Bill Keeler is back to his old ways of kissing up to the local politicians and giving them soft questions and allowing them to ramble on and say nothing. Christine Bellino seems ready to ask the tough question but Keller always jumps in to save his guests. Mayo Palmire was spreadig the bull crap pretty good in answerng Keelers softball questions when Bellino steps in and asks a tough question and Palmiere avoids answering and continued his throwing of the bull crap.

Why didn't Keeler ask Palmieri why he gave out promotions last year if the City made cuts?

Why didn't Keeler ask why the City employes still get Cadilliac healthcare.

Keeler is in the bag for the local politicians and is helping them spread the bull crap and trying to justify more tax increases.

Why doesn't Keeler ask the Mayor, the local politicians and the School board about the obscene cost of pensions and healthcae benefits. Why is a retired teacher or policeman or fireman sitting at home colleting 60k plus a year becase they worked for 20 years? Contracts is an excuse. Contracts can be broken, and who signed the contracts? The same failed politicans and schol board members.

Because that's the only way most of these "heroes" they hire into the Friends & Family plan would ever succeed because they're typical loser ooooticans who have to steal and bully their way through life.
Also you're right about all the news not being able to ask the tough questions but it's a symbiotic relationship between small news markets and politicians. Ask questions that are too tough, or have callers that beat the mayor up, and you won't be talking to anyone.
It's how the local leaders there have kept the OD and all the rest on their heels all those years.

You are exactly right except that Ms. Bellino seemed to want to ask the tough questions, Keeler allowd Palmieri to give a non answer and then moved on.

Ms. Bellino's question was if the budgets are being monitored why is each department or most of them already running in the red?

There is no reason to allow a local politican to go on a show and LIE and LIE some more.

its clear he hasnt been able to keep his radio jobs because he hasnt done the right questions that the people want and need for both sides the only way we will get good leaders is when they know what the tax payers want people need to send messages and emails and calls to him when he has leaders in the radio room for an interview if enough people call he will be forced to ask but he doesnt have a station like that

He's not a good enough interviewer to ask the right questions and he doesn't know enough about these subjects to ask. He's proven it year after year, station after station.

I think Bill is so afraid of getting fired again he won't ask the real questions. Plus he might be making commercials for these guys down the road with his other company so he is kissing asses. Bill I was one that wanted to see you come back but you are losing your edge anx please let C talk once in a while.

I think you hit the nail on the head. Bill does not want to offend anyone who might be hiring him in the future for advertisements or campaigns, that is also why Bill is protecting them from Bellino's questions.

The shame is not in asking the soft questions it is in allowing the politician to answer any question with lies and then not to challange those lies.

Keeler needs to bring up the outrageous pensions of City and School employees, he will not.

Keeler needs to bring up the Cadilliac health plans of City employees, he will not.

Keeler, needs to challange why services need to be cut when the real cuts should be salary and benefits. The direction of the City and Schools are going we will have one employee making 1 million a year and 20,000 retired people collecting pensions.

Contracts are made by politicians and can be broken by politicians.

The Mayor's excuse for a City car was pathetic.

What is the Mayor's excuse for giving out the promotions to UPD and UFD.

No matter how much I bitch about Keeler, we need him and his interviews to at least expose the lies of the local politicians. If we relied only on the OD and their pathetic reporting we would be in the dark on every issue. We would all be better off listening to Keeler in the morning for news and using the OD to line our bird cages.
