That curious news re pro #Jeb, pro #amnesty, anti #Trump Miami TV host Helen Aguirre Ferré getting hired by the RNC sounds very, well, Dolphins-like. And when has that been good for fans or anyone since 2000?

Honestly malpractice that I didn't include her saying "I'll go get honey" in order to swallow bitter Trump pill. https://t.co/drepXf8o3R— Adrian Carrasquillo (@Carrasquillo) June 2, 2016
Problem is RNC wants a serious operative w/ experience working w/ Spanish-lang networks but not going to go thru all of their interviews.— Adrian Carrasquillo (@Carrasquillo) June 2, 2016
This speaks to the disconnect between the RNC and Spanish language media. He's been a villain there for a year now. https://t.co/2cVbkmgx6s— Adrian Carrasquillo (@Carrasquillo) June 2, 2016
longstanding public criticism of Trump counts for little with the powers-that-be at the RNC these days, as they've now hired her for a task that she seems particularly ill-prepared for, and even worse, will make a bad situation worse, if possible.
It's like hiring a run-oriented head football coach when you have a young, healthy Dan Marino as your QB. A #disconnect.
The story has gottten lots of traction in the national press, but so far, has stirred little public notice or critical commentary in South Florida where Ferré and her frequently condescending attitudes were not just tolerated but embraced, in large part because her Conventional Wisdom attitudes almost always were 100% in sync with those of the Miami Herald Editorial Board & the perpetually misfiring Downtown Miami Biz community's. :-(
Reinhard is someone whom I have long criticized on this blog over the years for some very sound reasons about basic fairness, bias, clarity, context and accuracy, as anyone taking the time to check the blog's archives for past posts on Reinhard can discover for themselves.
No, a truth-to-power, straight-talker Helen Aguirre Ferré is NOT.
