Citizens would think that if Courthouse News Service (CNS) and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press knew about what I have been filing in court records alleging that I, a citizen journalist, was being retaliated against for exposing public corruption, they would be reporting upon it, or at least talking with me…right?
Not yet, and perhaps not in the real world of government/media clap trapping!
On the eves of Halloween, October 30th, 2014, my filing of the document entitled REPORTING FRAUD UPON THE U.S. EASTERN DISTRICT COURT TO PRESIDING JUDGE MORRISON ENGLAND, JR. in Forte v. Merced County, et al, Case # 1:11-cv-00318-AWI-BAM Doc. 273 should of had the media up in arms, but it didn’t.
Instead, even after my prevailing with rare punitive damages in a Federal courtroom on June 12th, 2014, representing myself and proving I was not delusional in saying I was maliciously retaliated against by public officials for exposing government malfeasance in my newspaper, I’m now being treated worse than an anarchist by the press.
I just couldn’t let the media and judicial rhetoric contained in the recent article by Courthouse News Service (CNS) about their winning appeal issued by the 9th Circuit Court go without comment from my personal experience.
I still remain labeled, scathed and ostracized as delusional and crazy notwithstanding that I proved at trial my allegations of government retaliation and thereby, SHOWN myself not to be delusional, or crazy.
The quick down low of it is that the CNS article is a pandering journalistic puff piece to keep the public sedated.
The straw man trick works great upon those unfamiliar with the true facts of the argument.
On November 14th, 2014, the Ninth Circuit Court sided with Courthouse News Service (CNS) supported by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and 25 media organizations, including The Associated Press, Dow Jones & Company, Bloomberg L.P., The New Yorker, News Corporation and The Seattle Times Company.
“Civil complaints are most newsworthy the day they are filed, and, accordingly, the media is most likely to report on lawsuits of public interest and concern at that time,” said the signatories, also including The E.W. Scripps Company, Gannett Company, Hearst Corporation and the McClatchy Company, reported Bill Girder, CNS editor.
In a nutshell, it was regarding the constitutional importance of news organizations having prompt access to court filed documents in civil cases so that their most important role can be fulfilled in keeping citizens aware of what their government is doing.
Judge Kim McLance Wardlaw wrote for the three-judge panel: “It is thus well-established that the right of access to public records and proceedings is ‘necessary to the enjoyment’ of the right to free speech.”
The attorneys for CNS, Rachel Matteo-Boehm with Bryan Cave took the position that, “You can’t talk about your government unless you know what your government is doing. The right of access is necessary to allow the public to discuss what the courts are doing.”
It continues to be unbelievable to me that the media is not reporting upon the proven retaliation against me by government officials for exposing corruption in my Badger flats Gazette. They have not upheld what Wardlaw wrote in his opinion:
“Indeed, this transparency has made possible the vital work of journalists who have strengthened our government by exposing its flaws.”
It has been and continues to be my contention that McClatchy Newspapers, along with other news organizations have intentionally ignored reporting upon the attack upon me by government officials due to my saying they were complicit actors to malign me falsely to the public.
Will Courthouse News Service’s Bill Girder step on the toes of McClatchy Newspapers by reporting upon my court case that assails the credibility of McClatchy Newspapers for concealing government retaliation against me for reporting upon government corruption?
REPORTING OF GOVERNMENT PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT
AGAINST A CITIZEN JOURNALIST AND
FRAUD UPON THE COURT CONCEALED BY MEDIA ORGANIZATIONS?
My court filed Doc. 273-Request for Reporting Fraud on the Court by Eastern District Court Judges Anthony Ishii and Magistrate Barbara McAuliffe to conceal governmental prosecutorial misconduct by DA Larry Morse in retaliation for me exposing government corruption of Mayor Tommy Jones has not raised an eyebrow of interest from McClatchy or any other news organization.
My Doc. 275-0-Supplemental Information Reporting Fraud Upon the Court to Judge England with supporting exhibits 275-1-Ex. 1 January 28th, 2013 Competency Trial Court Transcript, 275-2-Ex. 2-Abandonment of Competency Trial Appeal, 275-3-Ex. 3-Declaration in Support of Abandonment of Appeal were provided directly to Courthouse News Service, Metropolitan News, McClatchy Newspapers, Rutherford Institute, First Amendment Coalition, the San Diego Tribune, and a bevy of other news organizations, and/or free speech activists groups.
I seriously doubt they can claim it has been kept from them by the court.
I made it very simple for them to investigate my claims of government retaliation against me for exposing public corruption.
The fact is that the media will not report upon things the government and the media does not want reported upon.
In my case, it is due to me being the citizen known as the AttorneyBuster that ran as Governor of California on the platform of exposing judicial and public official corruption aided by McClatchy Newspapers.
SHOULD THE MEDIA BE REPORTING UPON MY COURT CASE TO THE PUBLIC?
I’M ASKING THEM AGAIN TO PLEASE DO SO, OR TELL ME WHY NOT?
I am forwarding a link to this blog to the following attorneys and news organizations so that they may provide it to their media clients for a response to my question, and/or to report upon it:
- Rachel Matteo-Boehm (argued), Roger Myers, David Greene, and Leila Knox , Bryan Cave LLP, San Francisco, California, for Plaintiff-Appellant, Courthouse News Service.
- Robert A. Naeve (argued), Erica L. Reilley, and Nathaniel P. Garrett, Jones Day, Irvine, California, for Defendant- Appellee, Ventura County Superior Court.
- Lucy A. Dalglish, Gregg P. Leslie, and Kristen Rasmussen, Arlington, Virginia, for Amicus Curiae The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press
- CNS editor Bill Girdner, CNS reporter Julianna Krolak (via email to Carol Sage)
- San Diego Tribune, Steven Greenhut
- McClatchy Newspapers, John Ellis (Fresno Bee), Denny Walsh (Sacramento Bee), Joe Kieta (Modesto Bee/Merced Sun-Star), Gene Lieb, Corey Pride (Los Banos Enterprise)
- Metropolitan News, Ken Ofgang

- First Amendment Coalition
- The Rutherford Institute, John Whitehead
- The First Amendment Project, David Greene
This is not the first time they have been notified, but yet another in a string of many.
I provided evidence to media groups that I was being falsely prosecuted, then declared crazy by the government, and then succeeded in proving to a Federal Jury of eight that the retaliation against me by government actors for exposing public corruption was real, I was not crazy, and it was done with malicious intent by Jones.
They have not said a word about it.
Let’s see if anyone now responds.
