The Noise Machine (09/27/10)

It's too damn pretty to be inside reading this......


The Bill White Texas Tribune covers the Mostyn/TWIA story one week late and with the glaring omission of Texas Watchdog, the media outlet that broke the story and was subpoenaed themselves.


Southwest buys AirTran creating a "MiniMe" version of the big boys? The thing about Southwest is that you either love it or hate it. I prefer flying Continental but on the rare occasions they don't match Southwest's rates.....


While I'm not a fan of utilities deregulation, I'm even less a fan of what regulation their is being toothless. (Note: More bad (bad can mean both toothless and heavy-handed) is probably not the answer)


Activist FAIL. Here's a guy that should be up for Houston's Turkey of the Year. Instead, Houston's former Alt-weekly will probably just give the award to DeLay again or something.

And finally....


Blogger intimidated by HCRP Thugs!!!

Can we, at least, get an apology over here?

Oh yeah...the rally itself was underwhelming.

And so it goes.....

    It seems to me they really like the Big Trial Lawyer vs. Big Legal Reform meme.

    That's all well and good, but it certainly strikes me that the potential "collateral" damage to the press due to one rich special interest trying to intimidate journalists doing their thing ought to be of some interest to Texas Tribune, given their similar status as a nonprofit journalism startup (albeit a startup with a lot of cash in the bank).

    Kronberg picked up on it, and that's generally a pretty good indicator that some topic of Texas politics is newsworthy.
