Brickbat to JFP and the rest of the media.

Jim Craig and Matt Eichelberger's blog, Ipse Blogit, broke the story about Chip Pickering's wife filing an alienation of affection lawsuit yesterday. Mr. Eichelberger explained later he was in court, happened upon the hearing, and dug up the file, later posting it. There is no question he broke the story and since he was the one who was in the courtroom, it IS original work, not just trolling through public records as some will claim (although he should've tried to grab one of the lawyers for a quote).

NOT ONE SINGLE media outlet gave IB credit for the scoop yesterday but instead ripped him off. I'm singling out the JFP because they have made the most (and only) noise about this issue. Remember this?

"Well, they'd better not plagiarize Adam and not say where they got the story from. This one will be a good test of the ethics of our local media. Will they, or won't they?posted by ladd on 09/01/06 at 10:53 PM"

"It's truly bad form not to give credit where it's due. We do it all the time. They've done better by us in the past, but I guess they couldn't resist trying to own this one themselves. That's too bad. posted by ladd on 09/01/06 at 11:20 PM"

"Here's a hint, insidestory: When someone else reports a story first, just say, "As reported on the Jackson Free Press Web site this afternoon ... ." It's simple. We do it all the time. posted by ladd on 09/01/06 at 11:39 PM"

The media should credit Ipse Blogit for the scoop. period.

I'm also pissed that none of the bigger media outlets seem to have given Ipse it's due credit.
Thanks for pointing this out KF.

You are welcome.

Of course, I still think Eichelberger is an agent of ZOG and that is post was the work of the ADL and their ZOG allies as an attack of good decent hard-working Christians as they seek to impose their Zionist ways on the rest of us but that is a post for another day. You have to be very careful when fighting ZOG.

Fish, are you buying this:

All, someone just e-mailed us that this story originally broke yesterday on our friends Matt Eichelberger and Jim Craig's excellent blog. Click over and catch up. I'd assumed it came out of AP or such; we retweeted WAPT on it immediately when it broke into the media yesterday. In Google News, AP showed up as the first outlet that had it, but we want to give credit where it's due. And from the look of their blog, they actually dug it up; so it was "enterprise" rather than just passing on the news everyone has, which most blogs do.

Good work, guys! And cheers for having an intelligent blog and ethically using your real names to back up what you write. This is personal blogging at its finest.

She can't stand it that you don't show your real name. Doesn't she get it, that personal blogs are PERSONAL.

This must be that goofy blog Gen. Hood was talking about.

Brief mention of your good work.

Jim Craig said...

I went straight from a client meeting to Jones Corner for what turned out to be a VERY long time (I did not realize that a half-pound burger could take so long to cook, and I didn't hear bovine death throes, so I still don't know why), so I'm just now reading this string.

Thanks to KF for asserting our rights at IB. Matt did a great job getting the story out, and he deserves credit for it.

I did not realize my secret ZOG hand signals had been stolen, though. I hope the High Command is forgiving.

2:34: Saw it and actually do appreciate.

Hilariously, the blog post on the JFP was removed.

Life is so much easier when you can erase those things that don't line up with your way of thinking.

What did it say?

Found this:

Good goal, Gerard. ;-)

Also, to the general readership, we just closed a blog post by the fearless Jackson Breland because it contained content paraphrased from another blog that has not been confirmed. Thus, the post will need to be factchecked and perhaps edited before going live.

Fish, is Ladd a former lover or ex-wife that can't get over you?

Hookah said...

KF I like how you used ole Ladd's favorite word (TROLL) in the beginning of your post.

I don't understand. How can you jump up and down about JFP when WLBT ripped your story on Irby's past DUI and didn't attribute to you? Are you always going to kiss WLBT's butt? Marsha Thompson acted like it was her work. Where's the balance in criticism?

Matt Eichelberger said...

Kingfish, I appreciate this, man. It's been a little disheartening to watch others take credit for this. The JFP was crowing yesterday about how CNN gave them credit for the story.

Here's the deal: Ipse Blogit has received around 3,000 hits in the past 48 hours. Mostly from a link on and, who gave proper credit. The PDF I created (the one containing the complaint you've all been reading, and that's been posted across the web & shown all over the TV) has been viewed approximately 5,000 times. No credit. On top of that, I "tweeted" it TWO HOURS before the Clarion-Ledger broke this in the mainstream press. Donna follows my tweets, just like she does WAPT's. I understand, though, that tweets fly by on Twitter like mosquitos on a Delta highway at night: you catch a lot on your windshield, but most slip right by.

So, I appreciate her recognizing the omission and giving Jim & I credit now. That's FAR better than the rest of the media has done, save this site, Y'all Politics, SSP, and those mentioned above.

Fish, I gotta wonder who ELSE knew about this affair. Going on for 7+ years? In DC? Was this info used to coerce him into votes he may not have wanted? IIRC he voted for amnesty even though most of his district didn't support it. I'm sure there are more 'questionable' votes. Is this the 'hook' into some of the RINO's and their votes for example on the cap&tax bill? It would seem there are always turncoats either bought with outright pork or 'suspicious' changes of mind. Remember the FBI files from Clinton's reigh?

Classic Alinsky BTW.

One more question about Pickerings integrity. Rumor has it his wife found out about the affair via a cell phone ringing in his jacket pocket. Not his 'usual' cell phone, a 'different' one that she didn't know he had. Now, who paid for that cell phone? Was it a gift? From Cell South? While he was a congressperson? Hmmmm...

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
