NY Crimes
Wow big deal - reporters don't do 100% of what they say and utilize freedom of the press to meet their own agendas. Off with their heads!!
Did everyone think they were more legit then the local bishops??? :roll: :roll:
No prison time for any of the Wall Street Crooks recently (although they did get billion dollar fines) and big slap on the wrist for Martha Stewart BUUUUUUUUT Jayson was going to get indicted for fraud??
Isn't it nice that the NY Slimes didn't press charges. They are so wonderful. They are so righteous that they are now rooting out all the bad-guys from their perfect organization. This is a smokescreen to help everyone forget that they were candy-coated Dixie-chicks during the war. (I read the NY Post now - it does have a few good headlines and the Sports are the best game in town.)
Think of how many people cheat on their taxes, spouses, at work, and in college. Think of all the insider trading, the dot-cons etc. Does it surprise anyone that 27 year-old Jayson would check out the web for some info on a report??
I mean damn how many times how we given a demo and schmooooooooozzzed over the areas that were finished or that didn't really work yet OR kludged up a fix to get a deadline?? I am sure plenty of young reporters are b.s.-ing here and there.
(Forgive me if I sound a bit cynical.) I have been misquoted in papers and had to deal with the vultures from the NY television stations. (Long story short: Was a full-time volunteer social worker after college. The nun I worked with was murdered. Papers and TV wrote and reported whatever they wanted. The TV crews sickened me. We see what they want us to see. Even when we watch interview they sometimes cut out pieces to make the story more interesting or to spin it in a certain direction.
But, that is the way it goes in a free society. I guess it is up to us to see through the rubbish.
 
Can you hear that? That's my theme music. I don't know where it comes from. Check under this tiny ad:
