    Yup, they can say otherwise, but that’s exactly why they gave him the payday.

    I was a journalist for several years and I also wrote a weekly column that mixed facts with my opinion.

    It is called the "observer"

    What did Vince McMahon say to Randy Orton after he came back to TV after surgery and hadn't put back on weight? Called him a string bean?

    Yeah. A bunch of apologists with her daughter, and a couple of people tearing her corpse a new asshole

    I think Wendy Richter was the best part of it.

    What’s his beef with Mitchell?
    Technically a journalist can present their opinion, although they must make clear distinction between opinion and fact. That’s a slippery slope which is why journalism has been dead for a long time.

    When it comes to Meltzer, what does it matter what he calls his newsletter? That has zero bearing on whatever journalistic integrity he has. If he didn’t claim to be a journalist, then this would be a non debate. However, he has claimed that he is a journalist. I’ve heard him state it from as far back as when he worked for DeFord. The one thing that disqualifies someone from being able to call themselves a journalist (without question) is having any bias. Clearly Meltzer has bias when it comes to his coverage of pro wrestling. It would be laughable to suggest otherwise. Which is why I maintain that a good journalist should never opine. That slippery slope will one day find you being a cheerleader for Kenny Omega and AEW.

    And then they had both the apologists and the Moolah bashers say EVERYBODY knew the Spider Lady was Moolah

    For people who don't know that story, it would have helped to explain that Lisa Sliwa had been wrestling with the gimmick, so people could have seen what she was supposed to look like. Obviously Richter knew she had an "opponent." The episode made it sound like it was a surprise.

    Russo hates all the dirt sheet guys. He thinks they are unfair to him.

    Meltzer said that the other company going for AEW was Showtime. Showtime didn't want to weekly shows though, they wanted monthly special events like Clash of the Champions.

    That may have been the smarter move business-wise. Maybe do that for a year. Set up your infrastructure. Figure out what works and what doesn't. Then do a weekly show.
