I'm going to try to be professional here. You keep attacking the victims in this whole Meola affair. You actually defend the cheaters Ashley and Meola. You question why the website is not a cyber bullying law violation.

Let me explain this for you. I understand you're doing the bidding for Meola and crew. That's obvious. I also understand you're doing your own backtracking because you ran the full press release before the press conference even happened. That was your journalistic mistake. Don't try defending Meola though in order to cover your own butt.

As for the website. First, it is about a PUBLIC FIGURE. By extension, Ashley is a public figure as a former candidate, committee member AND the subject of the affair. Ashley Dupree couldn't claim damages when she became infamous in the Spitzer scandal because, like here, the allegations were TRUE. And she was a subject of the scandal.

Second, nowhere on the website or press release does it claim any wrongdoing by the UPD. If anything, the UPD has confirmed everything he said. They confirmed there was a domestic dispute, but they say he didn't press charges. Neither did Kriten Longo. They confirm that he did contact them regarding the theft of money, but they claim it wasn't criminal because they were married. The original claims that it was a joint account were not true. It was not a joint account. But the real thing is that he was told by her that Meola had her back and was threatened that he would lose his job. You will get those text messages, too. So, nothing about the website is very scandalous or false. The scandalous part is the actions in which Frank Meola, the Council President and City Chairman, engaged in himself. All are true.

Forget criminal charges, he doesn't even have a civil claim because the allegation are TRUE.

Look back at how many times you have reported on sex scandals and other stuff. Now you suddenly want to protect a man that is a convicted felon and has been caught cheating on his wife while in office? Sick.

And you ask if it's a news story?!?! Well, you ran with a story about Zecca the day before the election and posted a phone call that had very little to do with Zecca. Does that mean Zecca should file criminal charges against you for cyber bullying? Nothing in Washburn's claims had any proof. Here you have actual PROOF beyond a reasonable doubt and you play dumb. Get a grip. You are only hurting Meola the more you talk about it.

Funny part is that you are defending him more than his own family, half of which are livid at him. Keep up the good work.

I add to this discussion. If Keeler thinks he's upsetting or getting back at Alex by defending Meola, he's dumber than I thought. Everytime he says "this isn't a story" - he then goes on talking about it for an hour. No matter how hard he tried to defend Meola, he's getting the info out and people are pissed. If he really wanted to help Meola and piss off Alex, he'd totally ignore it like WKTV and WUTR. They are the ones that will have some explaining to do.

So, I wouldn't get so upset at Keller. He's doing exactly what was expected and doing it well. Keep spreading the news, Bill.

why doesn't he report the truth about Tony Jabour of Tomas Lebanese Deli. The truth that he is a pervert and had sexual relations with a minor and is on probation as a sex offender! The truth that Tomas did not close due to the economy, but due to the fact that Tony Jabour stole $34,000 from the NYS lottery commission for his crack-addict prostitute girlfriend. Keeler and WIBX need to get the story straight about local criminals, sex offenders, and dirt bags!

so did Tony Jabour steal all the money from Tomas to pay for his girlfriends coke/crack habit? Is that why his mother is now crying bankruptcy?
