Errors in Online Journalism and Blink on Crime

I’ve done alot of websurfing regarding Blink on Crime and Shannon Stoy. Having someone try to connect you to a child abduction via misinformation and lies is a pretty personal thing. She inserted herself violently into my life, and because her pseudo journalism is on the internet, she has her unscrupulous words hang over my reputation daily.

Something I found while searching for her gave me a laugh.

Blink is not a subject in that article, but a picture from her website is credited. That in and of itself is comical. I doubt that Shannon Stoy took that picture of Joe Paterno, but somehow she needs to be credited for it.

What is really comical to me is that the article is about errors in online reporting and the need to issue clear and transparent corrections. How hilarious that Shannon Stoy is credited for anything in an article about correcting mistakes.

Shannon Stoy was willing to fuel insinuation and indictment against me in her comments section, all based on her fabrications. But when I actually itemized her mistakes, suddenly she stopped posting my comments.

When faced with her mistakes, Stoy not only refused to correct them in a way that is considered commonplace for media outlets, she censored them in her comments section.

“These corrections should be transparent and accessible, regardless of how short a time the error appeared on the website, according to New York Times Public Editor Arthur Brisbane. Rosenberg, of MediaBugs.org, suggests any correction of substance be mentioned in a note that appears at the top or bottom of the article.[25]

“Errors must be acknowledged”, said Silverman. “You can’t just go back and fix something, thinking that no one saw it. Someone always sees it.”[26]

Rosenberg said that for sites that publish correction notices as separate items of content, each correction notice should link to the article that was corrected, and each corrected article should link to the correction notice.[27]

Transparency is the key. Building and keeping the trust of readers in the digital world demands that online news sources be as transparent as possible. This showing of accountability will also give more credibility to the news site in the eyes of its users.”

Three Years

Three years ago, Shanon Christina Stoy printed a libelous article about me regarding the abduction of my neighbor’s daughter.

If you Google my name, three years later, her article is  one the top hits. If you google my name with my city, there are countless mentions in internet forums with the wildest speculation imaginable about me. While she herself didn’t make those threads or posts, that is in a sense fruit from the poisonous tree. Threads based on erroneous information that originated with her are her burden and her responsibility.

I’ve made accounts at several forums to share my side of things, which it turns out was almost unneeded. It turns out that Blinkoncrime and Shannon Stoy are well known in the internet crime discussion community, and she isn’t taken seriously.

The forum that she associates with, Scared Monkeys, has by far the most illogical and functionally inept posters. I’ve tried to contact them and make an account there. Three years later my account is still awaiting activation. It’s telling that spouters of lies prefer to do it in an arena that they can control.

So three years later, all of this still follows me around on the internet. And it will continue for decades, likely. Anyone who searches my name will immediately read libel by Stoy, followed by untold speculation and ridiculous accusation, all a result of her libel.

She has the power to change some of that. She could either remove the article, which was my original request. She could publish a correction, which was my subsequent request. She could print the letter from police that I sent her directly regarding her “reporting”, which was my last request.

Any of those would go a long way toward mitigating the damage she’s done to my reputation. The albatross hung around my neck was placed there by her, and it’s her responsibility.

The answer to the question, “Does Shannon Christina Stoy care that her libel will follow a man for decades?” is answered by her refusal to take any action. She doesn’t.

Thanks lady. Thanks a lot. The world needs unabashed liars, I guess.

Good Samaritan

I like stories like this.

Not to toot my own horn, but that’s the kind of guy that I am. I’ve pulled people from flipped over trucks. I’ve caught dogs and returned them home. I’ve given my shoes to shoeless homeless guys. I’ve helped gunshot victims on the street. I’ve changed countless tires on the side of the road and given many a stranger a ride.

And when my neighbor knocked on my door and said his daughter was missing, I left to help search for her.

Because of that search, Shannon Stoy took tid bits of police reports and published fabrications and insinuations about me. Then, when called on it and faced with her actions, she did nothing. To this day, her libel remains posted on her website.

I stop to help people in need. That’s the kind of guy that I am.

Shannon Stoy prints lies about people on the internet. The the kind of woman that she is.

Shannon Stoy – Tragedy Vampire

This morning on the radio I heard an interview with David Fincher, the director of Gone Girl.

He used a great phrase, that I believe describes Blinkoncrime and Christina Stoy. Tragedy Vampirism.

While outlets like Nancy Grace and Blinkoncrime will say they are working toward the public good and on behalf of societal interest, to the observant onlooker, it’s so clear that there is an ulterior motive. They are sucking away on the tragedy of life for their own fame and popularity.

Pay attention to the comments section of Blinkoncrime, as well as her postings. See how often she makes it about her. Shannon Stoy is not giving blood to the community of victims of the world, she sucking theirs.

Consecutive Days of Lying by Christina Stoy

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.
