How Many Times Will Turtleboy Be Called Fake News At This SJW “Responsible Journalism” Panel We Weren’t Invited To At Hanover Theater Today?

So the “Coalition Against Bias and Hate” is having a community forum today about “responsible journalism” and “fake news”:

Which is ironic because when you don’t invite someone from Worcester’s Top News Outlet (as voted by the people) then your panel in and of itself is already fake news.

So who is on this panel anyway? Jeremy Shulkin used to work for WoMag, but now it looks like he occasionally works for the Turtlegram. His thoughts on life can be summed up right here:

Supporting kids who turn their graduation into a political spectacle by writing, “No Wall” on their caps. Yup, he’s not blindly biased. Real news.

Then there’s Asima Silva. She was Jim McGovern’s guest at Obama’s final state of the Union. But she is not a member of the media. She appears to be an activist, who spouts the usual PC buzzwords:

She also made headlines in 2013 when she accused her daughter’s teacher of being Islamophobic for “not being called on in class” when she was a student at Wachusett Regional High School:

Asima Silva, whose daughter, Maimoona, 17, was a student in Honors Chemistry last year, said that Maimoona expressed concerns about how her teacher treated her in class. Mrs. Silva said Maimoona reported not being called on and having a feeling that she did not exist for the teacher.

Then she hired the ACLU and demanded the district hold a diversity training so people will learn not to be Islamophobic.

Once again. A woman who clearly has a specific agenda, is friends with all the right people, and is NOT a member of the media, is a panelist at a “responsible journalism” seminar.

Phillip Martin works for WGBH and is an “investigative reporter.” But as you will see from his tweets, he tends to only investigate news that fits his agenda:

He never investigates fraudulent non-profits, fake hate crimes, or the blatant corruption at Beacon Hill. And when you ignore some news and report other news, then you are fake news.

Agnes Rivera is another “real journalism” panelist. Despite the fact that according to her LinkedIn profile, she’s in marketing:

I guess she works for Telemundo and is a “sought after radio commentator,” whatever that means. She was also one of the people that Mayor Petty referred to as “uneducated friggin morons” when she attended a protest to make Worcester a sanctuary city:

But yea, she’s not biased at all. Real news.

In fairness, the final two panelists – Mark Henderson and Dan Kennedy – are definitely real news. Dan works for WGBH and actually teaches journalism at Northeastern. A quick perusing through this Twitter feed shows that he’s pretty down the middle and unbiased:

Mark Henderson meanwhile is a great guy who runs the Worcester Sun – the only other media outlet in Worcester that can fairly call themselves real news. Former legendary Worcester Mayor Ray Mariano writes for them and wrote this AMAZING column on the Margaret Melican fiasco the other day.

So if you’re keeping track at home, that’s 4 fake news, and 2 real news panelists invited, and no Turtleboy. Sad.

Here’s my question – what’s the over/under on how many times Turtleboy is mentioned at this? I’m putting it at 8.5. Could go under if they refer to it as the “hate blog” as they are so prone to do. It would be fun to set up a buzzword Bingo card with the usual stuff in there – sexism, racism, xenophobia, fake news, alt-right, Trump, hate speech, hate blog, women of color, etc.

Here’s the fact of the matter though – Turtleboy is now and always will be real news. It’s the realest news the people has ever seen. So much shit would go unreported if we did not exist. That’s just a scientific fact and everyone knows it. If you want fake news then you read the Turtlgram, Worcester Magazine, or Trash Live. If you want real news you read Turtleboy.

    Why Henderson calls his rag Worcester Sun is beyond me. Henderson lives in Holden. Just like that other POS Worcester Herald from some guy named Bill Randell who lives in Holden too. Unless the publication is based in Worcester you can’t use the name Worcester.

    And who else lives in Holden, Aide_n K_earny from TB Sports. But at least he don’t use Worcester on his blog.

    A group from the Worcester Tea Party shall be attending this panel. While we are there we shall keep a tally of the number of time TBS is mentioned.

    I am also puzzled as to why the Worcester Tea Party was not invited to be on the panel considering our close ties with many news and watchdog organizations.

    TB must be doing something right if the panel was bothered SO MUCH that TB was a topic of discussion. LOL!

    Those pussies can dish it out but can’t take it. Typical SJW’s.

    Is that the ghost of Chris Farley walking behind the NSA director in the picture on Philip Martin’s June 18 tweet?

    that you weren’t invited should be a badge of honor-pretty easy to see where these folks are coming from
