These days, Judge Jed Rakoff’s name creates about as much agita inside the SEC as as Bernie Madoff. If Wall Street’s cops on the beat didn’t have enough to deal with already, now Judge Jed is up their ass about a seemingly meaningless legal settlement in the Galleon insider trading case....

Did Charlie Gasparino get Teri Buhl fired? Analysis & Opinion ...
Felix Salmon

It’s well known that Charlie Gasparino likes getting into mini-feuds with reporters who write about him, myself included......

It’s part of what makes him Charlie, and he’s welcome to call me a twerpy nutjob as much as he likes. But he and former Trader Monthly publisher Randall Lane now seem to have gone far beyond name-calling on blogs: it looks as though they have gone so far as to get a full-time reporter fired from her job, in retaliation for her writing about them.

What’s worse, the reporter in question, Teri Buhl, hasn’t just been fired from her job at Greenwich Time, a Hearst newspaper in Connecticut; her entire archive of blog entries there has disappeared, leaving only a message saying “This blog has been archived or suspended”. It’s as though Hearst wanted not only to fire her, but to make it seem as though they’d never hired her — although there is still an archive of stories she wrote for the newspaper itself.

What caused this vindictive and aggressive behavior towards a reporter who is, after all, now going to be looking for freelance work based on the quality of her clips? To erase all of those clips is harsh punishment indeed......

.....So what happened here? Buhl wrote about Gasparino a couple of times on the blog she was hired to write at the beginning of this year — the blog entries are now down, of course, but for the time being the Google cache can be seen here and here. They weren’t particularly nice about Charlie, and they called him “Gas-bag”, a common nickname which he doesn’t like. Angered, Charlie called up Zebora, Teri’s editor, and accused her of “stalking” him; Zebora, like any good editor, had her back.

But it didn’t end there: Charlie then called Zebora’s boss, McCumber, and made the same complaint. Once again, he didn’t get very far. And then Charlie went further still, calling Steven Swartz, the president of Hearst newspapers, again with the same complaint.

Meanwhile, another media bigwig was getting annoyed by Buhl. Buhl had written a story about Randall Lane for Dealbreaker in July 2009, saying that he would find it difficult to sell the assets of his bankrupt company, Doubledown Media, and that he’d given his cousin access to Doubledown’s subscriber list after promising his subscribers that he would never do such a thing.

Teri wrote about Lane on her Greenwich Time blog in February (Google cache here), and immediately Lane, too, started calling her superiors, complaining....

Greenwich Historical Society Survey

The Greenwich Historical Society recently received a $5,000 grant from the Connecticut Humanities Council for research to aid in marketing and communication planning. The project will explore public perceptions of the Historical Society’s core values as well as seek feedback on the types of programs that motivate membership and support. The resulting information will assist in the development of new activities, exhibitions and membership initiatives to better serve the community’s needs.

The project will also survey communications preferences, which will enable the Historical Society to develop more efficient communications and heighten both member and public awareness of its activities. It will also explore potential partnership initiatives with other local organizations that share overlapping membership.

Sponsorship International Research (SRi) of South Norwalk, aided in the development and design of the survey. The project comes in conjunction with implementation of a new logo and graphic image for the Historical Society to be unveiled later this spring, designed by creative director Angela Vecchio, a former resident of Greenwich. The new image was developed to reflect the Historical Society’s new mission statement, which focuses on a contemporary and broad-based approach that seeks to “inspire people to make personal connections with the past and use stories and objects from Greenwich to illuminate the American experience.”

Representatives from the Greenwich Historical Society will be administering the survey at public meetings and venues throughout Greenwich now through May and it will be sent to all members. It may be completed on line or in writing and should take about ten minutes to complete. Call 203-869-6899, Ext. 12 for more information. The only two requirements are that participants be Greenwich residents and over age 18.
