C'mon guys... is this the best you can do for news today? Why not just walk over to one of the malls on Topanga Cyn. and interview people in the food court about what they think?

You can do better than this.

Dita's got an awesome press crew, because this covers up the fact that she had to buy the rights for the video! Nice how they dance already the claims made by Dita as actually being proven.

This is funny & sad. Here I thought news here was reasonably screened, regardless of how outrageous the topic.
This appears to be from Dita's spin doctors. How can it be a victory to simply get back the rights of something you claim you own? Seems to me that's setting the bar pretty low! Damages? Low Revenue? I mean look at the boosting at the end about previous monetary wins!
The story itself reads like a press release -- Look at the claims about how Butler stole the rights...Doesn't this in fact also state that Butler was awarded the rights in court? Seems like someone is trying to make Miss Butler look bad. And why reference an employee's relative and business affiliates to stake a claim instead of an actual legal representatives of the company -- Afterall, GwenMedia existed as a business for a long time after Bob's death before it was handed over?
"Butler's attorney,...wasn't IMMEDIATELY available for comment". That's hilarious. Someone in the same room willing to comment can presented a "wasn't immediately available" -- if they paused a split second. I'd bet they never made a legit attempt to contact him.
From what I heard, a proposed settlement involved Dita buying the rights... It would seems this apparent press release would be more "bold" if Dita were outright rewarded the rights. So filtering through the spin, I'm more opt to believe that she had to buy the rights.
The spin. Funny. The fact that it was front page news. Sad.

In my opinon...ya'll are crazy! Leave Sinde alone! I don't know her that well, but I do know she is living her life & seems happy! Try it..living your own life..you never know..you might be happy yourself! Who cares what she did or didn't do in a lawsiut that affect you how??? It's her personal information...unless you were all invovled??? Who cares if you went to high school with her, I went to school with a few hundred people who know nothing about me! And in a small town like Grant, all you thought you knew honey was most likely a lie! People are so bored in small towns they make up gossip!! If you want to know Sinde, try speaking to her, if you want to keep spreading rumors don't bother! But I bet we can think up a few about you there So Sad, wouldn't want that now would you?
