so I look out my window and see a yellow chopper buzzing around...must be Wendy's..the Queen of Yellow Journalism
the News-Press knuckleheads like to fancy themselves gov't watchdogs...well that's fine but who watches the newspapers? the non-profits? the private sector? the bloggers, that's who..the only independent voices out there..nobody owns us bloggers!!
I know that the News-Press lies like a dog most of the time so I need to keep an eye on them as they try to piss on public workers...not on my watch, Wendy and Nipper..
and Nipper! would he have a Food Show and a Radio Show without Wendy's financial help? no..and he gets free publicity in her paper and lists himself as co-publisher...how many conflicts of interest there?? too many.
so now I see that Scott Steepleton is claiming the News-Press wins the "top breaking news" award... from the Newspaper Publishers Association....the more you pay, the more awards you get..did the NP get any awards for claiming some folks on the front page were doing something "illegal" for being at the DMV a few monts ago? no
and what about my old pal Peter Lance..how many Emmys did he win for all his investigatative series in the News-Press? NONE!!
so the News-Press is of course a sham and shame to those who support it...anybody can be bought and all these little NP sychophants are bought..
and then there's Scott Steeplton's attempt to discredit the fire dept folks who fought the fire in Montecito that killed an old lady..this is crazy ...trying to blow smoke up everyone's ass is Scott Steepleton's specialty...blaming the fire dept for a slow response that killed the old gal!!
ok.. so according to Scott..the fire dept was called in at 7:26 am and the fire crew got to the fire at 7:34...then Scott claims the News-Press was at the fire scene before the fire crews so I'm thinking that maybe Scott started the fire since he knew so much about the old lady and her deceased husband, Milton Schmerzler who created a nonprofit foundation years ago for disabled adults...
so Scott interjects all sorts of conspiracy theories-anti- fire dept- to explain why the local Fire Dept just let this poor 88- year old woman die! well Carp, Summerland and Montecito have fire districts not controlled by gov't...
but if you want to speculate maybe after 88 years, lady wanted to die...maybe it was suicide by fire...maybe her kids started the fire for the inheritance...
maybe it was an accident...where was the fire alarm? dead batteries?? and what about the neighbors? Scott praised them for using hoses but the call came in from a passing motorist..why didn't the neighbors call the Fire Dept..the professionals, to fight the fire instead of trying to fight it themselves with 60 psi hoses..
that's not enough pressure to wash a sidewalk let alone put out a house fire..Steepleton is an idiot..you should read it because it is pure yellow journalism and just downright silly...
so the conclusion I reach is the neighbors killed the old lady..
