If I was in charge at the Herald....

Unless you've been in a coma for the past couple of days, then you've probably heard about Miami-Dade mayor Carlos Alvarez's rambling, hour-long tirade yesterday against South Florida's Number One Information Source, the Miami Herald.

Alvarez characterized the Herald's coverage of pay raises given to top Miami-Dade cops and firefighters as "biased."

Alvarez also couldn't resist taking a shot at the Herald's poor financial standing, "How can you have a monopoly and be going bankrupt?"

Good question Carlito!

Perhaps the answer to your question can be found on the front page of today's Herald.

There's no mention of your fine press conference, except for a sentence telling readers to turn to page 7A.

Everyone in South Florida is talking about your attack on the Herald and they bury it on page 7A? WTF??

I think you may be right about "bias."

Now if I was the editor of the Herald, I would have given your press conference the coverage it deserved!

  1. I really can't tell which one is more poorly run--county government or The Herald.
