Now I Gotta Fight With Bill White

Bill White, columnist for the Morning Call, has a fan club. I know this because three of the "Whities" just bashed me for taking Bill to task about his film and food blogs. But the reason I'm writing, is because he wrote three blogs marginalizing Sarah Palin. Seems because she did better than a "deer in the headlights" he gives her some credit. Although I haven't heard much about it from the pundits, Palin handled Biden well on several subjects . In one interesting exchange, Palin started out with an ultra-conservative, against same sex marriage statement. Biden started out with a very liberal, respecting same sex rights in couple situations. Before the exchange ended, Biden had to admit their position on gays was actually the same. My guess is that Joe Biden is glad today there's only one VP debate. I did see White at the fair stuffing himself on chocolate cake, hope I never have to take a film history course from him at Muhlenberg College.

Mike,

Who cares what Bill White writes? Can we all agree that he and the Morning Call are entirely irrelevant?

Biden didn't know who was President during the crash of 29 and confused Article I and II of the Constitution.

Palin on the other hand wouldn't know who was President during the market crash of 1987 and probably has never read an entire newspaper article let alone the Constitution.

scott, i do not agree, as the dominant swayer of public opinion in the lehigh valley, the morning call is very relevant. i would like to see them cover more, and with less bias, but i'm grateful we still have a local daily.

wait, when I watched the debate, it was Palin who agreed with Biden, not the other way around...

Scott, while I think the MC is well on its way to bein irrelevant, it's not yet. Give it another couple of months.

On White (and Carpenter), not at all, neither one is irrelevant. I don't have any stats to point to, but I hear a good # of people talking about what they write. I think they remain influential.

I think for anyone under the age of 50 or even 45, the MC is irrelevant.

Bill White is the same guy that insulted high school students for exercising their first amendment rights outside of TMC's Bethlehem office.

Don't let his "fan club" get you down, Mike. They're probably no better than he is.

AJC, Can I wonder how Bill insulted High School students? I must have missed that one. I know they were protesting by MC offices one afternoon.

You can wonder whatever you want, but it sounds like you've already come to your own conclusion.

a.j., I honestly don't remember that - what happened at the MC offices that White insulted the BSD students?

Mike,
I am one of your so-called "whities" who apparently has offended you by daring to defend Bill...

First, I am by no means a "whitie", nor do I blindly agree with everything he writes, in fact have numerous times commented in opposition to his statements.

I simply felt it was an unfair crack you made about him spending too much time writing about food and movies...seriously, lighten up a little...must we be all politics, all complaining, railing, attacking, etc., 24-7? So he writes some fluff in between...if you don't like it, don't read it...but I hope your best criticism of him is not that he overeats from time to time,or watches a lot of movies.
