KO Public Affairs is the poster child for Maryland Democratic crony capitalism. Their business model relies on getting their friends in government to take more dollars from taxpayers to give to their corporate clients.
On Thursday morning, I read a Page 1 article in The Baltimore Sun that featured Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake saying how sad she was about the ¿state of our community.¿ She was referring to the shocking run of 29 shootings and 10 deaths in a six-day span in Baltimore. The article also included quotes from Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts saying the department¿s initial ¿messaging¿ about the crimes had been ¿terrible.¿
I turned on the TV at noon Wednesday to see how Baltimore stations handled what I was thinking of as fluff: the arrival of the first ships for the Star-Spangled Sailabration. I came away instead impressed with the performance of Baltimore's top two broadcast news operations, WBAL and WJZ.
