I tried. I really made a good effort. I attempted to stop following the fraudulent and laughable story that is Kwame M. Kilpatrick and told myself not to get sucked in again. Yesterday, I could not resist it. I read story after story about his “Q and A Session” with the NABJ at the St. Regis Hotel. Why? Why did I waste my precious time with this loser? I am angry and disappointed in me. Once again, the disgraced former Mayor of Detroit tried to play the deflection game and point fingers at everybody but himself. Kilpatrick said he has never stole a dime in his life and says that his case is unfair and that everyone in Detroit blames him for all of their problems. Blah blah blah. Wash, rinse, and repeat.

This is not a blog about Kwame. This piece is about all of us and how we need to close our eyes and cover our ears when this sick individual craves attention. Shame on me and shame on the NABJ and the news media for allowing this man a stage to spew his ridiculous spin. I am kicking myself today.
