Every once in a while I get a post to one of my sites that is truly inspiring. Not necessarily because the author agrees with me (although I was relieved to read that this was the case here), but because the post is articulate, intelligent and/or thought provoking.
Messages like these are antithisis of much of the juvenile tripe that represents the loudest voice of the minority 10% 'ers that populate the IWC.
Today I received the following post to my earlier blog in which I responded to Wade Keller. I thought it was worthy of posting here if for no reason than to prove that there are those in the 90% club that do indeed raise the bar. Thanks Peter!
From Peter Campbell
Eric, Luv ya for bringing it strong to these self-appointed 'experts'.
Wade Keller: Don't kid yourself. You and your colleagues/counterparts respected journalists? (Seriously!)
Admittedly I don't know you personally but don't tell me that running your own website and years on the dirtsheets makes this your qualification. (Being respected by the IWC is like thinking yourself handsome because your mother says you are).
Your site is hardly Wikileaks is it Wade?
IMO true journalism should be about presenting the facts, quoting your sources and being unbiased allowing your readership to make up their own minds (notice the bit where I use IMO? Something that few people do as often they state their own opinion as The Only opinion and confuse it with fact, think about it). Opinion from a viewer is fair enough if you watch the show but it is just that (an opinion) not necessarily fact or the general consensus of opinions.
Looking at Eric's blog where he could have gotten away without the Red Line as reading your words you pretty much hang yourself with them:
Your site knew exactly what they were doing when posting about the future of the X-division (you write this off in retrospect as being an unimportant story however the X-division is part of TNA's identity and is going to be an Attention Grabber for TNA fans who found their way to your site). Obviously you were doing this to get hits.
As said all of the power players who could potentially consider doing so say that this was never the case therefore No Consideration was ever given to phasing it out making it an out and out lie (go on then who was the source? Dixie, Eric, Russo).
The only mystery of your unidentified sources is if they actually exist why would they give you the time of day? (I take it not for the money).
I see no Personal Grudge on Eric's part as Keller calls it (just calling B.S for what it is). Reading Wade's words it seems he resorts to petty attacks towards Eric for calling out the B.S.
"P.R Stunt... Just an embarrassment" (Double standards Wade?) "Spouting off" "Ranting against commentators without ramifications." (Get real) Too funny! You've been spouting off and ranting for years and the ramifaication is that it makes you look pathetic Keller. Eric is calling you, your colleagues/counterparts for what they are. *It makes your responses look foolish when you try to justify the unjustifiable.
If you want to be so desperate to take typical 'TNA Sucks' etc... IWC rants from his Facebook page and bring this up to back one of your points (many of these are comments posted on subjects that have nothing to do with wrestling showing you the mentality of these idiots) Then you put yourself in the running for Mayor of the Villiage of Idiots.
Try looking at the general consensus of opinion on his Facebook page on this blog subject and you will see that the sensible fans are backing Eric and recognising you and your like for what you are. (B.S Merchants certainly not journalists)
