This Just In ....
Published 12:35 p.m., Saturday, September 24, 2011David McCumber, editor of The Advocate and Greenwich Time and editorial director of the Hearst Connecticut Media Group, was charged with driving under the influence in Wilton early Saturday morning.
McCumber, 59, of 436 Hurlbutt St., Wilton, also was charged with failure to drive in the proper lane after he was pulled over at 1:30 a.m. on Seeley Road.
The Hearst Connecticut Media Group also includes the Connecticut Post, Danbury News-Times and seven weekly newspapers.
He is to appear at state Superior Court in Norwalk Oct. 4....
To Mr. McCumber's Credit, He Didn't Try To Cover It Up That He Was Driving The Wrong Way Down The Road ....
Details of the incident were obtained from the citation provided by McCumber. Wilton police said they could not provide a copy of the incident report since their records office is closed weekends.
BUT WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM A DIM WITTED HEARST NEWSPAPER EDITOR THAT WANTED TO FIRE JOURNALIST HUNTER STOCKTON THOMPSON .....
At One Time, Before He Was Sent To The Hearst Newspaper Backwater, Known As The Greenwich Time, David McCumber Was The High Flying San Framsico Examiner Assistant Managing Editor That Was Responsible For Editing Hunter Thompson's Column.
Yes, drunk as a skunk McCumber wanted to fire Hunter S. Thompson, the creator of Gonzo journalism, a style of reporting where reporters involve themselves in the action to such a degree that they become central figures of their stories.
Clueless Editor David McCumber constantly bitched and moaned about the journalist and author who wrote The Rum Diary (1998), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1971) and Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72 (1973).
Thompson started writing about pornography and wrote an article on a San Francisco strip club.
As part of his research, in the spring of 1985 he spent evenings at the Mitchell Brothers O'Farrell Theater striptease club in San Francisco and his experience there eventually evolved into a full-length novel tentatively titled The Night Manager. Neither the novel nor the article has been published.
Thompson was a writer for the San Francisco Examiner from the mid-1980s until the end of that decade.
Thompson's editor at the Examiner, was dim witted Hearst Editor David McCumber, who would eventually steal Thompson's idea and make a mint writing a Mitchell brothers, while it he was stabbing Thompson in the back, reportedly telling Hearst Corporation executives that he was "deeply disappointed" in the quality of Thompson's Examiner columns.
No wonder Hunter Thompson ended his life with a self inflicted gun shot wound to the head.
You've got a no talent bum like editor David McCumber, whining about your work and then turning around a using what he has learned to write a book and get promoted as editor of Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
Just like at the Greenwich Time, McCumber proceeded to run the Post-Intelligencer, into the ground.
In 2006 the P-I became the subject of a complaint to the Washington News Council for its reporting. The media watch-dog group ruled against the P-I.
David McCumber and the P-I chickened out and declined to participate in the proceedings, and opted instead to give a very long one sided reply on its website.
P-I editor David McCumber, often took on the holy task of praising his own paper to the skies.
Well, on January 9, 2009, the Hearst Corporation announced that it was closing the iconic P-I after losing money every single year that David McCumber was editor.
On March 17, 2009, the P-I cease to publish and Hearst sent David McCumber to Connecticut to destroy what was left of the money losing Greenwich Time.
Since then David McCumber, has proceeded to run the Greenwich Time so far int0 the ground, that it will soon be the Hearst Corporation's first newspaper in China.
AND NO WONDER FAILED HEARST NEWSPAPER EDITOR DAVID McCUMBER HATES THE REPORTER THAT LOCAL REAL ESTATE BLOGGER CHRIS FOUNTAIN SAID WAS THE "HUNTER S. THOMPSON OF GREENWICH"

Greenwich Roundup Woke Up This Morning And Started Doing One Of His Crazy Dances That He Does After He Looks At His Previous Days Web Stats.
Today's Dance Was Called The Michael Metter - WGCH Dance , Because The Story About The Local Radio Station Owner Sent Greenwich Roundup 4,901 Unique Web Visitors Yesterday.
That's Right, Read Our Web Stats And Weep Greenwich Time Editor David McCumber.
Last Year And Earlier This Year Greenwich Roundup Sent A Great Deal Of Web Traffic To The Greenwich Time.
Whenever There Was A Hearst Newspaper Story About Greenwich Over 90% Of Greenwich Roundup's Links And Web Traffic Went To The Greenwich Time.
In Fact, Greenwich Roundup Sent So Much Traffic To The Greenwich Time, That The Greenwich Time Jumped On To The Audit Bureau Of Circulation's List Of TheTop 25 U.S. Daily Newspapers With Print and Online Gains.
As The Greenwich Roundup's Web Traffic Grew At Double Digits, The Greenwich Time's Web Traffic Also Grew At Double Digit Rates.
The Greenwich Time Grew So Much That For Two ABC Reporting Periods It Was One Of The 25 The Fastest Growing Newspapers In America.
In The Fall Of 2008, The Greenwich Time Grew An Incredible 22.13 Percent And Was The Fastest Growing Newspaper In America For The First Time In It's Publishing History.
The Greenwich Time Print Circulation Had Once Again Declined In 2008 , But The Online Traffic Grew So Much The Paper Became The Fastest Growing Newspaper In America
Then In The Spring Of 2009 The Greenwich Time Shocked The Newspaper Industry Once Again By Remaining The Fastest Growing Newspaper In America With An Eye Pooping 30.74% Percent Gain.
The Same Old Story Occurred Again, The Greenwich Time Print Circulation Had Once Again Declined In 2009 , But The Online Traffic Grew So Much The Paper Remained The Fastest Growing Newspaper In America For A Second Six Month Reporting Period.
Greenwich Roundup Also Got A Little Fed Up With Greenwich Time Web Editor Jonathan Lucas.
So Greenwich Roundup Took Action And Cut Back On The Web Traffic He Sent To The Greenwich Time.
Previously, When Ever There Was A Hearst Newspaper Story About Greenwich Over 90% Of The Links And Web Traffic Went To The Greenwich Time.
But Then Greenwich Roundup Started Sending 90% Links To Other Hearst Newspapers Who Printed The Same Story, Or To Local Blogs Who Commented On A Greenwich Time Story.
Then Guess What Happened?
The Greenwich Time Fell Off ABC'S List Of The Top 25 U.S. Daily Newspaper Print and Online Gainers.
Sad But True The Greenwich Time Was No Longer The Fastest Growing Newspaper In America, Because Greenwich Roundup Had Stopped Sending Almost All Of It's Web Traffic To The Local Ungrateful Rag.

Hearst Newspaper Insiders Tell Greenwich Roundup That Tings Got So Bad That Greenwich Time Web Editor Jonathan Lucas Began To Fear That He Might Lose His Job.
Recently, Greenwich Time Web Editor Jonathan Lucas Took Down The Old Greenwich Time Web Site And Put Up A Totally Redesigned Web Site.
But. Greenwich Roundup Hears That Greenwich Time Web Editor Jonathan Lucas' Web Traffic Numbers Are Not That Impressive.
Yesterday, WGCH And SpongeTech Executive Micheal Metter Helped Greenwich Roundup Score 4,901 Unique Web Visitors, But Hardly Any Of That Traffic Went To The Greenwich Time.

There Were A Few Other Links, But Not One Link Sent Greenwich Time Web Visitors To The Greenwich Time.
Hearst Newspaper's Did Get A Link From Greenwich Roundup's Buddy Robo Blogger At The Greenwich Topix Message Board That Link Went To The Connecticut Post .
As Greenwich Roundup Set A New All Time Web Traffic Record Of 4,901 Unque Web Visitors On The Michael Metter Story, Not One Link To The Greenwich Time Was Used In The Greenwich Roundup Post.
In The Old Days Before David McCumber, Niel Vidgor And Jonathan Lucas Upset Greenwich Roundup The Greenwich Time Would Have Been The First And Main Link.
Hearst Newspaper President Steven Swartz Couldn't Believe What A Wonder Kid Greenwich Time Web Editor Jonathan Lucas Was.
In March, Greenwich Time Web Editor Jonathan Lucas Will Once Again Not Be The Webmaster Of The Fastest Growing Newspaper In America.
In Fact, You Read It Here First, Greenwich Time Web Editor Jonathan Lucas Will Not Even Make The ABC List Of The Top 25 U.S. Daily Newspaper Print and Online Gainers.
Because Greenwich Roundup Will Continue His Practice Of First Taking Hearst Newspaper Stories About Greenwich FromThe Advocate , Connecticut Post , The News-Times Or From The Hearst Weekly Newspapers Such As The Greenwich Citizen , Fairfield Citizen , Westport News And The Darien News .
All Of The Greenwich News Stories Written By Hearst Are Published In Multiple Connecticut Newspapers.
However, Everyday Greenwich Roundup Will Throw Greenwich Time Web Editor Jonathan Lucas A Couple Of Bones By Providing A Couple Of Links To The Greenwich Time.
However, The Days Of Greenwich Roundup Linking To All Of The Hearst Newspaper Reports At The Greenwich Time Will Continue To Be Long Gone.Greenwich Time Web editor Jonathan Lucas' Only Hope Is To Wine, Dine And Pocket Line Greenwich Roundup As He Says, "Mr. Roundup, I Love My Job At The Greenwich Time And I Am Sooooooo Sorry I Upset You. Please, Pretty Please, Send Me Thousands Of Your Website Visitors Everyday."

GHS grants access to neighbor banned from campus for meeting
Public forum on soil contamination: GHS allows homeowner charged in '09 trespassing incident to attend meeting
By Neil Vigdor, Greenwich Time - Staff Writer
The owner of a residential property abutting Greenwich High School who was banned from campus two years ago after he was arrested for trespassing there will be allowed back on the grounds for an upcoming public forum on soil contamination discovered at the site.
Bill Effros appealed to school board members by e-mail Friday to allow him to attend the information session, scheduled for 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 7 in the GHS auditorium.
His property at 41 Old Church Road is adjacent to the school's athletic fields, all but one of which remain closed as a safety precaution after toxins were found this summer during initial construction of a new campus auditorium.
Town Attorney John Wayne Fox sent Effros a reply Friday afternoon telling him the town would temporarily lift the ban, which he said stemmed from the 2009 trespassing incident.
"He is a neighbor," Fox told Greenwich Time. "He has a right to be informed of the process that we are pursuing."
Effros called on the school board to change the meeting location.
"As an abutting neighbor, I clearly have a direct interest in the information disseminated," Effros wrote. "The Town of Greenwich Police have stated I will be arrested if I so much as set foot on the High School property."
Effros was charged with first-degree trespass and breach of peace June 23, 2009, after he refused to leave the high school property on orders of police who found him taking photos and video of construction work there, according to an arrest report.
He still contends that it was his legal right to be at the high school to gather evidence for separate contempt-of-court rulings that he planned to file against the town.....
