Conflict of Interest Alert: My Live Talk Show Starts This Weekend

Posted by Alex Falcone on Fri, Jan 18, 2013 at 10:14 AM

Hey, guys. I just wanted to let you know about this gigantic conflict of interest that we're going to have starting this weekend. Tonight and tomorrow night at 9pm, my Conan-style talk show called Late Night Action w/ Alex Falcone is returning for its second season at the Action/Adventure Theater (1050 SE Clinton). The Mercury is sponsoring it, several writers are guests, and my name is on the show so it's a violation of journalist ethics for me to tell you to get your tickets here.

Because of the involvement of the paper, it's impossible for me to write an unbiased review about the show (which runs Fridays and Saturdays through February 9) and how awesome it is, especially the way it focuses on Portland news, celebrities, bands, and comedians.

Consider this your official warning that going to see Late Night Action w/ Alex Falcone this weekend is a total violation of my journalistic ethics. So is this image which shows the our guest schedule:
