Garret Lewis: Enemy of the Blog

It has come to our attention that NewsTalk 1230's own Garret Lewis (he of the "All You Can Eat" Counter Protest to Cindi Sheehan) has decided to call our newest BearBacker, Wendy (who Does Waco) a feminist and sexist. While we might normally shrug this off as another shining example of his "independent" analysis providing Wacoans with "fair and balanced" coverage of local events, it was made in the context of a 20 minute rant disparaging Cameron Park as unsafe, criticizing the improvements planned for the park as a waste of "my property taxes." Similarly, Garret kept insisting that Cameron Park was unsafe for families.

Garret Lewis: "My views on life in Central Texas are piped in from FoxNews HQ in NYC, but I am a political 'independent' of course. Just like Sean Hannity."

This is hardly true. Have you ever been to the park, Garret? Probably not, because you are too busy reading Ann Coulter's latest drivel to have set foot in the most beautiful municipal park in Central Texas. While your conservative views may endear you to a few Wacoans, your East Coast "I know what's best for you simpletons" attitude has got to go. I don't know how they do things in Long Island, NY, where you hail from, but here we take pride in our public places and try to keep them from falling into disrepair. Maybe next time you have some time in between reading the memorandum from FoxNews Corporation on how to give your analysis the needed conservative slant, you should set foot in our beautiful park.

A Scene From Garret Lewis' Tax Burden

Now, why don't you whine some more about your property taxes, especially since they pay for the local schools. Since you and your wife don't have children, doesn't it stand to reason that you shouldn't have to pay those taxes? Perhaps you can claim an exemption next time McLennan County asks you to ante up. We could call it the "My Taxes Should Only Go to Things That Benefit Me" Exemption. Or better yet, the "Back in New York, we had to pay all kinds of taxes, but now that I'm here in Central Texas, I shouldn't have to pay any to support my adopted city's greatest natural asset" Exemption.

Pipe down re: Cameron Park, or we will bring all our resources to bear on discrediting your dog and pony show. Do not make fun of Wendy again. She is our friend.

  • Sounds like Garret sounded the old "Dumbass" alarm in the ALICO this morning. Typical bull shit from a out-of-town "shock jock" who doesn't care a lick for Waco.

  • Garret Lewis makes me miss the days of the Rush Limbaugh listening parties at Poppa Rollo's.

    Can I get extra Hypocrisy on that pie? And don't skimp on the ranch, college boy!

  • Talk about your loud-mouth ass hole - Garret is a know-nothing SOB who thinks he's got everything figured out just because he's read everything written by Bill O'Reilly.

  • People like Garret are giving our fair city a bad name. Thanks, BearMeat, for taking him to task. Also, thank you for your bizarre campaign contribution of 30 Pieces of Silver.

  • I am conservative and I enjoy listening to Rush Limbaugh--but I still think Garret Lewis is an arrogant, annoying, brain-dead idiot. He seems to really believe that he will be the next big thing in talk radio, but the guy has absolutely no talent. Listening to the banter of customers in line at the grocery store is more entertaining than putting up with this guy.

  • This Guy is a bully and very insecure...I have never heard his show and never will but after hearing about him at the salon today I had to respond. I Have Met Eli Ross from kwtx at the local starbucks and he is a great young man. Very smart and honestly the best thing KWTX has going for them. He is way ahead of his game in Waco , maybe that is where This Lewis person's problem start... a little insecure Radio boy... do people reconize YOU on the street... I THINK NOT. Your just a jealous little boy who gives that news reporter a lot of attention when you talk about him... you look like Kermit by the way...

  • An assumption you say... you are assuming that Eli Ross said something about you so you spent countless minutes of a usually good morning show making fun of him?? Why again?? You "think" he said something about you? Is it mean you asked??? Yes it is. Be a man... email him yourself and find out what was said... I am pretty sure he has no idea what you look like , so WHY would he run from you... are you ASSUMING that he is afraind of you?? I think its funny how you attack him and his voice. You seem like your a little more mature than this... maybe there was nothing else going on in the world. I know I won't listen to your show if you use his voice in mockery...

  • Actually, Garret coming to town has been one of the best things Waco has ever had happen to it.
    Sure he is provocative, and sure he has a different perspective than yours. That is why his show is needed to balance the "stick in the mud", ass backward thinking of well meaning, but hopelessly lost folks like you.
    Face it, Waco is changing, and if we want to actually change FOR THE BETTER, perhaps we need the perspectives of "out of towners" like Garret.
    Or, we can of course do what we usually do, and continue to wallow around in our own mess while blaming those "damned out of towners" for all our problems.

    Grow up people.

  • Give 'em hell Garrett. Waco had a bad reputation long before Garrett came to town. Witness the billboards concerning Waco being #7 in crime. Garrett did not cause the crime. At least now Waco has something truthful to brag about.
