NEARLY TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS AGO TODAY…
Edition #45 (published on April 9, 1991) of the original printed edition of The Whistleblower (not the Newswire) was delivered to Persons of Consequence all over town. The Really Big Story was about how the jail crisis could be the county commissioners’ downfall. The Top Ten List was the ways to ease overcrowding at the Hamilton County Jail, and there was a story about the new “No Beating Zones” Cincinnati City Clown-cilman Nick Vehr wanted placed throughout the city.
Page Two with a Real Editorial by Publisher Charles Foster Kane about why Cincinnati had been selected for the “America’s Funniest People” auditions, Real Facts told about more politics as usual at Cincinnati City Hall, and there was a story about the Failed Cincinnati Public Schools rejecting a pay increase for its teachers. Page Three featured Cheap Shots against General Norman Schwarzkopf, Ohio Governor George Voinovich, Enquirer critics Cliff Radel and Larry Nagar, and Monty Loeb, Jr., head of the Citizens for Community Values. And as always, we had Another Real Guest Editorial by Bunky Tadwell.
Page Four was for our regular weekly Real Letters From Real Readers column, Another Exclusive Whistleblower Report told why Dusty Rhodes was the new darling of the news media, and an Impotence advertisement for same sex couples.
Page Five featured a report on nude dancing in Ken Camboo’s Bluegrass Holler column, and then Northern Kentucky Bureau Chief J.R. Hatfield told us about Dr. Floyd Poore’s political problems, while Campbell County officials explained why wieners were not bad for the Licking.
And Page Six included Spoiled Sports by Andy Furburger, and advertisement for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Soup, and Real Gossip by Linda Libel.
It’s really hard to believe how good The Whistleblower was in those days.
