I wonder where he got his information from?

Enquiring minds would like to know.

there's no way it was Begnaud. There was too much information on the golden-oldie days of television and radio in shreveport. that would require fact-checking and information-gathering--- a couple of talents not in Begnaud's arsenal. my two cents? the late-great Tim Greening with his "girl" filling in after his passing.

Now I know why the comment about him paying for stories was removed so fast!

My understanding is that he would pay the person who was being interviewed for a story to NOT talk to other stations.

Anyone thinking Begnaud was the force behind Marshall Fannin Blogsite is delusional...as you have to consider that MF was up and running before Begnaud was in town. So how would he know some of the local nuances so well? Sorry it just don't wash.

Here's a more likely scenario given that the MF site's disappearance coincided with Begnaud's departure to Sacramento.

There was a lot of info posted about some questionable reporting methods by Begnaud. These allegations weren't too pretty as they described some pretty downright unethical behaviors that might bite someone later on should prospective employers do a "websearch" on prospective employees...even those undergoing probationary period.

Soooo...let's say Begnaud's alleged practices in Shrevesburg got noticed by his bosses in Sacramento. This wouldn't be good for future promotions now would it?
So...let's say the boy-wonder sent an e-mail to the MF webblog owner saying that he better take such slanderous drivel off the site otherwise he might get a legal inquiry from retained counsel.

Hey even if such allegations were true...the MF website owner probably felt this wouldn't be worth the hassle as he has his own best interests to protect with his "day job" and who needs to undergo the scrutiny and hassle of the "discovery" portion of a legal issue. So...the path of least resistance was considered and taken and boom...the MF blogsite was history without so much of an explanation.

Seriously... Begnaud behind the curtain...lol...you gotta be kidding! this guy had too much on his plate to be bothered with all his day job and pageant MCeeing...

get real folks...use some deductive reasoning once in a blue...willya?
