Leave Meg Alone! SF Weekly Responds to Cruel Blogger Calbuzz.

Posted By on Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 10:30 AM

The statewide politics blog Calbuzz probably thinks it's really clever urging journalists to pick on teen hearthrob Gavin Newsom and pornsite founder Meg Whitman. But we don't think they're funny at all.

The blog says it's launching a Chronicle Watch feature to check whether our local daily is fact checking Gavin Newsom's stump speeches.

"To hear him tell it, there's seemingly no area of public policy where the Superman Mayor has not made San Francisco a veritable paradise on earth," Calbuzz writes of Newsom's declarations.

As for Whitman: "Note to the Silicon Valley paper of record, the San Jose Mercury News: we're eagerly awaiting those bleeding-edge stories on Meg Whitman," the post says. Calbuzz is "eager for clues about "management skills, temperament, vision... and anything else that will shed light on whether candidates in your back yard are qualified to be governor."

Readers of SF Weekly' have learned all they need to know about Newsom and Whitman's awesome vision, temperment, and management skills. Newsom is the former squire and alleged alcohol provider to underaged Brittanie Mountz. He's a total stud.

And Whitman is founder and former chief curator of perhaps the nastiest -- and thus economically astute and culturally forward-looking -- porn sales site in the world.

In 1998, just as eBay was preparing an initial stock offering, Whitman oversaw the creation of a special eBay site exclusively for the sale of pornography and sex devices. In spite of Internet video, there's still a market for cutting-edge material best sold in discreetly shippable form. Currently up for bid: liquid-filled masturbating devices and lots and lots of torture-themed product.

If Calbuzz had its way, reporters would be sifting through Whitman's personal stock-trading data and voting records, or writing about what a sham Gavin Newsom's homeless policies are.

Through tear-streaked mascara (and with apologies to Chris Crocker,) SF Weekly has a message for Calbuzz: 

How fucking dare anyone out there pester Gav and Meg after all they've been through!

They're HUMANS! What you don't realize is that Meg is making Californians a lot of money. And don't you see how hot Gavin is? 

But all you want is for the Merc to write a bunch of crap about them.

All you people want is MORE! MORE-MORE, MORE: MORE!.

LEAVE HER ALONE! You are lucky they're even running for governor for you BASTARDS!

You want journalist professionalism? Speaking of professionalism, when is it professional to publicly bash someone who wants to help California?

Leave Meg and Gavin Alone Please.... !
Leave Meg and Gavin Alone!...right now!....I mean it.!

Anyone that has a problem with Meg and Gavin, you deal with me, because they're not well right now.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
