OrangeTV Review: “Coeur d’Alene Now” re: Media

Patrick/OrangeTV: Well, I just sat through the CDA Now show. A few thoughts … They really need to hire a professional to put the graphics and music and everything together. So hokey! A real host would’t hurt either. Not that Sandi isn’t glam in her own way, but Oprah she ain’t. She needs to at least update her 80’s school-marm look. Dave, you’re photogenic, it’s not true what they say about the camera adding
extra pounds etc. Nice to see everyone get along so well. I half expected some type of mean-spirited debate to erupt, which certainly would have livened up this rather dry presentation.

DFO: so they finally got around to airing the show? Actually, I had a Plan A and a Plan B. Plan A was to play nice unless Coeur d’Alene Press Editor Mike Patrick decided not to do so. Plan B was not to play nice. Early on, he started to say how the Coeur d’Alene Press was the local newspaper and that the SR did a good job with national/international news. At that point, you heard me say: “That’s a shot across the bow.” In other words, I told him ahead of time that he fired on me and I would come back at him. Notice how he played nice afterward? I’ll guarantee that the program easily coulda turned into a throw-down. But I wanted to avoid that, if possible, for Sandi and Woody’s sake. It was suppose to be an informational meeting, not one to see who could score the most points. After all, it wasn’t HBO After Dark. Thanx for watching, Patrick. (Future broadcasts: 1, 5, 7 p.m. Friday, Sunday, Monday and next Wednesday. At least, that’s what the schedule calls for.
