Blatherwatch: Webb Assaults Photographer in Courtroom





*** UPDATE BELOW ***

Former ultraliberal KIRO-AM / Seattle talk host Mike Webb has somehow managed to grab the headlines, once again!

According to lefty talk radio blogger Michael Hood at Blatherwatch, Webb allegedly assaulted a photographer upon entering the King County Courthouse today to face insurance fraud charges.

Hood, a longtime area reporter and critic, says he witnessed the attack.

What a scoop, Michael!

Meanwhile, Webb has now posted his side of the story, here. And Orbusmax has more coverage here.


Webb, an unapologetic supporter of extremist Rep Jim McDermott (D-Seattle), once used his radio program to call for President Bush's execution on "war crimes" charges. In addition, he also accused a Seattle police officer of assaulting him while visiting the Queen Anne Dick's Drive-In.

The talker also has a long history of refusing to allow his picture to be taken, which might shed some light on this alleged attack.

For more background on Webb, see Geov Parrish's recent Seattle Weekly cover story on the talk host's notorious antics. In addition, we'll most likely see further updates from Blatherwatch shortly.

There's really no joy to be taken from Webb's ongoing downfall. It's now clear his state of mind has not improved in recent months. Before things get even worse, will Mike finally recognize the severity of his problem?

UPDATE: Orbusmax says:

FROM ORBUSMAX, 6:45 P.M. PACIFIC: IF THIS HAD BEEN A RIGHT-WING TALK SHOW HOST FROM KVI OR KTTH, THE SEATTLE MAINSTREAM MEDIA WOULD HAVE BEEN TRIPPING ALL OVER THEMSELVES, TRYING TO BE FIRST TO SPLASH BREAKING NEWS STORIES ON THEIR WEBSITES, AND NEWSCASTS... BUT SINCE IT'S A LIBERAL... 8 HOURS LATER, NOT A PEEP FROM ANY OF THEM...


UPDATE: Blatherwatch has now posted his full account of what happened in the courthouse. Both Seattle papers somehow missed or ignored the story today. Are they protecting Webb?

Meanwhile, Webb, managing to do a webcast last night, apparently used the program for tirades against Blatherwatch, the Radio Equalizer and anyone else who dared to report on his latest out- of- control behavior. No matter what Mike does, it's always somebody else's fault. Why isn't he in jail right now?

  • Pansy-ass lib, Mike Webb shows his batshit crazy lib, unhinged tendencies in a court of law, and Brian's website is the only place you hear about it?! What if he just returned from week-long vacation in Pyongyang and was caught with Viagra in his hemp napsack, would that be enought to make the mainstream outlets?!
