The University of Missouri journalism school held a talk at the Harvard Club last night, featuring bird watcher Hank Paulson. The invite specified that the event was off the record, which didn’t sit well with Missouri alum Charlie Gasparino. Chaz doesn’t do off the record, which is why he see your OTR and raises you a “stugatz,” which is something his mother, may she rest in peace, used to say. And you know what? Just for daring to even think that Gaspo would attend your talk without even the possibility of getting a story out of it, what he’s going to do, is he’s going to do, is he’s going to wait for your car to pull up, and get in your face, and ask you questions anyway, with a camera rolling. If you want to blow him off, fine, but just know it’s going to come back to ten-fold (CG’s stugatz where the sun don’t shine).

    Quickly, while the commenting window is open. Is he searing off “my sources tell me” completely, or are they grandfathered in?

    BTW it’s only “stugatz” if directed at Stu.

    CG can suck it – first, “love” is the name of the damn car company. he should know better he lives in this town (ok, across the river from this town); secondly, he would have done better if had he asked why the fk hank’s rolling in toyota! most companies use town cars…

    Do you mean “oo gatz?” That’s what Mrs. G used to say. You can look it up.

    I’ll take you to the mat on this. Onesies optional.

    Either your site sucks ass or I failed the intelligence test that is the log in procedure. Either way, it’s disappointing.

  12. Posted by Bess Levin | March 2, 2010 at 5:10 PM

    slow to the uptake@9- Given that it looks like you logged in just fine, I’d say the only thing indicative of your lack of intelligence is that you’re just realizing now that our site has been sucking hardcore at working for the last 48 hours (/3 weeks).

    @AB – the site sucks donkey balls at the moment. I had to reset my password and reset my details. Took 2 days and numerous crashes. I’m on the verge of going on a 2 week bender and seeing if things improve when I sober up.

    This site now officially sucks more than Linda Lovelace on steroids. Such a waste. It used to be really good. But enough is enough. Off to Business Insider.

    I normally wouldn’t be for this, but I think Bessie should offer a free BJ to the IT guy for every day that this site works properly.

    @16 you moron. DB doesn’t suck DB’s WORTHLESS TECH PEOPLE SUCK. Also, interesting that you keep saying “off to Business Insider!” and yet…are still here. Loser.

    @taxchick- seconded. and maybe for the loyal readers too?

  26. Posted by Anonymous | March 2, 2010 at 8:15 PM

    @16 the 4 posts that Bess was actually able to get up today, and that we were able to read, were still 100 times better than the 50 worthless post on BI.

    Maybe the fools in IT should lay off the curry. God I hope I don’t run into the douche that’s responsible for this placental abortion.

    I wonder whether he (it) has “designed dealbreaker website” on his fucking resume. Knowing these dolt’s probably does.

  30. Posted by Guest | March 2, 2010 at 9:28 PM

    I see how you might think I’m obsessed with wrestling with Bess. Not true – although the piledriver would be fun. Just a little frustrated akin to lackanookie and yes feeling some separation anxiety due to this IT thing.

  35. Posted by Mitch Cumstein | March 2, 2010 at 11:39 PM


    I’m going to duct tape a router to your left ankle, and handcuff your right wrist to my respective left. I will then place you on a dolly, along with Breaking Media’s payroll device, and roll you to 28th and Lex. It is here that you shall stay for 2 days/2 weeks (time completely dependent on BM’s pay cycle), until the IT department discovers their direct deposit did not go through. Looking to score some money from family, they’ll finally make their way to our (then) current location, only to find you posting from an internet cafe, using as the new domain. They’ll apologize profusely, yet you won’t accept. You’ll complain about the skin irritation caused my duct tape and tell them to “Bleed from the ass, after getting fucked by 17 hawks.” I will be thrown off by this language. However, I will follow through with something more rational, such as “Car people, I will duct tape hamburgers to the sides of your face unless you get your shit together.” They will get their shit together, and, once again, will function correctly. This is the only way.

    Is it me or is this site suddenly faster? Say it isn’t so? Did they finally find the one IT guy out of a hundred tools that actually knows what he’s doing? Only time and today will tell.

    Hmmm posting is still a little slow. Wonder how it holds up when more people are reading and posting… time will tell.

    so is CG implying that FOX News currently is NOT the TMZ of the business news channels in expressing his desire to direct the programs in this manner because it seems like mission accomplished even before he arrived.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the internet will be a lot more helpful than ever before.
