1/27/09 Hearst Corporate Lawyer Ravi Sitwala Puts An End To The Media War Bettween Thin Skinned Bruce Hunter And Greenwich Roundup

Disgraced And Thin Skinned Greenwich Time Managing Editor Surrenders

Hearst Corporate Lawyer Ravi Sitwalla Called Greenwich Roundup Today And Was Very Proffessional And Pleasant. Ravi Listened To Greenwich Roundup Concerns And We Both Agreed To Come To A Mutually Acceptable Solution To Thin Skinned Bruce Hunters Complaints About Greenwich Roundup.

Unfortunately, Greenwich Roundups Cell Phone Was In A Dead Zone In The Greenwich Back Country And Ravi Had To Call Multiple Times As We DiscussedA Resolution To The Problem Bruce Hunter Caused Hearst Newspapers.

Ravi And I Agreeded That.....

Greenwich Roundup Will Not Have To Modify Greenwich Time That Is Transformative And Therefore Fair Use. For Example Critical Posts About Greenwich Time Editors And Reporters Writings Do Not Violate Copyrights.

Hearst Corporate Lawyer Ravi Sitwalla Stressed That The Hearst Corporation Is A Media Company And In No Way Wants To Infringe On The Free Speech Rights Of Another Citizen Or Media Outlet.

But Since Bruce Hunter Had A Problem With Some Postings That Encouraged Greenwich Roundup Readers To Visit The Greenwich Time And It's Advertisers, A Few Changes Might Have To Be Made....

Ravi Said And Greenwich Roundup Agreed ......

That Greenwich Time Photos Can Be Used With Greenwich Roundup Links To The Greenwich Time So Long As The Photo Is Reduced To A Smaller Thumb Nail Size.

Greenwich Roundup Agreed To This, Because the courts have repeatedly shown that they are willing to recognize a much broader scope for fair use on the Web than they have in connection with conventional print and broadcast media.

Indeed, both the District and Appellate courts seem eager to find fair use in thumbnail images, largely based on their findings that the use was "transformative." Both courts have focused on the fact that the photos serve an entirely different function in the context of a website or blog.

Plus There Is A Benefit To Greenwich Roundup Readers:

Smaller Pictures Will Allow Greenwich Roundup Pages To Load Faster And Look More Professional.

Ravi Said And Greenwich Roundup Also Agreed ......

That Our Links To Greenwich Time Stories Would Be Limited To A Few Sentences, In Order To Technically Meet Current Fair Use Requirements. So A Greenwich Article Link That Had Five or Six Sentences Would Be Cut Back To Two Or Three Sentences.

Greenwich Roundup Thinks This Is A Good Chance To Clean Up And Professionalize Some Posts. However, Greenwich Roundup Thinks Thin Skinned Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter Is Cutting His Nose Off In Spite Of His Face.

When Greenwich Roundup Provides A Link To A Greenwich Time Story With Five Or Six Sentences There Is A Greater Probability That A Reader Interest Will Be Increased To A Point Where He Or She Will Visit The Greenwich Time Web Site.

However, A Link With Two Or Three Sentences Is Less Likely To Cause A Greenwich Roundup Reader To Visit The Greenwich Time Web Site.

So Later If The Greenwich Time Web Site Has A Drop In Visitors Then Everyone Will Be Able To Blame Thin Skinned Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter.

Lastly, Ravi And Greenwich Roundup Agreed .......

That Bruce Hunter, Or One Of His Employees Will Email Greenwich Roundup Individual Links To Posts That He Thinks Might Technically Violate Current Free Use Standards.

Greenwich Roundup Will Endeavour To Quickly Edit The Offending Posts And Then Report Back To Ravi With The Same Links Showing That The Modifications Were Made.

If There Is A Disagreement Over If One Of Bruce Hunter's Links Is Transformitive And Does Not Violate Current Free Use Statutes, Then Ravi And Greenwich Roundup Will Discuss The Matter And Come Up With A Solution That Is Agreeable To Hearst Corporation And Greenwich Roundup.

So The Ball Is Now In Bruce Hunter's Court .....

Greenwich Roundup Is Awaiting His Email Listing Specific Greenwich Roundup Posts That He Thinks Are In Appropriate Under Fair Use Regulations.

Bruce Hunter Can Send His Emailed List Of Specific Posts To GreenwichRoundup@gmail.com And A Carbon Copy To rsitwala@hearst.com And Any Needed Corrections Will Be Made As Quickly As Possible.

1/27/09 I Spoke To Steven Swartz's Office About Thin Skinned Greenwich Time Managing Editor Using Hearst Corporation Lawyers InAppropriately

Greenwich Roundup Has Left Another Message For Hearst Corporation Lawyer Ravi Sitwalla, But Ravi Has Not Gotten Back As Of Yet.

So I Called Up Hearst Newspaper's Corporate Offices In New York City And Spoke To Steven Swartz's Secretary And Had A Long Converstion About Thin Skinned Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter.

This Very Nice Lady Is Getting Mr. Swartz Up To Speed On How Publisher John "I Can't Pick A Winning Tean" Dunster Is Bungling The Hearst Corporation Into A Civil Rights Lawsuit.

Dunster And The Thin Skinned Hunter Have Really Stirred Up A Hornets Nest. Google Analytics Web Tracking Software Says Hearst Corporation Servers Are All Over Greenwich Roundup As We Speak.

Maybe Hearst Corporation Lawyer Ravi Sitwalla Will Return Greenwich Roundups Phone Calls Once He Gets Off The Computer.

While We Wait For Ravi To Call About Thin Skinned Bruce Hunter
You Can Read This Little Item.....
Things Are Really Screwed Up At Hearst Newspapers
Hearst Newspapers Is Closing Down A Really God Newspaper In Seattle While It Sends It's Corporate Lawyers To Attack A Blogger Who Criticized A Really Bad Newspaer That Has An Editor With A Thin Skin.

When Hearst Corporation announced it put Seattle's oldest newspaper, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, , up for sale, the newsroom didn't hesitate to report on it. It's news after all, they say.

The clock is ticking on the paper's future and time is starting to run out. Hearst is waiting 60 days to find a new owner, otherwise the paper could go online-only or close completely. Talk about a downer of a week for a newspaper that has gained a lot of respect in recent years as it upped its local coverage.

The paper is now doing something risky and pretty unique. They are documenting their own unknown future and giving readers a window into a frightened and most likely depressed newsroom as everyone waits for good news.

The Star Tribune, which could file bankruptcy in less than two weeks, should use Seattle P-I as an example of how a newspaper handles its own potential downfall.

Seattle P-I had video coverage of Hearst Newspaper Division President Steve Swartz telling the staff that the newspaper will go up for sale.

Here's The Video......

Will Steve Swartz Be Visiting Whats Left Of The Greenwich Time's Newsroom In Riverside?
When Is Hearst Newspaper Head Honcho Steven Swartz Going To Realize That Greenwich Time Editor Bruce Hunter Is No Digital Don.
However, Hunter Does Whines Like A Diva.
Other Hearst Newspapers Are Enhanced With Video Reports, But Has Any One Seen A Video Up On The Home Page Of The Greenwich Time In The Last Year?
Steven Swartz Needs To Wake Up. Thin Skinned Bruce Hunter Is The Wrong Man At The Wrong Time To Lead The Greenwich Time In These Very Difficult Times.

Dear Bob,

I Think I Just Might Be Paying The $25 To Join MediaBloggers.Org . But First I Am Going To Bone Up On Media Law So That I Can Pass The Test In Your Application Test.

But First I am Once Again Try And Talk To Hearst Corporation Lawyer Ravi Sitwalla And See If He Really Wants Go To War Over Thin Skinned Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter.

I am Sure That Ravi And Hearst Newspaper Steven Swartz Will Be Able To Come Up With A Compromise That Will Make Greenwich Roundup And The Hearst Corporation Happy.

Greenwich Roundup Has Criticized Hearst Newspaper"s Weekly Paper, The Greenwich Citizen, In The Same Manner As, The Greenwich Time, But Greenwich Citizen Editor Don Harrison Is Not as Weak Minded And Thin Skinned As Bruce Hunter.

Unlike Hunter, Don Harrison Clearly Understands The Concepts Freedom Of Speech And Freedom Of The Press. Harrison Can Think Two Steps Ahead.

The Problem With Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter Is That He Is More Than Willing To Sit On The Hearst Media Throne And Pass Judgement On The Job Performance Of Everyone From The President, The Governor And Everyone Else He Happens To Encounter.

But When Judgement Is Passed On His Job Performance At The Greenwich Time He Has Publisher John "I Just Can't Pick A Winning Team."Dunster Calling Up Corporate Lawyers To Attack The Freedom Of Speech Rights Of A Little Ole Blogger.

As Bad As Last Years Greenwich Time Editors Were. Joe Pisani, David Warner And Jim Zebora Was They Did Not Try To Use Hearst Media Corporate Lawyers To Deny A Critics Free Speech Rights, Like Thin Skinned Bruce Hunter Has.

However Jim Zebora Did Try And Unsuccessfully Try To Use The Greenwich Time Editorial Pages To Attack Bloggers, But The Cowardly Zebora Quickly Hid Under His Desk When Bloggers Shot Back.

Joe Pisani, Even Called Greenwich Roundup At Home Asking That I Stop Mentioning How He Commissioned An Investigative Report On Martha Moxley And Did Not Publish It For A Decade, Because He Thought That Kennedy Relatives Would Sue The Paper For Printing Information That Would Point To Michael Skakel.

You Would Think That Hearst Newspapers Head Honcho Steven Swartz And Hearst Corporation Lawyer Ravi Sitwalla Would Relize That Greenwich Roundup's Criticisms Were Right On Target Since Greenwich Time Publisher John Dunster Has Went Through Four Editors In Less Than A Year.

No Other Daily Newspaper In Newspaper In The World Has Went Through Four Editors In Less Than A Year.

Hearst Newspaper Corporation Head David Swartz Should Realize That Improving The Greenwich Time Is The Only Wat To Silence The Newspaper's Critics.

Mr.Swartz Should Be Aware That Greenwich Roundup Is Getting Many Emails From Readers Who Say Some Of The Issues Raised Are A Matter Of Unsettled Law And That This Situation Might Be A Perfect Test Case.

Personally Greenwich Roundup Is Tempted To Bet His Meager Assets Against The Assets Of The Mega Bucks Hearst Corporation In A Court Of Law.

Greenwich Roundup Has A Confession For Hearst Newspaper's David Swartz...

Greenwich Roundup Is Really Tired Of His Boring Old Old Meager Assets, He Sure Would Like Some Brand New Shinny Assets From The Mega Bucks Hearst Newspaper Corporation's Newspaper Division Thanks To Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter.

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides that:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

This language restricts government both more and less than it would if it were applied literally. It restricts government more in that it applies not only to Congress, but to all branches of the federal government, and to all branches of state and local government. It restricts government less in that it provides no protection to some types of speech and only limited protection to others.

The First Amendment limits the federal government from making any law or regulation that would ban or indirectly tend to suppress — that is, “chill” — speech or expression. Historically, the First Amendment has been interpreted broadly to protect individuals from government attempts to suppress political, ideological, or scientific ideas or information, and to defend against government incursions on freedom of expression in art, literature, movies, music and the press.

The provisions of the First Amendment have been interpreted to provide a bulwark against government intervention in the most basic elements of our democracy — the expression of thought, opinion, and belief. As necessary conditions to democratic governance, the rights embodied in the First Amendment occupy a “preferred position“ in the hierarchy of constitutional rights. As Justice Rutledge, speaking for the majority of the Supreme Court, said in 1945:

This case confronts us again with the duty . . . to say where the individual’s freedom ends and the State’s power begins. Choice on that border, now as always delicate, is perhaps more so where the usual presumption supporting legislation is balanced by the preferred place given in our scheme to the great, the indispensable democratic freedoms secured by the First Amendment . . .

That priority gives these liberties a sanctity and a sanction not permitting dubious intrusions, and it is the character of the right, not of the limitation, which determines what standard governs the choice. . . .
