· If you're interested in being our Media Watch columnist, send your credentials to my e-mail address above ASAP. We're still looking for someone fantastic to replace Walt Nett in several weeks. We want someone who is a good writer, a great reporter, knowledgeable about the local media, relatively free of conflicts of interest and unafraid of stirring the figurative shite. E-mail me!

What in the hell?!?
