Who remembers this guy?
That would be the infamous Rowdy Rutland Piper. A man who fooled the mainstream media into believing he successfully wrestled and defeated a rabid 80 pound coyote, double the size of a fully formed adult coyote.
The same man who once started a GoFundMe called, “Help Me. Help a family,” to try to get a free backhoe.
Might’ve been the biggest fail ever by the MSM. The guy is a stumbling drunk who got scratched up falling down the stairs. So he made up a story that no rational person could possibly believe and the media fell for it.
Well guess what? The Turtlegram and Gazette not only still has that story up, they’re winning awards for it:

Yup. The guy who pretended to be attacked by a mega-coyote, the biggest ever recorded in the history of wildlife, won the Turtlegram the award for best portrait photo of the year from the New England Newspaper and Press Association.
NENPA is an organization that media outlets pay to be in, and in return they are rewarded with dollar store awards that make them feel like they’re doing a good job. They even gave some to Billy Shaner, who doesn’t even attempt to be a real reporter.

But hey, when you’re working in a dying industry where jobs are getting cut left and right you gotta do something to make you think you’re more valuable than the guy who gets paid to make my coffee.
