I’ve already thrown in my two cents on here regarding the excessive media coverage surrounding the Joe Horn case. Many other Houston bloggers have, too. But since we live in a city whose sole newspaper’s motto seems to be “If It Smells, It Sells,” you can expect that the media frenzy over this case won’t blow over any time soon.
With that in mind, Cory over at the Houston-oriented blog Lose An Eye, It’s A Sport calls out Lisa Falkenberg of the Houston Chronicle in his typically wry and hilarious manner (emphasis mine):
Yes Lisa, we know, it’s always about you. Just like it was in the red light sequencing case, the story in your eyes is not the story, but your eternal quest to stand alone as a martyr of reason in a backwater town, in a red State populated by the marginally educated. We get that, we understand it, and we thank you for reminding us in every column.
LaE has noted before that Ms. Falkenbergs opinion isn’t relevent here, it’s too bad that she seems to be intent on ramming it down our throats. Because of the hyperactive antics of Quannell X and the curious obsession of Lisa Falkenberg the Joe Horn story has lated five news cycles longer than it should have.
We have a justice system, and a set of laws, in Texas that are designed to deal with this case based on the facts, Texas doesn’t need the Chron’s newly minted opinion-writer to decide these matters, it’s done just fine for years without the advice of Houston’s self-obsessed red-head and the only person whose writing actually made people yearn for the return of Rick Casey.
