A stretch perhaps, but you could make the case that Beck undeservedly benefits from government largesse with this(Benson receives a direct subsidy from the Gret Stet, effectively rendering the Saints, in part, a government entity.)

Then again, Beck owes his radio career to rigorous (federal) government enforcement of radio frequency monopoly in a given market.

Anyway...8/28 is creepily close to NOLA's 8/29 day of infamy...

suckers + their money.

I hope you consider giving Time magazine the Corporate Malaka of the Year Award for

Benson is Benson. I'm glad Rita is running the team and they ain't a part of this poop.

Earlier in the week I reminded folks on FB who were offended by the donation to Clusterfuckmook Beck's 828 farce of this fact.

Rita is every bit as bad as her grandfather and probably worse in a lot of ways. We already know she's not above lying about Tom's attempts to move the team both before and during the Katrina crisis (see this Oyster post)

Earlier this year the Saints lobbied to weaken workers' comp laws in Louisiana. If Rita is running "the business side" of the organization this must have been her project. Right?

Also despite three plus seasons of "Halftime: Stand up and Get Crunk" playing in the Superdome following Saints touchdowns, when the song started to get attention outside of the dome thanks to the Saints' 2009 win streak, Rita told a stupid lie to the Times-Picayune suggesting that she and her friends in the owners' box discovered the tune and created the craze themselves by stadium personnel to play it.

Now that Ed Blakely is gone, I seriously can't think of a singe worse person in all of New Orleans than Rita LeBlanc.

Remember also she didn't grow up in New Orleans. If any Benson is going to move the team someday, it's going to be her.

"In 2008, the Bensons bought the local Fox station and this is what may have inspired his reversion to serious malakatude."

as a benson hater and saints lover im here to say it's the most dysfunctianal relationship i've ever been in.

my point being fox eight is hands down the best local t.v. news station right now.

them car dealers are a trip.
