08/23/10 Himes asks for last-minute pork

Please note: Greenwich Roundup has for months published press releases from Jim Himes campaign, but Greenwich Roundup was dropped from congressman Jim Himes' email list when we reported that Connecticut Post political writer Jonathan Kantrowitz was plagiarizing from those campaign emails.

E-Updates from the Dan Debicella for Congress Campaign August 23rd, 2010
Debicella for Congress

Himes asks for last-minute pork

Dear friends,

Jim Himes does not understand our nation’s dire fiscal situation. According to the Connecticut Mirror, Jim Himes requested over $50 million in earmarks recently. Washington spending is out-of-control, and Jim Himes seems to think it is an all-you-can-eat buffet. On top of voting for a 22% discretionary spending increase and a $1.4 trillion deficit, Himes is now asking for even more pork barrel spending.

I have said repeatedly that I will neither seek nor accept earmarks, but will instead work to eliminate our deficit by reducing wasteful spending. I believe that all projects should be funded based upon their merit and importance, not in exchange for political favors.

A merit based system like the one I propose would benefit Fairfield County far more than the current wasteful, political approach that Washington has taken year after year.

The list of earmarks in Himes’s latest request is not available on his website, but Himes’s past requests have included funds to study the habitat quality of soft-shell clams and funds to rebuild Bridgeport’s Congress Street Bridge, estimated to cost $50 million – despite the fact that the Washington Street Bridge is just a football field away from the proposed new bridge.

Voters will have a clear choice in November between Jim Himes, who will rubber-stamp spending increases and earmarks, and my vision for eliminating earmarks and reducing spending to eliminate our deficit.
With your help, we can restore fiscal sanity to Washington. A contribution today of $100, $250, or $500 will help us spread the word about Jim Himes and his fiscal irresponsibility.
Thank you for your support. We could not be doing this without you.
All my best,
-Dan

08/23/10 How News Gets Reported In The Fourth Congressional District Of Fairfield County Connecticut

On The Night Of The Democratic Primary Greenwich Roundup Received An Email From Congressman Jim Himes' Campaign Manager Mark Henson That Had The Subject Line Meet Dan Debicella

Greenwich Roundup Took The Middle Of The Road Position And Posted The Campaign Email Raw Word For Word Including Mark Henson's Signature Line.

Greenwich Roundup Let Their Readers See What Was Out There And Left It Up To Those Readers To Decide How To Independently Process What To Think About The Latest Propaganda From Jim Himes' Congressional Campaign.

The Fairfield Minuteman Took What Some Might Call The High Road And Denounced Mud Slinging And Promised To Protect You The Reader From Getting Splattered.....

Stop slinging the mud


Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.


Last week’s primaries for various state and federal offices served the desirable purposes of focusing our attention on the narrowed-down group of candidates who will now vie for our support in the Nov. 2 general election, and eliminating from contention a good number of the mud-slingers who ended up losing.

Unfortunately, some of the mud-slingers ended up winning last week......


....Then there was the “Meet Dan Debicella” email we received last Tuesday night, even before the final votes were counted, from Congressman Jim Himes’ campaign manager. The email called Debicella, who won the GOP nomination for the Fourth District congressional seat, “radical,” “reckless” and “wrong” on the issues, and talked about a “troubling history” stretching back to his college years. No specifics given. Oh, and by the way, send money, “as much as you can afford,” so Himes can defeat this upstart State Senator. On-line donations welcomed.


We weren’t born yesterday (far from it). We know what political argument is, and we know that politicians are prone to exaggeration, especially in a tight campaign. We also know what running scared looks like. And to bring up a candidate’s record in the student assembly in college strikes us as jumping the shark.

Is this the way it’s going to be, boys and girls? Let’s hope not.......

....We won’t use letters that appear to be sent from campaign headquarters — a bunch of supporters gathering in the evening to write letters, saying virtually the same thing, with the only real difference being the name at the end.

.....And we also won’t publish letters whose only purpose is to direct personal attacks on candidates. Letters like these don’t accomplish anything beyond cheapening public discourse.

We welcome letters on the issues, and we look forward to promoting rational debate as the election nears. We hope the candidates do the same.

Hearst Newspaper's Connecticut Post Took The Lowest Of Low Roads By Violating The Journalistic Code Of Ethics And Standards ....

First Connecticut Post Political Writer Jonathan Kantrowitz, Who Is The Very Close Personal Friend Of Lincoln Millstien, Hearst Newspaper's Corporate Executive Of Digital Media, Plagiarized The Jim Himes Entire Fundraising Email Word For Word And Placed His Byline On The Article.

Jonathan Kantrowitz Was So Uncreative, He Even Used The "Meet Dan Debicella" Headline That Jim Himes' Campaign Manager Mark Henson Used.


PLEASE SEE:

Hearst Newspaper's Newspaper's Connecticut Media group Has Suffered From Repeated Job Cuts And Now Heavily Relies On Unpaid And Untrained Journalists And Political Writers Like Jonathan Kantrowitz

08/19/10 Fourth District Congressman Jim Himes And The CT Post Editor Tom Baden Severely Harmed By The Himes / Hearst Newspaper Plagiarism Scandal




Due To Hearst Newspaper President Steven Swartz's Cookie Cutter Method Of Local Journalism Jonathan's Kantrowitz's Plagiarism Has Spread Like A Virus Throughout Hearst Newspaper Websites.

Jonathan Kantrowitz's Plagiarism Also Appears On Danbury News-Times, The Greenwich Time, The Stamford Advocate And Other Hearst News Paper Websites.

MORE INFORMATION:

Due To The Massive Job Cuts At Hearst Newspapers There Just May Be A Corporate Wide Problem With Plagiarism As Journalistic Standards Are Lowered.

Unfortunately, Hearst Newspaper President Steven Swartz Doesn't Have The Journalistic Balls To Insist And Enforce A Strong Code Of Ethics On His Media Properties


PLEASE ALSO SEE:

This Is Where Over 40% Of The Connecticut Post's Political Writers
Meet, Get Their Democratic Talking Points And Often Re-Post Their Devious Hearst Newspaper Articles.....

08/21/10 A Blog Where Bloggers Are Wined Dined And Pocket Lined By Ned Lamont Bitches About Greenwich Time Writer Niel Vigdor's Coverage Of Ned Lamot

Update #2:


Greenwich Roundup Asked Hearst Newspaper Executives (Steven Swartz, Lincoln Millstien And Others), Connecticut Post Editor Tom Baden And Hearst Newspaper Employees At The Danbury News Times, Greenwich Time And The Stamford Advocate For A Comment, But These So-Called Journalists Are Hiding Under Their Desks Hoping The Jim Himes / Hearst Newspaper Scandal Will Just Go Away.

It Also Appears That Jim Himes Campaign Manager Mark Hansen Is Also Gone Into Hiding, Because He Has Repeated Refused To Comment On If He Gave CT Post political Writer Jonathan Kantrowitz Permission To Cut And Paste From Jim Himes' Fundraising Email.

However, Dan Debicella's Campaign Manager Jason Perrillo Has Not Been Afraid To Respond To Any Media And Press Inquiries And Has Responded With Greenwich Roundup's Request For A Comment With The Following.....

We plan to stick to the issues without slant and without spin. Jim Himes’ voting record doesn’t require that we skirt the truth to make a point. His record on the economy and spending is poor and it speaks for itself.
