With the revelation, January 15th, on Sherman Baldwin's WBRK radio talk show that Liberal Democrat Berkshire County Sheriff Carmen Massimiano may be a child molester, The Berkshire Eagle is now in full attack mode seeking vengeance upon the messenger who carried the explosive message.
The Eagle is set to run a hit piece on Sherman Baldwin no doubt in order to punish him for exposing the scandal (and scooping The Eagle) with the hope that it will pressure WBRK's owner to fire Baldwin and hopefully run him out of town.
Not only has a powerful local Berkshire Liberal Democrat sacred cow been brought down, but the whole matter plainly reflects on The Berkshire Eagle's own failure to report an explosive story that it had been sitting on for many months -- IF NOT YEARS!
Note that none other than hatchetman Clarence Fanto is the one writing the attack piece for The Eagle.

The following appeared in yesterday's Albany Times-Union, apparently precipitated by Fanto's coming story.
Note also that Rex Smith, editor of the Times-Union, is a good buddy of Clarence Fanto from Mr. Fanto's days working for Alan Chartock and WAMC in Albany.
'Sherman Baldwin will talk about his past'
February 10, 2010
by Chris Churchill
As the Times Union has previously reported, former WROW (590 AM) afternoon host Sherman Baldwin has somewhat of a checkered past.

He committed fraud to help fund “The Crow,” a 1994 movie, and spent eight months in federal prison.“I cooked the books and devoted $1 million to the film,” Baldwin told me last year.“The movie would have died without me.”

He also has a rather complicated connection (as Tad Baldwin) to the Michael Skakel trial for the murder of Martha Moxley.
Baldwin, who was fired by WROW last year and who works now for WBRK in the Berkshires, has never really talked about his past on the radio, although he was honest with me when asked.

But in anticipation of what he believes is an upcoming expose in the Berkshire Eagle newspaper, Baldwin has called a press conference to clear the air. From an announcement he sent out today:

"Sherman Baldwin of Talk Berkshires will hold a press conference Friday February 12th at 4:15pm. The press conference will air live during his radio show and take place at the WBRK studios located at 100 North Street in Pittsfield, MA.

"'It has come to my attention that Clarence Fanto of the Berkshire Eagle will be publishing an article about me in this Sunday’s paper. In an effort to make sure that the entire story is told I am holding this press conference to answer any and all questions about my past prior to locating here in the Berkshires.'"

Didn't we get rid of this no-talent once already when he went to Albany? How is it possible that he got recycled in this market?
What is really amusing is that they are going to hold a 'press conference' presumably for the benefit of the fraud that is the 'Berkshire News Network'(better known as Larry Crackhead ripping and reading from the Eagle every morning).
What a country. LOL

Yeah. That would have been a HUGE loss for the culture. LOL

The Eagle's censors are in high gear today.

As, it would seem, is your ever growing paranoia.

Might I suggest that a rational human being might wait a short period of time before making accusations that might make them look foolish? As in the case of asserting some sort of censorship, which is obviously aimed specifically at the the individual poster, when in fact their post is entirely intact.

You think "geronimo" is me, dumbass? You're still at this shit? You are a liar and a fraud. You're always a no show, and now you're lying to someone who's not me about it?

You've never shown up at any meeting and you know it. You know you're lying about it. You're simply too terrified of the consequences for you to even venture out from behind your cheap computer, you pathetic little nancyboy.

Huh? No, I think he's the piece of crap who wouldn't show up to fight you. You're as psychotic as he is but I think you at least show up when push comes to shove.

There's no such word as "pisst," moron. It's "pissed." I'm not using different names, your paranoid dolt.

Go tell more lies about a horrible tragedy somewhere else.
