The Brett Kimberlin Saga:

Follow this link to my BLOCKBUSTER STORY of how Brett Kimberlin, a convicted terrorist and perjurer, attempted to frame me for a crime, and then got me arrested for blogging when I exposed that misconduct to the world. That sounds like an incredible claim, but I provide primary documents and video evidence proving that he did this. And if you are moved by this story to provide a little help to myself and other victims of Mr. Kimberlin’s intimidation, such as Robert Stacy McCain, you can donate at the PayPal buttons on the right. And I thank everyone who has done so, and will do so.

Pathetic: Piers Morgan Brags About Being #1... at CNN

So I was checking what was going on in Gun Control Country and I saw this tweet by Piers Morgan:


So I said to myself, “that can’t be right.  He’s beating Fox?”

Well, no, he is excited about this story over at Mediaite:

Tuesday Ratings: Piers Morgan Beats All Of CNN In Total Viewers And Demo

On Tuesday night, Piers Morgan beat the rest of his CNN colleagues in both total viewership and the key 25-54 demo.

Racking up 225k demo viewers, Morgan beat out his next-highest-rated colleague in Anderson Cooper, who scored 209k demo viewers.

And in total viewership, Morgan garnered 797k viewers, beating out Cooper, who had 659k total.

And that is all nice and good, and I am sure he will appreciate the relative job security.  I have often joked that in a workplace the law of the jungle applies: you don’t have to be faster than the lion, just faster than the guy next to you.  So he is faster than all the other guys next to him, so CNN is not likely to fire this “winner” any time soon.

But at the same time, this isn’t really much of winning.

For instance, in the 25-54 demographic, he is still being beaten by Hannity (342k).  Indeed his 225k was less even than Rachel Maddow’s 304k.  In fact every single Fox News Show scored higher than his, including The5 (a.k.a. “Red Eye for Non-Insomniacs”) with 261k.  This is at 5 p.m., by the way, when most people are still at work.  It gets worse ratings than Baier (312k), Shep (348k), O'Reilly’s 8 pm and 11 pm slots (393k and 245k, respectively).  The only one he comes close to is Greta at 245k.  And for that matter, he is also beaten by Chris Matthews in his 5pm slot (247k).  Which suggests that his job is only secure as long as Brett Baier, Sheppard Smith, Bill O’Reilly (twice), Sean Hannity, Greta Van Susteren, Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow doesn’t want it.

Meanwhile it gets uglier with total viewers.  Of course he continues to be trounced by all of Fox.  But now he is being trounced by almost all of MSNBC, too.  His 797k total viewers, is beaten by Matthews at 5 and 7 pm (942k and 815k respectively), “Fast Eddie” Schultz at 8pm (854k), Maddow (983k) and O’Donnell (866k).  The only people he beats over there is Sharpton (703k) and Schultz’s 11 pm rerun (462k).  So basically if his employers don’t worry so much about that key demographic (fat chance), Fast Eddie could take his job, too.

And overall, Fox is still the number one network, MSNBC is number two (at least that night) and CNN is number three.  It is only beating Headline News, and really given what HN has to work with, they are actually doing pretty good.  So congratulations, Morgan on your job security and being number one, on a number three network!  Which led me to this sarcastic modified tweet (MT):

My wife and I have lost our jobs due to the harassment of convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin, including an attempt to get us killed and to frame me for a crime carrying a sentence of up to ten years.  I know that claim sounds fantastic, but if you read starting here, you will see absolute proof of these claims using documentary and video evidence.  If you would like to help in the fight to hold Mr. Kimberlin accountable, please hit the Blogger’s Defense Team button on the right.  And thank you.

Disclaimer:

I have accused some people, particularly Brett Kimberlin, of reprehensible conduct.  In some cases, the conduct is even criminal.  In all cases, the only justice I want is through the appropriate legal process—such as the criminal justice system.  I do not want to see vigilante violence against any person or any threat of such violence.  This kind of conduct is not only morally wrong, but it is counter-productive.

In the particular case of Brett Kimberlin, I do not want you to even contact him.  Do not call him.  Do not write him a letter.  Do not write him an email.  Do not text-message him.  Do not engage in any kind of directed communication.  I say this in part because under Maryland law, that can quickly become harassment and I don’t want that to happen to him.

And for that matter, don’t go on his property.  Don’t sneak around and try to photograph him.  Frankly try not to even be within his field of vision.  Your behavior could quickly cross the line into harassment in that way too (not to mention trespass and other concerns).

And do not contact his organizations, either.  And most of all, leave his family alone.

The only exception to all that is that if you are reporting on this, there is of course nothing wrong with contacting him for things like his official response to any stories you might report.  And even then if he tells you to stop contacting him, obey that request.  That this is a key element in making out a harassment claim under Maryland law—that a person asks you to stop and you refuse.

And let me say something else.  In my heart of hearts, I don’t believe that any person supporting me has done any of the above.  But if any of you have, stop it, and if you haven’t don’t start.
