Joey Must Have Missed This Lesson in Journalism School
Little Joey continues to stomp his feet up and down in defiant frustration at the Daily Times, completely mystified as to why they will not take up his cause in slandering everyone who dares to stand in the way of his vindictive pursuits. The most common rant that we have been exposed to, both on his website and through repetitive postings on the newspaper’s message boards, has been the publishing of embarrassing personal information about City Council Vice-President Comegys. Joey recently asked incredulously into why the Daily Times would print a story about a Delaware (Joey’s state! Another example he is aware of it’s existence) representative’s son who recently caused a commotion at a local bar. In Little Joey’s mind it is pretty clear that the mention of relationship between the bar patron and the representative should be the same as mentioning legal troubles from years ago for a sitting representative.
Now, I am not an expert on journalism, but it appears pretty obvious to me that Mr. Racial Sensitivity- Little Joey is trying to fit a round hole into a square peg on this one. The most obvious difference to me is that this is a current event that they have deemed worthy of reporting on. This is not something from years ago that would merely embarrass the candidate, but in actual event that will be unfolding throughout the coming weeks. There is also the problem of clarity in that the last name is the same and the location sounds about right for some people to mistakenly believe that it is the representative that caused the hoopla at the bar.
News organizations that print information from the past for sensationalism and controversy are merely tabloids. While the Daily Times clearly lacks intellectual credibility due to the numerous spell check failures, it is not time to throw in the towel on their decency just yet. Joey’s decency on the other hand…
Joey, you want to be considered MSM but cannot even realize the different between news and libelous attacks to further an agenda.
On a related note: Quit referring to yourself as MSM, as it is infuriatingly ignorant. Not that you want to be taken seriously, but for the fact that blogs, even legitimate ones, are not considered mainstream media. Mainstream media utilizes fact-checking and decency, as well as a balanced outlook, none of which your site contains. You sound like a complete ass in your fight to be considered mainstream. The term you are grasping for is- Legitimate News Source. You, like the child in a diaper who throws a temper tantrum in his desire to be considered a “big boy”, have yet to realize that no matter how hard you demand to be considered as such, will not be allowed to designate yourself whatever you desire. Now, you can walk around and tell everybody that you are a “big boy” with your own legitimate blog site, and some people may condescendingly pat you on the head and agree, but that does not make you a “big boy”. You are still a little boy who cannot control his own urges and does not take responsibility for his own actions. Now go get your diaper changed and I will take you to the zoo if you are a good boy. On second thought….
