Bashing the media began shortly after the first presses rolled. A tradition that will never die.

RE: Local Media nearly totally irrelevant
Hipsters are people that try too hard to be different (and genuinely do think that they're being different), by rejecting anything they deem to be too popular.

Ironically, so many other people also try too hard to be different that they all wind up being the exact same, so hipsters aren't actually different at all, they're just people that are snobbier and more annoying about their taste in "alternative" things, which are all popular now thanks to the other hipsters.

Hipsters pride themselves on liking things that no one else likes, and normally only really like them because they think no one else likes them and that they're being unique. This is being delusional because all the other hipsters also like the same things.

If I wanted to listen to somebody tell me how smart they are and how stupid I am, I would put my wife on speakerphone for the drive home.

Excellent.

Parrish is also definitely not hipster.

Agreed, but he thinks he is/tries to be, imo.

Yeah, I goaded him about that on Facebook about 2 years ago. I told him I knew what he was doing, trying to be all hip and shet so he could have some street cred with all those he wants to have access for interviews and such. Wearin' his little skull cap... speaking his pathetic little wantabe fake Brooklyn accent.... HEY DUDE.... You're FROM MISSISSIPPI... SHUT UP.

He was pretty reactionary about it. Got pretty pissed. I could tell I touched a nerve...

Calkins tries to either be super cool with the hipster GP, or just totally agitating people online with liberal silliness.

GP has solidified himself as being the worst. Just the worst.

Giannnotto seems to only be interested in doing some big "gotcha" piece to make a name for himself and move on to covering sports in a bigger market.

Evan Barnes (the Memphis football reporter for the CA, in case you don't (probably don't) know) is busy talking about music or standing firm on the attendance "numbers" reported to Tiger games.

Jason & John - I don't know, maybe it I was still 12 I could stomach more than 5 minutes of their show. Maybe.

Verno - lost me with his "Free Piano Man" shtick - I guess if I really, really, really loved the Griz I might listen.

And I'm sure whoever is on Sports56 has a great game of 10 Questions going on right about now - I don't know this, but I know it's true.

At any rate, I have stopped listening to the radio entirely, and dropped my subscriptions to local papers this year and won't go back with the current bunch of hacks. It's really just too bad.

Guess it's been this way for a while now - thinking of Cal & the miserable's, Tommy's rant, all the cheap shots to Rip. Now they're going after Penny, and didn't let Silverfield make it past 1-0 before this bus garbage.

Good riddance local media.

I've found in my professional experience (with mostly engineers), that most really smart people don't feel the need to prove to or tell other people how smart they are. I have found most people who try to tell you how smart they are to be incompetent.

Barnes is a race-hustling SJW hack.

I like GP's show if he leaves politics out of it. But he doesn't have the self control to or willingness to do that. Used to listen to him everyday, stopped, haven't listened in months.
