Even with baseball, WPHT is getting killed. We'd be better off playing ranchero music. Leigh Jacobs is killing us both in the ratings, and with the pictures of his enormous manhood that are circulating on the internet.

WPHT, home of the shameless shill who can misstate and contort more facts than conman at a grifter convention.
Today they took several backdoor attempts to soft pedal school choice and vouchers. But they misstated facts, were unpassionate and PHONY. They were so obvious they shamed used car salesmen.
They used this couple from Philadelphia who had their kid in a suburban school one of whom is Hispanic as a prop or human shield. With the fake righteous indignation they cried how dare they prosecute this couple. But they did things like lie and/or fraudulently filled out government documents for services among other things. This is was also backdoor cup shake for Hispanic votes.
Boundary hopping prosecutions have been going on for years. All of the sudden they are covering boundary hopping?
Long story short-WPHT-home of the shameless shill.

DICK Morris went so far as to say the suburbs only pay a 3% sales tax and since Philly has a 8% sales tax they should have access to more but he didn't say that PA has a 6% sales tax and the higher tax in Philly goes to Philly, not the rest of the state. He didn't even have his money spent per pupil correct. Then mr Dick in his sorry attempt to shill school choice and vouchers kept on saying Philly pays more in school taxes but he did NOT clarify in total dollars, percent, proportion etc. He finally decided on the fly to use the money spent per student number. He was factually unprepared to do that show. UNPROFESSIONAL to say the least.
Then he said the districts should just reimburse each other if a student goes to another district. That would give Philly a negative cash flow or exorbitant reimbursement rate. I don't even want to get into the logistics and staffing requirements of a rush of students to the burbs. There is a reason there are laws against district hopping. I think it was the Upper Darby School District that caught 300 people one year. 300 unexpected/unplanned for students show up and does what to the system?
But trying to portray people who fraudulently filled out government documents as victims was the disgusting thing. So what if they are arrested. They don't have to be prosecuted or sentenced the maximum. If I'm not mistaken these were the only caught district hoppers that didn't take a deal early in the process.
Then to hear Zeoli come on after DICK and try the same backdoor approach/soft sell of vouchers and school choice was just as repulsive. The soft sell was more obvious than a used car salesman at a grifter's convention.
Are these the orders/memoes WPHT conveyed from the Republicon party chiefs . This just by coincidence seems to coincide with the Republicons pandering to the immigrant community with in state discounted tuition and so called immigration reform 'proposals'.
Pathetic, Absolutely PATHETIC.
