Bad news for former SE

    Hope this isn't a DB. Jim Cnockaert pleads not guilty to child pornography charges.

    I'm just wondering how Jim got a job in Virginia after being canned from Bozeman.

    Don't know the guy at all, but if you read this thread I'm sure you can figure out how he was hired so quickly:


    Also, the article said he admitted to viewing pornography, not child porn at work. So, my guess is the Virginia paper didn't know why he had been fired from Bozeman, just that he had been fired.

    I hope this doesn't hurt some of the kick ass, hard working people I know there.

    Yikes. The Bristol paper sure has been through a lot of drama the last couple years.

    Wasn't he also fired from Ann Arbor right in the middle of football season (when he was the Michigan football beat writer)?
  7. I don't understand your post?
    Why are you saying he would have been hired so quickly? Bristol sounds like a good job, from reading that thread.

    If you follow the link to the previous thread, Bristol had a guy lined up to take the SE job and he backed out literally the night before his start date. So with a NASCAR race and football season upon them, they were in scrambling mode and probably didn't do their due diligence before they hired Cnockaert.

    I think he meant that Bristol had waited a LONG time to fill that job and couldn't wait any longer, so they made the hire. I could be wrong, but I think that's what he meant.
  10. Ok.
    I was reading that thread, not all of it, and nobody had anything bad to say about the place, so I was wondering WTF.
