YAEL: INTERNETS FREE SPEECH IS KILLING DAISY AND NOT DEAD TREE MEDIA SPIN!!!



Kansas City Star Columnist Yael Abouhalkah is taking a bold stand but comment usually aren't allowed to challenge his opinion.

So here's a snippet:

Social media are helping kill Daisy Coleman

Money line:

"It would be better for all if Daisy and Melinda, her mom, were able to completely shut out social media, just to make the temptation go away to pay any attention to it at all."

- Never mind that Dead Tree Media drugged up the story of this mom & daughter duo that was mostly dismissed by everybody else because of clearly erratic behavior from the adult in the situation.

- And just like we said . . . The mom's hateful online comments directed at Internets denizens pushing forward her cause has been scrubbed from this story.

- Also, it would be really good for the newspaper if everybody just got offline.


This really isn't such a horrible column but it does ignore the complicity of Dead Tree Media in bringing an unstable pair into the limelight and then blaming the consequences of this decision on the Internets instead of taking any responsibility in creating the media storm over allegations from a teen girl who now admittedly has a problem with drug abuse and her guardian who seems very quick to lash out online.

If you do not want blowback from social media, don't use it.

Good point 10:54 and as Wilson himself found out. Anyone see that shit he wrote over at KCC yesterday. He wants to sue us for saying his wife isn't pretty and can't sing but maybe we all need to sue him for saying he was going to have union thugs attack us.

Daisy is in hospital fighting for her life. The person responsible for this has not been charged with a crime, because he is a son of privilege & power. The fans of this football player have been merciless with their online hateration.

This is an old song called blame the victim. See "The Accused" for a movie version.

Social Media cuts both ways. Dr. Coleman failed to realize this. 90% of Social Media should be discounted. Those not versed in the nuances of Social Media should avoid it.

Byron stop !

Byron Funkhouser said...

No. This is a free speech zone.

It appears that I'm about the only person who isn't calling this girl names. You didn't tell me why I should stop, & by that, I mean a real reason.

Because you're an idiot and never add jack squat to any story.

Daisy is fighting for her life because she and her Mom are bat shit crazy ice heads.

She wanted him. They fucked. My bet is he fucked her good. She wanted to be his GF. He only wanted a one night stand. Shes hurt, her Mom confronts her. RAPE!!!!

Daisy and her Mom are crazy. Daisy is a ice head who will do anything for another hit.

Daisy = slut ice head. End of story. No matter what Bryon says.

The accused will make a lot of money from the Star. But will the Star still be around for him to collect?

You have no respect for anyone including your family.

The main reason Byron is this, TKC is a local blog about local affairs. You don't live in this area, have never lived in this area and have no vested interests in this area. So in short there is no reason for you to be meddling around in our local affairs. Your claim of having a brother who was Mayor carries no weight since you have made it very clear how much you hate him. You make all kinds of other claims about your family which I will be honest and say we who live in the KC area don't care about and don't even want to know about them.

Byron, how do you know she is fighting for her life? Other than her mom and the mother of the second girl who was involved saying so, has anyone verified that claim? Point that out, will you? Daisy's mom now is saying 4 boys raped her that night, not just one. Do you believe that too?

Byron is an idiot I beat his ass in chess all the time.

LinceHispano said...

I beat his as good the other day twice as a matter of fact. he can't play chess at all. He likes to prey on the newbies and beat them but us great players pound him all the time.

Byron Funkhouser said...

When reporters come to your hick town, do you tell them to butt out? This is an INTERNATIONAL news story. This blog is a free speech zone.

pacificsun & LinceHispano - bullshit!

I play game & 15 on FICS for fun. Its not tournament chess, its not real chess.

Byron has a point, this story is making headlines across the world.

LinceHispano said...

Byron don't make us prove what a liar you are

Anonymous said...

1:41 but why is it making headlines across the country?

And Byron you are not a reporter so that does not apply to you. Your a pest.

Carl, Mission Hills said...

Has anyone other than me noticed when you present facts and truth at Byron he retorts with cussing and name calling along with lame excuses?

Byron Funkhouser said...

LinceHispano,

I'm not a liar, so stick your proof up your ass.

Anon 2:12

Its making headlines because we've all seen this movie before, & we're sick of it.

You call me a pest because I won't hate on this little girl.

Keep your stupid bullying to Face Book, where it belongs.

Byron Funkhouser said...

Haven't you noticed that I only call people names who call me names? What about the people calling Daisy names? Is that alright with you?

as a cranky old White guy - I complain about missing out on the social media back when I was .. y'know.. "social"..

many friends and chicks I sure wish I could have stayed in touch with ..

on the other hand, there were some embarrassing moments and f/u s that , back then, only took a short while to "live down".

now, there's be a vid of it floating around the internets forever..

soo..mixed blessing.

Byron,
How is it that someone who claims to be noble and self-respecting can sit on their boney ol' hillbilly ass and collect welfare or disability from the American taxpayers, yet troll TKC spouting off about any and every story? Given your ability to do this, shouldn't you be able to hold down some sort of job? Maybe data entry, or something like that? You claim to be blind, but you can see well enough to blow your tired old fartdust on every post on this site. If you're really Mark's brother, which I seriously doubt, it's no surprise why he's so estranged from you. Undoubtedly embarrassed. Why don't you get a job and channel some of your energy into that and quit being another sucker on the taxpayers' dime?

Sounds like this Daisy chick has bigger problems than claiming to be raped. It sounds like she's a lush. It she and her little friend were drinking at home but had to "sneak" out, that would imply that they were drinking at home while a parent was there? What's up with that Mommy? I'd also guess there's some truth to what 12:03 proposes. At 14, she probably had stars in her eyes about being with the football jock and big man on campus. Typical podunk small town melodrama. The only reason it's been blown out of proportion is because of the way Daisy and her mom poured the story all over the media; the same media they're now accusing of driving Daisy to suicide. You don't walk through fire, then complain about getting burned.

I just hope that when they bury the tired and worn out Star, they bury Yael Hookawakkabalkah with it. He's a wart on the butt of KC.

LinceHispano said...

I beat your ass good so shut up

pacificsun said...

Thanks for the heads up LH.

I beat funkhouser as well, I guess he must have you all thinking he is this great player? Well he isn't so is this where he hangs out, guess we need to get some of the other players over here to tell you folks all about this troll.

Byron's cousin, Huratio said...

I have to believe that Byron Funkyass was raped at some point. Most likely by a Zoo Ape or a long cock NEGRO. Either way, Byron got browned and now he has a attitude. Wonder if that's why he beats his wife, and doesn't pay taxes ? Living in a basement, playing with little boys is no way to live Byron. Pedo fuck....

Byron Funkhouser said...

Hey Pedo fuck, stop telling lies.

Did it not occur to you dumbasses that Mark embarrasses us. That it is I who won't have anything to do with him.

You people tell lies, because you're subhuman. There's no way around that.

You're the same kind of pussies that ruined Daisy's life.

Byron Funkhouser said...

PacificSun & LinceHispano,

I remember playing you guys. I didn't know that you were assholes. I won't be playing you again. I only play for fun.

Anonymous said...

You played and you lost deal with it asshole. What's wrong Byron are some of your so called chess friends turning your ass out?

I think it's great they are as well letting us know your a joke
