    With F-bombs flying…

    Jim Goodmon tells NC Spin -“YOU’RE OUT”

    Just a coincidence… suuuure it is.

    AP logo

    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.

    Home Alone

    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…

    Original plans to also include a CD of Rufus Edmisten singing It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels was scrapped. Rufus refused to supply the CDs. NC Spin’s promotions budget is sorta tight.

    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?

      If UNC-TV or PBS-(Pandhandling Broadcasting) produces a political show, ala NC SPIN, with North Carolina’s favorite toadies, then I would think they would eliminate the “Mark Rotterman” talk fest that is watched by hundreds. Two with an affiliation to the John Locke Foundation and Art Pope would melt the leftist enclave. Although both shows combined would have the same audience. Shutins.
      P.S. Maybe they can get the ever smiling D.G. Martin to host the round table. He could be NC’s Charlie Rose.

        Wonder if WUNC will use John Hood as an on-air beggar in their next Telethon ?

        • bobby poon Reply

          Using Hood to “beg” for Pandhandler Broadcasting would be at least as bad as the way the Social Justice Warriors view Silent Sam in Chapel Hill. They would not only lose donations,the studio may come under siege.

            Wonder if Art Pope would even send in $20?

              I would even make a contribution-The SJW’s would level the place. The look on the other libs faces having pasty faced Hood participating would be enough to get me to watch.
              If it takes $500k for police protection for a milquetoast conservative to appear and speak in Chapel Hill, how much for police protection for Hood to appear to beg for Panhandler Broadcasting? I say easily over a million.

      AP, did you read what BobLee said? “He (AP) hoped someday to have an AgentPierceSaid column worthy of being posted on BobLeeSays. He’s come close a few times… darn close… but he wasn’t quite ready.”

      Apparently he forgot about the legendary column about NC’s Global Trans Park. I surprised it wasn’t awarded a place in the National Column Hall-Of-Fame.

        Well yes Trans Park was A CLASSIC… but BL thought it too Kinston-specific for most BLS viewers. His is a GLOBAL audience.
        With Jim Goodmon’s delusional dream of becoming George Soros of The Triangle, this one met BL’s criteria.

      I wonder if Jim will let his Boy Friday Blinky be on the PBS show? It is going to be sad not having Doofus Edmisten, “Moron” Brad Crone, and Old Joe Mavertic around any more. I wonder if they will get to keep their Youtube channel…at least there it is easy to skip over Bert/Blinky’s screed.

      I agree with the insider that Goodmon has lost his mind. I could see if Pat was just the mayor and had never been Gov, but he is at least relevant to the recent political situation in NC. I guess Jim is just wanting his stations to only be a propaganda outlet. Luckily I no longer need to watch the channel at all…Hulu has the one NBC show that I watch so I do not have to patronize them at all. And if I hear my wife tuning in to their news, I just holler to her to switch to ABC 11 or WNCN 17, I may just need to delete 5 from being able to pull up on my TV.

        LATEST NEWS is that the Feud between WRAL and ATT U-verse is NOT going to be resolved. Another in a long line of Really Stoopid Moves by CBC / WRAL.
        Blinky is now in Chapel Hill … “among his own kind” … but surely will be with Hood on the WUNC show.
