Well, we've found it. The worst professionally written piece about the Dolphins' Richie Incognito mess has been identified. Congratulations to the OC Register's "libertarian humorist" Ron Hart for penning a column that is all at once racist, sexist, completely stupid, and manages to both wonder if Jonathan Martin is gay and, of course, takes a pot shot at President Obama.
The Miami Herald has racked up three Pulitzers for commentary and another three for photography in its history, but the Doral-based paper is looking to shed some fat in both departments. According to a memo obtained by Romenesko and Random Pixels, the paper announced to staff this morning that they're offering a "voluntary separation program" to its critics, columnists, photographers and copy editors.
Dan Sileo is a former Miami Hurricanes linebacker and now he's a former WMEN 640 AM radio host. After the FSU game Sileo tweeted out that he'd pay $1,000 to any Miami Hurricanes player who took out Devonta Freeman with an injury during the possible rematch between the two teams in the ACC title game. This morning WMEN announced he was no longer with the station.
Hey Basketball Press,
How you doing? Remember us? We're the ones who told you to stop picking on Miami Fans (as well as some other gripes we might have aired over the years). Listen, we know this kind of seems nitpicky, but we're heading into year four of this and it's really starting to get annoying. So, we'd really just like to inform you of the factual information that the Miami Heat don't play in South Beach.More »
When the Miami Herald company announced they'd be producing a free Spanish-language tabloid called Caliente, they got tons of criticism for announcing they'd be including a picture of a weekly bikini babe. That's pretty standard for tabloids across the globe, but let's give Caliente credit for breaking new ground in the tabloid skin pics game. This week's "Modelo Caliente" is a dude.
Further proving that a still embarrassing number of my fellow gringos assume latin cuisine begin and ends with tacos, Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade asked meteorologist Maria Molina to host a segment celebrating "Taco Day" because she "grew up on them."
Molina it turns out was born in Nicaragua and grew up in South Florida. Tacos are a Mexican dish.More »
Earlier today, a woman tried to ram the White House gates with her car and was subsequently shot and killed. Because these are the times we live in a meme-star has already emerged from this odd tragedy. His name is "bro witness." He is a bro who witnessed the event while shirtless and wearing a Miami Dolphins hat, and who is now talking to police and the media. Despite his choice of sporting attire, he is not actually from Miami, bro. Which shouldn't be much of a surprise, because real Miami bros don't talk to the cops.
El Nuevo Herald's jefe is abandoning the city he recently described as "the candy store of American journalism" for a town world-famous for, uh, being the seat of Collier County.
