Please continue to shed light on this subject. The evil doers prefer darkness. Amazing insight. I wonder if Vanessa has any potential tort claims against these idiots. Well put together article, DBO. Continue your cause by all means!

what a great article. thanks for helping get the word out. the pocono record is even worse than the toledo blade.

it enrages me that an unbalanced rescue angel and a flunky reporter got away with trashing the victim and lying about the verdict. they need to be held accountable.

i hope the next dangerous dog that comes before judge cooper is shown no mercy.

There were so many untruths being knowingly spread in this situation.

For example, reporter Howard Frank did not reveal that the parties who developed this false story were connected and had operated as a "No Kill" cadre within that area, attacking other people in the community at local meetings, and slandering them as well as being vicious and combative. This behavior was reported in other local media, and the individuals were named. It's more or less the same group who organized this attack on Vannessa and on the truth.

At least one had heavily promoted Nathan Winograd for "consulting jobs."

As a commenter had posted, Nathan Winograd has gotten personally involved with people like this and advised their plan of attack, as well as directly manipulating reporters, and even attacking and threatening reporters who do not toe the line and have the audacity to ask questions and push for the truth. An Austin Texas reporter wrote a column which revealed his behavior.

A very disturbing issue with Mr. Frank was not just the complete and utter deceit about what happened in the case and the courtroon, which is improper enough for any reporter, but that beggings for cash donations were put forward by Mr. Frank on behalf of some of this group, who did not even reveal that they owned the charity begging for the money!

I cannot imagine any more clear example of unethical journalism. Journalists have been let go for lesser breaches of ethics than this.

The problem, however, which makes this truly dangerous, is that this deceit involved a dangerous dog who had attacked two people. The potential for a future death is overwhelmingly high, and a reporter played a role in knowingly creating great danger.

The Pocono Record carries a great burden with this unethical reporting. Someone was asleep at the wheel and was not acting as the arbiter of truth and ethics, namely an editor or even the publisher.

Here are some specifics into the Pocono Record, and also an indication of the abysmally low level of credibility.

And one of the more terrible examples of this attack on Vanessa Carlton is that a member of this cadre that organized the coverup of this dangerous dog actually posted that they "wished" that Ms. Carlton would get rabies!

We see this again and again with the pit bull advocates- blaming the victim and viciously attacking the victim who is still healing from their potentially deadly dog attack.

I lived through this exact scenario after I was attacked. I am VERY happy to have this dirty tactic exposed.

It's a Tragedy, Winograd is at the bottom of a lot of shit. That link for the Austin story is http://www.austinchronicle.com/gyrobase/Issue/story?oid=696455

And an even better story about how Winograd intimidates reporters was done by Craig Malisow in Houston. Winograd actually accused Malisow of trying to blackmail him, payment so Malisow would not write the story. Malisow is a pit bull owner, by the way, but still a good and fair reporter.

Winograd is the conductor and the rest follow.

It's despicable what these thugs have done to Vanessa Carlton. I can't help but feel that crimes have been committed against her as well as crimes against what should be considered a NOBLE profession - journalism. Who do reporters answer to besides their newspaper bosses? Who or what oversees and regulates the media?

I'm sorry, I forgot to post the link that gives the specific information about the persons running the Pocono Record and their credibility record.

I have nothing meaningful to add except my support of this incredibly comprehensive expose of total insanity and mass hysteria. I also commend Craven Desires because that blog laid it all out so I could understand the weird, crazy,selfish, and despicable motivations of the actors in this horror show.

I cannot imagine what it must be like to be a child in that household with Bella the bloodthirsty star.

THIS DOG JUST ATTACKED A 17 YEAR OLD GIRL(OWNERS STEP DAUGHTER) AND NOW THEY PUT THE DOG DOWN ITS ABOUT TIME
THEY BOUGHT THIS DOG FROM A STRANGER OFF THE SIDE OF THE ROAD NOT KNOWING ANYHTING ABOUT WHERE THE DOG CAME FROM OR ITS BACKGROUND
THATS 3 BITES FOR THIS DOG THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN PUT DOWN A LONG TIME AGO

Wow! I hope Bella's owners were sued to the roof, but I won't be happy until there is criminal justice for these sadistic people. I cannot believe how many similar stories exist. I am new to this topic & shocked at now many keep coming up. I see terms like "trial" and "death penalty" for the dogs, used by media only in the cases of VICIOUS ATTACKS BY PIT BULLS. This is very telling. It seems that the only justice and safe actions we see, is what takes place when a pitbull is killed at the scene, during the attack. It's unfortunate that it's come to this, but the Google story that comes up when you search for "brave lady takes on two pit bulls" shows the pit bulls' owner, in a fit of anger that her pit bulls were killed several blocks from home, in the process of attacking this lady and her dogs, which happened already on numerous occasions, which is why she began to take her dogs on walks armed and prepared. (No gun this time). As seen with a case of little Kevin Vicente, these people will go to great expense to save a Pit Bull, but don't give a rat about a little child who horrifically mauled by the dog and disfigured. They were going to go to any length to save the dog and blame the boy, who was attacked from behind (PREY DRIVE is behind pit bull attacks), and the PIT PUSHERS didn't care anything about him whatsoever. This is sickening! And someone needs to make a stop.
