You’re welcome here! Negativity is always in season

 

 

The other day Fronnie explained why she’s had a change in editorial policy…

I did not endorse candidates in the 2017 Burbank Primary nor will I endorse candidates in the upcoming April 11 Burbank General Election. However, I will continue to cover the city elections and politics in general here on Media City Groove.

By the way, comments on this site have been closed for about a year and will remain that way for the foreseeable future. If I decide to accept comments again, the same high standards used in the past will apply. Those who want to spew “alternative facts,” make vicious baseless personal attacks or try to create a toxic climate with harassment, bullying, hate speech, excessive profanity …etc. will still be rejected and not allowed to post on this site.

Media City Groove will never be a platform for those types of negative comments and the peddlers of that kind of cyber chatter.

Reasonable statements and letters to the editor by authors using their real names, and not pseudonyms, will still be considered.

Everyone’s so high and mighty these days. It’s such a sententious bore. You’d think this was Miss Blossom’s Finishing School and Secretarial Academy around here, or almost everywhere now, what with all these delicate sensibilities and lofty language being thrown around, our future next mayor included.

And when did she ever have enough comments for this to be a problem? Actually, the real reason for this change of hers is because she’s afraid that conflict and disagreement from any direction might hurt her new Magnolia Park business. It’s the same reason why your barber keeps his mouth shut about religion.

    I read that fuck her.

    • Al in No. Cal

      I just had a great laugh. Thank you!
      She doesn’t like alternative facts, vicious baseless personal attacks, harassment, bullying hate speech, etc. I guess that includes most of the City Council!!!

      • semichorus

        Specific examples?

        There never are any with the booster crowd. Just innuendo. Those terrible people! Just look at them! Been that way in Burbank for years.

        It’s going to be fun to watch Mayor Rogers initiate a policy of siccing the police on people in the chambers. I always knew he had it in him.

        I’m sorry to add that Fronnie’s full of crap as well. She didn’t cease taking comments a “year” ago; she’s never had many to begin with to warrant a problem; and since they’re moderated pre-publication there’s no conflict or ill-nature problem to begin with. That’s what the delete key is for.

        No, she’s just deliberately adding to the phony script about these menacing critics. Which suggests that she’s a Springer supporter and doesn’t want to admit it.

  2. Free Speech is a right

    “Those who want to spew “alternative facts,” make vicious baseless personal attacks or try to create a toxic climate with harassment, bullying, hate speech, excessive profanity …etc. will still be rejected and not allowed to post on this site.”

    What this really means is …. If you disagree with me and my view you are alternative facts and you are hateful and creating a toxic climate.

    These Hillary faithful really want to be followed and obeyed in all things. They believe that there is no opinion but their own and all others must be silenced. Wake up everyone, while Rogers sits and says he is afraid of Trump and you should be too … it is not Trump sitting there attacking people and spewing alternative facts it is Rogers doing that. It appears that the toxic climate at city hall is coming from the person pointing at others … Rogers

      I get a kick out of Rogers calling other people “Trumpian.” He often crosses over into the same tactics.

      And I’m a left-wing Democrat.

      “What this really means is …. If you disagree with me and my view you are alternative facts and you are hateful and creating a toxic climate.” TRUE

      “They [Hillary supporters] believe that there is no opinion but their own and all others must be silenced.”: I’d say look in the mirror – it has and always has been Republicans who dislike the very notion of Free Speech. I’m not talking about speech without consequences – I’m talking about being able TO talk, write, etc. Think book burning – the religious right, etc. They HATE that people have a right to speak, to protest (gasp).

      As for alternative facts – let’s talk Trump crowd size – LOL

    Well at least she has the balls to state her rules, unlike Jess’ City of Burbank Facebook page.

    • Al in SoCal

      I agree w/ this – and I think he should change the name – then he wouldn’t need to include everyone – like the Berlin’s Taxpayers Yahoo group.

      • semichorus

        Berlins never called it “Burbank California.”

        Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think they started moderating it after Rogers and a few others got in there and began to disrupt it.

        • Al in SoCal

          Definitely, they did not call it Burbank, CA. It was called Taxpayers etc etc.. I agree, he should change the name, then he could include / exclude just like the Berlins did.

          That said, the Berlins always had a filter for who could join, but the past is the past.

  4. JENNIFER JEAN

    This woman looks down on everyone.
    She stopped her response section because
    it was embarrassing how few came in.
    We all know she doesn’t want a discussion.
    She wants to be in charge.

    • Maggie Park

      Once she and her hubby signed papers for their Sweet Shoppe on with the cheerleader outfit.
      While she once covered some of the ongoing Mag Park issues, putting on the apron stopped all of that.
      Fronnie is now Romancin’ certain businesses.
      Her objectivity went ker-plop.

    • My Reese Place

      Semichorus you are right about the Berlins and their group Burbank Voters and Taxpayers. It was after Rogers and Lombardo came in to insult and bully people that the moderation began. I was in that group and it was not alternative facts and never called City of Burbank. The fact that facebook page is called City of Burbank itself is an alternative fact.
