WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 2018

NEARLY TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS AGO TODAY…

image004Edition #48 (published on April 30, 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 then NewsChannel5 Anchorman Jerry Springer donning a phony beard and dirty clothes from L.L. Bean to pose as a homeless pervert on the mean streets of Cincinnati.  The Top Ten List was the top ten things Marvin Warner should do on his first day in prison, and there was a story about how Channel 9 fiddled around for so long on a scoop they had that the story would up in the Enquirer.

 Page Two with a Real Editorial by Publisher Charles Foster Kane about Judge Ruehlman’s Rhetoric when he sentenced Marvin Warner to prison, Real Facts told about an amicus brief attorney John Lloyd filed on behalf of former Hamilton County Auditor Joe DeCourcy, along with some embarrassing items about Steve Chabot and Bill Seitz.image007
Page Three featured Cheap Shots against Vice President Dan Quayle, Cincinnati Police Chief Larry Whalen, the new Cincinnati Bar Association President Delores Learmonth, and Boomer Esiason.   There was a promo for Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane’s appearance on a radio program, and, as always, Another Real Guest Editorial by Bunky Tadwell (this one about condoms at Miami University).image009

 Page Four was for our regular weekly Real Letters From Real Readers column, Another Exclusive Whistleblower Report told about clearing the air at Cincinnati City Hall.image011

 Page Five featured a report on how the Kentucky Post was still a libelous rag in Ken Camboo’s Bluegrass Holler column, then Northern Kentucky Bureau Chief J.R. Hatfield told us about the continuing saga of the Kentucky Gubernatorial Primary and the candidates who made it necessary, and  a story about how Covington Business Council executive director Patrick Ewing (th bureaucrat not the basketball player) had cornered the market on downtown parking.image011 And Page Six included Crisis in the Classroom, and in Real Gossip by Linda Libel, we saw a local radio personality with his Nancy Reagan Inflatable Doll.
