SUSPENSION OF BELIEF CONTINUES
 
WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO READ, IS THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH ... SO HELP ME GOD!
 
REGARDING TODAY'S
ATLANTIC CITY PRESS
& STAFF WRITER
DEREK HARPER
ARTICLE ABOUT
"FLIER ATTACKS LEVY
ON HIRING LIFEGUARDS"
 
Today, on "Hurley in the Morning" I gave the absolute benefit of the doubt that Press Staff Writer Derek Harper couldn't possibly have known that there were two (2) attack fliers ... One targeting Mayor Langford and one targeting Bob Levy ...
 
I actually believed that Derek Harper wouldn't have ignored the anti-Langford flier, in favor of filing a story about only the anti-Levy flier ...
 
However, much to my disbelief, Harper admitted to me today that he had knowledge and possession of both fliers before he wrote today's story ...
 
I had to ask the basic and most important question ... If you knew about two different fliers ... why did you only report about one?
 
Harper had no real acceptable answer to this question ... He said that he had received the Levy flier first and that he considered the allegation against Levy something that should be covered ... I said that I agreed, but what about the same allegation made about Mayor Langford?
 
 Harper told me that he had questions about the whole thing ... I then asked Harper why did you write the article then, and, I especially emphasized on such a one-way basis?
 
Harper responded by saying that he "didn't like the way this conversation was headed" ... No kidding.
 
Playing this story one-way ... when a reporter had direct knowledge and possession of two different fliers is unimaginable to me ... Additionally, now that we have confirmed that Craig Callaway was actually placed at the Triangle Repo Center making copies of Atlantic City Lifeguard roster photos (the lifeguard photos are a major part of both of the attack fliers) ...
 
This really calls today's Atlantic City Press article into serious question ... I personally advised Harper as to a caller to my radio program (Ron) advising me that he observed Craig Callaway at Triangle Repo Center making copies ... Also, that I have now learned that Callaway was copying Atlantic City Lifeguard photos ...
 
This is one of the most blatant examples of media bias that I have ever been able to actually prove ... I have many times known that there was extreme local media bias at play ... However, to actually be able to prove it ... This is one of the most difficult things to accomplish ... We've done it today!
 
The Mayor Langford campaign should immediately contact, Paul Merkowski, Mary Jane Briant and Charlie Wray ... They have such a legitimate grievance here ...
 
There are even laws about this kind of newspaper print bias ... Editorial opinion ... a writer covering an event and calling it as they see it ... much of this is protected speech and ambiguous ...
 
However, when a reporter has two documents ... nearly identical ... one document attacks one guy ... the second document attacks the other guy ... The pursuit of at least trying to be accurate, fair and balanced must be adhered to ...
 
For today's story to be that only Levy was attacked is outrageous ...
 
I asked Derek Harper ... What about the attack on Mayor Langford? Shouldn't that have at least been revealed to your readership? ... His answer was basically the same as before mentioned ... and he added again that he had real questions about the whole story ...
 
Which we feel is all the more reason that they should have at least provided the reader with both sides of the story ...
 
This is not an effort to simply attack the Atlantic City Press ... This is a serious issue of media bias and it must stop ... This area is in the process of being destroyed by a politically corrupt agenda, that is kicking fairness to the curb on a daily basis. 
 
The Atlantic City Press owes Mayor Langford a major correction/clarification ... If they don't provide one after these demonstrated facts have been proven ... Then, in the final analysis, the question of media bias has really been answered for all of us. 
 
EDITOR'S NOTE: The Atlantic City Press has already told photographers to not allow me to be seen in any photo that they take ... I have no doubt that my revealing the absolute truth on this matter of blatant news coverage bias, will garner me a new and special policy ... That no one will be allowed to even speak with me ... Regardless, I will still always relentlessly pursue the truth ...    
 
Atlantic City Press readers deserved to know today that there were two (almost identical) fliers attacking both Mayor Langford and Bob Levy ... Yet, The Press only chose to report that there was a flier attacking Levy ... This is not right ... and they know it, too ...
 
Let's see what the Atlantic City Press does to clean up this mess ... I have no prediction ... I wouldn't be surprised it they did absolutely nothing whatsoever ... and, I wouldn't be surprised if they fixed this problem ... Which would be such an easy fix ... Just come clean with your paying public and admit that you made a serious mistake in judgement here.
 
Every day The Press includes a statement which says something like: It is never the intention to have bias in their reporting ... Call Paul Merkowski if you detect any bias ...
 
Well, we're calling on you Paul ... There's bias today ... And, we've proven it. 
 
ONE FINAL NOTE OF PROOF ... I HAVE COPIES OF BOTH ATTACK FLIERS ... WHICH WERE FAXED TO ME TODAY BY THE ATLANTIC CITY PRESS ... WITH THE PRESS OF AC/DATE/TIME ETC. ON THE HEADER.  
 
THIS  PROVES BEYOND ALL DOUBT, THAT THE ATLANTIC CITY PRESS HAD COPIES OF BOTH FLIERS! AND MADE A CONSCIENCE  DECISION TO ONLY REPORT ON THE FLIER THAT ATTACKED LEVY.
