Democratic Lawyer Threatens College Media - Vee Vill Be Vatching You!
One Thomas Louis Rosenberg of Roetzel & Andress, LPA in Columbus, Ohio sent the following to Tiffany Wilson, a Palestra reporter and a recent graduate of Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism:
From: Rosenberg, Thomas
Date: Sun, Oct 26, 2008 at 2:32 PM
Subject: At least in today’s blog you spelled my last name right
In other words, I am going to read what you write and watch what you say. Hopefully you will be fair and impartial as you told me you would be.

The above is not a translation from the "original" German, "Vee Vill Be Vatching You!" And why do I picture this man wearing a monocle?
This type of intimidation tactic, as typical as it is for the Obama campaign, is appalling. It is also what we can expect from our government during an Obama administration, those who expose the Obama administration's potential fraudulent and illegal activities will be threatened by those who otherwise "See Nutting!"
What is one to think of an attorney who insinuates that there is a need for a member of the media to appear "fair and impartial" as defined by that lawyer? What is one to think of that attorney's understanding of the First Amendment as applied to journalists? Further what is one to think of the political campaign that such a lawyer supports through this not unwritten intimidation? It is also worth noting that Tiffany's and fellow Palestra journalist Shelby Holliday's work uncovered Democratic vote fraud in the state of Ohio and this member of the Ohio State Bar Association has taken it upon himself to threaten Ms. Wilson for what one would reasonably conclude was her journalistic threat to organized Democratic vote fraud in the state of Ohio.
Watch this video (also linked above) and listen (near the end) to the tactics of the Ohio lawyers who have been involved in Democratic get out the vote efforts and the office of the Ohio Secretary of State, a Democratic supporter of Senator Obama.
Greta Van Susteren has reported the following: "UPDATE: 1:10pm — I was told the lawyer apologized to the Palestra journalist..and said he did not mean it to be an intimidation." That is rich, "he did not mean it to be an intimidation." then what did he mean it as, an editorial review? Sheesh, some of these Obama supporters are unbelievable, do they think that everybody is as ignorant as some of Obama's supporters?
By no means should this post be taken as a reason to intimidate Mr. Rosenberg or his law firm, let's leave that type of nonsense to the thugs in the Obama campaign.
Hat Tip: Jamie Wearingfool and Greta Van Susteren. Many thanks to Greta, an attorney (and Wisconsin Badger fan) who was on top of the story this morning.
