Righting on the Wall is Moving

By Ecklebob Chiselfritz

We are changing our url due to unwarranted and continuing harassment from the social justice warriors at the helm of Twitter.

They have targeted and labeled me, Kim and our blog as being unsafe to the general public.

We may be dangerous to their delicate Liberal Progressive sensibilities, but we are not unsafe.

Memo to the newsroom: Sit and be a zombie

First they banned journalism from newsrooms in favor of advocacy (apparently). Now the York Daily Record’s publisher wants to ban profanity. Publisher Sara Glines doesn’t want to hear it, even when the computer system crashes on deadline. Her memo:

WTF? Is this sh** for real? Swear words have been tossed around newsrooms forever, but in this era they almost always come from women. (Hey Angela, a gang of longshoremen just came through on a tour; I think they were offended by your language. You kiss your boyfriend with that mouth?)

Anyway, that memo from January 2015 (I know it’s old, just saw it) wound up on the website of Jim Romenesko, who has covered newsroom doings for nearly as long as they have been declining. With it was a companion memo from Ms. Glines about the banning of Mountain Dew and Snickers bars from vending machines.

The twin memos inspired a string of comments, including this from Brian O’Connor of the Detroit News: 

A quick check of Ms. Glines’ career shows she is moving up the ladder, having just been appointed president and publisher of The News & Observer of Raleigh. She takes over today. Staffers there are advised stock up on candy bars. Soon there may be a black market.

Hot Damn! It's #Debate Night!

Take Me Down To The Infirmary

By Ecklebob Chiselfritz

I pulled lower back muscles mowing the lawn yesterday.
Now a cold is trying to take hold and kick my ass.
I'm thinking about sticking a fork in the toaster to complete the trifecta.

Gotta Keep A Runnin'

Ecklebob Chiselfritz - I'm done. Twitter has locked my account...again

This is ridiculous. I have done nothing to warrant the harassment I have received from Twitter. I'm done with Twitter. I will concentrate on blogging for the forseeable future. I hope y'all continue to visit us here at Righting On The Wall and interact with us in our comment section.

Is the horribly run Twitter up for sale?

The progressive liberal social justice warriors at the helm have done nothing except lose billions of dollars for shareholders in every quarter since day one of becoming a publicly traded company.

Of course Twitters founders and the investment bankers who rolled out the initial public offering made billions of dollars.
