Stupidity Should be Painful!

New Baltimore democrat candidates steal campaign signs, they harass elderly widows, now their flagship rag refuses  to print the interviews of five (5) New Baltimore candidates (Dellisanti, Ruso, van Etten, Russo, and Vadney) opposing the democrat clique (O’Rorke, Angelis, Schrauf, Jordon, Brooks). Catskill-Hudson Newspapers publisher Mark Vinciguerra, Ravena News Herald Editor Melanie Lekocevic, and Catskill-Hudson Newspapers reporter Jessica Mosier have a lot of burning questions to answer to the people of the town of New Baltimore and to the candidates.

 And We Thought all the Stupids were Confined in Town Hall They're Publishing our Newspapers and Writing the Articles, too!

And We Thought all the Stupids were Confined in Town Hall
They’re Publishing our Newspapers and Writing (or failing to write) the Articles, too!

We say this must go to the Greene County Board of Elections for investigation. We say that the people, the voters of the town of New Baltimore have been deprived of due process in the upcoming elections, have been deprived of important information through the negligence or indifference and unprofessionalism of the Catskill-Hudson Newspapers, and its management , publisher Mark Vinciguerra, Ravena News Herald editor Melanie Lekocevic, through the negligence and indifference, the stupidity of Catskill-Hudson newspapers reporter Jessica Mosier! We say the elections in New Baltimore should be postponed until the investigation is completed and the Republican/Conservative/Independence candidates can get equal treatment, fair play, and the people of New Baltimore can get the information they need! This is very serious and could seriously impact the direction the town of New Baltimore takes in the next four years!

We recently asked the question of Why? the Ravena News Herald gave extensive coverage to the New Baltimore democrats running for office and completely ignored the Republican / Conservative / Independence candidates.

Shortly after having posted the article we received several e-mails from the New Baltimore Republican / Conservative / Independence candidates and we’d like to share the information with our readers.

This may have been a stupid — but no innocent — mistake on the part of the Hudson-Catskill Newspapers reporter, Jessica Mosier who was supposed to have done the interviews of the candidates Nick Dellisanti, Jeff Ruso, Shelly van Etten, Sally Russo and Ann Marie Vadney, all running on the Republican / Conservative / Independence ballots. And it seems very bizarre that Ms Mosier managed to do a rather extensive article on the all-woman democrat bunch running for various offices in New Baltimore. How is it humanly possible that Mosier completely overlooked the very popular opposing candidates? But she did. And by her stupidity, Mosier may have done considerable damage to the Republican/Conservative/Independence campaign. Was that the whole idea? That’s a question we all should be asking ourselves right now.

It couldn’t have been just an oversight, not if the Ravena News Herald, the Daily News, and the Greenville Press have any knowledge of what’s going on in their area of coverage. How can they have missed the Republican / Conservative / Independence candidates just a week after they covered and reported on their meet the candidate event? (New Baltimore Republicans strut their stuff)

In fact, on Friday, October 18, 2013, Ravena News Herald editor Melanie Lekocevic writes in her e-mail to one of the candidates:

“I [Melanie Lekocevic] spoke with the editor of the Daily Mail about this. Our New Baltimore reporter, Jessica Mosier, will cover your story. Unfortunately she is away for the weekend and can’t make the Sunday event, but she will contact you next week to do a profile of the candidates. Her story would run in the Daily Mail, the Greene County News and the Ravena News-Herald. Thanks again for keeping us in the loop.”
Melanie.

On November 1, 2013, the day after the extensive coverage of local candidates in Coeymans and of the dems in New Baltimore was published in the Ravena News Herald, that same candidate writes to Lekocevic:

“It is unfortunate that to date our local papers have not provided the citizens in our community with information in regard to the varying  choices and options available to them on election  day.   Having experience in public/community relations I would think that each of you in your role(s) would want to be as bi-partisan as possible and present to the public clear, concise. and researched information on all issues and candidates.”
Well, the candidate may appear a bit naïve in thinking that there would be any fair-play in New Baltimore or Ravena-Coeymans, or that the local rags would be a bit interested in providing the residents and voters with good, complete information, but we tend to share her viewpoint. We think that this is the best example possible of how far and how deep the actual corruption goes in these communities. It’s unbelievable what these people would do to get ahead. But to conspire with a newspaper is just the worst thing yet.
 
If they had any ethics at all, Susan O’Rorke, Janet Angelis, Hillary Schrauf, Diane Jordan, and Janet Brooks would be just as outraged as the rest of us. They’d be shouting FOUL! just as loudly as we are. But they don’t have ethics, so they stay silent, gloating, drooling, thinking that their trickery might just pay off.
 
brainless3Well, that’s what makes them fools. Someone at the Ravena News Herald, the Hudson-Catskill Newspapers, the Johnson Newspaper Corporation is going to have to be held accountable for this obvious scandalous misconduct. The people of the town of New Baltimore should be getting their tar and feathers ready and head to town hall and then to the offices of the Hudson Catskill Newspapers and drag publisher Mark Vinciguerra out for a good flogging.
 

Vinciguerra was the director of circulation at the Albany Times Union, a.k.a. Times Useless and took the position as publisher of the Hudson-Catskill Newspapers in May 2013. As publisher of Hudson-Catskill Newspapers, Vinciguerra oversees the Register-Star and Daily Mail, both dailies, as well as the weekly Chatham Courier, Windham Journal, The Mountain Eagle, Ravena News-Herald and Greene County News. Obviously, Vinciguerra came to Catskill with the fleas he caught at the Times Useless (“You lie down with dogs and you wake up with fleas.”) He brought the same unethical practices of the Times Useless to Catskill, in other words.

Melanie Lekocevic's X-rays are in.

Melanie Lekocevic’s X-rays are in.

 To show just how schizoid this Vinciguerra is, we’d like to take one of his statements that shows how two-faced, or at the very least out-of-contact, misinformed, indifferent he might be:

“I really just want to get immersed in the community and find out as much as I can,” he said. “For me to say that I want to do X, Y or Z I think would be premature. If nothing else, I want to come in with open eyes and open ears.“ You have to have a trusted, reliable news source, and I don’t think that’s changed,” said Vinciguerra. “I think that locally based newspapers and newspaper companies and information providers are most well-positioned of all to succeed into the future.” (Source: Vinciguerra to take reins of Hudson-Catskill Newspapers by Kyle Adams (April 24, 2013))

What a load of mealy mouth crapola! Bullshit! Our question to Mr Vinciguerra is this: Who’s going to get her walking papers for this? Lecekovic or Mosier? And how are you going to compensate the candidates, the people of the town of New Baltimore? We’d like to hear from you Mr Mark Vinciguerra, Ms Melanie Leckecevic, Ms Jessica Mosier! What’s your story going to be on how you missed the bus on such a big story?

New Baltimore voters need to let Mark Vinciguerra and Melanie Lekocevic know how outraged they are. Here is their contact information.

    This is factually incorrect. The following links to a story which profiled the Republican candidates that ran in The News Herald (and on its website) as well as in The Daily Mail (and on its website), as well as in the Greene County News (and its site).

    I’d appreciate in the future, the opportunity to comment PRIOR to having misinformation posted.

    Thank you.

      Dear Mr Vinciguerra:

      First of all, thank you for responding with your comment. We are always appreciative when “public figures” are interested enough to respond.

      Secondly, we do object to your unfounded claim that we published misinformation. We are not the Albany Times Union nor the Ravena News Herald; we are meticulously careful of our wording, proper crediting of quotes and citations, and we check our facts. Coming from the Albany Times Union and now working with the Catskill-Hudson Newspapers, you may not be fully familiar with these procedures, which we voluntarilly implement to avoid misinforming our readership.

      The link you provide as substantiation for your claim of “misinformation” is fully credited by inference in the blog article:

      “It couldn’t have been just an oversight, not if the Ravena News Herald, the Daily News, and the Greenville Press have any knowledge of what’s going on in their area of coverage. How can they have missed the Republican / Conservative / Independence candidates just a week after they covered and reported on their meet the candidate event?”

      Furthermore, the quotation we print from your own Melanie Lekecevic in her response to the candidate reads in pertinent part:

      “I spoke with the editor of the Daily Mail about this. Our New Baltimore reporter, Jessica Mosier, will cover your story. Unfortunately she is away for the weekend and can’t make the Sunday event, but she will contact you next week to do a profile of the candidates. Her story would run in the Daily Mail, the Greene County News and the Ravena News-Herald. Thanks again for keeping us in the loop. Melanie [Lekecevic]”

      That quotation clearly indicates: (1) That Ms Lekecevic was aware of the candidates’ express interest in being profiled, (2) that Ms Lekecevic spoke with one of your editors about the profiles article, (3) that a specific reporter would “contact” [the candidate] “next week,” that is, the week following October 18, 2013, that is, the week of October 21-28, appropriate for a story to appear in the following week, that is, in the October 31 issues of your newspapers, and finally (4) that the profiles stories would run in specific newspapers.

      These facts are absolutely clear from the written record and any conclusions drawn from them and printed in the blog article are unquestionably fact-based, and true. It would therefore appear, Mr Venciguerra, that either you are dyslexic or poorly informed, and that your claim of “misinformation” is misplaced. In fact, the link to the News Herald article reporting on the meet-the-candidates even actually confirms our facts and argues against your claim of misinformation.

      If, however, you have any defense or justification for refusing to publish the profiles of the New Baltimore Republican / Conservative / Independence candidates, or if you have a proposal for mitigating the damage to their campaign and the insult to the voters of the town of New Baltimore, we would cordially invite you to share those points with us as soon as possible.

      Once again, Thank you! for your comment. We shall look forward to hearing your justifications and proposal for curing the damage your staff has caused to the democratic process, the affected candidates’ campaign, and to the voters in the town of New Baltimore.

      Yours very truly,
      The Editor

      P.s. We note with pleasure that you are now following this blog with so many other persons interested in the events in this community. We do urge you to review some of our articles and after having done so, you might want to confer with your editorial and reporter staff, and pose the question why so much of what we factually report, boots on the ground, never finds its way into your newspapers, while so much old news from distant communities stains so much newsprint. Interesting question for a publisher to mull.
