Kyle threatened with “the boot”

We’re not really sure if Jefferson County Commission president Bettye Fine Collins would have really kicked out Birmingham Weekly columnist Kyle Whitmire at the end of today’s post meeting conference. All we’ll say is imagine what the post over on Mixed Media would have been if she had.

Kyle’s piece from earlier today includes video from last week and links to the comments made by Collins that he attempted to raise questions about.

Now hear this: Matthews vs. Murphy online

It’s currently one of the featured posts over on Birmingham Weekly’s Mixed Media blog – Kyle’s piece about Frank Matthews’ “exchange”with Matt Murphy on Murphy‘s February 8th broadcast resulting from John Archibald’s* blog post on February 7 about Larry Langford’s mayoral campaign’s media dealings. Now you can hear how it went down.

WAPI-AM has posted the audio from this exchange on-air; listen up and let us know what you think:


*Incidentally, I’ll finally get a chance to meet the Birmingham News columnist when he and I join Wade Kwon as panelists at today’s PRSA meeting beginning at 11:45 a.m.
