Trump’s 1258th Day In Office
NEARLY TWENTY-NINE YEARS AGO TODAY…
Edition #57 (published on July 2, 1991) of the original printed edition of The Whistleblower (not the Newswire) was delivered to Persons of Consequence all over town. It was our Petty and Vindictive Issue, and our Really Big Story was all about the latest cover-up at the Hamilton County Courthouse; Our Top Ten List listed the top ten patriotic ways to celebrate the Fourth of July this year. Plus there was a big story about why enrollments were soaring at UC, probably because of all that sex in the dorms that was going on at that time.
Page Two with Real Editorials by Publisher Charles Foster Kane about Business As Usual at the Hamilton County Courthouse after the grand jury said there would be no indictment for those four building inspectors shown playing golf on a Channel 9 “I-Team” report during ratings week. Real Facts reported about the proposed sales tax increase Steve Chabothead and the other commissioners were trying to push through. Cincinnati Post reporter David Wecker was the subject of the Whistleblower Weekly Limerick Contest, and in Bud Fugger’s Homosexual Hotline, we learned what happened after Mayor David Mann didn’t show up at the Gay Pride Day Rally.
Page Three featured Cheap Shots at bleach blonde anchorwomen Debra Silberstein and Toria Talley, along with Dwight Tillery and other candidates running for office at Cincinnati City Hall. There was a promo for Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane’s appearance on a 55 WKRC Radio program, and another Real Guest Editorial by Bunky Tadwell (this one was about how the government does everything possible to encourage the very things that were causing the problems they were supposedly trying to solve.)
Page Four was for our regular weekly Real Letters From Real Readers column, Another Exclusive Whistleblower Report included a Tom Luken Sleaze Card, along with the story about his taking over the Hamilton County DemocRAT Party. UC also had an enrollment ad, promoting its extremely popular unsupervised sex in the dorms policy.
Page Five featured Ken Camboo’s Bluegrass Holler reporting on Death Hill construction delays; police brutality in Ft. Wright; bank mergers; those award-winning negative ads Larry Forgy used in his losing campaign for Kentucky Governor; and how the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce was hogging all the credit for the Covington trolley. Northern Kentucky Bureau Chief J.R. Hatfield was promoting all those upcoming Fourth of July Parades. Plus, there was a story about Marty and Joe talking dirty during a Reds rain delay.
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 more about some of our so-called celebrities.
It’s really hard to believe how good The Whistleblower was in those days.
