The Honolulu Agonizer – Burl Burlingame

For those of you who know the scoops… you know the scoops on the Newspaper War that happened and is still pretty much happening on Oahu.

For those of you don’t… well I’m not gonna go into it too much because it’s not really my story to tell.

So much that he dislikes the advertiser, that he now has his own site that parodies the name “The Honolulu Agonizer

agonizer

I’ve added his “Blog” or to the Oahu section of my blogroll.

He’s got access to much of the pictures that the Star-Bulletin has covered over the years.  Well he had access until Gannett snatched up the majority of the collection, but that’s a whole nother story for him to tell you.

Here’s a picture he posted of Star-Bulletin from 1920’s:

Here’s a promotional ad for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin when the paper was riding high in the 1920s. The irony is that the circulation was far, far less then than it is now… Burl Burlingame on “Better Days at the Star-Bulletin“.
