Robert Knight is trash.
That's all he is.
He's really luck that C.I. has class because someone without would have told him where to go long ago.
When Robert Knight was repeatedly asking for community attention, he and the program Flashpoints received it. And the community got behind that program and donated to support it. And what was the thanks?
Do you remember?
A story C.I. had called out in real time was only getting noted weeks later by Flashpoints fave. Listening to the Flashpoints crew blather on with praise and ignore C.I. was bad enough. But they went beyond just their fave present and started crediting others including FAIR. But, reality, C.I. was there before anyone.
And reality, when others in the community raised a stink, FAIR knew they and others were in the wrong and that idiot Jim N. at FAIR wrote that ridiculous e-mail to C.I. bowing and scraping for forgiveness but, note, never found time to give C.I. credit at FAIR.
Now the community was enraged to hear the Flashpoints crew list all the people THEY WERE WILLING TO CREDIT when the person who first called it out, first documented it, got zilch. When others -- such as FAIR -- built their 'work' around C.I.'s got credit but C.I. didn't, that showed you the ethics of the likes of Robert Knight.
Despite the fact that he repeatedly requested this and that be noted or done (it was more than twice, I spoke to Jess as well as Jim -- Jess has kept a tally since 2005 of every e-mail that comes into C.I. from the media) he writes this nasty little e-mail and then wants to wonder what the problem is?
"Robert" Knight wants to pretend like he doesn't get it.
I've had it with these trashy people. I was raised to give credit to anyone who earned it, to say thank you to anyone who helped me. Apparently "Robert" was raised by wolves.
I'm tired of the Beggar Media. They're a bunch of thieves who only panic when they're about to be exposed. (Jim N. comes running to C.I. with a frantic e-mail when Rebecca noted how C.I. got ripped off at her site. The most important thing to Jim N. was not apologizing to C.I., it was trying to shut up Rebecca, to silence her from talking.)
I'm so sick of these thieves.
Ruth's mistake? She thought Robert Knight was White and listed him as such in her year end report. Despite all the many wonderful things she's written about "Robert" over the years, he shows up with a nasty little e-mail screaming his head off.
I wish he'd done that in person and I would have been present. I would've slapped his face. Someone needs to.
And, "Robert," you shame your parents with your bad manners.
