Gannon-Guckert Whining....
Edited on Wed Nov-30-05 07:57 PM by BJW
Link to recent post of his supporting Coulter's posting of an e-mailer's personal info online. Thinks it's fair play. Also whines about how he'll probably be on some end of the year liberal gay outed hall of shame list.

<snip> Funny, these same folks didn't have any problems publishing my phone number, home address, Social Security number and medical records online...<snip>

http://www.jeffgannon.com /

Question: I don't EVER recall seeing any of his personally identifiable info posted online except his own self-published bio & photos, and easily obtained, publicly accessible address info for his "company." No SS #, no medical records. Methinks he's exaggerating and playing victim here? Or did I miss something?

Question: Is there any formal investigation going on as to how in the hell he was credentialed as a White House reporter?

1. I never saw anything personal of his published on line, but then, I didn't
look...that picture of him posing for his OTHER whore job made me sick enough; why the hell would I want any personal information on him? :eyes:

2. I know!!!
The only "medical" type info I can think of was his own descriptions and pics of his "physique"--but alleging that his medical records were published on line by liberal bloggers??? puh-leez.

7. Is he claiming that "liberals" outed him??
Well geez Jimmy Jeff.... how many heterosexual GAY PROSTITUTES do you know?? I think when you openly advertise yourself as a GAY PROSTITUTE on the internet, it kinda does away with that whole closet thing, right?

14. Yeah, he's going total victim here....
whining about how he's gonna end up on some year-in-review gay liberal list of "outed" closet cases--which obviously doesn't fit the facts.

17. well there are three things I'd like answered:
Who cleared him for a White House press pass?

Who was he visiting after hours when there weren't any press conferences?

Who did he get the classified intel from?

What I don't understand is WHY M$M hasn't done follow-up, but I can make an educated guess.

9. Was it ever revealed who Gannon was visiting in the White House
with all those times he came and stayed quite late and after hours on week-ends?

12. No, not that I know of
and frankly I DO want to know what the whole deal is with this guy, especially his claim that he had received some secret intel. WHY isn't this being investigated????

21. I have a feeling Guckert will be back in the spotlight before
Bush's term is over. He's just laying low right now.

25. "Laying low"?
That's an understatement. I looked at the hit rates for his blog. Suffice to say, he's *really* laying low.

23. I did find an allegation on a repug website that
<snip> Gannon's personal privacy has been invaded and his mother, in her 70s, had to endure harassing telephone calls from those on the political left trying to dig up dirt. <snip>

http://www.aim.org/aim_column/2634_0_3_0_C /

but I still haven't come across any blogger's site or website or anything containing his personal info like he alleges has occurred. Nor do I recall him complaining about his mother supposedly being harassed by liberal bloggers calling her and asking questions.

Seems like something M$M reporters would do.

26. Speaking of Gannon ! Just got this email from Lautenberg Re; Gannon
I used phony address (B & B in Cape May) just so he would read my letter from months and months ago....


December 2, 2005


Ms. XXXXXXXXXX
719 Columbia Avenue
Cape May, NJ 08204

Dear Karen:

Thank you for contacting me about White House reporter James Guckert, a.k.a. Jeff Gannon. I appreciate hearing from you, and apologize for the delay in my response.

Jeff Gannon, then a reporter for the conservative Talon News, received national attention for asking softball questions of Press Secretary Scott McClellan during White House press briefings. Gannon was ineligible for permanent access to the briefing room because he was not credentialed by the Congressional press galleries. Instead, the White House issued him daily passes
for nearly two years.

This is just one of a series of incidents that signal this administrations apparent willingness to mislead American citizens. I wrote to Scott McClellan in February, requesting that he release all relevant documents regarding how Jeff Gannon enjoyed such free access to the White House briefing room when he used an alias and worked for a questionable news source. I have repeatedly
demanded answers in cases such as that of conservative commentator Armstrong Williams, whom the Department of Education paid to pass off positive comments about its policies as his own.

Finally, I have introduced legislation, which has just been reported unanimously out of the Senate Commerce Committee, to require the administration to disclose itself as the source when it pays for or produces prepackaged news for broadcast in the United States. This prepackaged news is made to look like real news with a real reporter, and does not tell the viewer that it is actually information coming straight from the U.S. Government.

Please be assured that I will continue to fight disturbing efforts such as these by the administration to control public information. Thank you again for contacting me.
