I tuned in to Cameron Jackson’s KUCI radio program this morning to catch his reaction to Tuesday’s election (doing so, I likely doubled his audience).Â Having done commercial radio in New York state about 25 years ago, one of the best pieces of advice I ever got was “don’t insult your audience when the mic is on.”
No such luck with Cameron.
Regularly calling voters moronsÂ for passing certain bond measures, dipping into bad Ahh-nold impressions at every mention of the Governor, and burning air time while looking up statistics (showing a serious lack of preparation), Jackson made an interesting claim that Larry Agran stole the election in Irvine.
Some fact checks for Cameron:
1. Sukhee Kang outraised Christina Shea in Irvine; so regardless of the fact he raised about $200K to her $33K, he nearly doubled her contributions in the city and she got very little financial support from the Republican establishment in Irvine.
2. Irvine prgressives have no won the last 5 mayoral elections in Irvine; not going Republican doesn’t make Irvine voters morons.
3. Todd Gallinger beat Margie Wakeham, not the other way around as you reported.
4.Â Both Measure R and Measure S passed with wide margins.Â Voters sided with the Progressive slate and not the Republicans.
5. While Steven Choi was re-elected, it was only for 2 years.
6.Â It didn’t hurt the Progressive slate that the City went for Obama at 52 percent.
Glad you have that program to work out your anger management issues Cameron.Â I notice that the Irvine Tattler hasn’t been updated since October 29.Â Perhaps you two can get together and drown your sorrows in a big pity party about how dumb voters in Irvine truly are.
I think its the last time I’ll waste my Friday mornings.
