CARL MONDAY, VETERAN CHANNEL 19 ACTION NEWS INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER, IS IN BED WITH CITY HALL. HE WILL NOT INVESTIGATE IRREGULARITIES IN THE $50 MILLION JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION PROJECT!
HALL OF SHAME SERIES #5
A WEEK AGO -- ON MONDAY 12-10-12, THE LAST DAY OF THE 3-WEEK LONG HUNGER STRIKE, I PICKED UP THE COURAGE TO TAKE A TRIP DOWNTOWN.
I TOOK THE BUS – AND ONCE I WAS DOWNTOWN – I WALKED GINGERLY TO CONSERVE MY ENERGY.
I DEMONSTRATED FOR A SHORT WHILE OUTSIDE THE CHANNEL 19 ACTION NEWS STATION. AFTER I GOT A FEW PICTURES TAKEN, I WENT INSIDE AND REQUESTED ENTRY. I TOLD THE RECEPTIONIST THAT I HAD A LETTER FOR CARL MONDAY – THEIR INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER.
THE RECEPTIONIST SAID TO LEAVE IT IN THE TRAY – WHICH I DID – AND THAT IT WOULD BE DELIVERED TO MR. MONDAY.
WHEN I RETURNED HOME, LATER IN THE EVENING – I ALSO FORWARDED THE LETTER VIA E-MAIL TO MR. MONDAY.
MR. MONDAY, LIKE OTHER LOCAL TV STATION NETWORK REPORTERS HAS BEEN COPIED ON ALL THE OVER 400 PAGES OF CORRESPONDENCE SENT TO CITY HALL RE. THE SAVE JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL PROJECT -- THE IRREGULARITIES COMMITED BY CITY HALL -- COLLUSIVE INACTION, VOTE RIGGING, AND DENIAL OF DUE PROCESS -- AND THE DAILY REPORTS ABOUT THE 3-WEEK LONG HUNGER STRIKE.
THERE HAVE BEEN MANY DEMONSTRATIONS OUSTIDE CHANNEL 19 TV STATION.
SO FAR THERE HAS BEEN ZERO RESPONSE FROM ALL THE FOUR TV STATIONS TO THE INJUSTICE METED TO OVER 2,400 PETITIONERS IN THE SAVE JOHN MARSHALL CAMPAIGN.
ZERO COVERAGE OF HUNGER STRIKE BY CLEVLAND’S TV STATIONS:
ON 12-11-12, AFTER ANNOUNCING THE END OF THE THREE-WEEK LONG HUNGER STRIKE, ETV TELEVISION NETWORK QUOTED MR. PURI STATING THAT BOTH MAYOR JACKSON AND THE CLEVELAND MEDIA WERE CORRUPT IN FACILITATING THE DESTRUCTION OF HISTORIC 80-YEAR OLD JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL!
AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE HUNGER STRIKE, I WROTE ON MY REALNEO BLOG:
“70-YEAR OLD SIKH-AMERICAN’S FIGHT TO SAVE HISTORIC 80-YEAR OLD JOHN MARSHALL HIGH SCHOOL IN CLEVELAND, OHIO FROM DESTRUCTION FACILITATED BY A 100% CORRUPT POLITICAL SYSTEM IN CLEVELAND OHIO LED BY PHILISTINES AND DISHONEST POLITICIANS -- MAYOR JACKSON & COUNCILMAN SWEENEY -- WHERE THE MEDIA IS IN BED WITH CITY HALL -- WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL.”
“I WAS UNABLE TO OVERCOME THE 100% CORRUPT POLITICAL SYSTEM IN CLEVELAND, OHIO – LED BY PHILISTINES AND DISHONEST POLITICIANS – MAYOR JACKSON AND COUNCILMAN SWEENEY AND WHICH IS AIDED AND ABETTED BY THE MEDIA – THE PLAIN DEALER AND CHANNELS 3(NBC), 5(ABC), 8(FOX), AND 19(CBS) – WHO ARE IN BED WITH CITY HALL AND WHERE THE SEWER FLOWS FROM CITY HALL ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE BELLAIRE PURITAS DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION – AND ENGULFS EVERY ONE OF MAYOR JACKSON’S AND COUNCILMAN SWEENEY’S CRONIES, GOONS, AIDES, AND ABETTERS -- WHO WALLOW IN THE MUCK!”
THE HUNGER STRIKE WAS A CRY FOR JUSTICE – WHICH TO THIS DAY HAS NOT BEEN SERVED. THE PLAIN DEALER AND THE BROADCAST MEDIA IN CLEVELAND – CHANNELS: 3(NBC), 5(ABC), 8(FOX), AND 19(CBS) COMPLETELY IGNORED INVESTIGATION OF CITY HALL’S COLLUSIVE INACTION, VOTE RIGGING AND DENIAL OF DUE PROCESS TO OVER 2,400 PETITIONERS WHO WANTED TO RENOVATE HISTORIC JOHN MARSHALL HIGH!
HERE IS THE LETTER WRITTEN TO MR. MONDAY – WHICH WAS HAND-DELIVERED ON 12-10-12 AND LATER IN THE EVENING, ALSO FORWARDED TO MR. MONDAY VIA E-MAIL:
December 10, 2012
To: Carl Monday, Investigative Reporter, Channel 19 Action News
Subject: Hunger Strike to SAVE JOHN MARSHALL
Dear Mr. Monday:
Today is the 21st day of the hunger strike.
The underlying issues that prompted the hunger strike: gross irregularities committed by City Hall – collusive inaction, vote rigging, and denial of due process – remain un-addressed.
The Plain Dealer is not responding to our call for “Investigate City Hall” despite two requests submitted via e-mail to Mr. Egger – President and Publisher.
Today, I was demonstrating outside Channel 19 for a short while – considering I have limited energy – I have lost 20 pounds so far – and dropped in to leave this message.
A hunger strike is a cry for Justice when due process has been denied to citizens who have neither power nor wealth.
You are on our mailing list and have been copied on all correspondence.
I have demonstrated many times before in front of your station.
I have attached a flyer re. the hunger strike. I will appreciate hearing from you.
