well Asher just responded to your "suggestion" or question of conflict as to the Canal Street property on his show. he did not mention you or you blog by name, but finished by a resounbding "690 is not for sale!" or something similar.
THEN he had Sheriff Noodles normand on and proceeded to give what was a softball, snowball, kittens in mittens interview that might as well have been a pr promo piece.
In fact every time someone from JP government (Young for instance) comes on they get a super-easy walk in the park interview that very much sounds like a free promo or commercial even rather than ask about any of the tough corruption or conflict of interest issues that arise in JP.
In fact Council Chairman Chris Roberts was given 3 HOURS AS HOST and featured as one of his guests (and this is fact as previously reported in the TP) a convicted drug runner. This was when Roberts was running or getting ready to run as Council Chairman (At Large election).
It's almost hilarious how the irony of featuring his diatribe about your daring to question his integrity juxtaposed with the Robinette situation (WHICH ORIGINATED IN JP) followed by his cake-walk interview with Noodles the chief law enforcement officer for that very parish (who has had payroll fraud and allegations of bribery sashay (sp?) by with nary a peep from his office).
I dared to ask the question? I "dare" (man, I'm livin' on the edge) ask the question because he stumped the 1031 Canal Street development relentlessly for two weeks straight.
So he answered with a self-righteous "NO!" Bully on you, Eric. I hope he's not because I like his show the best of any talk show in NOLA. Now that we have his word I hope he can find something else to talk about considering we have a shitload of problems in this city which make that issue pale in comparison.
DOJ Consent Decree on NOPD
NOPD in general...is Serpas even in control?
Louisiana Revised Statute 33:2740.3 ...what does this taxing district mean to the city and how is the money being spent?
The proposed "Sports District" which is now being floated by MML. What is it? Where is the money coming from to do it? Who does it benefit and is it a good move for the city?
I have 20 more I could rattle out of my head but I don't want to do Asher's programming director's job. Maybe that's the issue....they need a new programming director. I don't know, I just know 1031 Canal does not deserve two straight weeks of air time.
