Allergies Abound and The Donald’s Generals: Top of the hour news for a Wednesday. 9/7/16

The story about Benghazi Hill’s coughing spells and health in general continues. Is it a tale of conspiracy or is there something to be concerned about? DAP, this is Broken Road Radio news at the top of the hour. The best parts of the footage coming off the press part of the plane is when the candidate leaves. That’s when people talk openly and that’s when we get the tidbits. One reporter, supposedly the guy holding the camera said in yesterday’s Fox feed, “do you think I’ve still got the camera running?” The beginning of the feed has Benghazi Hill coughing a lot. Then she walks to the front of the plane and the flight attendant announces that everybody should turn off all devices and prepare to land but the media folk keep chatting amongst themselves, having a good time, passing the pretzels, sharing complimentary cocktails. Later in the feed, Hill strolls back, seems to be more relaxed and said the coughing is not a problem, she has seasonal allergies, even her doctor says so, and she remembers now that she coughed a lot last September. That should be something someone could check up on, if its worth finding another Hill tall tale. Let’s see. Last September. September 2015. Hmmm. Fundraisers in Hollywood. Some in Iowa. An interview with Lena Dunham. And a chat on UNI in northern Iowa about sexual assault. Nope, no coughing then. Must have been a good year. Too many questions yet. Can’t seasonal allergies be treated? Pseudoephedrine-enhanced meds do it for me. I prefer the 12 hour box of 20. Does this mean I could get a sponsorship for the drug plug? Hope it helps, BH.

The Donald’s campaign has released the names of 88 former and retired military leaders who like him for the big job. The Daily Beast has called them ‘disgraced generals’ and says sprinkled among the Vietnam Vets, three four-star generals and an admiral and other key commanders in the Iraq War are four from the Tailhook groping scandal in Vegas. Many of the others have said the military is weaker because of Barack the First and Benghazi Hill, plus budget cuts have hurt the military, plus one works for Fox News as a commentator. In other words, they’re conservative.

Speaking of the military, a recent NBC poll has The Donald up by 19 among veterans. But that was Monday so who knows today. It could be higher. If it happens in the world, its news to us.

Think Demosthenes, the guy with the lantern looking for truth and an honest man. And its tough. Lots of challenges, lots of anguish, lots of pain, lots of disappointments, but I get weekends off and all the ranting time I want. Most of my background is in media, mostly radio, mostly small and medium sized towns up and down the dial. And I wouldn't change a minute of what I've done and where I've been.
