Ebola and Blinkoncrime

I listened to an interesting piece this weekend about the reporting of the Ebola outbreak. An infectious disease specialist commented that even articles that are accurately reporting on the outbreak can do damage with sensationalized headlines.

EBOLA OUTBREAK LIKELY TO GO GLOBAL

 

While this is technically true, as the outbreak might spread in isolated instances on a global level,it harkens much more apocalyptic images. It is extremely unlikely, statistically almost impossible, for the virus to hit the average person in the United States. But headlines like that elicit fear and emotion from the reader. As they are designed to. The infectious disease specialist was commenting that reporting like that has no benefit to society and is actually simply harmful.

 

It reminded me of Christina Stoy and her sensationalized website. Writing in the most inflammatory and insinuating way possible, she elicits fear,emotion, outrage and suspicion from her readers, where in actuality there is little foundation for alarm. She tagged my name, along with the name of my spouse (both of whom were praised by police for our Good Samaritan-ism and volunteerism while searching for a lost child) along side Jerry Sandusky and Jordan Van Der Sloot. Shock pseudo-journalism at its finest.

In my case, she even added false information to the mix to further the suspicion. I had a good laugh as I listened to the interview, thinking to myself that if Christina Stoy were reporting on Ebola, the message would be clear that the world is ending we’re all going to die from infection.

 

A New School Year Has Begun

A whole new group of parents, meeting the special education resource teacher for their child. Maybe Googling her name.

 

And finding an article with her name tagged at the top about the disappearance of a little girl. Something she had nothing to do with.

 

Shannon Stoy doesn’t care about that. One of the first results under my spouse’s name on search engines is an article plagued with mistakes and libel. The author is fully aware of both the mistakes she’s made and the impact it’s had on lives, but she simply doesn’t care.

My spouse is a wonderful woman, who’s dedicated her life toward the teaching and mentoring of children, who works directly with the underadvantaged and learning disabled. S. Christina Stoy doesn’t care about, doesn’t care that she is harming her professional reputation. That she is casting a shadow with lies.

Christina Stoy might say that I’ve done the same to her, with my campaign online. The difference is, everything I’ve said is true and grounded in fact. Christina Stoy is the culprit of a libelous article with mistakes intended to cast suspicion on me. And in turn, by tagging her name, my spouse.

My spouse had nothing to do with a child’s abduction. She has a letter from police clearing her of wrongdoing and praising her actions. She was never a suspect in any crime to begin with.

She is only tagged in the Blink on Crime article for two reasons.

 

1. She is my spouse, and because I left my house voluntarily to search for a lost girl, I have put her in the spotlight.

2. Christina Stoy is heartless and unscrupulous.

It breaks my heart that the woman I love is so tarnished because of me. While I didn’t do anything wrong, and was merely acting in the best interest of a lost child, that action brought on the sensationalism of Blink on Crime.

Christina Stoy printed a libelous article and interview about me. When I approached her about it, she said Name one lie. Name one mistruth that is not an opinion, if it can be substantiated, I will absolutely correct it without pause.”

However, when I corrected her and itemized her lies and libel, she responded not by correcting any of it. Rather, she refused to publish my correction and left it all in place.

While Shannon Stoy has repeatedly said she offered me every chance to comment on her site, the itemized post correcting the inaccuracy of her article was never published. Having an idea of the moral character of Ms. Stoy, I took a screen shot of as it awaited approval by Shannon Stoy. Scrolling through the comments section to July, the correction of her distortion of publicly released documents remains unposted.

Thoughts on Christina Stoy the liar

My issues with Blink on Crime are well chronicled in this blog. It’s a pretty simply story.

 

Christina Stoy, the author, printed fabrications about me in regards to the abduction of my neighbor. Blatant contradictions of public record.

I’ve talked to the neighbor of mine she cites, who refutes her lies. I’ve presented her with a letter from Tucson Police, which was a direct response to her article. I’ve itemized her libel in direct correspondence with her.

 

But still, on the first page of Google results for my name, is her original article. No corrections. No retractions. No updates. Just lies.

 

As well, on the front page of Google, is a hit to the Scared Monkies forum, spreading the disinformation that Christina Stoy originated. I have attempted to contact the forum, I’ve submitted accounts in my own name to defend myself, yet my account is still awaiting approval. For nearly two years.

This fits the standard set by Christina Stoy. Slander names, print untruths, spread rumor, move on. Innocent people be damned.

 

This blog of mine gets alot of hits.

 

If you’re reading this, it’s because you were on Blinkoncrime.com, or another site that is commenting on it. It’s important that you know what kind of “reporting” you’re reading.

 

Christina Stoy read public documents about a child abduction. Without contacting her subjects, she published a mistake riddled “article” on her website, that completely misrepresented the truth in favor of sensationalism. When confronted with her mistakes, she first became aggressive, then ultimately stopped corresponding. She’s never corrected her mistakes or retracted.

 

You did not read reporting on Blinkoncrime.com, you read sensationalism. You read tabloid blogging.

S Christina Stoy, the Liar

One of the lies told by Christina Stoy in her interview and article about me, is that publicly released documents contradict the timeline of my morning while searching for my abducted neighbor.

She used this pdf, released by Tucson Police :

to indicate that I was identified away from the area I was searching. This is an insinuation that while I said I was searching for an abducted girl, I was actually loitering in an alleyway. Shannon Stoy has repeatedly said that I was identified by an eyewitness in public documents.

Blink : “Really- you feel the fact that a witness, who is on record asking you to leave from being perched on his electrical box, the exchange of which was released publicly, is protecting an investigation?”

Anyone can read the pdf and see that no witness is on record asking me to leave being perched on an electrical box. Eventually, it’s so glaring a mistake, that she had to address it.

Blink : “Nathan, I defer to my sources on this one, you are correct, it is not in the report. I am going to assume from your comment about “not reading it in the report” that you were never told that Mr. Lutzelberger described you, from sitting on the electrical box, and I note that you do not deny it. I am not suggesting that is anything nefarious, btw.”


After hounding her to correct her mistakes, she finally admitted that despite her claims that she was simply reporting on “PUBLICLY RELEASED DOCUMENTS” (she capitalizes that for emphasis), she actually wasn’t. She was reporting something that IS NOT (my capitalization, for emphasis) in publicly released documents. She has added details. Now, I spent a good amount of time contesting that detail, because I was never perched on an electrical box.

Then one day, it occurred to me, that eyewitness lives in my neighborhood. Maybe he did identify me as a man perched on his electrical box. Maybe I was wrong!

I doubted it, but it was possible. I walk my dog past his house pretty regularly. One night, driving home from work, I detoured and stopped. The next thing I knew, I was walking to his door and ringing the bell.

After a little explanation, he said “Of course that wasn’t you, I’ll never forget that guy.”

I asked him if he had identified me to Officer Robinson. Turns out, he hadn’t seen me talking to Officer Robinson. He certainly didn’t ID me as the man he told to get out of his alley.

He wanted to know why Shannon Stoy hadn’t called him. Then he said I should tell her to call him, as he had some things he’d like to say to her. I had a good laugh at that.

So when Shannon Stoy says I was identified by an eyewitness perched on an electrical box in an alley, in publicly released documents, she actually means that I wasn’t.

Whatever her source is, it contradicts the account of the eyewitness, and the information in the publicly released documents. I’d be very interested to find out who her source is that informed her of a conversation and identification that never happened. I won’t speak for Mr. Lutzleberger, but I got the impression he wasn’t happy that she’d put words in his mouth.
