WEDNSDAY, AUGUST 19
TRUMP’S 1307th DAY IN OFFICE
AND SUDDENLY, THE BLOWER’S MAILBOX WAS MISSING
NEARLY TWENTY-NINE YEARS AGO TODAY…
Edition #64 (published on August 20, 1991) of the original printed edition of The Whistleblower (not the Newswire) was delivered to Persons of Consequence all over town. It was our “Sure cure for uncontrollable, hysterical laughter” Issue, and our Really Big Story was all about our tribute to a Greater Cincinnatian. Our Top Ten List listed the top ten things P&G President Ed Artst found out when he checked his employees’ long-distance telephone records. Plus there was a story about the timing of Judge Thomas Crush’s verdict announcement in the Mickey Esposito case.
Page Two with Real Editorials by Publisher Charles Foster Kane about a Nick Vehr’s term limits proposal for Cincinnati City Council. Real Facts told all about WLW Radio’s new three-year contract to broadcast the Cincinnati Reds games. And Schottzie was slammed in the Whistleblower’s weekly limerick contest. Page Three featured Cheap Shots at Brewster Rhoads, Pete Strauss, and Stanley Aronoff. There was a promo for Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane’s appearance on a 55 WKRC Radio program, as well as also another Real Guest Editorial by Bunky Tadwell (this one was about some of the goings-on at P&G).
Page Four was for our regular weekly Real Letters From Real Readers column, and Another Exclusive Whistleblower Report featured the censorship in Butler County.
Page Five featured Ken Camboo’s Bluegrass Holler reporting about state representative Lawson Walker’s being charged for misdemeanor battery in Orlando, Ex-convict Lou Torok’s being arrested on a morals charge, and Vice President Dan Quayle’s raising a lot of money for Larry Hopkins. Northern Kentucky Bureau Chief J.R. Hatfield told us all about Alexandria Police Chief Ed Stein’s filing attempted murder charges against a man with AIDS who had spit on him. 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 “Hunk of the Month,” 55 WKRC Helicopter Traffic Reporter Bobby Leach; Jim Tarbell; Michael Comisar; WCPO’s Carol Williams, the Channel 9 “I-Team,” Joel Hyatt, Howard Metzenbaum, David Mann, Dusty Rhodes, Tom Luken, Richard Buchanan, and Pee Wee Herman. There were also more bogus classified ads.
It’s really hard to believe how good The Whistleblower was in those days. You can download that entire edition HERE.
