Knox County, OH: The Bodies of Missing Stephanie Sprang, Tina Herrmann & Kody Maynard Found

November 18, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

Terrible news from Knox County, Ohio … three bodies discovered in Ohio. 

The bodies of missing Stephanie Sprang, Tina Herrmann & Kody Maynard have been found. The remains of the three were located in a wooded area inside of garbage bags in a hollow tree as a result of information provided by Matthew Hoffman. Hoffman had previously been arrested on kidnapping charges, when 13 year old Sarah Maynard was found tied up inside his home.

Kody Maynard, 10, Tina Herrmann, 32, and family friend Stephanie Sprang, 41

 ”Today this investigation took a major turn,” he said. “We have discovered and recovered the remains of Kody Maynard, Stephanie Sprang, and Tina Herrmann.”

Barber said the bodies were discovered “as a result of information provided by Matthew Hoffman” around 2:30 p.m. on Thursday.

“The bodies were located in a wooded area inside of garbage bags in a hollow tree,” he said. “One thing’s for sure, is he’s had some experience as a tree trimmer.”

Prosecutor John C. Thatcher said he could not confirm if Hoffman had given a confession, but called the discovery “the saddest day in Knox County history.”

Late Wednesday night articles of clothing were located. The incident began on when the four, Tina Herrmann, Sarah Maynard, Kody Maynard, and Stephanie Sprang mysteriously went missing on 11/10/2010. However, on Thursday the body of the three missing people were discovered in a tree in a wooded area.  

Barber said police had to cut into the tree to remove the three bodies. He said the victims were all wearing the same clothes they had last been seen in on Nov. 10. Barber suggested that Hoffman had hollowed out the tree himself saying, “Hoffman has worked as tree trimmer.”

Knox County Prosecutor John Thatcher said Hoffman would likely be brought up on additional charges, but could not specify what they would be.

CNN’s Bash: Was Tina Fey Edit First Time PBS Favored Republicans?

November 18, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

CNN's Dana Bash asked a great question on Tuesday: were Tina Fey's disgusting remarks about conservative women at the Mark Twain Awards "the first time that PBS has been accused of editing to favor Republicans?"

Almost as telling, CNN's Gloria Borger appearing with Bash on "John King USA" answered, "They edited out something Paul McCartney said that was offensive at one point to Republicans, so probably not" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

MRC-TV: Bozell Addresses PBS Editing Out Tina Fey’s Anti-Palin Jokes at Mark Twain Prize Ceremony

November 17, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

Upon receiving the Kennedy Center's Mark Train Prize for American Humor on November 9, comedian Tina Fey trashed Sarah Palin in her acceptance speech.

By the time PBS broadcast the taped ceremony, the taxpayer-subsidized network had edited out some of Fey's harsher jokes that maligned the former Alaska governor.

NewsBusters publisher and Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell appeared in studio on today's "Fox & Friends" to address the controversy, lauding PBS for doing the right thing by making those edits.

PBS EDITS Tina Fay’s “Sarah Palin” Insults During Broadcast of the Kennedy Center’s Mark Twain Prize

November 17, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

PBS “air brushes” Tina Fay’s comemnts to distort the liberal image.

After the NPR debacle, PBS running scared and felt the need to edit Tina Fay’s so-called comedy routine slamming Sarah Palin that was supposed to be humor. So why did PBS edit out parts of Tina Fay’s rant?  We second the question posed at News Busters, what happened to Fay’s repulsive comments passed off as humor about rape kits, lesbians, and evolution jokes against conservative women?

Fey, this year’s recipient of the prize, caused a few ripples during her acceptance speech at the ceremony on Tuesday when she mock-praised “conservative women” like Sarah Palin, whom Fey has so memorably impersonated on “Saturday Night Live.”

 

Watch the full episode. See more Mark Twain Prize.

The Sarah Palin slams begin around the 12:20 mark

“And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women - except, of course -those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape ‘kit ‘n’ stuff,” Fey said. “But for everybody else, it’s a win-win. Unless you’re a gay woman who wants to marry your partner of 20 years - whatever. But for most women, the success of conservative women is good for all of us. Unless you believe in evolution. You know - actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster.”

But that’s not what viewers heard when PBS and WETA (channel 26) broadcast an edited version of Fey’s speech on Sunday.

The part about rape kits and evolution was gone, leaving only Fey’s more harmonious — and blander — comments about Palin and politics: “I would be a liar and an idiot if I didn’t thank Sarah Palin for helping get me here tonight. My partial resemblance and her crazy voice are the two luckiest things that ever happened to me. All kidding aside, I’m so proud to represent American humor, I am proud to be an American, and I am proud to make my home in the ‘not real’ America. And I am most proud that during trying times, like an orange [terror] alert, a bad economy or a contentious election that we as a nation retain our sense of humor.”

Was PBS shielding its viewers from Fey’s more pointed remarks?

“It was not a political decision,” responded Peter Kaminsky, one of the broadcast’s executive producers. “We had zero problems with anything she said.”

Sure it wasn’t after the firestorm at NPR after their poor handling of Juan Williams. Not political? Of course they had no issue with what she said, what do you think they were honoring for? How about the fact that what Fay said was offensive, even for the likes of the Kennedy Center who honored Tina Fay for her very political comments made about Palin. BTW Tina, damn, what up with that hair? Will she soon be mocking MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow?

As stated correctly by Big Government, hey PBS do not edit Fay’s comments about Palin on our account. We want America to see how hateful the comedy of Fay is and how you Libs try and paint, or in this case air brush, a distorted picture.

Quote Of The Day - Tina Fey

“And, you know, politics aside, the success of Sarah Palin and women like her is good for all women - except, of course -those who will end up, you know, like, paying for their own rape ‘kit ‘n’ stuff.’ But for everybody else, it’s a win-win.

You know - actually, I take it back. The whole thing’s a disaster.” - Tina Fey, accepting the Kennedy Center’s Mark Twain Prize. However, television viewers didn’t hear Fey say that because PBS edited it out of the broadcast. The network says the show simply ran long and that they “snipped from everybody.” Right.

Mom Tina Herrmann, Children Sarah Maynard & Kody Maynard, and Friend Stephanie Sprang Missing in Ohio Since 11/10/2010

November 14, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

What happened to the 4 missing individuals in a rural Ohio town?

32 year old Tina Herrmann, her 41 year old friend Stephanie Sprang, and Herrmann’s 13 year-old daughter Sarah Maynard, and 10 year-old son Kody Maynard have been missing since Wednesday, November 10, 2010. The search continues for the four who have vansihed without a trace.

  • Sarah M. Maynard is 5 feet tall, weighing 90 pounds, with blonde hair and green eyes.
  • Kody A. Maynard was described as 4 feet, 10 inches tall, weighing 70 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.
  • Sprang is 5 feet, 3 inches tall, weighing 110 pounds, with blonde hair and green eyes.
  • Herrmann was described as 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighing 122 pounds, with sandy blonde hair and blue eyes.

 

Missing: Stephanie Sprang (top lft), Tina Herrmann (top rt), Kody Maynard (bottom lft) and Sarah Maynard (bottom rt)

Tina Herrmann failed to show up to work at a Dairy Queen in Mount Vernon, Ohio on Wednesday; however, the children were in school Wednesday, but not Thursday. Police went to the home  Herrmann on Wednesday and saw her pickup truck in the yard, some light was on; however, no one answered the door. On Thursday, the manager of the Dairy Queen entered the home on Thursday and discovered blood and some things out of place. The blood was referred to an an“unsual” amount of blood. Investigators are testing samples the blood discovered.

The sheriff described their disappearance as a missing persons case.

“Detectives are interviewing family members, friends and acquaintances,” Barber told CNN affiliate WBNS on Saturday. “Right now, there is no indication that they were abducted.”

Herrmann failed to report to work at a Dairy Queen in Mount Vernon, in central Ohio, on Wednesday. A deputy came twice to the house and saw Herrmann’s pickup truck. Lights were on in the house, but no one answered the door, Barber said.

“There were no signs of anything out of place,” he said.

A Dairy Queen manager entered the home on Thursday and discovered the blood.

“There is blood in the house. There is a sign of injury to a person or persons,” Barber said Friday.

 

 On Thursday, Herrmann’s pick up truck discovered Thursday night near Kenyon College in Gambier, OH which prompted a college lockdown. Police alerted the college that there might be a dangerous person in the area who might have left the vehicle of the 4 missing persons. The college lifted the lock down on Friday.

What would cause four people to simply disappear at what seems to be separate times? Tina Herrmann’s ex-boyfriend, Greg Borders, stated that the couple lived together but were in the process of breaking up … RUT-ROH! Borders said, We were fairly civil, as civil as you can be living in the same house when you’re broken up.” Um, “AS CIVIL AS YOU CAN BE”? That is hardly a good sign.

Herrmann’s boyfriend Greg Borders told the Columbus Dispatch that the couple lived together but were in process of breaking up. He last said he last heard from her Wednesday via text message.

“We were both going to go our separate ways,” he told the paper “We were fairly civil, as civil as you can be living in the same house when you’re broken up.”

What are the odds that the initial crime took place after the children had went to school on Wednesday and they came home and walked into the middle of the cover up of the crime? The fact that Herrmann’s pick up was located would indicate that they are not on the run. If this crime was committed by a stranger, why the need to move the vehicle?

Tina Fey celebrates comedy award by dumping on Palin, of course

November 11, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

Of course.


Depressing, and not just because it’s so lazy and predictable. There’s a history on SNL of prominent pols getting along reasonably well with the cast members who satirize them. Dana Carvey’s told stories about Bush 41 getting a kick out of his impression when they met, and I remember Norm MacDonald urging viewers to vote [...]
