    JRC's (or DFM, or whatever the company's alphabet title is these days) Connecticut-cluster publisher Matt DeRienzo writes an editorial July 19 urging a local hole to un-invite Nugent, which didn't sit too well and generated feedback galore (311 comments): http://www.nhregister.com/articles/2013/07/19/opinion/doc51e9827f5056a328273080.txt

    Then Matt writes an editorial the other day linking Nugent and the KKK/racism to Fox: http://nhregister.com/articles/2013/07/29/opinion/doc51f70217192fd096312627.txt#comment-982916621

    That didn't sit too well, either, so today Matt writes a mea culpa but O'Reilly ran with it and planned to have a spirited debate tonight: http://www.nhregister.com/articles/2013/07/31/opinion/doc51f995cc3a333682375150.txt

    On a local note, I'm surprised a hipsterish locale like Toad's Place would be interested in a guy like Nugent...

    Sheesh, if I were still alive, Ted would be playing a private party for my backyard barbecue.

    Wasn't Nugent supposed to be in jail or dead by now?

    Matt DeRienzo is more offensive to journalism than Ted Nugent is to everything.

    Hey, beej, welcome back! I guess I'll be handing my posting crown back to you in a couple months.

    DeRienzo was the guy who complained to Romanesko about his criticism over the word "Shits" in a headline. He's the one who whined that they hadn't cut copy editor jobs, they merely had given them a lot more work, so it wasn't management's fault.

    Why the fuck does this matter anywhere outside of Connecticut?

    Well, it brought BYH back (do I win a prize?), and it's actually an interesting story and ... wait, what was the question again?
