I know that the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette -- like many in the print media -- is somewhat busy trying to navigate rough waters, but no stories on Lil Mayor Luke Ravenstahl's announced challenger, Carmen L. Robinson? Not a single mention?
I also acknowledge that this is the first mention of Ms. Robinson at 2pj, but we do have an excuse: It's not our JOB to report the news.
If Ms. Robinson's entry into the fray is not news than why have all these print, television news and blogs reported on Robinson's intention to run:
Pittsburgh Tribune Review 12/5So I ask again: Where's the Post-Gazette on this story?
Pittsburgh Tribune Review 12/6
Pittsburgh Hoagie 12/10
The Busman's Holiday 12/10
The Blog of Burgher Jon 12/16
Progress Pittsburgh 12/18
The Pittsburgh Women's Blogging Society 12/19
Pittsburgh Hoagie 12/19
The Pittsburgh Comet 12/19
And of course, the now defunct The Burgh Report
If you -- unlike the P-G -- are interested in Carmen Robinson, you can sign up for her mailing list at her preliminary website: http://www.carmenformayor.com or follow her on twitter @ http://twitter.com/Carmen4MayorPgh
An African American, Hill District resident, feminist woman running against Lil Mayor Luke surely must be some kind of trifecta in terms of belonging to groups that Lil Lukey has snubbed (now if only she had also litigated against Lamar Advertising).
