Doesn't the Tennessean owe us more?

The only recent news from the Tennessean on the Metropolitan Housing and Development Agency (MDHA) has nothing to do with questions raised by the Washington Post about what happened to millions of federal dollars sent to Nashville to develop a North Nashville neighborhood. Instead, their latest offering is the softest-hitting echo piece they could supply MDHA communications manager Julie Oaks, who naturally is a former journo herself once with WKRN.

We learn the momentous news via reporter Stephanie Toone that MDHA will be working in the alley beside Whiskey Kitchen to install a new drive ramp. Further proof that mad journalism skillz will never get in the way of pandering PR at the Tennessean.

Who the hell cares about the black hole for HUD money MDHA seems to be? Nothing to see in North Nashville if the Tennessean has anything to say about it.

  1. The Tennessean is where you go to learn to write press releases for McNeely, Piggott and Fox.

    From what I understand, it's called an "under-paid internship."
