4 YEARS AGO
JIM WHELAN
BAILED OUT OF A
DEBATE WITH LANGFORD
AT THE LAST MOMENT ...
 
... NOW, 4 YEARS
LATER, BOB LEVY
DOES THE SAME THING
 
These guys really do have just one play book in running against Mayor Lorenzo Langford ...
 
Jim Whelan bailed out of a scheduled debate 4 years ago ... and actually blamed Langford as the reason for why he couldn't debate him!
 
It's now four years later ... And, Bob Levy has done  the same exact thing ...
 
We can't help but wonder how does WMGM/WOND really feels?
 
After all, they wore "cheer leading outfits" and raised political "pom poms" for Whelan ... They couldn't have favored Whelan anymore then they did ... Everyone knows this! How did Whelan repay them ... After WMGM/WOND spent a lot of time, effort and money to promote a great debate between Whelan and Langford ... Whelan bailed out on them at the very last minute ... Did they get mad? No! Did they get even? No! They favored Whelan right down to post-election coverage ... When, even after Langford won the election and defeated the 3-term incumbent ... They still made it appear as if Whelan won!
 
Déjà vu? You bet ... Fast forward the clock 4 years ... Bob Levy has now done the same exact thing to WMGM/WOND ... They did it all over again ... numerous ads and effort promoting the great Langford-Levy debate ... This time, it's Levy who left them at the political alter!
 
Their response so far is to continue to shower Levy with cushy coverage and praise ... There has been no criticism about Levy bailing out of a promised debate ... In fact, they are actually making excuses to explain Levy's sudden refusal to honor his commitment ...
 
Look for the cushy Levy treatment to continue today and tonight!
 
It seems as though no matter what Whelan or Levy does to them ... It's like the 1960s cartoon "Krazy Kats and Ignatz" ... They keep pelting WMGM/WOND with embarrassing and painful political "bricks" ... and the unconditional hearts and love just keeps flying over the heads ... They love it! And they love Whelan and Levy ... no matter what! 
 
This is just the latest example ... We have come to the undying conclusion that no matter what Levy does ... They are onboard with him ... No matter what!
