  • FINAL UPDATE – UPDATE ** – * HALF-ASSED JOURNALISM!

    Posted on February 12th, 2016 Becky 7 comments

    —  “Jury convicts man of first-degree murder in drive-by shooting death,” PennLive, (click here). 

    —  ” ‘You’re not going to get what you came for’: Manheim schools leader says he’s not quitting,” PennLive with video of Bill Murry’s response to the request for him to resign (click here).

    WHO SHOULD STEP DOWN?

    ***    “Join LNP political reporter Sam Janesch at noon Friday as he discusses the Pennsylvania budget impasse with Republican state Rep. Bryan Cutler and Democratic state Rep. Mike Sturla,” (click here).
         Isn’t that special? LNP has never told you about Sturla’s son, Peter Sturla, and his criminal record because he supports their convention center/Marriott Hotel:
    Sturla1
         And LNP has never told you about the special, preferential treatment given to G. Scott Davis, who shot to death his two-month-old daughter on Christmas Eve, by DA Craig Stedman because he is Representative Bryan Cutler’s brother-in-law (click here):
    Cutler9
         LNP Executive Editor Barbara Hough Roda, Opinion Editor Suzanne Cassidy and Content Editor Tom Murse should step down today!
    ********************************

     Murry14**   LNP is crowing on their website that they “won” last night and praising their coverage (three reporters and a photographer) of the Manheim Township School Board meeting! No, they did not “win!”
         In an unbelievable front page “editorial” this Sunday they demanded that Murry and Frankhouser resign. That did not happen last night!

    LNP: FAIL!

          LNP sent their big guns to the Manheim Township School Board Meeting last night: Opinion Editor Suzanne Cassidy, Investigative Reporter Susan Baldrige and Education Reporter Kara Newhouse. And they lost! Big time!
         Board President Bill Murry did not resign and the Board’s solicitor, Bob Frankhouser, was not fired as LNP demanded in a front page editorial.
         In an absurd Twitter fest last night, these three, coached by LNP’s Content Editor Tom Murse, made absolute fools of themselves and the press.
         Click here for their slanted, front page article, “Manheim Township school board faces mostly hostile crowd of more than 320” and check back later today for when Murry, gasp, used the word “‘half-assed’ in front of children!”

    1. To be honest Bill Murry will Not resign because he owns the Manheim Twp. school board, Also it seems he’s acting just like Gov. Wolf and playing a kid games of it’s My way and not yours to the residents.

    2. I am not defending the Manheim Township School Board. However, they are volunteers and unpaid. LNP will NOT hold public, paid officials accountable! And it is beyond disgusting! Check back later today for examples!

    3. Told ya! Bill Murry can beat down three reporters with his hand tied behind his back and his feet in the fire.

      I’m not saying what happened is right, but Murry loves a fight. And he’s good at it and he’s rich and he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about what the newspaper thinks. People love to hate him but if you want anyone in your corner when you’ve been done wrong, you want Murry.

      And since he’s a builder, I wouldn’t be surprised if he in turn gives the PSP/LNP cartel a lesson in “sunshining” The only problem is, they won’t print a word of it in that big glass house they live in.

      I am torn regarding all of this. But it is fun to see “big guns” go after each other.

      I’ll never forget the story about the sink hole that is on land that Murry owns in Lancaster. In one of the stories, he basically said, hey, keep your kids off my property. If they fall down a sink hole, it’s not my problem.

    4. PS “Half-assed” is church language for him 🙂

    5. Yogi Berra once said….”It’s deja vue all over again”.

      This whole scenario smacks of the witch-hunt that LNP engaged in with our county commissioners who were opposed to the con center/hotel.

      Let’s see….how well did that little venture turn out for county taxpayers???

    6. Bill Murry: “You’re not going to get what you came for”

      LNP Big Guns Reporter: OK.

    7. Slightly off topic.

      You are saying that the police should issue the CCTV footage.

      Live in my country and you get this from the PC old bill
