Trump’s 866th Day In Office
NEARLY TWENTY-EIGHT YEARS AGO TODAY…
Edition #54 (published on June 11, 1991) of the original printed edition of The Whistleblower (not the Newswire) was delivered to Persons of Consequence all over town. The Whistleblower was still banned at the Hamilton County Courthouse, and the Really Big Story was about the latest cover-ups of county government scandals. The Top Ten List was the top ten reasons the Hamilton County Commissioners had banned The Whistleblower, and an item showing how our local Crooks in Congress had voted on that DemocRAT sponsored Civil Rights Quota Bill.
Page Two with Real Editorials by Publisher Charles Foster Kane about how just when you think you’ve seen it all, somebody does something stupider than you would’ve ever thought possible. Real Facts reported how the Greater Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce ranked the members of Cincinnati City Council on voting for Chamber-supported issues. Personal Interests provided advice to the lovelorn for women who might wish to be introduced to Cincinnati City Manager Gerald Newfarmer, along with John Mirlisena’s testimonial for Beano.
Page Three featured Cheap Shots at Hamilton County Treasurer Robert A. Goering, reminding everybody when their Second Half Property Taxes would be due; Kentucky State Senator Joe Meyer’s Racial Harmony efforts; and Crocodile Tears for Politicians; an ad promoting Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane’s visit to a local radio program; along with another Real Guest Editorial by Bunky Tadwell (this one about the so-called Equal Rights Amendment).
Page Four was for our regular weekly Real Letters From Real Readers column, Another Exclusive Whistleblower Report told about teenage sexual awareness programs in the Tri-State, and Sports of All Sorts told how NBC TV had refused to allow local news coverage of the 1991 Gymnastics Championships at the Shoemaker Center.
Page Five featured Ken Camboo’s Bluegrass Holler reporting on Kenton County Prosecutor John Elfers conflict of interest in prosecuting slumlords, Ohio Congressman Landslide Charlie Luken’s no show at the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce luncheon, the Campbell County Airport Board, if there ever was such a thing. Northern Kentucky Bureau Chief J.R. Hatfield told us those “Fighting Words” after Cincinnati Post Reporter Sharon Moloney referred to Northern Kentucky as “Hicksvile” and some police brutality charges in Ft. Wright.
And Page Six included Hotline Hang-ups (some of the anonymous calls received on the Whistleblower Hotline, and in Real Gossip by Linda Libel, we heard the latest about folks like Jerry Springer, Pat Barry, Jeff Ruby, and folks on the Greater Cincinnati Film Commission.
It’s really hard to believe how good The Whistleblower was in those days.
