    When Stacey Singer of the liberal Palm Beach Post tweeted to me Friday that she was “appalled” I’d “ever post such a thing,” I was kind of surprised. When I figured out what post she was talking about, I responded with the dark sarcastic part of my personality. Randy Schultz is The Post’s ultra-progressive Editorial Page editor, and from what I understand, Singer works closely with him. The post Singer was “appalled’ about, “Nearly one-third of voters think armed revolution may be needed,” written by BizPac Review’s Tom Tillison, involved a poll by Fairleigh Dickinson University that found 29 percent...

    Palm Beach County State Attorney Michael McAuliffe will be sorely missed by at The Palm Beach Post when he fades into the private sector in two weeks. Hundreds of emails leaked jointly to Gossip Extra and BizPacReview this week reveal an ultra-cozy relationship between McAuliffe and at least two of the newspaper’s figureheads. How close? In an email dated Nov. 2, 2011, Rhonda Swan, one of the shrinking newspapers’ remaining editorial writers, bypassed the proper channels and asked McAuliffe to get involved in an investigation. She asked him to check into why...
  • Leaked emails between Palm Beach Post and Michael McAuliffe reveal liberal bias

    BizPac Review has obtained hundreds of pages of email correspondence between Palm Beach Post employees and State Attorney Michael McAuliffe that appear to show an unusually close relationship between McAuliffe and both Palm Beach Post Editorial Page Editor Randy Schultz and Editorial Board member Rhonda Swan. The relationship appears so close that McAuliffe, Schultz and Swan felt comfortable enough with one another to bash Gov. Rick Scott, Jeb Bush and state Senate President Mike Haridopolos and to downplay Attorney General Pam Bondi's role in closing pill mills, while lamenting the lack of recognition for McAuliffe's efforts. In the following email,...

    Typical of The Palm Beach Post, the newspaper ran an article recently by Laura Green on Warren Buffett’s continuing rant that his taxes are too low (“Warren Buffett pushes higher tax rates, but some doubt those would be right or beneficial”). Contrary to the headline, which sounds as though the writer would quote a number of people who disagree with Mr. Buffett, Green quotes a grand total of one local entrepreneur who thought she was “being penalized for working hard or succeeding." She also included a substantial rebuttal by a local CPA who thought higher tax rates would not keep...
  • Palm Beach Post blocks comments on gun rights story

    The Palm Beach Post vividly illustrated its anti-Second Amendment, anti-gun bias in its latest article documenting the attempts by the Palm Beach County Commission to illegally regulate gun rights by refusing all comments on the Aug. 16 article, "County Commission: new state gun law could create 'Wild West' Palm Beach." Putting aside the inflammatory headline (I've written a few of those myself), the story isn't bad, and both sides of the issue are represented. So why did The Post use the "User comments are not being accepted on this article" dodge usually reserved for reports on criminals of certain favored...
  • Paper Rescinds Mahoney Endorsement (Calls for Embattled Rep. to End Campaign)

    The Palm Beach Post rescinded its endorsement today of Rep. Tim Mahoney and called for him to withdraw from the election. The newspaper's switch marks the first major Mahoney backer to publicly call on him to leave the race. "It is rare that a newspaper rescinds an endorsement, but in the race for District 16, The Post no longer can support U.S. Rep. Tim Mahoney," the editorial stated. The nearly unprecedented move comes after ABC News revealed this week that Mahoney had secretly paid a former mistress and campaign staffer, Patricia Allen, $121,000 to prevent a sexual harassment lawsuit as...

    Got word that the Palm Beach Post jolted the newsroom yesterday with a bulletin-board announcement that it is cutting costs in the next few weeks, including eliminating an unknown number of newsroom staffers through "early retirement" packages. Post management will also reduce the size of the newspaper by cutting pages, combining sections, and axing some sections altogether, according to a source. It's another chilling sign of the severe contraction of the newspaper industry, and the method used to convey the potentially life-changing cuts only added to the jarring nature of the news. The announcement was made via letter-sized memos from...

    Local GOP chief seeks converts in west Delray By George Bennett, Palm Beach Post Staff Writer Sunday, February 29, 2004 For the heavily Jewish, heavily Democratic population around west Delray Beach, the South County Civic Center is a sort of unofficial town hall. Palm Beach County Republican Chairman Sid Dinerstein ventured there early last week, walking through the lobby named for prominent local Jewish Democrat Murray Kalish and into the auditorium named for prominent local Jewish Democrat Andre Fladell to deliver a simple message: Jews should vote Republican. Dinerstein, who is Jewish, was speaking to a generally receptive crowd of...

    You have to hand it to the Palm Beach Post. It doesn't let either principle or consistency get in the way of its own zeal to punish a conservative for his views. And not just any conservative: Rush Limbaugh. Sadly, many conservatives are either unaware of what's occurring, or don't care enough to speak against it. First, a little background information. The state attorney in Palm Beach County, Democrat Barry Krischer, has spent more than a year and hundreds thousands of dollars trying - without success - to find a criminal charge to bring against Rush. Rush has made no...
