Raphael Sonenshein Talks Politics at SPJ-LA "Political Party"

Raphael Sonenshein

The Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ-LA) held a "Political Party" this past Wednesday night at the Redwood Bar & Grill with political guru and Cal State Fullerton professor, Raphael Sonenshein. Advance apologies for the quality of the lighting--it wasn't the best lit room--but the sound is good (Beastie Boys and Neil Diamond samplings notwithstanding).

There was a contingent from Cal State Fullerton as well as a number of SPJ-LA members like SPJ-LA Vice President Alice Walton of City News Service, SPJ-LA Membership Director Claudia Peschiutta of KNX 1070, SPJ-LA President David Dow (former CBS News correspondent), SPJ-LA Board Member Joel Bellman of Supervisor Yaroslavsky's Office, and several others.

Some interesting tidbits:

  • Yes, several of us did try to elicit an answer from Joel regarding the mayoral race but he stayed on message (Yaroslavsky is not running).
  • Sonenshein blogs at the Jewish Journal; it's called Jews Choose 2008.
  • Sonenshein talked about issues facing African-American candidates, the National Campaign Press, the Age Factor with McCain, the dysfunctional Clinton campaign, how Obama needs to go on the offensive, rebellious voters and much more (including some interesting thoughts/advice on Ferraro, Spitzer and Patterson).

This is news? EdHed only writes about the events he brags that he was at and in marching order to his Mexi-Pest apologist heroes pandering to the pro-illegal crowd.

At least we have Mailander.

Ed what do you think of Jack Hoff deleting reader comments on the blog? He is worst than Homeless Dave.

Jack Off is not funny. He is bringing the blog down. I hate to say I miss Homeless Dogg. I hate him but at least he wasn't just stupid jokes, cartoons and fart jokes.

Just because Ed HeadUpAss has worked for Cedillo, doesn't mean he has to be an illegal alien pandering pendejo. Or does it?
