A Proposal for Patch Pixie Janine Iamunno

Recently, LVS caught AOL Patch editorial assistant Jerry Brahm deleting my verifiably factual Patch comments on Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin and concealing the truth @ AOL Patch Lehigh Valley-- just like The Morning Call "newspaper" does.

Then, to add to Patch's exposed mortified embarrassment, one of AOL Patch's Lehigh Valley editors (for now) Mariella Savidge broke ranks and praised me.

Now, we've caught AOL Patch Lehigh Valley w/ its pants down (and on fire) for a third time, and as a 'make good,' I want to be selected-honored w/ a gig as an unpaid AOL Patch Lehigh Valley blogger. Yeah.

Here's my proposal ...

Email, Outgoing, to Lehigh Valley Patch Regional Editor Susan Koomar (left), editorial gopher/hatchet "man" Jerry Brahm, Patch VP of Communications Janine Iamunno, and Lower Macungie Patch Editor Mariella Savidge.

Recently, Lehigh Valley Patch publicly solicited for bloggers, and I applied, to all 11 local Patch editors, but I was ignored by 8 or 9 of them and denied by the rest. The reason I was given (by 2-3 in lock-step Lehigh Valley Patch editors via email) is because I live in Allentown ... and there's no Allentown Patch.

I told the Patch editors I was from "Lehigh County" and wanted to write on county-wide issues.

They told me Patch wanted their bloggers to write about issues specific to the area they lived in-- Emmaus bloggers writing about Emmaus stuff, South Whitehall bloggers writing about South Whitehall matters. Etc.

Patch then signed up Trexlertown blogger and admitted Villas cyber stalker
Chris Casey to write about county-wide issues, and seemingly, whatever strikes his quasi-literate fancy.

See Chris Casey's poorly written Patch blog posts on
May 17, 18, 23, and 31, 2011.

Q. What's with this glaringly exposed Double Standard?

And, what would be the down-side of enlisting me to write about DA Jim Martin for Lehigh Valley Patch in an election year?

P.S. Mariella, you promised me a follow-up phone call last week. I'm still waiting ...

Essential Reading > WHY WE FIGHT

UpDate: Despite several polite follow-up e-inquiries, I've yet to hear a peep of response back from anyone at Patch. Apparently they're all making believe that they are "ignoring" my excellent questions-- just like The Morning Call "newspaper" does.

[Update] In an email dated October 24, 2011, Patch's VP of "Communications" (for now) Janine Iamunno wrote: "Mr. Villa, we've suspended [i.e., comment-muzzled] your Patch account." Editor's Note: Not surprising, I guess, that Lehigh Valley Patch's mostly ex-Morning Call editors would borrow a page from the Morning Call's truth-muzzling playbook to shut me up and protect DA Jim Martin.

[Update] In an email dated February 8, 2012, Patch's VP of "Communications" (for now) Janine Iamunno wrote: "Mr. Villa, please remove my photo and the associated false claim of 'censorship' from your site immediately."

UpDate: BILL VILLA ON WAEB AM 790

And Chris Casey doesn't even "write" for Patch.

Patch re-prints the drivel Casey posts at HIS blog.

So why can't Patch re-print Bill Villa's verifiably factual LVS truth at Patch?

You know, the information Mariella Savidge TRUSTS and RESPECTS.

Bill Villa said...

That's an excellent question that deserves to be answered, merci.

"BEST" OF "ANONYMOUS"

* Your a big commie stalker. -"Anonymous" comment at LVS

* A simple Google of Bill Villa will produce a mountain of reports of him spamming and harassing anyone who challenges his "truths". People who view his comments need to realize that clicking on his links may allow him to place a cookie on your computer. That malware can produce all kinds of issues." -"Anonymous" comment allowed at Patch

* Did [Robert LaBarre] intentionally murder [Sheena Villa]? No. But that is what Mr Villa wants the world to believe. And he will not stop harassing every person who doesn't agree with him. -"Anonymous" comment allowed at Patch

* One more thing wackjob...You are a notorious spammer and harasser. That is why I only listed my first name. All you need is a means to contact someone and WHAM 1000 emails a day come from you and your computer generated spammer. -"Anonymous" comment allowed at Patch

* If we really want justice to be served, the Bethlehem Patch will delete Bill Villa's comments.-"Anonymous" comment allowed at Patch

* Dead drunken whorish daughters hurt the most on Fathers Day. –“Jim Martin 4 God” commenting at LVS

* when a drunk whore gets killed after getting into a car to suck the cock of a drunk man, the family has little to blame but the parenting of a divorced mother and father who did not teach their daughter wrong from right -"Anonymous" comment at LVS

* kinda sad your whorish daughter died giving head to a drunk driver. Why did the whore get in the car with a drunk? She wanted to feel his cock in her mouth and gag on it as he shot a load of jizz in her throat. -"Anonymous" comment at LVS

* I am proud to be at the TOP OF YOUR PUBLIC ENEMIES list. Doesn't bother me at all. How many people are on it now, 100? I'm in good company with all the Morning Call employees and every elected official who ignores you. –Chris Casey, signed comment allowed at Patch

WORTH REPEATING DEPARTMENT

Readers, although we get a steady spew stream (daily) of cyber stalking taunts and threats here at LVS and at AOL Patch Lehigh Valley, and sadly, not all of them are from (wink wink) "anonymous" ...

Anonymous said...

Why r u posting those horrible comments about sheena? U r doing far more harm than good to her memory. Please stop, just do the right thing and take those comments down. Isn't that what u would want any other blogger to do? It doesn't matter if people read those vile things here or elsewhere the comments r still vile. Peace to u and the family

Bill Villa said...

I want people like you to see the price my family is paying for our "sin" of speaking truth to power.

Instead of getting on me for reprinting these vile comments (and Sheena's memory is doing fine, BTW), I suggest you go to the source and confront Team Donovan/Casey/Pooley/White about them.

Bill Villa said...

" ... take those comments down. Isn't that what u would want any other blogger to do?" -"Anonymous"

(almost forgot)

Outgoing Allentown city councilor and Cedar Crest College "ethics" professor Michael Donovan is on record as saying that vile comments such as those above are "fun to read" when posted at his blog.

In fact, after deleting hundreds of eerily similar comments at his blog, "inadvertently," as Donovan told 69 News, Donovan later proudly re-posted them all manually at his blog where they can all still be seen.

Democrats for Don Ritter said...

A lot of those vile comments are in the writing style of Ned Donovan. Just sayin'.

Bill Villa said...

Good point, and I certainly have enough vile emails from Ned Donovan and Donovan's wife (for now) Diana Morse to compare their "anonymous" writing styles, that's a fact.

Anonymous said...

But Chris Casey (left) has publicly taken credit for them ...

"I am proud to be at the TOP OF YOUR PUBLIC ENEMIES list." -Chris Casey

... while signing his name to numerous,
nearly identical comments.

Bill Villa said...

True.

RS said...

A lot of those vile comments are in the writing style of Dave Najarian. Just sayin'.

Bill Villa said...

And (just sayin'), Dave's got a motive.

McJudas said...

Then again, Bill White has taken a curiously out-in-front position of antagonism on all this, can't rule him out...or Larry Kisslinger.

I've always suspected kvetching hater Mike Molovinsky.

Bill Villa said...

Us too. We also suspect another "guy" w/ a vendetta motive against us, Michael Donovan cyber filth cheerleader Bob Romancheck.

Mrs. Dottie said...

Refusing to denounce Donovan's cyber terror against us = endorsing it. Ask Allentown City Council ... ;D

There is obviously a very tangled web of local opposition to the Villas. Most of it, for example the slanted and deceitful Morning Call reporting of both the LaBarre prosecution and Bill's subsequent exposé blogging endeavors; coupled with aloofness and stonewalling on the part of the local media regarding this blog's excellent exposé reporting on D.A. James Martin, etc., reveals a very obvious vein of vested interest "water carrying" for D.A. Martin's reelection, with the local Patches instinctively following the exact same "quash and conceal" game plan against the Villas, Patch LV being (tragically) populated by mostly former Morning Call staffers. Other opposition and attempted sabotage of the Villas (I've always believed) involves simple shallow primal jealously on the part of other local bloggers who lack the Villas' investigative and writing and graphic talents and can't bring themselves to acknowledge the glaring facts and truths put forth here at LVS. And then there's the "duped dunce" overlap element, i.e., those insider wanna-be's who have been sucked into fighting the Villas by the water carrying D.A. Martin forces (Morning Call and its local blogosphere defenders) and for which these "duped dunces" might never realize how they've been "played" for the D.A. Martin cause (Donovans/Pooley). The majority following the Villa saga here at LVS, as evidenced by "Sitemeter spotlights," appear to be mostly the vested interest D.A. Martin water-carrying types, e.g., Lehigh County.org and Morning Call/Tribune, and their allies. What's most amazing to me is that the Villas remain undefeated in this "can't win" environment. Truly amazing. Miraculous, dare I say.

Bill Villa said...

1:59 ... we've always known and appreciated that there were people (albeit silently, for now) reading LVS who "get it." Thank you for affirming that for us.

Mrs. Dottie said...

1:59, merci for "getting it" ... ;D

Anonymous said...

I second everything "1:59" said, and for what it's worth, I believe the most vicious anonymous comments hurled at you come from Scott Armstrong. He's a neighbor of Donovan's, is politically aligned with Donovan, and Bill out-debated Armstrong here on a post about Lynn Swan for Governor a while back that likely burned a hole in Armstrong's craw.

Bill Villa said...

Could be. We know Scott Armstrong is a hater, take a look at this rabidly racist entry at his blog ... BTW, loyal "regulars" at Scott Armstrong's blog include Allentown School Board members David Zimmerman and Bob Smith, two other logical suspects regarding the "anonymous" comment filth posted daily here at LVS, their motive being anger at us for outing them.

Readers, FYI, the vilest of the "anonymous" comments displayed above came flying into LVS w/ a rapid fire fury shortly after I emailed loser Lehigh County Commissioner candidate David C. Najarian and informed him that (as registered Lehigh County voters) Angie and I were thrilled that he lost. A timing coincidence? You be the judge.
