Theresa Caballero hates the media, has sued media outlets and reporters for slander and defamation and threatens them all the time. She blogs about her cases all the time but she FAILED to update her readers with the latest news - she LOST her case against KVIA. Or rather, I believe the case was thrown out by the judge, meaning it had no merit.

What a loser. This proves she isn't open and honest. She only "reports" what she wants you to know, not facts that reveal the ugly truth about her.

I'd like to see the full run down on this. Sometimes cases are thrown out because of a technicality. Theresa might yet prevail if a serious injustice was perpetrated. Will Stephanie be reporting on this at noon or Celina at 4 PM? We deserve to know and we demand answers.

Are you by any chance Jaime Remigio Abeytia? There is a deadbeat dad from Aeizona currently living in El Paso and he goes by that name.

KVIA already briefly mentioned it a few days ago.
It is beneath them to gloat.

Which broadcast was that on? I want to search their video archives to see if for myself.

Is wasn't a video news report. It was just a mention by the anchor. Don't know the date. Within the last week.

Is Jim Genital still the station manager at KVIA? If so, I'd expect for him to make a comment as he is a straight shooter.

Not a joke at all. I apologize if I misspelled his name but I think he was the station manager not too long ago.

KVIA SHAM REPORTING

Austin, TX

#13 May 9, 2011
This morning KVIA reported that when Dante Vance was called to testify that he was nowhere to be found. They did not report that the DA screwed up the subpoena process and that Dante Vance was subpoenaed to appear on May 2, 2011 and that he wasn't served with the subpoena until May 3, 2011. They also left out that in light of this error that the Judge screwed up in issuing the arrest warrant i.e. writ of attachment. Last week they screwed up when reporting the exact familial relationship of Sally Mena to Manuel Barraza. Even though this case has been going on forever, they didn't report correctly that Sally Mena is Manuel Barraza's sister. I have no doubt that their reporting is similarly factually incorrect when it comes to Theresa Caballero.

Those are great points. KVIA has a long history of incompetence from Hunt getting arrested to Paul Begala cursing on the air to the morning weathermen, Jorge something, who can't get a forecast right to save his life. I think the station needs to clairfy these things if they're ever going to get out from under the cloud which envelops them.

They did report those facts, you must have missed them but I heard them. They had all the details about the dates, etc.

And the fact remains that they are not guilty of slander or defamation. Nice attempt at deflection, although with lies.

What's the lie? Last week I was watching Good Morning America when the local news break came on. They got the relationship between Manuel Barraza and Sally Mena wrong, even though this is not a new story to be reporting on. I almost called in to tell them they got their information wrong. Then, this morning again I was watching Good Morning America when Hillary Floren came on the the news break. She specifically said that when Dante Vance's name was called, that he was "nowwhere to be found." I believe that at least one if not more than one news outlet had reported prior to my seeing Hillary Floren's report this morning that the warrant or writ of attachment was withdrawn due to the prosecution's mistake. I didn't know about Theresa losing on the Motion for Summary Judgment until after I saw something on this forum and looked it up on the El Paso website. But if she lost, it doesn't mean she was wrong with respect to KVIA's shabby reporting. It might mean that the judge found that she was telling the truth, but that KVIA didn't INTENTIONALLY slander her, or that the Judge found that she was telling the truth about whatever KVIA said but the Judge didn't consider it slanderous. This morning they showed a shot of Theresa standing in Court when they were reporting - this morning KVIA basically appeared to be insinuating that Dante Vance didn't show up because he had something to hide, when in fact the service of the subpoena was defective, and that the prosecution was inept to not even have one of what I believe would be their major witnesses served with a subpoena prior to trial day. It would also appear that KVIA was trying to make Theresa look bad by broadcasting that her client's son failed to respond to a subpoena, as if Theresa had something to do with it, rather than the State's sloppiness.

When a judge rules in favor of a summary judgment motion, it kinds of kicks a case out before a jury even has the opportunity to evaluate the evidence. I remain curious regarding which judge it was that kicked this case out.

Also, maybe I should watch the Today show instead of GMA so that when the local news break comes on I can get more reliable reporting.

She didn't sue for shabby news reporting, she sued for slander, you lying idiot. KVIA was correct. When Vance was called he was nowhere to be found. The reasons unfolded later and have been included in reports since then.

All the specifics in your posts show us clearly that you are very close to Caballero so your bias clouds your mind and your hearing. Try as you might you will not change public opinion about her Village Idiot status. She is an embarrassment to this city.

That son did not help his mother's case. He testified that he LIED on his application for the job. True charactered revealed there. Previous testimony about his poor attendance record at work and slacker ways tells the rest of the story.

He was served before he was called so the judge did not have to resind the arrest warrant.

"Prosecutors said Vance was served a subpoena to appear on Monday, May 2 and everyday afterward until dismissed."
