This was very reminicent of my own battle with Mitch back in the WKRK days, which you can hear here. In true Mitch form he tried to filibuster and run but to Beckmann's credit he wasn't having any of it. He forced Mitch to stick around and have a great give and take over Mitch's lack of transparency regarding his own advocacy of the Michigan film take credit. Frank did a great job of making sure Mitch was accountable.
The bottom line, Mitch has a credibility issue, nobody believes a word he says because of his fake column about Michigan State a few years ago. That is exactly why Mitch should have been fired from the Free Press, he lacks serious credibility. The irony is unbelievable as Mitch attempts to create credibility. Why wasn't he this throughout when he was fabricating a column about Michigan State basketball. Bottom line, Mitch is forced into this position because of his past lack of honesty.
Listen here, it is awesome audio. Great work Frank!
