Cleveland, the media, NatCity and looking for the bogeyman
A friend told me recently that there is a theory up in Cleveland that goes like this... National City was actually doing ok, not great, but certainly not about to fail.. but that its problems all came from a lack of confidence induced by years of bashing by the Cleveland Plain Dealer up there. While I have to believe that is just simply a case of groupthink transference.... listening to the Pittsburgh love-fest on that chat makes me wonder a bit. Seriously, listen to the chat. As much as we have our own version of self-loathing, it's just hard to imagine that any local media person could write/say some of that and risk being seen in public here ever again. Remember what we did with the poor fellow from Denver who made the mistake of dis'ing us.
