Morris Communications, the parent company of the Florida Times-Union and the St. Augustine Record, launched a right-wing website recently. (Note: the headline is not redundant, so save your jokes.) The company, which created a kerfuffle last year by endorsing Donald Trump as an “agent of change” in the T-U and other corporate properties, has doubled down on its […]

Jacksonville’s daily paper, the Florida Times-Union, isn’t known for sounding the clarion call of revolution. However, its unsigned editorial endorsing Donald Trump strikes that chord, representing the GOP nominee as the “change agent” that America needs, one that accords with the paper’s “center-right” tradition. “America needs a major shake-up. There is only one presidential candidate with the […]

In a letter delivered Monday to Florida Times-Union editor Frank Denton, Public Defender Matt Shirk called on the Jacksonville newspaper to withhold endorsement in the 4th Circuit public defender race. The problem, said Shirk, stemmed from his late July editorial board interview, which “shocked” and “disappointed” Shirk. Hank Coxe, a supporter of Shirk’s opponent, is a citizen member of […]

On Monday, Jacksonville’s mayor’s budget review committee convened to discuss issues related to the budget. The major allocation of interest: $750,000 moved from a reserve line item to an operating line item within the Shipyards environmental cleanup project. This money will complete Florida Department of Environmental Protection assessment work and will also help with “remediation […]

The publisher of my hometown newspaper has declared there’s no war on women. Frank Denton’s recent column in The Florida Times-Union, “Political buzzwords we could do without,”  was edifying for the most part. He made good points about retiring phrases, most of them martial in nature, that polarize the electorate and trivialize the most horrible […]

Jacksonville City Councilman John Crescimbeni is singular in his tenacity on a given issue. One such issue: the Police and Fire Pension Fund’s Senior Staff Voluntary Retirement Plan. Recently, Crescimbeni asked Treasurer Patrick Greive some questions about primary beneficiaries that perhaps get to the root of his PFPF pique. When PFPF head John Keane retires next Friday, he […]

An interesting divergence of memory has surfaced between Jacksonville Police and Fire Pension Fund Chair John Keane and a local newspaper editor. FloridaPolitics.com is at the center of this maelstrom. On Friday, we had an exclusive interview with a very emotional Keane, who charged the local Paper of Record with misrepresenting him and the Pension, helmed by […]

The solipsism of the paper of record. It never gets touted as a subscription benefit for the Florida Times-Union, but it’s a much more reliable feature than their website.
