But now the incumbent’s friends in the media are trying to silence us as well. I’ve never seen such desperation — from telling employees they can’t have political bumper stickers to this latest — they just want us to shut up. We must be winning!
Yesterday, I was able to post to the Mercury News via disqus. I posted a post on readers letters and a couple of “likes” on posts. Today, as I tried to post, I got this:
The Mercury News seems to be terrified of actual news when it comes to the Sheriff. Not the first time I’ve heard or seen this around town. Our team has had several other reporters around the bay area run scared when they’ve been approached them with some of the things I have. Now they don’t want us to even state our own opinions.
It’s a tragedy how our 4th Branch here in Silicon Valley wants to keep us like mushrooms — in the dark and fed…well, we know what mushrooms thrive in. The entire premise of freedom of the press is based on the right for us to know what our government does and their ability to report it without interference. If they’re too cowardly to report the truth of our political state then they don’t deserve to be in business.
It’s strange that this comes just a handful of days after another organization had a public meltdown, accusing me of bullying because I asked them a few questions about how they could endorse someone based on gender alone and ignore the poor job they’ve done. So, I’ve been well information now by about 8 different people, they are tied to another local media wannabe who is apparently afraid to cover the shenanigans of the sheriff as well for whatever reason.
So, what was that heinous post that I posted at the Mercury News that apparently got me blocked? What horrible information did I possibly impart that they don’t want you to know that led them to slap that red “SILENCE” button next to my name? Here you go, I cut & pasted it from my disqus account — they can’t block it from there.
Post made in response to Cupertino Old Timer and his research regarding the sheriff that apparently got me blocked from the Mercury News:
