BUSY, BUSY, BUSY?
This afternoon, I tried to fax in a Right-to-Know request to the City of Lancaster to see if MAW Communications has been making their monthly payments on the $1,500,000 loan the city gave them. The number I had did not work so I called the city and was told the new fax number is 717-291-4796. That number remained busy for the rest of the afternoon.
I will try again tomorrow and if I cannot get through I will call the Pennsylvania Office of Open Records and let them know that the city is breaking the law.
AUGUST 19 UPDATE
Hey, ace LNP reporter Dan Nephin, why don’t you tell us when Patrick Hopkins was on “the sh*t end of ‘the media’ stick.”
[Editor’s note: Correction – Yesterday I stated Dan had been married to his wife for over 15 years. That is not correct. It is actually 27 years. According to the Prothonotary’s Office, they were married on October 3, 1992.]
— To be continued tomorrow… —
** LNP reporter Dan Nephin’s response to Patrick Hopkins comment on Nephin’s Facebook page is below. It so annoys and angers me that I will come back to this later when I can see straight.
MAYBE THEY CAN’T AFFORD IT!
Lancaster City’s Business Administrator posting on LNP reporter Dan Nephin’s Facebook page.
* Oh, that is so special! LNP has protected and treated lying Patrick Hopkins very well over all these years. Oh, and Nephin’s ridiculous response is coming.
[Editors note: Shades of former LNP reporter Tom Knapp who is now happily remarried – when someone’s Facebook relationship goes from “married” to “it’s complicated” – it makes one wonder. Well, with Nephin it’s pretty damn easy. He filed for divorce from his wife of over fifteen years five days before last Christmas. That’s right – on December 20, 2019. I, of course, have a theory which I will not share at this time.]
CASSIDY: A LIAR & HYPOCRITE
From yesterday’s LNP editorial, “Struggling cities need more help, including direct federal aid in next COVID-19 stimulus,” (click here).
“This editorial board?” You, Suzanne Cassidy, are the LNP “editorial board.” Chris Otto has the title “deputy opinion editor” but he was the sports editor before moving to opinion so I give him no credence. The community members don’t count. How often do you meet with them? They have no power whatsoever.
So Lancaster County is left with Suzanne Cassidy’s opinion every single day. And this woman is a proven liar and hypocrite who breaks every journalism code of ethics in this country and validates President Trump’s tirades against the “dishonest” press.
Lancaster is “struggling” because of LNP and their for-profit, off the tax-rolls Marriott Hotel. Why don’t you talk about that, Cassidy?
Please check back later today.
