With F-bombs flying…
Jim Goodmon tells NC Spin -“YOU’RE OUT”
Just a coincidence… suuuure it is.
Yours truly, your favorite NOT-liberal source of What, Why & Who, announced earlier this week (Nov 12) that the insipid political nerd-fest NC Spin’s future on WRAL was down to single-digit days if not hours… and… then
On Wed – Nov 15; “Prince John” Hood (a.k.a. The guy who killed Plotthound … a.k.a. Art Pope’s Boy Friday) announced on his little newspaper / blog Carolina Journal that…
NC Spin HAS indeed been evicted from WRAL-TV5… where it was totally subsidized by Jim Goodmon… and, beginning in January…..
… will be on WUNC-TV4 where it will be subsidized by “us” the taxpayers of North Carolina and anyone foolish enough to donate to the damn thing.
… No Art (Pope) No, don’t do it!
We have not yet confirmed that the insipid political nerd-fest will probably change its name…
From NC Spin… to “(not) A Chef’s Life”
…hoping to glom a few viewers from PBS’s very popular show about Kinston’s Vivian Howard and her Chef & The Farmer restaurant. (not) The Woodwright and (not) Sesame Street were also considered.
NC Spin’s crackerjack marketing staff plans to canvass the state from Murphy to Manteo visiting each and every one of NC Spin’s 162 regular viewers presenting each one with his/her own refrigerator magnet with details how to find the show at its new home.
The magnets show Hood and his little buddy Chris “Blinky” Fitzsimon hitting one another with nerf bats while moderator TomCampbell makes a “Home Alone” face…
That Jim Goodmon wanted to evict his boyhood chum – Campbell – and Tom’s nerdy little pals from WRAL had been common knowledge for quite some time.
What began some years ago as ever-so-charitable Jim’s offer to make Tom feel like a local TV show celebrity, had evolved into a is he EVER going to get a real job and move out of our basement situation.
Not only that but, Goodmon had been grumbling for quite some time that he really didn’t like seeing that unctuous little weasel Hood on his TV station. How do you really feel, Jim?
And then there’s THIS from a 200% reliable longtime CBC / WRAL super-insider…
The parting of the ways between Goodmon and Tom Campbell was very ugly. ….. F-bombs flying everywhere. Jim was furious with Tom for having Pat McCrory on his show. Jim Goodmon has lost his mind.
With WRAL now embroiled in that ridiculous Raleigh Christmas Parade Kerfluffle, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to “change the locks on the studio door” and hope Tom gets the message. Tom “got the message”.
If we can get our hands on one of those refrigerator magnets we’ll post a picture of it.
OK, admit it… you’re trying to recall the words to It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels, aren’t you?
