Politicos and pesky anonymous bloggers

A little background on Kim Stout. It seems the purpose of her letter is to fish out a blogger in Franklin that is well respected for keeping an eye on the Franklin government. Apparently Kim Stout would like to do a “South Knox Bubba” on the anonymous blogger that runs the “Drinkin’ the Franklin Kool Aid “. Pesky anonymous bloggers are always asking questions. Reminds me of those pesky anonymous revolutionaries that founded this nation.

A local politico, fearless leader of the GOP of Knox County, Brian Hornback writes that anonymous bloggers are cowards and have NO credibility. Hornback is a former school board member who spends a lot of time attacking the school board. Ironically Brian Hornback will not allow comments on his blog. Go figure. Not very credible is it?

Hornback writes, “My point is this, bloggers that have enough intestinal fortitude to put it out there, knowing that their identity is on the line have far more credibility than those that want to remain anonymous. When I look at a blog and the person is a coward that refuses to reveal who they are. I ignore them and tell others to ignore them, they have NO credibility. If you are going to spend your time to affect public opinion and public policy then be man or woman enough to identify yourself.”

Of course allowing comments on said blog is optional. Hornback has nice little friends like Tyler Harber that will come play with you if they figure out who you are and where you work. Itís a lot of fun; ask Jamie (Hagood) Woodson or school board superintendent Dr. Charles Lindsey. Who was it that created caswalker.com? Many people think it was Tyler Harber, able lieutenant to GOP leader Brian Hornback. Pot, kettle, you get the idea.

Keep it up pesky anonymous bloggers. We are the new press. Somebody had to step up because the politicians took over the old press. Remember the lesson learned by South Knox Bubba, the politicos will lean on you if they can.

    Looks like Hornback’s blog does allow comments. I didn’t try to post one though.

    Just an illusion. Try to post a comment. You have to be a team member. How many team members are there? None. So comments cannot be posted.

    According to allwhois.com, caswalker.com was registered by Charles Edmondson.
