PIMPS AND WHORES
THE HYPOCRISY OF THE MIAMI HERALD WHEN IT COMES TO WHO THEY SELECTIVELY CHOOSE TO GO AFTER

Now, I’m no fan of the Governor, and I absolutely agree with the Miami Herald’s efforts to reveal information about his travel plans, but I’m also a believer in that what’s good for the goose is also good for the gander.


While the Miami Herald is all too happy to splash a story about the Governor’s efforts to shield his travel plans by using his private jet on the front page of their paper, the Miami Herald has all but refused to dig into and report on the trips that Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado has taken to South America and Europe, or even more importantly on the $23,000 junket that Commissioner Marc Sarnoff and his wife took to China, paid for by the Chinese government.


Just weeks ago I filed an ethics complaint against Regalado for failing to report on who paid for his, and his daughter’s trip to Argentina last July where the local papers, as well as a local blog reported at the time that he spent time hustling investors to invest in developer Tibor Hollo’s latest condo venture on Brickell Avenue.


Last year, after the Miami Herald falsely reported that Commissioner Sarnoff and his wife were traveling as guests of the Miami Heat when the Heat went to China to play some exhibition games, Sarnoff recanted that claim when he was questioned about the Probable Cause finding that the Miami-Dade Ethics Commission had made on my complaint that he had failed to report another junket that he and his wife had taken to Brazil, paid in part by the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, and acknowledged that the Heat had not paid for the trip.


In none of these instances, especially in the Sarnoff case where he had flagrantly lied to a Herald reporter, did the Miami Herald editors show the least bit of interest in finding out why Sarnoff and his wife had received a $23,000 trip to China, and just what benefits - besides the obvious personal business opportunities and contacts that the Commissioner might have made - accrued to the citizens of Miami as a result of this junket.


While the Miami Herald is quick to get excited about the Governor traveling around on his personal jet while possibly conducting state business, their refusal to get equally excited about a City Commissioner and his wife accepting a $23,000 junket to China - which also included the Commissioner lying about who had paid for the trip the first time he was asked - or the Mayor of Miami traveling to South America to hustle rich real estate investors to put money into a project of a specific developer’s project doesn’t seem to bother them one bit.


No, when it comes to the Mayor of Miami peddling real estate for someone who has received some really sweetheart deals from the city, or when a City Commissioner lied to their reporter about a $23,000 junket, the refusal of the Miami Herald to get upset about this and start digging into these junkets is just one more example that the Miami Herald will always provide cover and protection to the the corrupt local politicians who are part of the Family and Friends Plan.


Even back when the Miami Herald was considered a real newspaper it always was loyal and obligated to the local power structure, but in the last 15 years or so the slugs who took over squandered whatever journalistic integrity the paper had as their concerns turned from being a newspaper to  a financial venture whose principal obligation was “returning value to their shareholders.


Along the way the editors of the Miami Herald became nothing more thanrpimps, whores and real estate speculators.


It’s Miami, Bitches!
