    When will Gannett suits be sent away for the same crimes?

    Pretty sure this guy owns the newspaper I work at.

    Hope he dies behind bars.

    Actually, that's a little mean. I amend that to say I hope he stays in prison for the rest of his life. :)

    An astonishing, disingenuous creep.

    It takes a long time for these schemes to unravel. My guess is Gannett will be out of business in a few years anyway.

    Not a fan of the Palm Beach press:

    "This gives me a long-awaited opportunity, deferred almost 30 years, to write that the Palm Beach Post-Times and Daily News are such abominably stupid, boring, poorly edited and vulgar products, they would cause Gutenberg to regret that he had invented the press and moved the world on from illuminated manuscripts."

    Vanity Fair, which usually has a much harder edge than this on its real reporting, produced one of the all-time bullshit cozy-up-to-the-criminal-to-get-the-story stories on this dickhead. It's six pages online, but I doubt you'll get past Page 1 before you want to fill out your Pulitzer, Nobel and Albert Schweitzer Humanitarian Award nomination forms on his behalf.

    He had comments on that one, too:

    "When I published my book about my legal persecution two months ago, one of the promotional indignities was an interview with Vanity Fair magazine. It was a half-snide and often inaccurate article that demonstrated the difficulties of trying to make a serious point in an unserious place. But I did make the points that I had committed no illegalities and had been vindicated, and that I was rigorously unimpressed by the whole American prosecutocracy and its oppressive apparat."
