Brittany Legacy is a young woman from Worcester who just so happens to be suing the city because she alleges she was unjustly fired from her job working for the City Clerk’s office for supporting the campaign of Michael Gaffney for mayor. After she read our column last week about Worcester Magazine’s Walter Bird shitting on Gaffney for giving quotes to Turtleboy Sports and not WoMog, she decided to reach out to us with some more info on this “legitimate journalist.”
Here’s the background story. Brittany’s father is a board member for the Friends of Newton Hill. This summer Worcester Magazine and the Telegram’s Sean Sutner both ran articles, alleging that FNH was cool with the fact that Ed Augustus was planning on merging the Newton Square tennis courts with the Worcester Tennis Club. They were not in favor of it and no one ever asked him if they were. Yet Walter Bird printed that they were anyway, because he’s a “legitimate journalist” for Worcester’s free magazine that we threw in the trash at Bushel n’ Peck.
Brittany didn’t care for this too much, since her father was being misrepresented in print. So she reached out to him to give him the business. This is what “professionalism” looks like from Worcester Magazine:
Has any “reporter” in the history of the world ever got been more butthurt than Walter Bird? “Don’t ever call my paper corrupt.” “Don’t insult my reporters.” “Stop fucking insulting me.” “Tom called your father, who is obviously a coward.” “Dude, you and your father are a pain in the ass.” Butthurt city dodge, like you read about!!
He can’t get quotes from anyone because no one takes him seriously enough to call him back, so he gets butthurt about it and prints lies instead. And if you don’t call him back he tells you to “grow a set,” because the only way to show you’re a real man is to do an interview for a free magazine that Turtleboy will eventually throw in the Bushel n’ Peck dumpster.
This is basically the same exact thing he did with Gaffney. When Gaffney wouldn’t give him a quote he was in shock.
How could anyone not wanna give him a quote? He’s the legendary Walter Bird – journalist extraordinaire!! Does this look like a guy who isn’t relevant?
Only the most important and relevant journalists write for a free magazine. That guy right there means business!!! He’s even got the notepad ready to go for the 4:00 PM deadline!!!
This was my favorite part:
LOL. Is Walter Bird really a grown ass man who writes for a free magazine? Or is he just a 15 year old girl in disguise? Stop talking about me behind my back? LOL. Hey Walter, welcome to grown up world, where everyone talks shit behind everyone else’s back.
