Manitoba Newsmaker of 2009 and year in review

See if you agree.

They go after Manitoba Hydro, the NDP government (Doer/Selinger, Theresa Oswald, Dave Chomiak), Sherman Kreiner (former CEO of the Crocus Fund), City councillor Jeff Browaty and Mayor Katz, among others.

"CJOB news director Vic Grant offered The Black Rod first dibs on becoming the inaugural blogger to do his morning commentaries while he was on vacation. But we couldn't come to terms, so the deal went to Policy Frog."

Must be the first time his newsmaker's name is being kept secret.

I don't think we've heard the last of it.

Manitoba Hydro is another Crocus I believe...just waiting for more exposure.

I sure hope you're wrong JTF. As in financially bankrupt? Or morally bankrupt?

Mismanaged, fudged financials, politically agendaed, secretive....completely amoral...those kinds of things.

This whistleblower has opened a can of worms imo.

Does anybody know the identiy of the person or persons behind the Black Rod? I know one guy that says he does but he won't divulge.

Actually I just had a credible source tell me that The Black Rod is Marty Gold (92.9 KICK-FM).
Am I among the first to learn this or the last? I've been thinking The Black Rod was unknown persons (or wanting to remain as such)

I've thought the Black Rod was Marty Gold. Who knows? Most of the Black Rod's pieces go on for-bloody-ever and Gold is a long-winded wind bag. It makes sense...

Marty has repeatedly denied that he is the Black Rod.

Yup.

I listen to his show all the time. His show is like the scene of an accident: you don't want to look, and you probably shouldn't look, but you do. You always do.

He needs to announce his call in phone number more frequently though. One day I'm gonna call him and tell him to chill when he goes off on his umpteenth rant on the same topic...

I prefer Charles Adler.

What does Charles' size have to do with anything? He's a radio/media genius and probably the smartest guy that I know.

Time perhaps to expand your circle of acquaintances?
