Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of North Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

Miami Herald grave robbers at it again! Herald's threadbare Broward homepage runs 15-day old story as Breaking News to fill-up space!

Miami Herald grave robbers at it again!
Herald's threadbare Broward homepage runs 15-day old story as Breaking News to fill-up space!

Shades of 'The Donald Misdirection,' wherein the Miami Herald intentionally ran a weeks-old story about Donald Trump's consideration of a presidential run as "Breaking News" on their Broward homepage, sometimes as one of Top Three stories in all of Broward County, WEEKS after the story first appeared online, and, yes, WEEKS after he formally announced he would NOT run.

It didn't matter, though, the Herald desperately wanted eyeballs, so there that story stayed, day-and-night, day-after-day, week-after-week. Who needs editors!

I wrote about this subject the first time on May 16th in a post titled, Answer: It's about Donald Trump. Question: Why is a month-old story still on Miami Herald's Broward homepage under 'Breaking News'? Blame Jay Ducassi, http://hallandalebeachblog.blogspot.com/2011/05/answer-its-about-donald-trump-question.html.

I then followed-up on May 18th due to continued grave robbing of old stories with a post titled, Donald Trump Redux is further proof of the Miami Herald's gross incompetency and fundamentally-flawed idea of (and coverage of) Broward County in 2011.

That the Herald is so oblivious to both reality and public perceptions, and continue to do such a piss-poor job of covering Broward County issues, personalities and trends in an intelligent fashion, not to mention, local government, that they have to resort to running old stories to fill-up the space that ought to be more properly filled with CURRENT stories on those subjects, tells you plenty about journalism as practiced by McClatchy's Miami Herald under publisher David Landsburg and executive editor Aminda "Mindy" Marques in the year 2011.

What do you call the anti-Pulitzer Prize?

Do you see the link for the last story under Breaking News in the left-hand column?

  1. That is why nobody reads it and going broke. Now they will have to pay a fee to Hallandale Beach for each newspaper dispenser so I assume there will be fewer places to buy it. The Herald only have to blame themselfes for failing.

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's yet another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
