The Real Mike Hudson

16 Nov

You might remember our friend Mike Hudson, Editor of The Niagara Falls Reporter, author and wannabe mafioso.  He was a frequent commenter here at WNYMedia until he became so incredibly abusive and hostile to other readers that we had to ban him from the website.  Mike is well-known for his love of the drink and his, umm, colorful language.

After being dealt with here and after persistent scandals regarding his involvement with Steve Pigeon and other unsavory local political characters, Hudson seemingly disappeared from our view.  Well, Mike resurfaced in all his drunken glory on something called the Niagara Broadcast Network, which appears to be some sort of horrible imitation of an online radio talk show.

Hudson showed up drunk (tall boy in hand) and proceeded to set a new low, even for himself.  He’s like a sad combination of Morris Buttermaker and Ben Sanderson.  During his appearance, he told Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster to blow him, claimed to be a vampire, threatened to shoot his co-host in the face, spit on the floor, called some guy a dago/guinea, and sought to ejaculate into a coffee cup.


Good times.

Next time you read a “scoop” in Hudson’s weekly flyer, remember this video.

    Quite obviously, Hudson’s taking a page from the Paladino-Republican playbooks. Metaphorically, of course. Or maybe not.

    I liked it better when his drunkenness produced incisive writing such as this.  I’ll bet the Gazette never published THAT bombshell.

    Mike Hudson really said “if you’re a professional, you can take it”

    Foster Brooks called….he wants his schtick back.

    I like Mike’s new career path….the sole member of a third-rate Wack Pack.

    Come to think of it, why give publicity to the worst people? I know some boorish slobs. They LOVE the publicity ,

    He sounds like Hank the Angry Dwarf minus the good looks.

    Totally disgusting. If this was the editor of the Niagara Gazette or the Buffalo News they would be fired. Why do we put up with such low lifes in Niagara County?

    What’s sad here is not that this punk rock pansy is sliding back into the toilet, but that he’s disgracing the image of the local media in doing so. Our system of government, nationally and locally, is dependent on a vibrant and vigilant fourth estate to keep it in check. When the recklessness and irresponsibility is perceived to be behind not a politician’s desk, but an editor’s, we suffer as a free and informed people.

    This guy is a disgrace. Plan and simple. Kudos also go out to Frank Croisdale and his Niagara Rises for giving this clown an award for whatever it is he brings to the city and pointing out that this video is out there. Then again he did get the Niagara Falls mentioned nationally Comedy Central.

    Croisdale actually called attention to the performance, while claiming to be this mans friend and co-employee.
