05/08/10 Jeff Weber's Reponce To Greenwich Roundup's Responce, Which Responded To Jeff Weber's Reponce To One Of Greenwich Roundup's Articles

WGCH's JEFF WEBER WRITES:

Thanks for your response to my comments on your recent blog.

I am surprised however, that you still are making misstatements despite my correcting them for you.

I am also surprised that you have not taken down the headline and statement Jeff "The Hustler" Weber as you indicated in your response that perhaps that was "too strong". Perhaps I have to formally request that you refrain from that characterization of me. If so, I do just that now.

Regarding your comments regarding WCTE: Again, our company never had anything to do with a station with that call letters nor did I ever see a story that referred to our operating of 540 AM with those call letters. We operated that station for three years, but it was sold to another company a few years ago. We never owned it.

Concerning your comments about WGCH's failure to report on the arrest of the two principles of Spongetech, again you are incorrect. We DID report on it. It aired throughout our morning newscast on Thursday, May 6, 2010 and again throughout the day during the Noon and afternoon newscasts.

You spoke about my "recent bonus of $6,500." Wish I new about that: I haven't received a bonus in that amount nor any bonus in any amount in at least two years.

You also responded to one of my comments and asked: "Are you saying that you have abstained from voting your 6.38% of Map VI acquisitions? As we are not a publicly traded company, there are no calls for votes. Many of your comments and statements are predicated on our being a public company;we are not.

So again, I repeat: I am not a member of the board of directors and therefore have never voted on matters decided by it.

Additionally, your continued comments about "Jeff Weber's company" are erroneous as that statement indicates I own it or it belongs to me. Maybe you think that is splitting hairs however I find it to be a misleading statement.

Regarding the network studios located at WGCH, I would suggest your research is a bit flawed as our network studios and offices have been located in Stamford for about four years. I resent your statement that I am trying to hustle you. I cordially invite you to stop by at a time convenient to both of us so I can give you a tour.

The WGCH studios are in Greenwich as they have been for more than 40 years and are hardly in a small room as you have stated.

I am surprised that you refer to me as Chief Operating Officer of the company. I am not nor have I ever been.

I would hope that the incorrect statements and misrepresentations you've made will be corrected so that your blog does not contain erroneous information. You said that Greenwich Roundup is only out to get the truth. If so, then I would expect corrections to the information I've outlined here. In the past, I've respected your blog for digging into stories. And I've told you so on occasion. However, digging for the truth and trying to create the impression I'm a "hustler" or money grubbing individual because I work with someone who was arrested is an unfair characterization.

You don't know me...you don't know who I am or anything else about my character. To denigrate it and me is wrong. I have worked hard all my life to earn the kind of compensation I do. And I'm not embarrassed by it. I'm an honest person who never earned a penny illegally or immorally. You have deeply insulted me by your rush to judgement.

Jeff Weber
COMMENT:

Dear Mr. Weber:

Since you have been at WGCH there have been hundreds of town residents who have felt that they have been slighted by the station.

Local author and blogger Greenwich Diva was unhappy about how the Greenwich Time covered how she and her friends were treated by the Greenwich Police Department when she and some of her friends exercised in a public park. Your radio station parroted the Greenwich Time coverage that she felt was extremely slanted against her and the other ladies.

She and some of the other ladies might love to go on WGCH and have a say about how minorities are treated in Greenwich, but that wont ever happen while you and Tony Savino are in charge of the news.

When was the last time, you guys went down to town hall to file a Freedom of Information request for embarrassing information about persons doing wrong doing in town government?

WGCH used to do this.

I think the last time was when Jim "The Voice Of Greenwich" Thompson filed a Freedom of Information request for town employees were stealing park passes. So after that you guys fired him.

Many voices in town don't get heard at WGCH and the other mainstream media outlets in town - and most of those voices are from the weakest members of Greenwich society.

You guys pick and choose who gets ignored all of the time.
Recently, The Greenwich Time refused to print a letter to the editor from RTM member Paul Curtis (District 9) about RTM Moderators sneaky vote after the vote maneuver.

But Greenwich Roundup prides himself on letting all voices into the conversation, especially those who disagree with his posts.

Greenwich Roundup is surprised that you are surprised he has "not taken down the headline and statement" 05/07/10 WGCH Boss Jeff "The Hustler" Weber Has A Lot Of Explaining To Do About His Major "Map VI Acquisition" Holdings
Greenwich Roundup is not taking down any headlines or posts.

He will let you respond to any of these posts, because he is believes in free speach.
One thing, that kills me is how mainstream media types have a thin skin and can dish it out and can't take it.

When Fox News reporter Charlie Gaspariono, did not like Greenwich Time reporter Teri Buhl calling him a gasbag and mentioning the street he lived on, he went ballistic calling her immediate editor, Hearst Newspaper Editor David McCumber and Hearst Newspaper President Steven Swartz, in an effort to get her fired.

Greenwich Roundup was angry at hypicrite like Fox New reporter Charlie Gasparino trying to censor news reports about him and published 03/21/10 Fox News Boy Charlie Gasparino Has No Comment About Teri Buhl's Firing At The Greenwich Time When Greenwich Roundup Called Him Up .

The First Time Ex-Greenwich Time Editor Bruce Hunter Had Hearst Corporation calling demanding that Greenwich Roundup take post down. I said get out of here. This clown is in the public domain, he is the editor of a daily newspaper in one of the wealthiest communities in America.

If Charlie Gasparino and Bruce Hunter can't take the heat, they should get out of the kitchen.

And the same goes for you Jeff.


Your even featured on the Wikipedia pages of others.

In fact, this page, under the heading of "Where Are They Now" we hind the following....

"Former OM/PD Jeff "Jeffrey Jay" Weber is Executive Vice-President/part owner of the Business TalkRadio Network and the Lifestyle TalkRadio Network in Greenwich CT, a position he has held since 2002."

Technically, I could say I think President Obama, Joe Lieberman and Chris Dodd are "hustling" us and none of them could do a damn thing about, because they are public figures.

Jeff you and I could both join the tea party and call the president a Nazi, even though he is not.

Sam Romeo can get on WGCH and call our Commander and Chief a socialist, and the president can not do a damn thing about. If Whitehouse Press Secretary Robert Gibbs calls Sam Romeo and says....

"I am surprised that you have called our president a socialist and I have to formally request that you refrain from that characterization of Barack Obama"
You and Sam Romeo would tell Gibbs to go jump in the Mianus river.

I understand that you don't like the word hustler used with your name, and I am really trying not to use that word when I refer to you, but I keep getting the feeling that you are misleading me.

For Example, I feel hustled when you write ....

"Regarding your comments regarding WCTE: Again, our company never had anything to do with a station with that call letters nor did I ever see a story that referred to our operating of 540 AM with those call letters. We operated that station for three years, but it was sold to another company a few years ago. We never owned it."

Jeffrey, Jeffery, Jeffery please stop tring to hustle Greenwich Roundup.
When Greenwich Roundup goes to Google and types in "Jeff Weber WTCE" he finds this listing....

"Metter and Weber "bring a professionalism to WGCH that it was never blessed with before," Boyle said.

While Metter is committed to local radio, he does have his sights set on being a major player in the industry. Besides acquiring two national networks, Business TalkRadio also sealed a deal to buy the Long Island station it currently operates, WCTE 540 AM, for $9 million. "

The Stamford Advocate article also says ....

"Then, last December, Metter and Weber made their small radio business bigger by buying Liberty Broadcasting Network, which was owned by telecommunications company IDT Corp. The deal gave Business TalkRadio certain assets of Liberty Broadcasting, including the network's 400 affiliate agreements and host contracts.

IDT, a publicly traded company whose core business is telecommunications, made a $2.5 million investment in the Business TalkRadio Network and become a minority shareholder in the company.

The acquisition had a tremendous upside for the business, said Weber. "We had talked for a long time about creating a lifestyles radio network," he said. But starting from scratch is very expensive. By buying an established network with affiliates and personalities in place, it is quite easy to expand it into a 24/7 network, Weber said.

Metter and Weber expanded the programming and named the new network Lifestyle TalkRadio.

With two networks and plans to go public, Business TalkRadio is now looking for a bigger headquarters. The WGCH building is full, forcing Metter to put some of the Lifestyle network's studio operations at the Long Island station."

But Jeff you don't stop misleading and hustling Greenwich Roundup readers there.
You then write ...

"You spoke about my "recent bonus of $6,500." Wish I new about that: I haven't received a bonus in that amount nor any bonus in any amount in at least two years."
Jeffrey, Jeffrey, Jeffrey please stop trying to husle me.

You know that your company Map VI Aqusitions has has a long history of filing legally required SEC reports up to two years late. So when Greenwich Roundup says recent he means the most recent SEC document on file.

However, Jeff I did find a more recent and detailed SEC document that indicates that you are right and recently your bonuses were not $6,500. - THE BONUSES WERE OVER $ 30,000.

In 2007, you got a cah bonus of 38,467.03 and a stock bonus of 30,000 shares along with automobile expenses of 9,450.76.

In 2008, you got a cah bonus of 32,163 and a stock bonus of 35,000 shares along with automobile expenses of 9,964.56.

This was all on top of a yearly compensation of $134,000.


Jeff you said .....

"In the past, I've respected your blog for digging into stories. And I've told you so on occasion. However, digging for the truth and trying to create the impression I'm a "hustler" or money grubbing individual because I work with someone who was arrested is an unfair characterization.

You don't know me...you don't know who I am or anything else about my character. To denigrate it and me is wrong. I have worked hard all my life to earn the kind of compensation I do. And I'm not embarrassed by it."

Jeff, Greenwich Roundup is not denigrating your level of compensation, but he thinks you and Michael Metter should be ashamed of how you have earned your compensation.

A lot of folks, just might get left holding the bag with Map VI Aqusition AKA Blue Star Media AKA Business Talk Radio Network. I just hope none of WGCH's or Business Talk Radio employees have any of this toxic stock put away for retirement.

Jeff you need to be accountable to these people who work for you and to the minority shareholders of Map VI Aqusitions.

Jeff you say ....

"You also responded to one of my comments and asked: "Are you saying that you have abstained from voting your 6.38% of Map VI acquisitions? As we are not a publicly traded company, there are no calls for votes. Many of your comments and statements are predicated on our being a public company;we are not. So again, I repeat:

I am not a member of the board of directors and therefore have never voted on matters decided by it."

Jeff you are listed as the Eecutive Vice President and thus a Corporate officer who reported To CEO and President Micheal Metter at Map VI Aqusitions.

Jeff you also say that...

"I am surprised that you refer to me as Chief Operating Officer of the company. I am not nor have I ever been."

Jeff I refer to you as the Chief Operating Officer because you are the corporate officer responsible for managing the day-to-day activities of Map VI Acquisition and for operations management (OM) of WGCH and The Business Talk Radio network. As COO you are one of the highest-ranking members of an organization's senior management, you monitor the daily operations of the company and reporting to the top executive officer, Greenwich Con Man Michael Metter, who is the chief executive officer (CEO) of Map Vi Acquisition AKA Blue Star Media AKA Business Talk Radio.

===============================
Please send your comments, news tips and press releases to GreenwichRoundup@gmail.com

Jeff if you are not the Chief Operations Officer, then which other Map VI Acquisitions corporate officer is the COO.

SEC Documents only lists two other corporate officers for Map VI Acquisition

1. Michael Metter who is the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

2. Joy Marshall who is the Chief Financial Officer (CFO)

Jeff, it looks like that only leaves you to be the day to day operations manager of Map VI Acquisition AKA Blue Star Media, AKA, Business Talk Radio Network.

Jeff if you were not in charge of the day to day operations management of this company, then who was?

Jeff, as you well know, Map VI Acquisition, Inc. was incorporated in the state of Delaware on November 22, 2006. In Delaware you can have one man corporations, and Micheal Metter's fellow con man Steve Moskowitz was the President/Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operations Officer, and Chairman of the the one man Board of directors.

Steve Moskowitz approved a Map VI Acquisition Merger Agreement on January 31, 2009.

Steve Moskowitz, was Map VI Acquisition President until his resignation immediately after the Closing. Upon Mr. Moskowitz’s resignation, the following individuals were appointed as officers:

Michael Metter, President and CEO

Joy Marshall, Chief Financial Officer

Jeff Weber Executive Vice President And COO.

But Jeff you don't have to take my word that you are the chief Operating Officer of Map VI Acquisition. Lets Look at a Map VI Acquisition filing that made on you behalf byRichard Friedman, Esq.

And I Quote ....

"JEFF WEBER EXECUTIVE VICE-PRESIDENT

Mr. Weber serves as Executive Vice President of the Network. He has more than 30 years of experience in the radio industry, including 20 as a general manager in markets including Albany, NY. In addition, he has owned stations in Logan, Utah and Amsterdam, New York. From 1999 to 2001, he worked as a local sales manager for WTTS-FM and WGCL-AM in Indianapolis. From 2001 to 2002, he worked as General Sales Manager for WZBA-FM in Baltimore. Mr. Weber managed two radio properties for Metter Broadcasting/Sage Broadcasting from 1985 to 1987. His background also includes several years as a program director in the early part of his career. He is currently a member of the Broadcast Cable Financial Management Association.

Mr. Weber is primarily responsible for the day-in day-out operations of both the networks and the four radio stations."

Jeff did you lie to the SEC when you told them that you were "responsible for the day-in day-out operations" of Map VI Acquisition.

Jeff I guess that is why you get the Big bucks at WGCH and Map VI Acquisition.

Finally Jeff I will try and clear up a few final issue that you raise.

Jeff you say ...

"Regarding the network studios located at WGCH, I would suggest your research is a bit flawed as our network studios and offices have been located in Stamford for about four years. I resent your statement that I am trying to hustle you. I cordially invite you to stop by at a time convenient to both of us so I can give you a tour."

Jeff I did see references to 401 Shippan Avenue, Stamford, CT 06902

However, I was a bit unsure of the address, Greenwich Con Man Micheal Metter has had a history of using fake addresses in the past

I based my comments from personal experience, years ago I used to listen to radio show called computer America on WGCH, this show was a part of both the so-called Business and Lifestyle talk networks.

The host of the show was a fellow named Craig Crossman, and he had a co-host named Mark. There was a giveaway and I won a prize. Mr. Crossman seemed ecstatic, because I was listening on "WGCH 1490 AM the flagship station of the Business Talk radio network".

Mr. Crossman, told me to stay on the line and to wait and give my personal; information off the air. I got to talking to the guy who was taking my personal information and he told me he was operating both the WGCH board and the business talk radio board. Now this sounds like the Business Talk Radio board and WGCH board were being operated out of one room.

I saved a copy of that Computer America episode and I think I still have it on one of my backup hard disks.

Now I will grant you that at this time WGCH was in the shadow of the old Food Emporium on Putnam avenue and you have since moved.

You have repeated gone on and on about the new 1,500 square foot WGCH offices, but no one is that impressed with the size of your studios.

This is about the size of a neighborhood deli here in Greenwich. Most bank branches in town that are bigger than 15,000 square feet.

If your offer still stands, I would accept your offer of a tour of the Stamford facility.

Lastly, Jeff you say....

"Concerning your comments about WGCH's failure to report on the arrest of the two principles of Spongetech, again you are incorrect. We DID report on it. It aired throughout our morning newscast on Thursday, May 6, 2010 and again throughout the day during the Noon and afternoon newscasts."

If this is true I did not hear this. If Greenwich Police Chief David Ridberg had been arrested by the FBI aqnd held on a two million dollar bail I am sure I would have heard in great detail.

Could you please provide an audio file of your coverage of Micheal Metter being arrested and being given a two million dollar bail?

05/08/10 WGCH's Jeff Weber Responds To Greenwich Roundup's Articles About Michael Metter And Map VI Acquisitions

Jeff Weber said...

With regard to your article concerning my involvement with Blue Star Media Group, I'd like to offer a few corrections:


First, I am not a "major" stockholder in the company. My stock holdings as outlined in your article are of a minority interest and pale in comparison to those who own much more than I. In fact, you even mention several individuals who own 7-32% of the stock. My holdings are even less than the 7% of another individual. That is hardly major.


I am not a member of the board of directors of the company and as such had no input or decision making authority with regard to the name change of Map VI, its implementation or anything related to it.


Any decision for this company to go public would be made by the board, not me.


You identified me in your headline as a "hustler." Would you please clarify who exactly I have "hustled?"


WGCH does not broadcast from a "small room packed with high-tech equipment." Our 1500 square foot facility may be unassuming but it gets the job done.


Your comment that WGCH is a "money losing radio station" that "lost even more listeners" is interesting. What information do you have to back that up?


The description of WGCH as World's Greatest Communications Hoax is an insult to the hard working employees of the radio station.


You reference radio station WCTE as one we "sealed a deal to buy" but I am not familiar with that radio station. I believe you got the call letters wrong.


You indicate several times in your article that I planned to "sucker gullible investors."


I am deeply offended by this statement for which there is no basis in fact. Additionally, I have never been involved in the recruitment of investors in any shape or form.


Your efforts to align me with two individuals who have been charged with a variety of illegal activities is an unfair characterization of me.


Those who know me, know that the statements about me do not reflect who I am. Those who don't know me, will unfortunately have to make their own decision based on the way you defined me in an article that seems "out to get" me as one of my friends described it.


Why you would choose to do that, I have no idea.


Comment::


Dear Jeff. Weber,


I will try and respond to your statements and questions as best that I can,


The goal of these articles is to get at the truth.


Jeff Weber states:


First, I am not a "major" stockholder in the company. My stock holdings as outlined in your article are of a minority interest and pale in comparison to those who own much more than I. In fact, you even mention several individuals who own 7-32% of the stock. My holdings are even less than the 7% of another individual. That is hardly major.


Mr. Weber, the information comes from the SEC, who under Federal law and regulations considers you to be a major share holder. Out of the 112 share holders in Map VI Acquisition (AKA Blue Star Media) only a handful of investors or owners are considered by the federal government to be major shareholders, and you are one of the lucky few.


Federal laws dictate that your employment agreement and salary and bonuses must be filed in SEC documents. I know that recently you have gotten bonuses of about $6,500, but I have no clue of what a minority share holder like Mike Weber may or may not get from Map VI Acquisitions.


For all I know someone like Tony Savino, may or may not, hold or have been rewarded with Map Vi Acquisition Stock..


If he is shareholder in Map IV Acquisitions, I would not know, because he would be a "minority share holder" with certain protections under the law.


If Tony Savino, owned Map VI Acquisition Share, I would not know the deails of his employment contact, because he would be a "minority share holder".


It is very hard to determine the exact percentage that you own of Map VI Acquisitions, because the SEC reports are habitually very late and the numbers keep changing.


As best, as I can tell there are about 7,200,000 outstanding shares and you control about 460,000 shares or about 6.38% of the company.


If Greenwich Roundup controlled about 6.38% of the Hearst Corporation, he would have a Greenwich backcounrty estate, a second home in the Hamptons and a third home in Florida.


Greenwich Roundup could even have Hearst Newspaper Editor David McCumber fired and Greenwich Time investigative reporter Teri Buhl rehired.


This way Greenwich Roundup would not have to spend days reading boring government reports.


Jeff Weber Also States:


I am not a member of the board of directors of the company and as such had no input or decision making authority with regard to the name change of Map VI, its implementation or anything related to it.


Any decision for this company to go public would be made by the board, not me.


Dear Mr. Weber, At this time it is unclear how your shares have been used in corporate governance or decision making. Are you saying that you have abstained from voting your 6.38 % of Map VI Acquisitions?


Are you saying that you received no shareholders notices from Map VI Acquisition?


Are you saying that none of your 460,000 shares were never voted in support of Michael Metter or his other con artist buddies?


Mr. Weber, from your public statements you seem to be highly involved in Map VI acquisition\s accumulation of money losing media properties.


Here are statements from just one Greenwich Time article....


"The acquisition had a tremendous upside for the business,"said Weber.

"We had talked for a long time about creating a lifestyles radio network," said Weber.

"Starting from scratch is very expensive. By buying an established network with affiliates and personalities in place, it is quite easy to expand it into a 24/7 network," Weber said.


Jeff Weber Said:


You identified me in your headline as a "hustler." Would you please clarify who exactly I have "hustled?"


Mr. Weber, "hustler" is a strong word and if it will make you feel any better. I will withdraw the word.


Mr. Weber, if I had been one of the 100 plus minority investors in the "blind trust" known as Map VI Acquisitions, then I would probably be feeling hustled by the major share holders as I read in the newspaper that two of the major share holders were just arrested by the FBI and had to put up a total of 4 million dollars in bail money.


If I was a WGCH employee and part of my compensation package that you gave me included some of this toxic stock or a 401 K with this toxic stock, I would be feeling hustled.


I hope that none of the paid on air WGCH personalities or board operators are left depending on this stock to help with their retirement.


Mr. Webber, please tell me that no Map VI Acquisitions or its subsidiaries current or former employees hold none of these worthless penny stock shares.


I am so afraid that these folks they might be the part of the 100 minority shareholders.


Jeff Weber says ...


WGCH does not broadcast from a "small room packed with high-tech equipment." Our 1500 square foot facility may be unassuming but it gets the job done.


Mr. Weber, the entire quote refereed to the "two networks' syndicated programming" was. it stated "It's all transmitted from a small room packed with high-tech equipment in the unassuming WGCH headquarters"


Now Jeff, don't try and hustle me now.


Just how many rooms do you give the network board operators to use at WGCH?


Now remember there are not many rooms in your 1,500 square foot facility.


However, I will say that one person has since told me that the network board operator might now be in a room in Stamford somewhere.


Jeff Weber said.....


Your comment that WGCH is a "money losing radio station" that "lost even more listeners" is interesting.


What information do you have to back that up?


Mr. Weber, are you trying to hustle me?


Just how much money do you claim that WGCH is netting.


Your company's accountants and lawyers have filed documents with the SEC saying that the whole shebang is losing over one million dollars a year.


Are you trying to say that WGCH is a money making machine?


Are you trying to tell me that WGCH is making so much money, that you just might change the call letters to WATM ?


Now before, you answer, I should remind you that Greenwich Roundup's website logs show that the SEC visits this blog and anything you say can be used in a court of law - because you are a major share holder, who is acting as chief operations officer of WGCH.


If WGCH was truly gaining listeners and earning huge profits you would have just quoted the numbers in your responce.


Once again I feel like I am being hustled.


Jeff Weber says ....


The description of WGCH as World's Greatest Communications Hoax is an insult to the hard working employees of the radio station.


Mr. Weber, I wish that I could claim that I made up, "World's Greatest Communications Hoax", but I have heard that joke over and over and over.


Jeff Weber says .....


You reference radio station WCTE as one we "sealed a deal to buy" but I am not familiar with that radio station. I believe you got the call letters wrong.


Dear Mr. Weber, the reference was.....


"Besides acquiring two national networks, Business TalkRadio also sealed a deal to buy the Long Island station it currently operates, WCTE 540 AM, for $9 million."


Mr. Weber, the information comes from a Greenwich Time article that you are quoted in and most likely supplied the background information to.


The Greenwich Time article was titled,

"Greenwich, Conn., Radio Station Expands As Owner Plans for Future" and was published on July 6th of 2005.


You can go down to the Greenwich library and read it if you want.

.Now, Jeff I once again feel like you are trying to misled or hustle the public and I with this you never heard of WCTE.


If the Greenwich Time reporter made a typo, then just come out and say so.


Did you or Micheal Metter lie to the Greenwich Time about the claim that, "Business TalkRadio also sealed a deal to buy the Long Island station it currently operates, WCTE 540 AM, for $9 million."


I just spent about two hours searching the internet and I have discovered that there is a WLIE (540 AM) licensed to serve Islip,New York. The station has had a long history on the bottom end of the AM dial. During its early years, it was a daytime-only station, with Christian programming, using the WLIX call letters. Starting in 1983, it was permitted to broadcast after dark, at a reduced power. In the mid-1990s, it was WLUX with a pop standards format format. In 2002 it flipped formats to become first a talk radio station and then a business talk radio station.


Jeff, I don't know if the station was ever called WCTE or something similar, the only reference I have is a Greenwich Time article that you were featured in.


Maybe you guys lost The station, because I did see a web page that said in 2008, a station with that frequency in Islip,New York started airing Spanish language religious shows.

.

The station is being operated by Principal Broadcasting Network under a LMA from Long Island Multimedia in anticipation of a $14 million purchase.


A LMA is a local marketing agreement (or local management agreement, or LMA) is an agreement in which one company agrees to operate a radio station or TV station owned by another licensee. In essence, it is a sort of lease or franchise.


Under Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations, the licensee is still completely legally responsible for the station, including fines for profanity outside of safe harbor hours. An LMA must also include the entire station's facilities (studio and all), as the FCC prohibits subleasing of only the frequency rights or transmitter plant.


LMAs have been criticized because they could allow companies to circumvent FCC rules on how many radio or television stations they can control in any one market. However, the FCC addressed this issue and now stations under LMA are counted toward the ownership cap in a given market

Jeff, once again I feel like you and Michael Metter are trying to mislead and hustle the public.


Did you guys lose the Islip, New York radio station or did you just rent out the place in an effort to stem the losses at Map Vi Acquisitions and the Business Talk radio network?



Jeff Weber says ....


You indicate several times in your article that I planned to "sucker gullible investors."


I am deeply offended by this statement for which there is no basis in fact.



Additionally, I have never been involved in the recruitment of investors in any shape or form.


Your efforts to align me with two individuals who have been charged with a variety of illegal activities is an unfair characterization of me.


Mr. Weber, I did not align you with Micheal Metter and the other con men. You aligned yourself with these persons now charged with felonies. I just reported the story.


In fact, you could have sought to leave as the red flags have been popping up over the last few years.


You have decided to remain aligned with a con man like Michael Metter, because it is much to lucrative for you.


Greenwich Roundup only has one eye and he can see that you and Michael Metter were putting lipstick on this dog of a money losing company in hopes of having an penny stock IPO.


Moreover, if the FBI had not interrupted Micheal Metter's Pump and Dump plans for the recently renamed Map VI Acquisitions, you would have profited quite handsomely.


Jeff Weber says....


Those who know me, know that the statements about me do not reflect who I am.


Those who don't know me, will unfortunately have to make their own decision based on the way you defined me in an article that seems "out to get" me as one of my friends described it.


Why you would choose to do that, I have no idea.


Mr. Weber, Greenwich roundup has no reason to be "out to get" you.


Greenwich Roundup is only out to get at the truth.


Greenwich Roundup has chosen to focus and report on this story, because the local newspapers and WGCH has chosen not to focus on the story.


The WGCH "News Team" showed its lack of integrity when it refused to report that it's owners were arrested by the FBI.


If Rupert Murdock was arrested by the FBI and released on a 2 Million Dollar bail bond, the story would be on Fox News, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Post.


Greenwich Roundup still remembers back in the early 1990's when Abe Hirschfeld e took over ownership of The New York Post, firing editor Pete Hamill, and infuriating the staff.


Who can forget the classic New York Post article about Able Hirshfield's takeover at the post.
