Mr. Mark Ginther
Executive News Director
KING 5 Television
333 Dexter Ave. N
Seattle, WA 98109

Dear Mr. Ginther,

As I’m sure you agree, Robert Mak leaving KING5 News is a great loss to both the station and its audience, but every crisis presents an opportunity, and in this case it is an opportunity for KING5 to continue its proud tradition of public-affairs programming, while producing a show that you and others might actually “get.” Specifically, I humbly propose that you replace Mr. Mak… with me.

Think about it. As a freeloader on the public airwaves, you have a moral obligation (if not a legally enforceable one anymore) to serve the interests of the local community, and yet you also have a fiduciary obligation to maximize profits for your Texas-based corporate overlords. So what better way to meet both these responsibilities than by putting your 24 minutes a week of public-affairs programming in the hands of our region’s most outrageous and influential blogger?

Imagine angry shouting matches over arcane details of Washington state’s tax structure, or Democratic consultant Cathy Allen spewing an endless stream of profanity as former state GOP chair Chris Vance assaults her with a folding chair. And trust me; they’ll do it. They’re both self-promoters trolling for clients, and they’ll do just about anything to get themselves on TV.

With a nod to Mak’s legacy and a wink toward my own, I call my show Up Yours with David Goldstein, signaling KING5′s ongoing commitment to thoughtful political coverage and analysis while adopting the snarky and somewhat irreverent attitude of the Daily Show, the blogosphere and the other new media outlets that have been steadily stealing audience (and advertisers) away from traditional news organizations such as your own.

But perhaps best of all, Up Yours would provide KING5 with an affordable and stable means of fulfilling its public service requirement. Having been out of a job since losing my talk show at 710-KIRO back in January, I’m willing to work for cheap. And, you can rest assured that with me behind the desk nobody, but nobody, is going to offer $160,000 a year to lure away your host. I even have an idea for my first segment that I bet you’re going to love: a tantalizing expose on wasteful government spending. For example, did you know that Seattle bizarrely pays the mayor’s communications director a higher salary than the mayor himself?! Shocking, I know. And after we hear what Mak has to say for himself, I plan to hit him with a chair.

Now that’s showbiz.

I look forward to meeting with you at your earliest convenience to discuss this opportunity further.

Sincerely,

David Goldstein

Anyone else got the idea that Nickles is putting Mak on the payroll so he won’t be reporting anything unpleasant about Our Fair City any more?

2. YLB spews:

Hilarious. That show would easily get the highest ratings.

Gotta have a segment where we make fun of our favorite right wing blog lunatics like the minnow, miller, pudge and of course the pooper.

All you gotta do is flash a picture, a quote and a little commentary. People will laugh so hard and wonder how some among us can be so crazy. They’ll thank their lucky stars for their good mental health.

A beautiful thing —- ‘free market’ companies with public monopoly AND free money

The beauty of this theft of a public good is the fucking knuckle draggers who think that King 5/ NBC / ABC / CBS is any better than Pravda or Tass.

I sure hope you get the job – I don’t know how you could possibly fuck things up for the public any worse than they currently are, AND, I’m sure you might cause some heartburn to the local big wigs …

well, until somebody came up with 160k a year to make you think more rationally.

good luck.

Might have worked in the old days when the Bullit sisters had a say at King 5 – Goldy, you would have been a fourth or fifth-husband type for one of them…think of the settlement you would eventually receive at the eventual divorce to make way for the fifth or sixth!

But today?

Do you pay attention? Or have you always had the cognitive ability of a gnat?

Mak was a PAID on air reporter/personality. He is using the Republican ideal of getting while the getting is good. How can you possibly have a problem with that? Oh, wait, I know, because he is probably a Democrat you are opposed to him taking the big payday. I suppose if the mayor was a Republican there would be no outcry about the “taxpayers” dime.

Fucking hypocrite.

16. Roger Rabbit spews:

@7 Notice how it’s impossible for piper to acknowledge someone else’s business success without throwing in a personal jibe. Is a jealousy problem manifesting itself here? Is piper a small-time loser who, deeply disappointed by his failure to succeed in law (an admittedly hard profession to make a living in), and now pretending to scratch out an existence as a “human resources consultant” (translation: unemployed; unable to hold a job), on the verge of going ballistic? Is he a potential threat to society? Well yes, to some extent, because he votes Republican — which is antisocial and self-destructive in and of itself. Stay tuned for further developments.

@12 Mak is probably one of those reporters who has been too close to politics for too long and now has visions of a mayoralty or governorship for himself dancing in his head. Betcha he sees his new gig as a foot in a door he hopes will swing open to his own political career. If so, he won’t be the first reporter to become punch-drunk from proximity to power.

$160,000 a year could actually be a PAY CUT for Mak. These TV stations pay their personalities a lot of money these days.

Fucking asshole.

26. Piper Scott spews:

@17…RR…

By definition, a liberal is a sissy because a liberal is afraid to go without suckling on the gub’mint teat.

Never hear from any of the HA Happy Hooligans words of praise for freedom or liberty – instead, it’s gimmee, gimmee, gimmee – you pay, you pay, you pay!

To stand on your own feet without demanding gub’mint props or subsidies – that too frightening a thought for you? To make it on your own, by the fruits of your own labor, to be the captain of your own ship rather than just another galley slave on the gub’mint luxury liner.

No sense of unlimited potential or the sky’s the limit – instead tear everyone down to your base level of mediocrity. Not equality of opportunity, but equality of results – let the least and laziest among you dictate to others.

Live your lives in fear of risking all, of betting on your own ability to make it with nothing more than the labor or your two hands, the sweat of your brow, and the cleverness of your wits – win, lose, or draw, to say you are your own man.

A life lived in such fear is a life half lived.

How sad that liberals have such self-doubt, such inability to believe in not only their own potential but that of all humanity; your glass is perpetually half-empty and in constant decline.

The tide goes in, the tide goes out, but the optimist – the one who believes in himself as his own master rather than gub’mint as master – knows that in the end, he will prevail.

But trying to educate someone such as you about these truths is like paying to teach a pig to dance – a waste of money, and it annoys the pig.

The Piper

27. ByeByeGOP spews:

By definition, a conservative is a sissy because while the right wingers CLAIM to want smaller government, that claim goes away when they apply for jobs created by the GOP industrial military complex.

The right wingers talk about freedom, and what they really mean is freedom to run businesses that pollute the environment, make money at the expense of the poorest, and weakest among us, and to cheat, lie and steal as long as it’s in the name of money.

To fight in your own wars – is that too much for you? Sending someone else in your place may make you feel better about yourself, but it still makes you a chickenshit, chickenhawk. Relying on war and death and destruction to feed your ideals and your family is the cowardly way out.

You on the right can’t stand an honest debate. You don’t want to know facts and in fact, will go so far as to engage in criminal acts to keep the facts from seeing the light of day.

You on the right live your life pointing at other people’s “sins” all the while, you secretly shake in your boots hoping and praying nobody notices how sick, depraved and worthless you really are.

To be “conservative” in today’s climate is to admit that you are a hypocrite, liar and con man.

How sad that the right has no real ethical standard. Sad that they will say or do anything to steal power and money. Sad that they pretend to be above it all, while they are busy spreading their legs wide in a men’s bathroom stall, or raping their children, or having affairs with their best friend’s wives…

The winds of change are upon us and you on the right are very afraid of the reality that awaits you. Truth is your enemy. Honest debate, the free exchange of ideas, the possibility that you won’t get to run the show rocks you to your core.

But trying to teach you right wingers that if you really believe the things you say you do, you shouldn’t be afraid to honestly engage in real debate is a waste of time. You are stuck in your own universe, devoid of truth or the ability to understand or receive truth. You on the right are the true enemies of freedom. And you’re about to be defeated, hunted down, prosecuted and brought to justice. No wonder you are so afraid.

The Pooper Sucks

28. My Left Foot spews:

Pooper at 26:

Pooper,

How dare you? You self-righteous, arrogant bastard. Fuck you. And I mean that with all sincerity.

I know that you did not serve in the military. That makes you, and all Republicans, a COWARD and a SISSYGIRLYMAN. You come here and ride the back of your sons service to gain some sort of satisfaction for yourself. Jesus Christ, talk about sucking on a teat.

You are so bombastic, so hyperbolic, so paranoid that I honestly fear for the safety of those who should cross your path because you truly believe the bullshit that you spew. You are a failed lawyer, a soldier wannabe and a shit-for-brains conservative who couldn’t see the truth if God himself handed it to you in the form of gold plated tablets.

I am not sure how old you are, I am guessing we are in the same age range, but I can’t believe you and I were raised in the same America. You believe in getting what you can on the backs and sweat of others. Including your freedom to drop vomit and, excuse the expression, horse shit here.

I am one of those upon whose back you have ridden. I served this country. I have never taken nor asked for anything more than I have earned with my ability and my own two hands

Fuck you for suggesting that all liberals are takers. Fuck you for being a COWARD and a SISSYGIRLYMAN.

When you have served this country in an honorable manner, when you have placed your well being at risk, when you have done this for next to nothing, for pure love of your country, for nothing more than the self-satisfaction that one receives for doing the right thing, not because he has to, but rather, because he wants to because he can, well, then get back to me. Until then…..

@27 – 31…Kiddees…

Thin skinned are we??? You guys are so easy to rile and so insecure in your ideologies and value systems that you go all mouth-foamy whenever someone punctures your cheap balloons.

You toss personal accusations without data or evidence, you make nasty assertions with churlish and vulgar words and terms, and generally show the paucity of your beliefs and characters.

But at no time do you deny the truth of my thesis: the liberal hasn’t the faith in himself to make it on his own; a gub’mint subsidy is necessary for any quality of life.

I still don’t hear any discussion of liberty or freedom, the values upon which the country was founded. The Founders and Framers were concerned with them, not food stamps or coupons to get an HD convertor box for your TV.

And what would all of you know of honor? Honor is making it on your own – Honor is never asking the government for a penny, but always being willing to offer a hand up, not a handout – Honor is being fiercely independent and insisting that the only thing you are entitled to is what you earn yourself – Honor is never demanding a result, only asking for an opportunity.

Honor isn’t looking to the gub’mint for a subsidy or a bail out or an earmark or anything.

Don’t like corruption in government? Where do you think it comes from? If you did away with all the bloat and pork and freeloading by trimming government back to its essentials, then there wouldn’t be anything either to corrupt or be corrupted by.

The Republic was doomed when people figured out they could vote themselves largesse from the public trough.

Rather than being serfs looking to Washington, D.C. or Olympia for subsistence payments, wouldn’t you all rather be free and independent men out in the world making it on your own, supporting your families and being supported and encouraged by them?

Again, the only security in life is that which you make for yourself. Don’t like the way things are? Do better for yourself, don’t demand that someone else have less so that you can have more.

Live free…or die. Worked for Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys.

Make the world a richer place by working to add to its increase, not make it a poorer place by taking what isn’t yours. Again, if you did not earn it, you have no entitlement to it – what comes to you unearned is charity or a gift…or is stolen.

And don’t take yourselves so seriously – you’ll all blow a gasket! Lighten up! That you get so frustrated and angry – especially the very limited intellect, BBGOP – means that your souls are not your own – they belong to the one who can manipulate your emotions.

I say:

I am anything but insecure in any of my values, beliefs and actions. I am not foamy at the mouth. You did not puncture anything. You pissed me off with your flippant, arrogant, ignorant, personally insulting, ridiculous attempt at an argument supporting your “position”.

You say:

You toss personal accusations without data or evidence, you make nasty assertions with churlish and vulgar words and terms, and generally show the paucity of your beliefs and characters.

I say:

I call bullshit. You did not serve this country in any capacity. You are a coward. You chicken-shitted out of service. I made truthful assertions of you as a failed lawyer and coward. As for the paucity of my arguments, prove me wrong, asshole. You don’t like my language, fuck off. Find another website to pollute with your failed argument and ad homimen attack.

You say:

But at no time do you deny the truth of my thesis: the liberal hasn’t the faith in himself to make it on his own; a gub’mint subsidy is necessary for any quality of life.

I say:

Did you read what I wrote. I have a quality of life that far exceeds yours. I had a government “JOB” protecting your ass from all foreign threats. More that once MY ass was in the direct line of fire protecting your right to be an ASS. My retirement is no subsidy. Again, fuck you. You are still working. I am retired living the life of a man who earned his way…. all the way. I guess that I made better decisions than you did. You can try harder. I already did.

You say:

I still don’t hear any discussion of liberty or freedom, the values upon which the country was founded. The Founders and Framers were concerned with them, not food stamps or coupons to get an HD convertor box for your TV.

I say:

My service exudes 100% the belief in liberty and freedom. I value those ideals above all else. The founders and framers and subsequent leaders have had compassion to help the less fortunate. If you need a converter box, I will be happy to buy you one. I have no problem helping the needy.

You say:

And what would all of you know of honor? Honor is making it on your own – Honor is never asking the government for a penny, but always being willing to offer a hand up, not a handout – Honor is being fiercely independent and insisting that the only thing you are entitled to is what you earn yourself – Honor is never demanding a result, only asking for an opportunity.

I say:

Honor is my way of life. I have made it on my own, without a handout. I am independent enough to be able to tell you to fuck off, man enough to knock you out and honorable enough to pick you up and explain where you went wrong. The only result I demanded was the to give my all and creating the resulting opportunity. So Pooper, kindly step aside.

You say:

Honor isn’t looking to the gub’mint for a subsidy or a bail out or an earmark or anything.

I say:

Honor is knowing when you are over-matched and need help. Honor is asking for a hand up as well as offering that hand. This is completely lost on you, Lunkhead.

You say:

Don’t like corruption in government? Where do you think it comes from? If you did away with all the bloat and pork and freeloading by trimming government back to its essentials, then there wouldn’t be anything either to corrupt or be corrupted by.

I say:

George Bush, Tom Delay, Larry Craig, Mark Foley, Duke Cunningham, etc….etc… Now lets talk about corruption, asshole. You have some nerve.

You say:

Rather than being serfs looking to Washington, D.C. or Olympia for subsistence payments, wouldn’t you all rather be free and independent men out in the world making it on your own, supporting your families and being supported and encouraged by them?

I say:

I am free and independent. I made it on my own. Not by riding the asses of others and bragging about my kids to make myself look better. I brag about my kids as a testament to their character and honor. Unlike the cowardly individual that you are.

You say:

Again, the only security in life is that which you make for yourself. Don’t like the way things are? Do better for yourself, don’t demand that someone else have less so that you can have more.

I say:

I don’t like the way things are. I am voting for change. I demand that you share in the cost of that change. I demand that you, whether you like it or not, help to take care of the less fortunate. The era of selfishness is over. With great wealth, comes great responsibility…to paraphrase.

You say:

Live free…or die. Worked for Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys.

You can quote it. You can even think you believe. But sending others in your place to fight a worthless battle does not count. Cowardice is evident in all you say and do, Pooper. I pity you.

You say:

And don’t take yourselves so seriously – you’ll all blow a gasket! Lighten up! That you get so frustrated and angry – especially the very limited intellect, BBGOP – means that your souls are not your own – they belong to the one who can manipulate your emotions.

If you substitute the word “self-reliant” where you’ve used honor you would be spot on.

Honor, has nothing to do with these things you mentioned. Honor is not something you measure in dollars and cents, whether you gave a handout or a hand up, honor is not about being independent, but rather interdependent, honor is never what “you earn for yourself” but rather what you give to others of yourself, honor places no demands on you or gives you an opportunity, you give honor the results.

As I’ve said before, when your write your mind is on parade for all to see. And what I see here is a man who never served our nation’s military, who knows nothing of honor. Especially, the kind of honor that is battle tested.

44. rhp6033 spews:

# 40: As Robert E. Lee explained, “honor” and “duty” are inexoriably linked. One owes a duty to his family and his state, regardless of personal sacrifice, for the common good of both. “Honor” is what results when “Duty” is fulfilled.

In contrast, Republicans argue that what is good for them, personally, is good for the country as a whole. Like Mitt Romney arguing that his sons best served their country by campaigning for him. Like Bush & Co. arguing that the wealthy need further tax breaks in order to persuade them to invest within their own country, with the off chance that perhaps it might result in additional low-wage jobs for others.

45. YLB spews:

For Pooper, Mark1 and the rest of that motley crew:

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar

Shape without form, shade without colour,
Paralysed force, gesture without motion;

Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death’s other Kingdom
Remember us—if at all—not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.

The eyes are not here
There are no eyes here
In this valley of dying stars
In this hollow valley
This broken jaw of our lost kingdoms

In this last of meeting places
We grope together
And avoid speech
Gathered on this beach of the tumid river

Sightless, unless
The eyes reappear
As the perpetual star
Multifoliate rose
Of death’s twilight kingdom
The hope only
Of empty men.

Sure sucks to be you wingnuts.
