It looked like a cyclist or jogger got hit where the CCT crosses little falls yesterday. You hear anything about that Robert?

11:16: Are you talking about the magazine that waited 24 hours to report that a Whitman family was involved in the fatal River Road crash, while the Washington Post was plagiarizing my original, enterprising reporting on the same accident?

What does need to be reported is the amount of taxpayer money some Montgomery County Government personnel and departments are spending to boost the private profits of that magazine.

Man, you're posting on behalf of the magazine, so you know how many stories I've beaten you on today, yesterday, last week, last month, last year... There's no comparison.

A press release is not breaking news, moron.

This should be easy to calculate. Just take Ken Hartman's annual salary and divide by the number of minutes that it takes to type a hyperlink, then multiply by the total number of links he provided during the past year. Tell us if you have gotten a total that exceeds two digits in dollars.

Saith Dyer, in a comment under his own copypasting of a press release that gives a minimal summary of crimes that happened four days ago.

@7:17 Funny you should bring up Ken Hartman's salary. BUP (Bethesda Urban Partnership) does not publish their financial reports publicly.. despite the fact they are funded almost entirely by fees from the public who pay to park in Bethesda.

Here's their 20+ page, glossy, flashy annual report. Notice the one thing missing? Financials!

It must burn Dyer up that every time he puts a couple of quarters in a parking meter, they are going to Ken Hartman to post links to Bethesda Magazine.

I, on the other hand, don't need to pay anything, because I can easily walk the Woodmont Triangle, and I can hop on the Circulator (also paid for by Dyer's quarters) to go to Bethesda Row.

Hey, why do you think he takes his photos at such odd hours of the day?

He's too cheap to pay for parking.

Also, he's terrified of that "Mean Little South Asian Man" who does parking meter enforcement.

7:36: Funny you bring up Bethesda UP, as they just tweeted a link to BM on a story I had broken a week earlier. It seems that without mysterious angel investors spending heavily on paid Google/Facebook placement and troll to post links here, and a hearty taxpayer-funded boost from Montgomery County officials, BM wouldn't have any online readership at all.

Robert Dyer said...

7:41: Not for long. I called him out on this on Twitter. If the shameless promotion of BM continues, I will alert the Inspector General to this activity. Cease and desist!

Robert Dyer said...

9:21: You publicly associate yourself with the magazine, Hans Riemer and George Leventhal, and then make a racist statement about Asian people - not a good look, folks.

Robert Dyer said...

9:21: By the way, I noticed you didn't call BM reporter a "vampire" when his photos of Tapp'd were taken at night, and there weren't any people in the photos. So you obviously are with the magazine, or you would have posted that comment over there.

Sure you will. Like you called 311 about the pile of snow in Westbard.

Does Dyer really believe that saying "Mean Little South Asian Man" means that all South Asians are little and mean? Or is he just being his usual hysterical self?

Is it just me are Dyer's delusions getting worse? I really hope he doesn't truly believe half the things he says. Otherwise he might need help

Robert Dyer said...

12:11: Nope, you need help. The Post plagiarized my exclusive report to add details to their lightweight article, without crediting me. The whole Whitman community can tell you, because I was the only news source with any details on the wreck for more than 12 hours. No TV. No radio. No websites. Just me, knucklehead. Everybody else was asleep at the switch, except for the Post stealing from my reporting.
