Capello Plays The Big Heavy

Craig Smith's Blog reported today that McCaw and Company lawyer Barry Capello has sent a letter to local lawyers suggesting their support of The Organized is "pecuniary and personal". An assertion that of course could be redirected back towards Capello -- especially the pecuniary part. The letter goes on to state that once the News-Press side of the story is aired -- we will all understand. Forgive me if I am wrong, but they have had plenty of chance to tell their story. As Craig points out McCaw is "one of those rare individuals who buys printer's ink by the barrel, so just what is keeping her from presenting "the News-Press' side of the story?".

Why does it take so long for the News Press side?
Could it be their are still trying to find it ?
Seems to me they are looking for something that they will never be able to find no matter how hard they look.

So what's with the "BREAKING NEWS" headline about the Teamsters withdrawing NLRB charges?

Even the slightest pretense of a "wall" between the newsroom and News-Press management is now gone. The News-Press is presently running on its website, as "Breaking News," management's press release by its L.A. spokesperson about the NLRB, without any editing or changes whatsoever. Straight from Wendy and Agnes to readers, without even stopping for a byline. A historic moment--never done before.

Teamsters are going to lose this battle. Good! Now we can move on.

More little spin bombs with no examples nor substance dropped into blog comments, yet again?

9:09 -- Why not elaborate? Move on to what? A paper that churns out articles written by robots happily reporting
the ongoing demolition of free speech, the basic rights of workers, local businesses, and quality of life for the near-extinct Santa Barbara middle-class?

Editorials on how Montecitan celebrities' rights are under attack?

Sir Wrongous Wayous (or the robot that replaces him) pontificating on how good and righteous it is that Her Royal and Holy Highness is going to host benefit after benefit for the celebrities whose rights have been violated by weed whackers and City Council meeting recaps?

Front page stories about fundraisers for the poor diamond-encrusted souls that were left so emotionally scarred by the various violations of their privacy that they need to spend millions beyond what they have -- in therapy and drugs (perscription and otherwise)?

Please, 9:09, tell me what we have to look forward to!
