Is Bergosh back on PNJ forums?

January 8, 2008

Since Escambia County school board member Jeff Bergosh admitted he was the infamous Godzilla on the daily newspaper’s website, there is a new anonymous commenter on the site that goes by the name “King Richard.” He claims to be from Tallahassee, but seems to be a big fan of Bergosh – often telling readers to visit Bergosh’s website, jeffbergosh.net.

Surely, Bergosh wouldn’t be so stupid. Check it out and see what you think.

Here is one email:

Schneider and crew prove again to fail to grasp the full import of the decision made by the Board. While I understand that due to time constraints, such cursory news reporting to be the touchstone of the TV media, I expect in depth, thoughtful reporting from the print media. I guess the PNJ has reached its zenith and is truly a “mean” paper (there are two denotations here and pun Schneider…get it).
Jeff Bergosh gives insight to the vote last night and proves to be magnanimous, which is a concept and trait Schneider and crew fail to apprehend.

    Looking through the huge number of comments on the forums yesterday regarding the superintendent, I found it interesting that there were no comments from “King Richard” “Godzilla” or Jeff Bergosh. Perhaps, as he demonstrated with his vote on the Washington issue, he is not into kicking people when they are down. I further noticed that he did not show up on the news and also said “no comment” to PNJ when asked about the superintendent’s issue. Imagine, if you will, a hypothetical going the other way:

    If Jeff Bergosh was in this sort of a jam, Ronnie would be issuing media statements, sending out press releases to all 6000 ECSD employees, and Spinning the problem up like a Texas Twister!

    You know this to be true, Rick.

    What? anonymous blogging is so much more wrong than breaking the law by DUI.

    So…did Godzilla force liquor down Paul’s mouth and help him blow a 0.128?? Rick, no news of this yet on your blog? Did the PNJ out scoop you?

    ….”That goodzilla poster from this ‘string’ sounds pretty ‘dull'”!!!

    I use punctuation and quotation marks—according to “Goodzilla” I must be “Bergosh”? Or could I be someone else?

    Goodzilla–you are a “hoot”

    Are the INWeekly writers PNJ water carriers?

    Kudzu is right. This is not a story, because Bergosh is allowed to voice his opinion via his own website. Just because someone throws it in Schneider’s face via a link to the Bergosh website on the PNJ forum does not mean it is Bergosh doing it. The majority of the forum posters in the wake of the godzilla incident strongly supported Bergosh. Everyone saw that. This entry does not make sense.

    Why is the Inweekly cowtowing and acquiesing to the PNJ with this entry, attacking the PNJ’s recent favorite target. Maybe Gannet is taking over the Inweekly.

    Who cares! My only thought here is why are you doing the PNJs bidding? Does Doyle/Schneider control you or threaten you to do this? Let them do their own detective work. My thoughts are you are wrong and the PNJ is mad that someone criticized them as being a “mean” paper, so now they, through you as a surrogate, are kicking the proverbial dog. You must have this guy’s phone #, why don’t you just call him and ask? Or, ask him to take a polygraph test and ask him the one question, “Are you King Richard.” Wow, would you eat cake and admit that you were wrong if he weren’t?
