Proviso Probe

LEGAL, Does anyone know a good defamation lawyer? [D88]

West Suburban Journal (Kevin Williams) is not just floating the theory Dr. Nichelle Rivers planted the porn on Principal Paul Glover's computer, it's making the allegation in a headline.
Superintendent plot foiled; Glover retained, Rivers removed

A principal accused of having pornographic material on his district issued laptop, a superintendent accused of planting the material and releasing photos to the media and shredding documents is the latest controversy swirling around Bellwood McKinley Elementary School.

If the board majority and Glover have been floating the theory Rivers placed the porn on Glover's computer, none of the Chicago media outlets even included this in their stories.

Oh wait, I just finished reading the West Suburban Journal article.
The school board president Marilyn Thurman said that she had seen the pictures, and commented that she did not think they were bad, although they were on school property.

So, Glover's patron, school board president Marilyn Thurman is defending Glover by saying the pictures aren't that bad, but West Suburban Journal is floating the theory Rivers placed the pictures in the same article.

Don't you think if the pictures were planted by a third party he'd tell his patron on the school board?

BTW, Thurman's defense doesn't hold water. Employers can fire employees for using work computers for personal activities, although I consider it over-reacting when the personal use is relatively innocent, like checking email. However, after having been warned--especially about porn--almost any employer would terminate the individual in question.

  • Dan Haley's opinion of Nyberg couldn't be more accurate... In Carl Nyberg, we hope that this campaign marks a turning point in his approach to civics, but until that corner is turned and a new path forged, we cannot endorse him. For far too long Nyberg has shown an interest in controversy and conspiracy theories while coming up short on solutions. Several of his responses at the candidates' forum sponsored by the Review were on point and worth exploring. But before he can win the public's trust he must show he has their interests....Forest Park Review Editorial April 4, 2007.

    Now, Nyberg purposely overlooks WSJ material on every occassion except to start SHIT. Guess you didn't learn from Haley's lesson

  • I didn't start the shit here.

    Nicole Trottie's paper seems to be defaming Nichelle Rivers.

    It's a fair issue to raise.

    As for raising the editorial, I could be a clinically insane serial killer and I still might have a point in this discussion.

    As for showing an interest in controversy, that's part of the reason Proviso Probe exists. I'm not going to apologize for this.

    Does Dan Haley's paper seek to avoid controversy? I guess I have trouble figuring out the point of the editorial. What's bad about being involved in controversy, especially for a media outlet?

    Should I have avoided covering the Broadview strip club b/c it was controversial?

  • Trottie and Haley best keep Nyberg at arms length. Nyberg's a mishap blogging his way into controversy and spiraling debt. Better stay away from Trottie, Welch will getchya. He's smarter than you on your best day Nyberg.

  • Doomed for failure sounds more like Trottie. Is Welch Trottie's personal body guard. Does Trottie share Welch with Nikita Johnson.

    Nyberg I think yoiu should really be scared of Welch and Trottie together to evil spirits can really do harm. Make sure you have your garlic and wooden cross.

  • I really took Trottie for a better person than that. Trottie how in the hell could you print such garbage. I will now be supporting the cause to not read your paper anymore. forget it Trottie....no Moore journal.
