Mike Webb, General Manager, Mike Webb Media, and former KIRO talk host fired in December after being arrested and charged with felony insurance fraud, has written a sad but amazing letter to the bloggers over at NW Progressive, Tuesday.
In a convoluted, delusional message, he blames NPI (the home of some of the most active liberal activists in the state) for not supporting him when he was fired from KIRO; thus causing not only his problems, but obstructing the great progressive movement.
"Well, I hope you're happy. Instead of relying on the tried and true American concept of innocent til proved guilty, your blog was joyful over my departure. Now, I have added 5 stations to my nightly network show and can only hope that more like-minded people will get there (sic) heads out of the sand and SUPPORT liberal voices who DO make it to MSM."
He fails to mention the dark legal cloud over his head caused by his very public arrest; and the crisis of credibility it caused in his professional life as an opinion maker.
Nor does he mention how embarrassed progressives have always been with his angry, reactive style so vulnerable to right-wing scorn. His exasperating blabbing over even friendly prime time guests he worked so hard to get on his show.
We, for the life of us can't find Mike's "nightly network show" on even one station, let alone 5. We'd be anxious to hear that show, if anyone could direct us to it or show us a program schedule that lists it. Mike?
