Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.

Dan S. was the liberal wing of Sytman & Bose, so it is no surprise that he would join the ranks of former media workers who take a gig working for gov't, which they previously were supposed to critically cover.

It's a long list, with people like Robert Mak, David Postman, Casey Corr(Times), Alex Fryer(Times, Lee Somerstein(KIRO) etc. David Ammons went to work for Sam Reed too, so this makes two local R's and probably at least 10 Dems. More to come after March 10 (PI finale).

How are we going to get unvarnished reporting, when they all know that their next job is likely to come from one of the politicians they cover?

Raskin Flackers

Don't put sytman in the same professional class as Robert Mak, David Postman, Casey Corr Alex Fryer, Lee Somerstein David Ammons. He was a peckerwood, flackery is a good place for him.

woody held

true, sytman probably has more integrity on his worst day than the rest of those guys combined on their best day.

Nothing wrong with being a peckerwood, either.

Woody Held Statistics


Sytman was given the upbringing of a priviledged pampered little snot in a wealthy Seattle enclave of "superior" folks. It showed on the radio, or when you had the misfortune of calling into a show where he was call screener- and ruined him for anything but The Mercer Island Report, on a local station.


hey Tommy008: What do you mean by "Superior Folks"? Why don't you just come out and say it...


You're right, mylklebe, Tommy means "Jews." He's subtle, indulges in the gentle bigotry of the adoration of himself.


haha Bertram. adore myself? oooh. good one. The truth hurts at times and i told the truth about Dan Sytman. I've talked to him several times when he was a call screener and have found him arrogant and abrasive. I meant just what i said by "superior people". His family and neighbors on Mercer Island, Jews and non-Jews alike, obviously endowed Sytman with his attitude that he's better than other people. Maybe he's grown up a bit, i doubt it, but when i dealt with him he was a punk with an "I;m bette than you", superior attitude. This kind of upbringing( a kid doesnt get this way in a vacuum) ruins someone for a career in something liek talkradio, which Sytman seemed to want to pursue. The back rooms of preppy, snobby law firms , or other such spots, however are places where you can thrive with this sort of background. Sorry to offend, Bertram (not).bwahahahaaha
