Is Rhonda Lokeman developing a cult-like following?

Nick at Will Not Be Televised has some strange news about the KC Star web site that suggests former columnist Rhonda "Three Tire" Lokeman may be developing a cult following.
Yet another way The Star is failing is their inability to attract more than the odd quick hit on their online site.


According to Editor & Publisher, The Star doesn’t fall anywhere near the top 30 online newspaper sites that have managed to increase the average time a reader stays on their site.


[With the exception of those people getting their daily Rhonda Lokeman fix... those stats seem to be rising; if you GOOGLE 'Rhonda Lokeman', her still published online Star page is ranked #3. In fact, there seems to be a little Rhonda "Wheelie" Lokeman cult developing. Do you suppose Zieman is counting those page hits as part of The Star's overall stats? Baaaaaad boy, Mark]

the word around the building is that Zieman is so pissed at this blog he's vowed Rhonda's page will be the very last thing to come down off the Scar's web site.

mug shots, anyone?

An alternative McClatchy blog has been launched that is minus the political bs. The administrator of this blog has suppressed the information by deleting posts noting that and then jusitifying it as spam elimination.
Actually he is afraid of losing his audience. Let's see how long it takes for this message to be deleted.

I think you would have to say the classically trained writer, stunt driving, wine connoisseur, has anti-cult members. She wrote columns so disrespectful of President Bush, and Governor Palin, they were shocking. A writer dies a so-called literary death falling on her own drunken quill. It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving chunky, cheeseeeeey jerk.

6:19 You posted about 30 spam comments yesterday that I deleted. I suggest you seek help.

Of course she has. Just like Speed Racer, ted kennedy with boozing, and sharpton and jackson with race bating.

In fact, MNI speedily races or swims away from any real issues, and hires race bating sports people.

So no, nice tight fit here. "Let them eat trickets"

Warning: 6:19 AM -
I vote 'Delete'
This jerk is off-topic. He will never give up. Anyone going to that site needs to have their virus protection set on high.

Let them go promote themselves on the MNI site. Bahahahaha

5:47 Also they are having the Tech people starting to monitor usage on their computers. I'm not surprised that they haven't done this before with all the stuff being posted here.

‘Wheelie’ wrote how great it would be to have someone in the White House that knows how to read. Of course she didn’t mention Obama reads all these soaring speeches from a teleprompter. I wonder if she thinks Obama saying there are 57 states, and that the automobile was invented in the USA, is so intelligent, or he was just being nuanced stupid?

Ending the Red Scar with a picture of the Poster Girl for how far affirmative action, nepotism, and sleeping with the boss will take you. There is something poetic about that. I don’t know how the newspaper staff stood for such unethical circumstances for so long. This one situation alone demonstrates how corrupt McClatchy has become. When you read about ‘Three Tire” and the ‘Elvis Room,’ it turns the stomach in these dire times.

If there is the slightest doubt about a harmful site being promoted here, that poster needs to be deleted. Thank goodness for virus protection. I want no part of that SOB.

I've heard that the Z-man has had it with this site. If your caught using it in the building bye, bye.

Oh how I hope 6:19's malicious site came from a McClatchy office because someone is in a heap of dookie, because it has been turned in. Evidence too.

I have read several times now, that current employees need to dish the dirt on their home computers. What about text messaging? How could that be traced?

Rhonda is a KC joke. Z-man is a KC joke, the Red Scar is a KC joke. What was the question?

8:29 they're looking at this site. This is the site that keeps trashing his wife. It really is a pretty simple thing for tech people to provide that kind of information if Zieman wants it.

Ha! If you have a company cell phone they can not only track your usage, they can track you! Every single step you take. They know where you are 24/7. The bar, the bathroom, the grocery store or the liquor store it doesn't matter. The best thing to do with a McClatchy cell phone is put it in your desk and forget it is even there.

Yes, but who wants to give up their free "Transition Package"? LOL I'd be just like Mark to yank my trauma counseling and half price subscription coupon.

I don’t think for one minute the Red Star & Sickle would prosecute a malicious virus infector if found among their loyal employees.

I did find out one thing, Gannett ***HATES*** the Gannett blog, and they diss it at every chance. I don’t think they would allow anything illegal to originate from their buildings.

It seems to me, Zee is so infected in his corruption of ethical standards, I am not sure I can give him the benefit of the doubt. Time will tell.

8:49 If your'e using a company computer for this kind of stuff they can fire you. Don't kid yourself they would be within their rights. This would be a quick way to help the numbers.

If done from a McClatchy office, or by a McClatchy employee, it would be McClatchy themselves that were on the hook for prosecution and civil suits.

I am concerned though. I am getting the feeling that it might be futile to ask McClatchy to sponsor the McClatchy Watch Softball team this year. ;-)

Lokeman is arrogant, and just plain crude. When someone of low character causes their own downfall, it is amusing to observe, that does not make me a bad person, just an amused observer.

After she handed out her useless crud on a weekly basis, underwritten by her husband’s nepotism, she is not going to cry racism, and all her standard rants du jour to me. She used to rant and rave that Gov. Palin did not personify a real woman, as she felt she did. Is that not the most insane statement her side of abnormal?

Come on, man. How could Ron da have ever known that she was going to get printed and mugged before she caught a quick shave? It's a mistake any Tranny Ho could make.

@ McC -

Thanks for the linkback, sir.

Last I heard, Gov. Palin was still driving on all four tires. I would guess the ADN will say she is not saving the planet for Algore. Wasteful, wasteful, using four tires, I repeat four tires, when she has a perfectly good rim to drive on, when she desires to sip wine at her Anchorage studio.

So, you prefer a rude and crude drunk? You don’t really know anything true about Gov. Palin. The ADN saw to that. So, you do have a president you knew nothing about. McClatchy played their part in your ignorance. Go McClatchy, rock on, this guy sings in your band as it tanks out of sight! ‘Sweet Justice, sweet justice.’

10:25 I prefer a "nude and crude drunk" to someone with no brains. At least we'd be able to talk.

You bought into the smears of a very frighten Democratic party. You would buy the lies about a woman with enough political savvy to become a Governor, and hold the highest approval rating in all
‘57’ states. I guess research isn’t your strong suit. You can hold all the conversations you want with a drunk. Drink the Kool-aid, it soon will be all you have left to drink in the unemployment line.

1:25. I said no such thing. Please retract. Rhonda and Mark have been my friends for nearly 22 years, although, obviously, I don't see them much these days as I no longer work at The Star.

Have you gotten an invitation to her trial? Maybe celebrate on 18th and vine if she doesn't go to jail. Really Les, you need to be more careful about who you choose as friends.
