I had major surgery June 20th and it took a full week of some serious pain medication to come back to earth. In fact it took 8 days to totally rid myself of wild dreams and hallucinations.
One real bad hallucination was that Chuckee Cheeze, the editor of tabloid news and media outlet for Catalyst, received an award for Freedom of information requests and First Amendment Rights.
Courier wins Freedom of Information – First Amendment award for Fairhope reporting
Courier wins Freedom of Information – First Amendment award for Fairhope reporting
The Courier has won the Alabama Press Association’s prestigious Freedom of Information – First Amendment Award for its reporting on the city of Fairhope. Managing Editor Cliff McCollum won the …
The Alabama Press Association awarded Chuckee the award for an article that turned out to be bogus. All allegations Chuckee listed turned out not to hold any water. In fact Chuckee has written numerous articles about the Fairhope and the Mayor and every damn article has fallen on it’s face. That does not matter, what matters, is that Chuckee is the official print media representative of Catalyst.
CHUCKIE CHEEZE | THE RIPP REPORT / BALDWIN COUNTY LEGAL EAGLE
April fools joke? No sadly this is how journalism is portrayed in Baldwin County. We have no print media coverage on the eastern shore, only bad tabloid news. Baldwin County has had some very good…
One thing Chuckee loves to do while practicing journalism and attacking Fairhope and the Mayor is to call Fairhope City Hall for an official comment on his article’s. Problem is, he calls 10 minutes before publication, then he reports the Mayor had no comment.
Part of the award was for freedom of information request he made from Fairhope. When I heard this I knew I was hallucinating. Chuckee has been provided information on many topics of corruption in Fairhope, by the Ripp Report, and he never attempted to research any of them. A closer look reveals that the persons in question were all Catalyst.
What about the information Chuckee received from Catalyst members and City Council persons that was not public information, received through back doors, not through FOIA requests? Information he received that supported his spin for the day, provided by Catalyst to support Catalyst.
The Ripp Report has obtained thousands of documents, over the last 12 years, through FOIA requests, never have we accepted information passed through the back door of Council Chambers.
The second part of Chuckee’s award had to do with your Constitutional Right of Free Speech.
Lawsuit alleges Fairhope Council President denied citizen’s free speech
The Fairhope Courier was a fixture in Fairhope, part of the city’s history, when it was sold to tabloid news and moved from Fairhope, it became simply The Courier. Chuckee is a disgrace to journalism and the Alabama Press Association needs to vet it’s awards more closely.
What do all these subjects have in common?
Sherry Sullivian, Jenniffer Fiddler, Pandora Heathcoat, Jack Burrell and the Fairhope Airport, Robert Brown and his sweetheart deal with The Fairhope Art Center, Kevin Boone and his many llc’s, Jack Burrell police record and pending Federal lawsuit centered around Freedom of Speech. Fairhope City Council members sharing confidential information with Catalyst. CATALYST
Chuckee never touches anything that may shine a bad light on Catalyst and all the above involve Catalyst.
The Courier, which is the Catalyst media outlet, supported only Catalyst candidates in the 2018 primary and run-off.
Only in Alabama can you receive a Press award for a bogus story. That was not enough for Chuckee he had to add insult to injury when he accepted the award and said:
“These stories, like all of the stories we work on across our newspapers, were the result of hard work, research and the continued pursuit of the truth,” McCollum said. “While it’s certainly nice to be recognized for our reporting on this in the form of this award, we do what we do for our readers, to make sure they have the news and information they need to make good decisions and have informed opinions.”
“Pursuit of the Truth” Chuckee does not know what the truth is.
Maybe the whole thing was a HALLUCINATION!
So your lawsuit with Burrell is going to trial?
it is up to jack
As long as the City pays for his lawyers then this suit can go on forever
Not in Federal Court! There will be an ending and Jack and the whole council will end up looking like they just fell in the sewer trap! Can’t wait. All of you need to make sure if you are not already taking blood pressure meds to get some. If y’all stroke out! Dammit, that sounds good doesn’t it! I’ll wager one of you pricks do before it’s over. My money is on Boone and Burrell 2nd. Won’t be anything lost but a bunch of grumpy, dishonest assholes, who all get the prize for screwing up Fairhope everyday they breathe. Funk, hell you might stroke out just finding out the questions that these fools are going to have to answer under oath. Then comes me. Can’t wait!!!! It’s gonna be Sweet!!!!!!!!
Huge fecal discharge in mobile bay. Yuck
I’ll match what their offer to Ripp for up to quite a sum. Jack Burrell is a prick and is flanked by peckerheads who think they are actually somebody in this world. Boone, I’ll see you in hell before this lawsuit gets settled. Do you kiss your mother with that disgusting mouth. Every time I have gotten near you, your breath smells like cow shit or Burrell’s Organ. I have submitted my question for consideration for you when you take your deposition. I’d pay a $1000 to watch you scream and shout, because your gonna lie about a few things that I have the true answers to. Don’t worry. Jack is on fire and will crash burn all by himself. The big engineer of Alabama. Bring that Licence with you Jack to your deposition. Your about as much as a licensed engineer as you a heart surgeon. But it’s on tape that you are a valid licensed engineer. Can’t wait.
You weren’t hallucinating. The meds yiu were given must have been placebos. You experienced reality
Nitrogen narcosis man
Paul, I hope your recovery is going well. Your hallucinations may be occurring due to the persistent tin foil hat you wear on your head. Aside from your writing style, the greatest travesty of this article, and many of your others, is your fascination with spinning the facts of current events through your conspiracy seeking lenses. Chuck E. Cheese (proper spelling mind you), as you call him, has consistently covered Mayor Wilson in a fair fashion since she entered office. Her lack of understanding of, or her complete unwillingness to, follow city policies, procedures, and LAWS continues to inhibit her ability to govern effectively. Had she not assaulted a city employee, had she not wrongfully fired city employees, had she not hired Elias Technologies to spy on city employees, had she not attempted to circumvent the authority of the Fairhope City Council, among countless other offenses, Chuck E. Cheese would have nothing to cover! Had Obama done any of the same things on a level parallel to that of the Office of the President of the United States, I’m sure you’d be thrilled to have someone like Chuck E. Cheese hot on his trail. Then again, fairness and logic are lost when your tin foil hat is resting tightly on your head. I hope the meds start healing your pain, and maybe your ego, when you start to realize your Mayor Wilson is deserves fair, objective coverage. Chuck E. Cheese is providing that level of coverage. Are you?
Spoken like a true Catalyst.
Even Lagniappe’d film at the Nappie awards poked fun at GCN’s demise. Chuckie doesn’t cover news or facts, just propaganda and lies. Makes you wonder what the motivation is. Does he get paid to do it from special interest or does he feel like he’s making friends? Either way, it’s sad.
Lagniappe has tried to fill the vacuum of the Mobile Register going away and GCN being a shill for Catalyst. Lagniappe has done pretty good considering the load that was put on it.
I no longer read the Mobile Paper, aka Shoe Station Sampler, nor do I read GCN, also known as the Catalyst Courier.
What’s more, Lagniappe is free and I donot have to pay for ads or stilted fake journalism
Lagniappe is still not covering the real facts. Used to be better investigative stories.
Chuckie thinks he is making friends Much like a mouse making friends with a cat. In the end he will eventually be dinner
Chuckee has no friends and no date and it’s because he can’t open his mouth without telling the truth. I actually feel sorry for the Bastard boy!
You are disgusting! Leave personal attacks out of the conversation. You have no idea what you are talking about and this is what you come up with.
Journalism in Alabama is a gay female governor.
It don’t exist.
Dear Biggest Fan, please link or provide the articles that McCollum has written that showed the Mayor in anything but an unflattering light. And don’t try to spin it as though she’s done nothing in the last almost two years to benefit Fairhope because if you do that, then we’ll all know your post was actually written by McCollum himself. Thanks.
Sounds to me that the employees that were fired needed to have someone spy on them. They forgot Timmy lost and he was no longer in charge. If Timmy’s campaign manager had no spent so much time watching old cowboy movies he might have won.
I was stunned at this award. Gulf Coast News Today only ever covers one side of any story and that appears to the that of the City Council. Also, GCN does not offer any ability to comment on these slanted stories. Quite recently, it ran a story expressing the shock and dismay of the Council because Mayor Wilson had spoken in favor of Fresh Start Fairhope and rebuked her for using her position to inform voters. Nowhere in the article did it mention that Robert Brown had, before this, written a strong message on his Facebook page “Robert Brown for our Hometown” disparaging the very idea of having a City Manager because, in his opinion, the current system is perfect. Nothing from this Council nor from this “News”paper will surprise me again.
I bet more people read Ripp than read the Courier.
Hey Ripp, you get about 12,000 clicks a week, right? I wonder how many Courier papers are read.
Ripp stir is the Dan Rather of the Eastern Whore!
Chuck be trippin.
Needs to rub one out.
