Let's hope to hell that someone is finally able to put Wendy McCaw on the stand.
Wendy and her Nip Nip, spotted last night at Lucky's, with friends, living the good life.
She should be made to testify, since she has played a personal role in several of the matters for which Ampersand is being prosecuted. She was able to escape in January, but it will be much harder to do in August.
Numerous charges filed against News-Press.Lompoc Recordhttp://www.lompocrecord.com/articles/2007/06/03/news/centralcoast/news05.txt Didn't exactly make the front page of the News-Press.How big would the News-Press play the story if the federal prosecution was against the Independent???
Where are those cell phone shots, Anon 9:48 PM?
sa1 -- you cracked me up but I couldn't print that! The vision was a bit much.
The August 14 hearing should be a gas to watch. Hapless News-Press “management” will walk into the courtroom looking like they’re from the barroom scene in Star Wars I. The Wendynator and the Baron Nippernator should look well-rested, round and tanned as witnesses, being just back from summering and quaffing champagne in Europe aboard the U.S.S. Global Warming. Barry Cappello will ask Travis to lay off the dreams about spotting union leaders lounging outside his apartment at midnight. Millstein will be on the stand answering questions about why he busted into the library meeting. Steepleton, well, who knows – writing a majority of the local news every day has got to get even to him – maybe he’ll stomp some more, maybe he’ll tell the truth instead. The Angel of Death will be hovering, as always. The judge will once again hold off with his fancy words for “lying” until he writes his opinion. It would be a gas to watch if the fumes billowing from the south end of DLG Plaza weren’t so foul and destructive.
It is amazing that the News-Press didn't mention the charges against it at all. Its coverage of the hearing will be equally fascinating, and will no doubt reflect that it is winning regardless of what's actually happening at the hearing, as it did in January.
Today's online edition has a headline proclaiming two union charges have been dropped. The "staff report" adds that no complaints were issued over the papers restatement of its conflict of interest policy or statements made by Barry Cappello.It does not mention at all the charges for which the paper will face prosecution. The story is completely biased in the way it holds the News-Press in a favorable light. Yes, I did say BIASED.I have another bone to pick with the online site. If you go to the Local section on the right side, there is always a clickable link to "Events in the Sacramento area." Last I heard, we do not live in the 916. This is one more indication that the News-Press has lost credibility with the Santa Barara Community.
