Mitch McConnell Runs Fun Grocery Store Spot

October 27th, 2014 · No Comments

Mitch McConnell started running this grocery store/deli ad over the weekend: Many seem to love it but something about it doesn’t quite sit right with us. Maybe it’s the green screening? Maybe it’s the fact that every other ad from both campaigns has been terrible? Who knows? He’s also running this spot:

Hugh Jass But Not A Living Wage, Apparently

October 21st, 2014 · 3 Comments

Polling aside, this is what ate the media alive yesterday: Democrats can complain that this is unfair, sexist, typical, petty, whatever. But it’s pretty damaging with meemaw and poppop voter. Unlike John Yarmuth, whose restaurants are franchises, this is a joint owned and operated directly by Grimes’ family. Paying both low wages and sexualizing her [...]

Breathitt County Is Basically A Giant, Hot Mess

October 10th, 2014 · 5 Comments

Fascinating to see WKYT finally get interested in the Joshua Powell mess. Unfortunately, the station continues a string of lazy, unoriginal reporting in Lexington by not only using our footage (hello? you can see our logo on screen for a moment) but not bothering to provide proper attribution.
