"if guys are looking for h*** j***, or stuff like that, they're typically going to go to our Massage Section, licensed massage."


The arrest of three Orlando Weekly staffers -- that is, the Orlando Weekly owned by the Lynett family's Times Shamrock Communications -- was the talk of journalism last week. But it apparently wasn't the talk of Scranton, since the Times-Tribune opted not to write about to bury with an inside brief the story of three T-S staffers being charged in Florida with aiding prostitution by running escort service ads in the T-S alt-weekly in Orlando.

  • A conveniently-timed Orlando Weekly story about the "jaw-dropping list of transgressions" by the agency that arrested the Weekly staffers

    Three Florida journalists get arrested. That's news in Scranton? Doesn't matter who they work for.

    Never saw the point to going to a pro for a clap. What ever happened to "do it yourself and save"?

    So what if the T-S folks in Florida will get you a handjob. The T-S folks in NEPA will screw you up the a**.

    Sorry, NEPA media blogger, but the story did indeed appear in the Times-Tribune when it first happened. Glad to see you're still up on things even after you disappear for a few weeks. Perhaps you should Rip Van Winkle yourself again and report on media news weeks after the fact.

    We missed the inside brief. Sorry.

    What about the story on Murph giving metaphorical handjobs to Louie DeNaples? I don't think they've done that one yet.

    Murphy would love to plant a big kiss on Big Louie's fat ass.

    Those morons in fla. aren't journalists; they're ad people.

    Hey, I'd be the last one to deny that Times Shamrock is a no-class, ethically challeneged, Mickey Mouse operation run by pathetic hacks.
    But I don't think this story deserved more than an inside brief.
