The Miami Herald, under the current crew at McClatchy, continues to sink into irrelevancy.... Even when they should have Home Field Advantage on one of the biggest stories going: Zika
Here's the reality of South Florida journalism in the Summer of 2016: While the appearance of the Zika virus in Miami in four people who did not have risk factors associated with all known previous victims in Florida -and reportedly acquired in one of South Florida's most-popular tourist areas, Wynwood- was one of the top stories nationally, and this morning's headline strory in the Drudge Report, under, MOSQUITO NIGHTMARE HITS MIAMI and yet the Miami Herald's version of the story
appears in today's Miami Herald website NOT near the top, but rather, buried towards the bottom, under dozens of other stories that are of much less consequence and importance to people who live and work in South Florida.
I mention this because I just checked and it's clear that many of my earlier misgivings about Zika in Miami are going to be coming true this year.
In case you never received my previous emails or read my tweets about him, unlike Hoosier-by-choice me who went to IU from North Miami Beach, Ron Klain is a native-born Hoosier, but he chose to go to Georgetown and then Harvard Law instead of IU.
Despite that choice, things have worked out pretty well for him, though, since along the way
Ron's been a Supreme Court Law Clerk for Justice Byron White, was Vice President Al Gore's Chief of Staff and later performed the same duties more recently for Vice President Joe Biden.
He's now General Counsel for one of the top tech and investment firms in the entire DC area,
Revolution LLC, a firm with some truly amazing talent and resources, and is lead by former AOL founder Steve Case.
As it concerns today's news, though, Ron was also President Obama's Ebola Czar.
I know from personal experience that Ron has been talking clearly and seriously about the Zika virus funding crisis for many, many months, appearing on many TV and cable TV shows and even written some Op-Eds in the Washington Post to try to educate people and sound the alarm about this.
Despite his very hard work, the Miami Herald has never mentioned him since noting his Ebola appointment in October 2014.
Do you you see a pattern here?
