Fin

As of this am, I am no longer a "Portland Media Insider", a decision that was long in coming.

Therefore, this blog will be no more, but I hope someone will pick it up and run with it. It had its moments, but in the end, it was as hard posting as was my decision to get out of the biz. Not sure what I will do next, but I have lots of options. Maybe I'll even write something about this experience.

I leave with no "deep meaning" sign off, other than I wish my colleagues and friends well as they practice their craft. Don't be so hard on each other. Don't be hard on yourself.

Peter Ames Carlin -- please take the demise of this blog as an opportunity to do some real media criticism. Don't just give us the runs, hits, and errors of who's in, who's out, and who's on top. Praise TV stations that do good work, take to task those who do shoddy journalism.

(Yes, I realize this means you'll actually have to watch TV, not just the DVD screeners the networks send to you. Consider it an occupational hazard of a TV critic.)

Don't let your paper's new relationship with KGW scare you off. Take them to task just like the others. You're a critic, not a gossip columnist -- start criticizing!

It is a shame the pyramid of corporate greed has turned a great profession into mere job.

I posted a while back that I think this site is great, and whoever was responsible for it I would think even more of, rather than less.

This is a loss for all of us. I guess the only thing left will be whatever "Douchebag Sal" feels like putting on one of his sites, and the toilet of local media discussion turned political bash-fest, pdxradio, where they can't bring up anything without someone whining about politics three or four posts in.

C'mon, former PMI. Please tell us who you are. If a former employer wants to take it out on you, we'll know what station to NOT watch/listen/whatever.

Out of curiosity, does your departure have anything to do with the impending doom which seems to be looming over all mankind?
Are you looking to escape your fast paced job, and make your way into the vast Canadian forest to start anew in true harmony with the earth, in its final days?
If so, I applaud you.
If you are just leaving because you "just saved a bunch of money on your car insurance by switching to Geico," then I have to question your commitment to the cause.
Either way, I hope you find green pastures ahead, and possibly Osama Bin Laden's hideout. Because then you'd be really really really rich, and you could afford to build a robot to continue this great website.

For all of you who are touting Ken Ackerman as the blogger's identity because his last day at KATU was on Friday, does nobody realize Elaine Murphy's last day was also on Friday? I am not suggesting she is the blogger, but I am saddened that no one realizes that a good reporter that has been working in Portland for decades is gone. There was no decent send-off for her at KATU on Friday. Mike Rausch gave a big going-away speech, as well as cake, for Aimee Clark and Tamara Duricka, who was a producer there. Neither one of them had worked for KATU as long as Elaine, and I feel she was unjustly snubbed. Many of us will miss your reports, your professionalism, and your integrity, Elaine. Best of luck.

Maybe there was no sendoff for Elaine because she banned herself from the newsroom, due to the remodel and her allergic reaction to dust. The last thing she wanted was an allergy attack on her way to Hawaii. She will be missed, good luck to her.

My hunch is that the Ex-Insider is neither out of the business (or coming out of hiding as some of you have asked)... but simply finding a cover for folding a blog that's been poorly maintained in recent weeks. No way he/she will fess up to the personal attacks that originated under this banner, even if there was an attempt to be more civil in the end. I believe the ex-insider is still in the biz, hoping to survive the ownership change at KOIN TV.

I have enjoyed stopping by this site when things were slow and I need a chuckle.

I would like to make a clarification.

A couple of months ago someone posted that while I was employed at Willamette Week, I also looked for Bigfoot on the weekends. Not true...I protest. I'm far too busy playing golf and fly fishing.

I did, however, once hire a fellow, his name was Rip (cool name, who was indeed a Bigfoot weekend warrior. Once while riding in Rip's car, which was filled with rocks and sticks and boney remnants of expired creatures, I picked up a stick and said what's this one? Rip replied, "That one's special, he (meaning Bigfoot) held it in his hand. I could smell him."

As with most things, I can't be blamed for this hire. I cleared it with both Meeker and Zusman.

One last thing as this Blog retires. To all you Anonymous, name calling, mudslingers: Get some guts...you freakin' losers.

Holy cow, whoever called Murph an asshole has obviously never even met the woman. I had the honor of being her producer, and being fired along with her, at KINK. She is nothing but a class act--intelligent, generous and kind.

And I'm also considering starting a PDX media blog. Though I have nothing to contribute but snark (and personal glee at being out of the biz), I am a pretty good webmaster and a fair writer, not to mention a lover of the gossip. Got lots of server space, too. I have mad web skillz and I'm not afraid to use them!

I know some of y'all out there remember me (and let me just apologize to you right now; prozac and having kids have turned me into a better human being). Let's pull something together.

On behalf of the Goodbye Committee at KATU, I'd just like to enforce that Mike neither throws the "goodbye parties" nor does he schlep a cake into the newsroom every time someone leaves. That role is played by the people of the newsroom who love their co-workers and will miss them terribly.
Elaine is one of the all-time best. She will receive a proper send-off (hopefully in the way she's most comfortable with), but whatever she's given, she will always deserve more because she's, well, Elaine.
Just remember how busy newsies can be when putting these send-offs together; we've tried our best! The Goodbye Committee has been extremely busy lately, especially with the departure of one of its own key members.
I hope the demise of this blog serves as inspiration to the rest who still work in P-town. We need to look honestly at the work we do and ask how important it is to our viewers. We need to step back and question why we're putting certain stories on the air or in print. The area is wonderful and it has its challenges; let's make a better effort to incorporate those ideas into what we do every day.
I'm also glad to see whoever mentioned me actually spelled my name right.

Different Car Insurance

There are different types of insurance coverage available, thus the best question to ask when applying for insurance, is which policy is available to me. In the beginning of the 19th century laws were passed stating that anyone driver a motor vehicle is by law obligated to have a measure of coverage. The drive can take out full coverage, or else �third-party� coverage, which will protect them in the event an accident occurs. The policy will keep you out of the arms of the law even if you are pulled over for a traffic violation, by protecting you from getting citations, fines, jail, or towed vehicle for no proof.

Third party will offer a measure of protection, however it will not protect you entirely if an accident occurs, and most likely will not cover you if your car is stolen. If you possess a �High-Performance� or �Classic� vehicle, then you will need supplementary coverage, outside of third-party coverage. In fact, you will need full coverage, plus the supplementary coverage to protect your vehicle. The coverage offered to these customers is to protect them extensively, since the risks are higher and the cost of repairs on such vehicles is twice more expensive than standard vehicles.

If you only take out third-party insurance on a high dollar vehicle, then you will pay the cost of repair and suffer losses in the event you are in an accident, unless the other driver is at fault. However, if that driver is at fault, still you may pay the cost that is not covered under the other drivers insurance if he too has third-party coverage. The third-party coverage will cover drivers on �public roads,� or private roads.� The policy may offer limited coverage for �legal liabilities� and �passenger indemnity.� The passenger indemnity means that if you are driving and your passenger hit�s a parked vehicle with the passenger door then you will be covered. The coverage may offer protection against fire and theft also, which will provide you a measure of coverage in the event your car is stolen or fire occurs. However, you must read the terms and agreements carefully, since some third-party coverage is minimal and will not offer this protection. On the other hand, comprehensive full coverage will defend you on nearly every possible occurrence. Comprehensive full insurance coverage �is the complete form of car insurance� that �adds accidental damage� coverage �to the 3 policies discussed.�

The comprehensive coverage can protect you, despite the level of damage, and will cover you on many �personal accidents� in the event you are injured. Third-party coverage was not planned to provide the coverage that the comprehensive policies bring. Third Party Only is a liability policy that will prevent you from charge if you cause an accident. The Policy will provide a measure of assurance that if you are in an industrial accident �the innocent party�s repair/replacement costs are insured against.

Thus, insurance coverage is different and most companies base the pricing on age, driving history, gender, type of car, and so forth. Regardless of the type of insurance you are seeking, all policies have premiums. The companies will often ask customers to provide an estimated guess as to how many miles you drive each year and this too will affect your premiums. Most companies estimate that drivers should only drive around 12,000 miles per year, but it depends on the company. Furthermore, under law you are responsible for your vehicle, therefore, if you are seeking insurance coverage and intend to allow other drivers to drive the car, make sure you get coverage for other drivers, otherwise if the driver causes an accident, by law you will pay for the damage, loss, death, and any other problem the accident caused. Thus, if you have a new car, high-performance vehicle, and other risky materials or issues that can increase your premiums, take not of each area that may be considered a high risk and point this out to the agent ahead of time. It makes sense to get several quotes if you pose a potential high risk to find the best rates on car insurance plans.

Viagra is a drug that is prescribed for a very fragile disease like erectile dysfunction. Hence people prefer to go for this drug after going through the viagra info sites. In these sites people get all the information required and related to the drug.
