NEARLY TWENTY-EIGHT YEARS AGO TODAY…
Edition #43 (published on March 26, 1991) of the original printed edition of The Whistleblower (not the Newswire) was delivered to Persons of Consequence all over town. That Week’s “Really Big Story” was all about the introduction of “Show and Television” at NewsChannel 5. The Top Ten List was the top ten ways to ensure your access to the WLWT Promos-Cam, and a story about the planned protest at City Hall about the lack of Police Brutality in Cincinnati.
There was a Real Editorial by Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane (before he became “Beloved”) about Opening Day in Cincinnati, and more “Real Facts” that included the investigative reports about Tom Mooney and Bill Seitz, and two new cards from Jerry Springer’s “Women I’d Like To Boink” Series. And we took “Cheap Shots” at Jose Rijo, Joe Deters, Roxanne Qualls, and Henry Dorfman; and we learned that Ours Is A Culture of Violence in “Another Real Guest Editorial by Bunky Tadwell.”
We Also Featured “Real Letters From Real Readers,” and “Another Exclusive Whistleblower Report” about why Greater Cincinnati is an oxymoronic delight.
Page Five Featured Bluegrass Holler by Ken CamBoo, a Column by Northern Kentucky Bureau Chief J.R. Hatfield explaining membership problems at Bill Butler’s new Metropolitan Club, along with news about the upcoming Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park.
And on Page Six, The Muckraker turned over rocks about Mickey Esposito, April Glaspie, and Stan Solomon, while in Real Gossip, Linda Libel had something to say about a lot of people, including Marge Schott, Clyde Gray, and Pat Barry.
