Impact?

In his latest article on the Southeast Texas Political Review, Philip R. Klein offers his opinion on KSET Radio, without actually having heard the station:
They have launched their web site and their line up which is.....well......interesting.
  • You can kick your day off with Sebastian and Friends? Whoever the h*** that is?
  • Moving on....The doctor doctor show. With a doctor that is a doctor of body and God.
  • Moving on...Then a geek....on geek radio talking computers....
  • Moving on...The Golden Triangle Entertainment show? Funny? Entertainment in ..... oh never mind...
  • Moving on...Oh crap.....we have to throw in a lawyer...Paul Clayton......
  • Moving on....And of course Jack Piper.
To stifle other opinions, Klein did not include a link to the KSET website. Philip's final analysis, based on an uninformed opinion:
So you politicos.....there is nothing there for you until you hit around 4 p.m. after Jack is a little warmed up. And then his liberal spew will start. And you can call...and you can dig him and watch him spit on the mic.
Other than Klein's feeble attempt at demagogy, what does this have to do with politics in Southeast Texas?

Meanwhile, neither Klein nor The Examiner mentioned this story from the Beaumont Enterprise:
County Commissioners to vote on $121 million budget

A $121 million budget that includes salary increases for county employees will be voted on Monday by Jefferson County commissioners.

The 1.8 percent increase from last year's $119 million adjusted budget is mostly related to the 5 percent salary increase for union employees and 2 percent salary increase for non-union employees, according to Patrick Swain, county auditor.

Union employees work in the sheriff's office, are corrections officers and deputy constables.

Non-union employees are elected officials and other department heads as well as clerical staff, Swain said.

County employees also received a salary increase last budget year.
The 1.8 percent increase and 2 percent salary increase contradicts PRK's previous statements.

Jack Pieper (not surprised PRK misspelled his name) will be a welcome voice of reason on local airways. If Phil wasn't as dumb as a fence post, he could learn lots from Jack: pronunciation, diction, grammar, courtesy, kindness.....

Phillip is just pissed because no one begged him to bring his show and half-dozen listeners to the new station.
