    #4 You can rip him for running a disparaging cartoon about our program. Pretty simple concept. I hate any and all that do anything wrong to UK. You are either with us or against us. LHL is irrelevant, not even worth the time.

    Please ask him what the effects of Marcus Camby’s agent & Derrick Rose’s SAT issue have to do with the Home-Neutral Court debate regarding IU.

    Also, his comments in his interview with the NY Times indicates his cartoon was about the commercialism of the NCAA. Why doesn’t he do a cartoon then on the LHL profitting off of the UKBB success?

    The Herald Leader has a stated policy of “activist journalism.” Their attitude has always been “whatever it is, we’re against it.” They don’t see their job as being a supportive entity, but that they “expose” the injustices they see. It’s why the good things that happen in Lexington get such short shrift, but the headlines email I get every morning LEADS with the police blotter. They see Lexington as an insidious cabal of “good ol’ boys,” and would love nothing more than for the whole thing to crash and burn.

    The best way to combat this yellow nonsense? Read KSR, the Southsider, follow locals like Streetsweeper and Kaintuckeean on twitter, and actually get involved in your community.

    Thamel’s obsession with Cal is the front for Pitino’s resentment and jealousy of Cal. That is the origin of Thamel/Forde jihad on Cal and Kentucky…shitino.

    Matt,

    Please don’t waste too much time discussing why they would run something they know would infuriate their subscribers. Journalists thrive on the notion that they provide info that others don’t WANT to know, but NEED to know.

    My issue is that the cartoon is neither clever nor impressive in a satirical nor creative way. I’d like to know precisely what he was attempting to portray with the imagery he chose and then please proceed to destroy his ignorance on the subject matter in which he attempted to satirize.

I think that Joel showed his IU roots and thats okay. I love Calipari, I think he is a marketing genius, but I think that this has to hurt. I bet he turns it around and makes it a positive.

    30. Of course Matt apologized and flip flopped on his opinion of John Calipari, his job/website depended on it! Just like Bob Knight had to start saying the word Kentucky on ESPN, his job depended on it! But that doesn’t not mean that deep down he still believe that Cal is dirty.

    I can definitely understand that publishing negative editorials and cartoons is sort of biting the hand that feeds you, but at the same time it’s a real thin line between homerism (LCJ?) and outright negativity. Local media outlets should not necessarily always blow sunshine at the fan base. When things go badly we need those outlets to be fair and honest with us (BCG years?). Honestly I don’t think news media should play to the “mob”. I also think it’s hypocritical to call out the LCJ for NOT reporting negatively about Louisville, but then call the LHL to the carpet when they do…

    Here’s what the HL is getting out of the intentionally negative articles….you’re talking about them, and that’s a victory for them. Would you be talking about a sports article in the HL from May for a positive article? Doubtful. But a controversial negatiave drawing or Jerry Tipton writing one of his usual pieces stirs the pot and draws attention to them. They just want to be relevent again so badly they’ve stooped to just being the bottom feeders. Best way to put them out of business is to not even acknowledge they exist.

    Even if it’s true, I don’t think that criticizing the cartoon for being bad for business is the right position to take. Voicing counter-majoritarian opinions is an important part of the newspapers’ role in society and an important exercise of free speech. The problem with Pett’s cartoon is that engages in innuendo that is based in a simple-minded and unfair reading of the facts, especially with regard to the IU situation. This is the kind of scurrilous attack that Cal’s mindless enemies engage in. Cal has done nothing to deserve this treatment from his hometown newspaper. Pett needs to get his facts straight.

I helped the next renters move in and he left a bunch of his old stuff there. There was a bunch of Bloomington and IU stuff that he had drawn back in the day. he also had grow lights in the basement and playboys in the closet too!! hahah

    Can we get Oscar to shank Joel Pett like he did the mayor? That’d be sweet!!

    What just happened? I was tuned into Kentucky Sports Radio, but then a 20 minute Pink Floyd song broke out from Fake David Beckham.

    Ironically, the Herald Leader made thousands of dollars selling Final Four memorablilia. They cashed in on the success of the team. Maybe the dollar signs he drew represent their own greed.

    Matt, Joel P did not hang himself. It was obvious his editorial/journalistic integrity/freedom will always stay on a pedestal above any ‘business model’. That is where this argument lives and it appears the enthusiasm of fan’s being upset about makes most listeners miss it. Thanks Matt.

    Fake David Beckham would whoop Fake Barney in a cartoon drawing if Pett drew it. Because facts dont matter!

    Peyton – it’s like not voting for a politician you don’t like or agree with. Some of us have decided to not vote for the Herald Leader as our newspaper because we don’t like it or agree with it. Peyton I’m sure likes Merlene (racist) Davis, Tipton and Pett.

    Come on, Matt. The NY Times is a hack newspaper now days. Once upon a time, the NY Times was legit. But those days are long gone. The Herald Leader and NY Times are all the same. Outdated forms of communication that have not kept up with the times. Point blank period.

    I understand the idea of “journalistic integrity.” I did graduate with a journalism degree from UK. I do not believe that constantly trying to bring down something we as a region are so proud of has anything to do with journalistic integrity.

    The LHL has only won three Pultizers: One for the UK investigation in the 80s, one for editorial reporting, and one for editorial cartoons. THERE is your answer.

    Also tons of people get their news from the herald leader and they want to support local products. Sorry not everyone is on your elitist level and read the new York times. Seems like a double negative from your part buddy

    It’s funny because they teach in journalism school to basically be the watchdog. They need to watchdog more important issues than UK basketball.

    Give us a hint as to what we didn’t hear . Sounds like Joel Pett got his vovabulary from listening to Bob Knight’s foul mouth while a student there. Did he ever criticise Knight for insisting the games not be on campus? I doubt it.

    Why would a local newspaper take such an unfair and direct shot at our coach ?? To me this is something that local Lexington folks should respond to by canceling their subscriptions to this “paper”…….what a jerk.
