WISH-TV has hired former Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi as a consultant/talking head on legal matters.
This is both interesting and disgusting on several fronts.
I certainly don't fault Brizzi for taking this job. His reputation is tarnished in the county Republican Party, and I'm certain that goes for the legal profession as well. Man's gotta eat, right?
But I can fault WISH-TV for this. He's been out of office for all of 13 days, but there are several matters on the horizon that he had a hand in and will likely be asked to comment. He'll be able to control his message exclusively through WISH-TV on matters such as the Officer David Bisard case, and the ongoing federal investigation involving Tim Durham.
I just thought that the media in this town knew better. But they always seem to surprise me.
