Does anybody know anything about a huge hacker attack aimed at McClatchy websites this week?

Anonymous said...

No, but when you think about it, hacking a McClatchy site is tantamount to vandalizing a salvage yard.

Who's going to care besides the vandal or the owner?

8:26 I didn't notice. But then again, I never spend more than a couple of minutes a day, maybe 3 minutes a day, on MNI sites.

I am surprised you guys are not excited that someone attacked a liberal news organization and tried to knock them offline.

I figured there would be a lot of rejoicing. There was more excitement on misspellings on a website than this.

We're more excited that a lefty troll admitted that McClatchy was a liberal news organization.

Now if the Obamababoon was impeached, this day would be even more exciting.

I consider the liberal use of the racially-tinged epithet "Obamababoon" to be a personal attack on the President.

All comments containing this slur should be deleted.

Sorry man, not a lefty, but it is obvious that they are a liberal news organization...that is an undeniable fact. I don't think anyone has ever claimed that they are not a liberal organization.

Well, let's analyze this. Hellman & Friedman and McClatchy, together, have a stake in the media, as everyone knows. Hellman & Friedman own shares of a certain Defense contractor, as well as shares of the Federal Reserve.

They also have ties to powerful lobby firms and politicians.

If someone (Obama..hint hint) wants to control the Internet, a good strategy would be to attack the media sites, then one of his cronies can write a bill and tuck earmarked money in it for the certain Defense contractor to create a software solution to control the Internet.

It just so happens that the Defense contractor is a global digital map maker that partners with a certain company we all use. Oh yeah, let's not leave out the fact that an executive of that company heads up another company that influences the elections.

So, I'm just giving an opinion. If I was Obama and I was ruthless like him, I would attack the Internet so I could create a "cure" to protect the media sites. Hence, I would control the Internet and the news (of course bailing out the news helps too)

People don't get it. Every aspect our lives are rapidly being controlled and Obama is not working alone. It takes the Bush and Clinton administrations to help set this up.

It isn't about party lines, likes Dems and Rep. It's about the global citizenship Obama gave in one of his speeches. In order to bring that to pass, he has to stop the freedoms we have in the U.S. In order to do that, they have to stop us from communicating.

News and Internet. He has to control those.

Okay, I'm done ranting.

I doubt you complained when the Left referred Bush to a chimp except that Obamababoon looks more like a chimp than Bush ever did.

"I doubt you complained when the Left referred Bush to a chimp except that Obamababoon looks more like a chimp than Bush ever did."

I'm also guessing they didn't complain when Bush was teased about his speech shortcomings. They wouldn't DARE tease Obama for not being able to speak without a teleprompter.

At least Bush could put a sentence together without it being written for him and broadcast on teleprompters.

Obama babbles when he tries to speak on his own. This is a sure sign he's nothing but a puppet spewing out what he's told to speak. When the words go down, he's lost.

He's a disgrace to this country and doesn't even know how to run a country. I'd like to see him give a speech on ALL the issues, without it being written for him and put on a teleprompter.

I don't think he can do it. He is too dependent on his puppet masters.

To the hidden person who said this: "All comments containing this slur should be deleted."

I'm wondering if you would say the same thing about the horrendous comments, including the death threats against those who oppose the views of the Left-Wing Extremists...or is it just people who speak against your views that should be silenced?

That's the problem with the Left-Wing people. They can dish it out but they can't take it. Why is that?

Since you hide behind an anonymous name, I can probably answer it.

You don't have a backbone.

You just made my day! That's too funny, considering, you wouldn't know he's on other blogs, unless you have ALSO been spending time in blogs instead of out making a living.

Comical.

John Altevogt said...

10:27 Yes I do, and I just had a closing. Unfortunately, I'm betting you're either not old enough to buy real estate, or don't have the credit rating to pull it off.

Although, you just missed an opportunity to tell me how you were going to buy a house from me, but now you're not and you're also never going to post here again because I'm so mean.

Shark Girl said...

To t.he anonymous poster who can't tolerate critical opinions of the Left-Wing...I'd like to challenge you.

So far, you have lashed out like a child. Instead, let's try something.

It's okay to have a different view, but I'd like you to try to post an analysis of the topics at hand. Give us an educated solution, critique, or some kind of discussion that aids in showing you have intelligence and can think on your own, instead of lashing out like a child because your leader is being talked about in a manner you don't like. I'll help you.

How do you feel about Obama's plans to control the Internet, and how will that affect your life if he succeeds?

While on a business trip to Florida, the Tampa Tribune was attached to my room door. The thing that drew my attention, was how slim it appeared. It fact it was more than slim, it was anorexic. I could not find any reason to purchase the Tampa Tribune, NONE. It was a tiny newspaper that contained day old news. I mentioned the useless paper, and was told that recently, the price was raised, home delivery ended in some areas, and the main emphasis has become the Web edition. Sad newspaper, if you can call these skeletal remains a newspaper at all, a flyer would be closer to the truth. I can’t believe they have the nerve to charge anything, let alone raise the price.

How many crooks and tax cheats is ‘The TelePrompTer Man’ allowed in his cabinet? How many serious mistake cover-ups can the corrupt Democrats get, even from a totally corrupt media?

Nanny Palousy said she was going to drain the government swamp, but of course she didn’t realize she would be the ooze clinging to the bottom. Where is all this government transparency HopeyChangey talked about? It is like a lie a day now, and it is becoming clear the Democrats couldn’t run a decent dog and pony show.

Shark Girl said...

Anonymous @2:57 - Don't be too quick to put this off on the Democrats. Both the Clinton and Bush administration remain quiet while possibly the biggest scandal ever to hit the United States is taking place.

It's possible we have a foreign traitor who has taken over an entire nation.

There is NO WAY Obama is pulling this off on his own.

Bush and Clinton administration has remained in power. Why? You would think Obama would get rid of them, but he embraces them and the NRCC remains silent.

It isn't about Democrats and Republicans. Maybe it was at one time, and Republicans had values, but they don't any more. If they did, the Republicans in Congress would demand justice. Instead, they aid Obama.

They are either cowards because someone is silencing them and they don't have the back bone to defend America, or they are part of the scandal.

Either way, they have no business being in Congress. Period.

Listen up: My comment about needing to delete Obamababoon comments contained no statement saying I am on the right or left. It is a reaction to racism, pure and simple.

As for an Obama-led conspiracy to hijack the Internet, it seems to me it's MUCH more likely that an embittered, unbalanced former McClatchy employee would sabotage the company's websites.

Obama's a pretty busy dude. I wouldn't credit the McClatchy websites with attracting his notice.

It's not just the three administrations colluding. It's also the UN, the Jews and the Girl Scouts.

Shark Girl said...

I disagree with you about Obama having time for McClatchy. He's made time to get himself involved in taking over corporations and the media.

McClatchy is the third largest news organization. What about GM? Obama made time to get involved there.

What about the state primary election process of NY? Obama made time to get involved in that.

What appears is that he doesn't have time to run the nation according to the Constitution because he's so busy violating it.

He has time to bow to a foreign king. He has time to loot America's money.

He has time to make the decision to bailout the newspapers.

He has time to meet with employees of newspapers and tell them they need better accommodations.

What he doesn't have time for is Israel, Christians and anyone who opposes his policies.

As for the comments about Obama, I agree that name calling is wrong for anyone.

In case anyone is interested in the newspaper industry....

First paragraph:


The Newspaper that Fired Its Readers

A newspaper’s authority derives ultimately from its prosperity. So it was more bad news last week that among the 25 largest US newspapers, only The Wall Street Journal managed to eke out a small gain in circulation during the six months of the financial crisis. The general gloom, however, may be somewhat overstated. A hot-potato game has characterized the industry over the last twenty years, the astute and the distressed unloading on the innocent and reckless. As a result, many important newspapers – in Chicago, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Boston – are in the hands of owners ill-equipped to manage them. Another round of potato-passing, this one finally at the bottom of the market, may improve matters somewhat.

At my paper (and we're a big one that took a huge hit on our circulation numbers) the company made a conscious decision to eliminate circulation programs that were expensive to deliver and gave no ROI to advertisers -- such as hotel copies. This willingness to abandon programs which, cosmetically at least, had always given us bigger numbers was a sea change in management philosphy. We don't market circulation to our customers anymore -- we market readership, which includes our website and other products.

The comment about the current "potato passing" at the bottom of the market is an interesting one.

At my paper we're about half the staff that we used to be and starting to post a margin again. The cutbacks have given us a very seasoned, talented and dedicated core of staff. There is a hopeful aura that WE will make it even if McClatchy doesn't. We are a much more delicious steaming hot potato to pass than we were at the beginning of this mess.

Excuse me? Just how do you figure your paper is going to "make it" if your business fails?

You folks seem to think that you are a stand alone business that can somehow operate as an independent company, when nothing could be further from the truth.

Who in the world is pumping you people with this nonsense? If McClatchy fails....YOU FAIL. You can't be "taken private" or "spun off", but you can be liquidated in which case you will cease to exist as a work force.

Anonymous said...

Nobody is going to shut our doors. We can be sold as a viable business enterprise. It is hard to imagine being owned by anyone worse than McClatchy.

You don't seem to understand how things work. You cannot be sold as a viable business because every single stick of furniture, every door knob and even the chair you park your happy behind in is collateral for the debt you hold.

Your company cannot do squat without the permission of your creditors and if you are indeed a potentially profitable business, they will have it managed before they would allow McClatchy to sell it.

Even then, as you claim your profitability the real world knows that your revenues are in a total free fall and your business will collapse if simply left to your own device.

No one, but no one in their right mind would buy your business under McClatchy when they know full well that they can get it at liquidation for a few pennies on the dollar....WITHOUT the debt that your company has incurred.

Every single solitary McClatchy outlet has claimed that they were profitable when the truth is, none of you are. You can't be because you don't raise enough revenue to meet your liabilities.

lol employees still comming here and feeding the trolls.

OBAMA is our leader for 4 years and nobody here can or will do anything about that.

its called bitterness. no matter what you tell them, they are upset and so let them be upset. Stop feeding them. They along with a number of other crazy wack jobs will never get over the fact that a black man did what none of them could ever dream of.

speaking of black folks, you ever see any mormon that are black? must be the far far right religion. eh?

Not my leader nor is he my president. I don't care he is black, but I do care that the white liberal media elected a Marxist, Islamist nutjob like the Obamababoon as president.

As for 4 years, the Obamababoon could be impeached and removed from office in less than 4 years.

Let us pray.

Let's see, Hitler hated Jews. Rev. Wright hated Jews too. Obamababoon loved Rev. Wright.

I think the Obambaboon is closer to Hitler and is very akin to placing Jews into concentration camps.

Anonymous @ 1:10 voice of reason come election day?

Your behavior causes a certain Bible Scripture to make a whole lot of sense. I've wondered how anyone can support a man that murders babies; promotes homosexuality; (which even if one hates God or doesn't believe in Him, should still see that certain parts do not fit biologically with a same sex relationship); and loots America and sends our money to our enemy countries. Oh yes, he also bowed to a foreign king, which NO president of the United States should do. He disses America and its people to our enemies. He's anti-Christ, (and I'm talking about the beast. Anything against Christ is anti-Christ); He's anti-American, anti-Jew (as evident by the man he learned from for over 20 years); and he refuses to produce his documents, thereby forcing Americans to pay an expensive legal battle. No true American who loves his country would do that to the people.

The media promotes everything he does. But here is something to consider. He's Muslim. He acknowledges Shariah law. Do you know what this means to the homosexual community? It means they were used by a very conniving man to loot them of their money, their votes and their lobbying connections. That's all they were to them. Why?

Because under Shariah laws, homosexuals are to be executed. All they were to him was pawns to help him get elected. If he gets his way in America, Shariah law demands that infidels be executed, and there is a long list of the order in which they are classified. A pecking order to be executed, so to speak.

Now, why on earth would millions of people support such a man, and be so blinded to the truth and stick their head in the sand and not see any red flags of warning? Simple. They can't. It's impossible for them to see the truth because they have been turned over to a depraved mind.

You think Conservatives are trying to scare folks in calling a Black man names? I feel sorry for you. Your mind has been turned over to depraved thinking and you can't see what's going to happen to YOU.

Even if he is elected again, it isn't our voice of reason you will listen to. It's your voice listening to your mind, which was turned over to your sins by the God whom you mock.

I no longer try to explain the behavior or thinking of the Liberals. I fully understand they act the way the do, spend money on the things they do, and support an anti-Christ to be their leader because they can't help it. They have a reprobate mind. One day, I hope it is our voice of reasoning you listen to instead of your reprobate mind.

Romans 1:28-32
28 When they refused to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their evil minds and let them do things that should never be done. 29 Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, fighting, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. 30 They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They are forever inventing new ways of sinning and are disobedient to their parents. 31 They refuse to understand, break their promises, and are heartless and unforgiving. 32 They are fully aware of God's death penalty for those who do these things, yet they go right ahead and do them anyway. And, worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.

i wonder how many abortions took place under the bush presidency?

He did so much to stop it as president. So while we were killing our childeren under bush at home. The ones that did make it, he sent off to another country to die for what???

We both agree abortion is murder, the difference is i know that no matter who is in office, it will continue unless the people speak up.

something worth noting-
