The queen of anti-SLAPP and Prince Lowe

That would be pals Wendy McCaw and Rob Lowe. With their identic law firms and twin legal techniques.
Will aggressive intimidating legal techniques bring success?
The Santa Barbara News-Press [Ampersand Publishing] didn't miss a beat of the Michael Jackson trial. The D.A. photographed celebrity genitals, nothing was too sordid. Rob Lowe is no Michael Jackson in global popularity but this is the biggest celebrity trial in Santa Barbara County since Jackson.
McCaw has been handed an opportunity by her friends,
the Lowes.

The News-Press will cover celebrity legal trials with equal gusto?
Ampersand will show the world they aren't biased?

Wendy had a champagne moment when Federal Judge Stephen Wilson gave First Amendment refuge to her last May. Her celebration was short.
Lowe has been on a roller coaster. Their lawyer, Stanton "Larry" Stein, did manage a postponement for Lowe.

We'd like to see a new comic series about the news-press friends and clowns, or a tabloid format.
Not one of them belong in legit journalism.
What about the children?
What are we teaching children when friends are given special favor and clowns are treated in a serious manner? Their violations and crimes
to be scrutinized, but
none are worthy professionals.

Laura Schlessinger attracts the tackiest wackiest theatre of the absurd... her long time rancor with her sailing competitors again emerged. She also belongs to right wing groups that sell each others books and set up "awards" to give out. Uber PR associates, some who gain from the misfortune of others. Along with her distribution company and The Reputation Doctor they keep the internet enforced with her fantasy. NO word on Laura's unkept promise to keep everyone up to speed on Afghanistan or her sniper son, DerykSchlessinger/KingOf*Hearts* MySpace photos.
Deryk Schlessinger
or Lew Bishop.
The only words on this are Laura's CNN lies...

The funniest part of her sailing "news" was to learn what she named her latest competitor speed boat, "Perfect".
The yellow speed boat, Perfect,
had a run about with a weather marker and flunked perfection. Creating a larger scene for the failing perfectionist. You don't name a yellow racer "Perfect" if you don't want the attention. She expects to live up to the name?

9. Did Dr. Laura Do the Right Thing?

10. The big package: Lying to go to war is no big deal....

"If you have a problem with Laura Schlessinger spreading her legs for a camera,
don't write to me - write to her and ask, 'Dr. Laura - how could you? What about the children?'" Bart

Robert Erlinger, Wendy's newest expense, is a big dud.

Eringer writes again!

Eringer writes again!

The Wendy "investigator", Robert Eringer, recylces his old product, another Laura Schlessinger repeat, copy, same, repeat, copy, same, over and over ad nauseam. That serves one purpose...

[] Eringer's recent News-Press article/column [he's also a correspondent]:
June 14, 2008
Bilderbergers are still in cahoots
Robert Eringer

They're at it again -- a confab of politicians, bankers, industrial captains and scholars from North America and Western Europe. Some say they rule the world. "They" took their name from Hotel de Bilderberg, in the Netherlands, where they first met 54 years ago and have been meeting ever since, annually, for hush-hush talks on the foreign policies and economies of nations.
Last weekend they ensconced themselves inside Westfields Marriott Hotel in Chantilly, Va., near Washington, D.C.; [] the end

The Bilderbergers are the conspirator's kingpins and Eringer wrote The Global Manipulators: The Bilderberg Group 1980.

Eringer is such a shady character it was possibly set up by the Bilderbergers Group. Who knows? Eringer's m.o. is to pretend he's a "friend" while working against said "friend". He might be a friend to the best money sources. Basically, he has zero credibility. So he recycles Bilderberg and has a current assessment. Who cares?

Santa Barbara cares about real estate.
Why does this clown, who has a Montecito estate, need a seldom used "private work area built for him" at the News-Press?
Now that needs to be investigated.
If he doesn't produce a worthy local investigative piece, McCaw will look like she's using him to intimidate her already intimidated, dehumanized, spied on remaining employees.
If you haven't read "The Greatest Vendetta on Earth" it is by far more insightful than anything the News-Press will tell you.

A circus spy and CIA honcho Wendy McCaw can love...

"THE INVESTIGATOR" Robert Eringer, flacks for the Santa Barbara News-Press in a shameful sleeper: Secession: Coming soon to a neighborhood near you? 5/31/08 here
Without a doubt Jeff Stein's tale on "The Greatest Vendetta on Earth" shines more light in the dark life of another McCaw character. No, he's not on the good guys side, but he does keep his clothes on. He lived high on the hog with money made on the backs of circus animals and children.
Does Wendy care for circus animals?
The goofy Laura Schlessinger claimed to be so principled she refused to work for the same corporation as Howard Stern. No principles for Wendy. She booted 11 employees and gave "the investigator" office space away from his estate... knowing full well he spent 8 years on Ringling Brothers dime to prevent the truth about what it's like for animals and children. Does Schlessinger care for circus children? If Schlessinger had principles she'd at least do as she did with Dr.Seabaugh or Dear Abby.

"The Greatest Vendetta on Earth" is an interesting read:
Why would the head of Ringling Bros.-Barnum & Bailey hire a former top CIA honcho to torment a hapless freelance writer
for eight years?


"...Of all the strange figures that pop up in this murky tale, Robert Eringer may be the most mystifying. Eringer grew up in Beverly Hills, the son of a noted illustrator for Walt Disney who has now retired to Monaco. Despite attending four colleges without getting a degree, he became a fairly prolific author. In addition to a few magazine articles, mostly on espionage-related subjects, he published several nonfiction books, including "The Global Manipulators" (Pentacle, Bristol, England, 1980), an investigation of the so-called Bilderberg Group, a publicity-shy confederacy of top Western industrialists and officials; "Strike for Freedom: Lech Walesa and Polish Solidarity" (Dodd, Mead, 1982); and "The Conspiracy Peddlers" (1981), which one reviewer called an investigation of "researchers beavering away on ... activities of the super-rich and the intelligence community." That, of course, fit Jan Pottker to a T.

...Eringer also wrote a handful of spy novels, which were published by an obscure house called National Press Books and other even more obscure publishers in South Carolina linked to NPB. Eringer's fiction drew no attention except from a few equally obscure reviewers and publicists, at least one of whom was paid to spam the Internet with disingenuous praise for Eringer's books.

...Eringer's ties to the CIA don't end there. Former CIA director Richard Helms just happened to be Eringer's backyard neighbor in Foxhall, arguably the poshest part of Washington, until Eringer moved to California last June [2001?].

...Salon was unable to contact Eringer using the phone number in California that he left with the court. A reverse-directory check on the number in Santa Barbara, moreover, doesn't match the address he gave to the court.

..."When talk turned to the circus," they [Eringer and George] reported to Feld, "Pottker had very little to say. Why? She has no time to even think about Ringling Bros. Our projects have effectively diverted her from new investigations into Ringling Bros and from marketing her unpublished story on circus children."

...It would seem that Smith and Feld believed that they could control the media through friends in high places. Certainly the inexplicable press silence that followed Pottker's lawsuit seemed to give credence to their faith. After two years, despite court files swelling with riveting tales of corporate spying and dirty tricks; despite the curious involvement of a brand-name CIA agent with a member of the Forbes 400, who happens to own the world's largest, best known live-entertainment company; despite two suits filed by major animal rights groups; and despite the elaborate, nearly decade-long harassment of a writer swirling under the nose of the national media in Washington, not a word of her suit appeared in print or on the air.

...The 15 volumes in the basement of Superior Court are also littered with photocopies of checks that George and Eringer issued and received, not only in connection with Pottker, but in what looks like a wide spectrum of activities. All the while, they were dining out on other people's money at the Chevy Chase Club and other exclusive haunts.

"Project Preempt.".... By their own testimony, however, they admit that they ran an eight-year-long operation to divert her into different projects.

The vulgarity of spy and counter-spy...
