Mainstream Media Fails

The Turtlegram And Gazette Won An Award For Picture Of The Year For Rowdy Rutland Piper Who Lied About Being Attacked By 80 Pound Coyote


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.

    Where I have seen that face? Could it be on HBO? Tony Sapprano in the episode with the Russian or Polish house keeper that took care of Tony’s mom. Tony was upset with the housekeeper and took her artificial leg to teach her a lesson. This clown looks like Tony after the housekeeper got her leg back and used it to beat the hell out of Tony for being a piece of shit.

    The Turtlegram is like the Patch. Never a real news story, only snips of them at best

      Hey Kevin, I thought I said no more writing unless it makes white men look bad!

        Wrong Shirely! I didn’t choke on old wrinkly balls to have my orders disobeyed. John said if I do what he says in the Bedroom, then I’m incharge of the Globe. What I said is, I don’t want anymore writing unless it makes white men or people with mental illness (like Kirk Minihan) look bad.

    A buddy of mine in the 80’s was snowmobiling in Maine and got jumped by a full sized wolf. He killed it with his knife. That was a true story , unlike this slob.

    His hands and arms were bitten up pretty bad, but he killed the damn thing. And made it home.

    I like how in both of his bull$hit Gofundme scams he covered all the bases: cockamamie story about how his money got stolen, of course he has a sick relative, and heroism making him more trustworthy than Mother Theresa. Here’s my free Gofundme intro for anyone who wants to borrow it, I just ask for 10% of your take:

    “Hi! I was abducted by aliens and my jerk of a boss fired me for missing a week of work, even though I showed him the burns on my face from their laser beams. Then to make things even worse, my car was stolen yesterday, my cat is on life support, and I think I might have Legionnaires Disease I picked up from the fountain at the Mall. A portion of your kind donation will go towards mehiring a lawyer to file suit against the mall owner so this never happens to anyone else again. Thank you and may God bless you!”

    If you think the T&G is dying come over to my office. I can’t even score a hippie SJW chick with hairy armpits and gray hair anymore. I offer them free Co-Exist bumper stickers and they laugh. I feel like I am letting the turtle park his hot rod in my garage.

      You are, but why do you insist on telling everyone when we already know?
