We heard through the grapevine that Louisville Mojo’s editor Rick Redding has started a media beef with our humble publication over an advertisement found in this week’s edition. The boastful promotional quote in LEO reads:
In today’s world of blogs, vlogs, Tweets and chain e-mails, a printed newspaper may seem a little old-fashioned. And it is. At least in the sense that LEO still produces real quality journalism with–get this–verified sources. Sounds almost quaint, huh?
For some reason he took that message as a personal insult and decided to go all Tupac Shakur on LEO, saying it’s dumb to take “shots at people like us,” and that they have way more readers and “the last word,” in this faux feud.
We were going to poke fun at the blogger-in-chief, that is until we noticed this web advertisement on Mojo, which shows Redding’s (much younger, chiseled) frame standing over 500-feet tall. No way we’re going to mess with him.
