Does anyone know what happened to radionewz.net ? It has been offline for awhile and no tweets from Radio since 7/3.

Murt took her down

That is the question of the hour. I for one miss Radio and some of the commentators who frequent her blog such as CM. I saw a Twitter account that said Radio was taking a break but also saw that Murt say the blog will be gone for good. I would hope that Murt has nothing to do with Radio's absence being I've read blog posts of his defaming Radio as well. In my opinion, Murt can not cry defamation when he does the same thing to others. Two wrongs do not make a right. There is a difference between defamation and individuals who do not like one another talking smack about each other. Juvenile crap talking law suits do not belong in a court of law, IMO.

Radio's blog allowed space for opposing viewpoints on many issues but specifically Steubenville. I will admit the Steubenville Truthers have changed my opinions on some aspects of the case, not the main issues, but seeing their viewpoint did make me look at the situation a bit differently. What happened to Jane Doe was cruelty at it's worst and there is absolutely no adequate reason to justify, excuse, or validate what occurred that night and in the following days. What didn't cross my mind is what the innocent boys and their families went through realizing their name was on that list released by Anonymous on Christmas Eve. Without Radio's blog I probably wouldn't of given a second thought to the innocent boys first named by Anonymous.

I hope Radio is not gone for good.

Radio, like prinnie and lenny has been shut down for spreading lies and rumors. They got what was coming to them, just like the rest of the hate mongers can expect.

Prinnie is going strong. She handily won a dismissal of the Saltsmans' ridiculous lawsuit: http://prinniefied.com/wp/case-dismissed/ . The dismissal was a reaffirmation of the right to free speech and validation that what Prinnie was reporting was free speech.

You have no idea what happened to Radionewz, which was a site that commented on hundreds of cases, not just this one. And Lenny, who knows. Maybe he'll be back.

The fact is, you're the only who has called an underage girl a whore publicly on this forum. How does that feel, ohwell/Snickers/etc.? Does it feel good to victimize this girl, who is still a minor? Does it feel good to post your elaborate fantasies of teen orgies online for everyone to read? You are BY FAR the sickest person who posts on this forum, so stop calling everyoe else a perv. It's just projection on your part. And stop faking spelling errors. We know you know how to spell. You're an idiot in hundreds of other ways, but you know how to spell.

Radio rarely posted her personal opinion on any case, she merely posted relevant topics discussed on social media. Neither her nor Prinnie spread lies or rumors, their respective blogs covered relevant news about the case as well as provided an outlet for individuals to discuss the case. That's not hardly being a hate monger. A hate monger would be a better description of the Twitter account holder trying to brush of the blame for the alcohol onto Jane Doe's mother. Firstly, if the allegations are true one bottle of vodka wasn't nearly enough for all those 40-50 teens at the first party to get that inebriated off of. Secondly, none of the parties were held in their home in WV. Lastly, trying to point the finger at the mother of a rape victim when there are obvious parents who should be held accountable for the lack of adult supervision provided to the multiple children in their respective homes is simply disgusting. That's lower than low, and they wonder why the rest of the world looks down on Steubenville.

Radio was the only way I found any information about the rape case, and it was all from the participants. Now all the voices have been silenced, the freedom of speech has been cut off. The only thing
I can read now is short articles about the grand jury reconvening for a day or two and then taking another long leave. I do not believe we will ever have a chance to hear the rest of the story about the corruption and continuing cover-up going on in Steubenville.

I'd like to know what happened to make Radio just leave like that. I genuinely enjoyed Radio's satire/spoof and did learn a lot about Steubenville in a very short time. If nothing else, I would like Radio to come back long enough to let everyone know she's doing alright. I'm sure she's doing just fine but you never know.

One would have to imagine that the FBI took it down. They can't and won't do anything about the corruption in the town, but they sure can make life difficult for information leakers like anon and these forum boards. Wonder how soon they'll be busting down our doors because we want to read more about the immoral town.

I don't know, if the FBI became involved I would think it was for good reason and I doubt the FBI would even consider stifling discussions about a small town and alleged corruption. The FBI is about justice and equality so if there is any truth behind the allegations made about cronyism and corruption I'd like to think they'd look into it. I doubt the FBI would care about feelings being hurt, in my opinion. I'd think they are concerned with important issues like matters of national safety.

This is just speculation of course but I was thinking someone might have sued Radio for defamation. I came across a blog through a google search that said Radio was gone for good because of a defamation allegation connected to the Cummings case. I can't remember the author or the blog name but google the phrase: " Radionewz.net gone defamation" and you should be able to find it fairly easily. I'm just speculating but maybe whoever brought the suit agreed to drop everything if she took the blog down. Whatever happened it would be nice to know what is going on.

The thing that concerns me most is the loss of free speech, with the silencing of both prinnies and radios forums. It was so shocking to read how just a very few individuals have financial control of the best paying public jobs. One would think the state attorney general would have investigated much more than the kids involved in the actual partying. The sad thing is that all towns are the same, the only things that change are the names and the faces.

Whoa, calm down there Geeeeeeze, let's go take your medicine. Everyone was talking nicely and peacefully, and you fly off the deep end name calling ie chucklheads, accusing folks as bullies. You are the only one attempting to bully here. Easy to see you are a troll, are you one of the rape apologists mothers, a corrupt politician, coach, or maybe even one of the talented football kids? If the latter, don't worry, coach will get you a job running the football parley sheets.

Did you ever think that maybe radio got discovered and outed by the ones whose lives she was trying to destroy. I wonder if she ended up in the hospital too?
I agree with you that there is a big difference between free speech and defamation. Your query as to if Radio is in the hospital too is quite suspect. That my dear is not free speech either. I find your various statements threatening in nature especially when you have labeled me as fat, a bully, a liar, and so on when I have not lied or spread rumors false or otherwise. Simply pointing out the many individuals who should be charged in connection with the rape of an unconscious girl is common sense. I suppose next time some may think before contradicting their own stories publicly. Your making excuses is what makes you the chucklehead, dear.

Why would the FBI care about a little town like Steubenville? The Justice Department, the department that includes the FBI, cared about the corruption of the Steubenville police fore in the 90s:

" 1996-1997: The United States vs. The City of Steubenville

After a year-long investigation, the Justice Department made Steubenville's police department just the second in history forced to sign an agreement setting up new measures to combat police corruption under the 1994 Crime Bill. Here is part of the 1997 ruling on misconduct involving the city police and the city manager — the same two offices, it turns out, that spoke out in this weekend's new fact-finding mission:

'The United States brings this action to enforce Section 210401 of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, 42 U.S.C.§ 14141. The United States alleges that officers of the Steubenville Police Department have engaged in a pattern or practice of conduct that deprives persons of rights, privileges, or immunities secured and protected by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, and that the City of Steubenville, the Steubenville Police Department, and the Steubenville City Manager (in his capacity as Director of Public Safety) have caused and condoned this conduct through inadequate policies and failure to train, monitor, supervise, and discipline police officers, and to investigate alleged misconduct.'

Part of that agreement involved promising to start a new training program for all police officers, including a special section on domestic violence, as well as a new internal-affairs policy. "

I'm sure the investigation must have been done by the FBI. It's weird that you don't know that, being a longtime Steubenville resident.

From 1980 to 2000, census figures show that the Weirton–Steubenville population dropped faster than any other urban area in the United States. That's faster than DETROIT for the same period. And the population decline continues. Could it be that people no longer want to live in a town with corrupt leadership and police? I wouldn't. Really, who in their right mind would?

Oh, that's right: criminals. People who produce child porn and gamble on kids' sports.

Probably also a high level "Deletion, destroying, and losing evidence seminar"? And maybe a neck swiveling program that helps them look the other way when certain "Good Steubenville family" members are involved in illegal activities?

Steubenville is gaining in population as people from Chicago keep showing up - oh, wait! That's the main drug pipeline to the area isn't it?

People are fleeing Steubenville like they're fleeing Detroit. No jobs. High crime. Corruption. The city's "elite" are like ticks feeding on a wounded animal. They'll bleed it until it dies.
