Upstart Competitor Falls: Irving Media Domination

In response to:

Carleton Free Press closing down
Anonymous - CBC New Brunswick
October 27, 2008

The Carleton Free Press is shutting down almost a year after the upstart weekly newspaper first launched to take on the Irving-owned Woodstock Bugle-Observer.

Bob Rupert, editor of the weekly newspaper, said the economic downturn, combined with the pricing competition from the Bugle, was too much to overcome.

"All of this sort of converged and finally, today, just 20 minutes ago, we got together and decided that we had no choice," Rupert told the CBC on Monday afternoon.

Great, now Irving's competition amounts to a Camera- and Toothless-CBC, a smattering of bloggers and some student journalists.

Wouldn't J.D. and K.C. be proud?

Now the current batch of tax dodgers can head off for Bermuda for the winter and not worry about any unmanaged press back 'home',

I noticed that you did not respond to my email to the Gypsy about his blog about this nonsense. Afterall as ablogger he was the first to break the news about his own news rag before the CBC did so. Instead you waited and posted the CBC bullshit and put your spin on that. Homecome Danny Boy? Could it be because you are still a big fan of Chucky Leblanc's and just wish that I would crawl away and die? I promise to do so soon but right now I am feeling too mean to die.

As far as the latest news rag to die the simple truth is that the Carleton "Not so Free Press" did its job and helped Harper get re-elected. There was quite simply no need for the Neo Cons to waste anymore money in "The Place to BE"

Harper does not need Maritime support as he confessed to Danny Boy Millions. Furthermore everybody knows Shawny Baby Graham will win a second term and by that time the Neo Cons no doubt will have the control they want over Canada anyway because the chickenshit liberals have already been nutted on the federal level.

I was so pissed today about other things I decided for shits and giggles to see if I could spill a little blogger blood in the street as well. Why not Maritimers enjoy a good scrap EH Danny Boy?

I have heard through the grapevine too many times all the BULLSHIT that that your blogger buddy Chucky Leblanc has been saying about me around Fat Fred City for years. Tis high time for a little showdown. So obviously I called out the Gypsy first because he may be ethical. As he cries in his beer tonight about his job loss today I will lay odds he is cursing me but wondering as to whether or not to make a deal before i possibly make the shit hit the fan all by myself.

For the blogger record if his nasty little paper and their fat dumb and happy lawyer Mockler in Fat Fred City had sided with me against the crooks in KPMG it would be the Irvings they would be crying the blues today.

That crook, David Alward and all his bullshit in CBC makes me and Werner want to puke and fart in his general direction. But this comment in your blog will have to do for now. As you well know I am kinda busy playing hard ball politicking South of the 49th. The nonsense in "The Place to Be" will have to wait for awhile. N'esy Pas?

Can ya tell I am getting pissed off more than usual? At least the RCMP/GRC have been leaving me alone lately. Methinks it is because they have no idea who their new boss in the USA will be EH?

Byway of your clue in your blog today my best guess is "The Gypsy" is you, Anthony Cooper.

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong about the Gypsy's true ID but
you should not deny that I have contacted your newspapaer and its
lawyer Mr. Mockler many times and I did give Anthony Cooper the
courtesy of a phone call today and left a voicemail before sending you
and "The Gypsy" this email correct?

Many bloggers and your friends Chucky Leblanc and "the Spinks" in
particular have had great fun torturing me at my family's expense over the years. It is high time for a little pay back.. EH?

Here is just one example of Chucly Leblanc''s malevolent work.

http://charlesotherpersonality.blogspot.com/2008/07/david-amos-picked-up-by-rcmp.html

In my humble opinion for what it is worth this is a pretty good piece of work. No shit.

http://gypsy-novel.blogspot.com/

I truly do thank "The Gypsy" for allowing my comments to stand the
test of time in his blog and the proof of the pudding is in the fact
that I sang his praises to John McCain legal dept yesterday. (Scoll
down). Perhaps the Gypsy and I should have a long talk about the
malice of other bloggers now. I truly believe "The Gypsy" will enjoy the conversation whether or not you are Mr. Cooper. Perhaps we can make a deal. No one can deny that I am in dire need of an editor but "The Gypsy" and Danny Boy Fitsgerald do swear more than I do on the Internet no matter what Chucky and his "Blogger General" may falsely claim. N'esy Pas? (I changed my style too many were copying it while pretending to be me as they attacked others)

P.S. As per my style of blogging I will merely record this email here

http://davidamos.blogspot.com/2005/03/ides-of-march.html

As always I allow people to attack me all they wish as long as they
don't slander my wife and kids. Unlike many of your far from ethical fellow Maritime bloggers such as T.J. Burke. Chucky Leblanc and the Spinks I do believe in unmoderated Free Speech.

Blood in the street

There's a casualty at last in Carleton County's newspaper war.

The Carleton FreePress will announce in their paper tomorrow that they are finished publishing, effective now, dead, gone. Soon to be forgotten.

How do I know this? Let's just say it's because I've been working
there this past year. yes, right form the first paper to the last.

Twas a good year, my friends, and a good experience.

It really was. And it was a good little paper.

Tonight, I will raise a glass to thee. The Little Paper that Couldn't.

David Raymond Amos has left a new comment on the post "Blood in the street":

I kinda figured that you were some sort of insider Gypsy. If you
bother to notice within the email exchange with a nasty Yankee blogger I sang you a little praise as well as Danny Boy Fitzgerald for being ethical enough to allow my words to stand the test of time.

Now that you are soon to be out of work, perhaps you should consider
writng another book. There is lots of fodder to consider within this
particular email and only bloggers have reported the recent doings
between the questionable Professor Fried and the far from ethical John
McCain legal dept. Pounce on it Gypsy with my blessings and thanks

Call me (506 756 8687)and I will be happy to explain this email to ya. It is pure hell in a handbasket for bankers and politcians etc just
prior to the big election south of the 49th.

So much for the Integrity of most bloggers eh Danny Boy?

Now the dumb bastard wants to pretend that he does know who or what he was bitching about? nobody is that dumb but clearly many arseholes are that nasty eh?

Right David, but that's why you should start up a blog of your own,
post it there and then link to it from our site in our comments
section. Plus, it's just bad form to post emails with a bunch of
details like that.

In the future, please follow the guidelines I set out in my response.

So much for free speech even in the blogs EH Yankee? I am not quite
giving up telling people something they don't want to know even though
they yap about it anyway. It is true I am writing a book and part of it is about bloggers and the malevolent Spin Doctors in particular. I confess I was a little long winded in the email in your blog but there was a lot to say about the topic to Professor Fried but it was far from book form and to spare your readers too much info I provided the links to many other words just as other bloggers do.

FYI the links were very necessary to support what I say is true
otherwise I would seem to be just another noname bullshitter like all
the rest who post slanderous comments against the "Powers that Be" Correct? Furthermore one should never underestimate the fury of a powerful well connected Yankee lawyer or a pissed off Maritimer who never had any false hope of ever being elected either.

Your spam filter may have blocked my words but they certainly were not a malicious comment and right on topic and it was you who had the
ultimate decision as to whether I was a liar or not I might add.
However it is your blog to do with what you will and your newfound
info about the words you copied from another blog and put your spin on will be posted elsewhere. I will bother you no more. Rest assured others will find it interesting even if you do not. I just wish ordinary folks would sit up and pay attention. Tis all.

For the record I was only remaining true to my words within the email to Professor Fried. I had told everyone in that email that I would be posting the email in the comments of your blog amongst others. I just happen to gave you the first kick at the can because some of your blogger had banished me from their blogs years ago when Howard Dean was trying hard to be nominated as the democrat's presidential dude in
2003 and I ran for a seat in Parlaiment the first time.

FYI I will continue to do as I said but with a twist I will post this email to you and other bloggers in other people's blogs that you do not know beginning within the comments of one of my old blogs first. Google some of the words within this email if ya care to check my work someday. The Neo Con and liberal lawyers who receive this email can begin quest right here.

http://davidamos.blogspot.com/2006/04/just-dave_22.html

BTW Justin many Interesting dudes do read my words quite often however as I said not many ordinary folks do the same because most bloggers on the internet block me on a daily basis and try hard to pretend that I do not exist. I do know the reason why it is based in fear and greed.
In fact only a precious few bloggers have had the sand to allow my words to stand the test of time unedited. Two that I have the most respect for are the Maritimers known as the Gypsy and Dan Fitzgerald. Interesting that only one has the balls to have a name EH?

To support what I say is true, here is just a couple of recent
examples of a fine and fancy dudes checking a simple pigheaded
Maritimer's work within a rather strange blog. I use it to store the
text of letters and emails such as this and allow all comment to stand
unedited (except when the bastards slander my minor children) because
I do believe in free speech.

Now let me ask you a simple question Justin. If the smiling bastards in the Privy Council Office and the current Solicitor General of Canada are so concerned to read in French and English about what I am saying about the former Solicitor Generals of the USA prior to a very important election South of the 49th and immediately after ours is
over up here . Shouldn't YOU at least try to read and click on the god damned links to see if I am a liar or not?

Feel free to post your response in my blog with all the links you wish.

David, you can't post a novel in the comments section with all those
links. My spam filter caught it and I'm not going to publish it.

If you want to publish the comment at a blog and then link to it from
here, that's fine.

OR you can do a quick summary of what you said without all the links.

In a nutshell I was questioning the integrity of McCain's Legal Dept and stress testing Professor Fried's ethics and knowledge about my lawsuits versus the US Treasury Dept and many others six years ago.
Politicking is always about the money or as Jimmy Carville loved to
say ITS THE ECOMOMY STUPID.

Perhaps you should read your email now EH?

Etc etc etc

For the record, the FreePress was no rag..(Mr. Amos).

I'm glad there are folks out there who cared enough about it to give it a mention.
