Inquirer Names New Chairman

KopelmanThe largest newspaper in Pennsylvania’s largest city has a new leader.

Josh Kopelman is the new Chairman of the Philadelphia Media Network. The PMN oversees Philly.com, the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News.

Kopelman is replacing H.F. “Gerry” Lenfest, who will stay on as a member of the board and will continue to lead the division’s Institute for Journalism in New Media.

“Great cities need a great independent source of journalism,” Kopelman stated. “They need investigative reporting. I think the Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News, and Philly.com play a critical role in our city.”

“[Kopelman’s] young, he’s smart, and he’s dedicated to PMN and its future,” Lenfest responded. “Journalism is important, but how it’s going to survive in the digital age takes people like Josh Kopelman to help us figure it out.”

A venture capitalist, Kopelman’s most prominent business was Half.com, which he was able to sell to ebay in 2000. He is 45 years old and a graduate of Wharton Business School.

    HaHaHu aka
    Brett Cott. Nice reply, if anyone knows about sucking dicks it’s probably you since I hear you were the nightly entertainment on your block. I hear your family disowned you because you were the first thief to get caught and the humiliation of it all was too much for them. Nice boy you turned out to be. I’m not gonna make fun of your mom sucking Di..is or that she caught you trying on her clothes before you went to jail to see what colors looked best. By the way someone who knew you there said lime green to match the troll wig you wore although the wig kept falling off your bald head.
    So the next question is did you pay any taxes on the money you stole. Maybe we could convince the Inquirer to do an investigative piece. Who knows maybe someone will investigate. Wouldn’t it be funny if Fina was appointed as a special Federal Prosecutor and put you in jail again. So Brett keep posting those links that’s a real intelligent response and your “suck a bag of Dikks” comment I know you put a lot of time for that genius quote.

    Hey, if you’re bored go pick on some mentally challenged kids in New York.
    Better not because they would kick your prison loving bitch ass. Have a good weekend.

    Josh — You may want to take a look at what Craig McCoy has been up to. Check out the e-mails that Judge Feudale sent to McCoy. Look who was CC’d — Frank Fina. And then look at the reporting being done by McCoy on the Kathleen Kane – Frank Fina spat. Not kosher. Not kosher at all.

    HaHaHa aka Brett Cott

    This story is about you. You made the papers.

    HARRISBURG –Bonusgate defendent Brett Cott received a sentence of 21 to 60 months on three charges this morning.
    He also received three fines totaling $11,000 and was told to make restitution to the state of $50,000. The sentence was imposed by Dauphin County Judge Richard Lewis, who rejected Mr. Cott’s defense attorny’s plea for probation. Mr. Cott was found guilty on three charges: conflict of interest, theft of services, and conspiracy.

    I can get the rest of the story plus your picture that was in the paper since it’s all public knowledge. Now I have to be honest this was a Pennsylvania paper.

    Speaking of Seth Williams, gulag —

    http://www.politicspa.com/councilwomen-grill-williams-over-fina/75222/

    The guy who is covering up for the person (jilted lover?) who defaced City property in front of his house.

    The guy who’s Twitter feed once included photos from Big Booty Latinas.

    The guy who spent campaign funds on membership dues at The Union League and The Sporting Club at The Bellvue.

    The guy who turned his back on the victim of a violent crime because one of the perpetrators gave him lots of $$$.

    The guy who lives with his Mommy.

    The guy who demoted a top Deputy and hard-working prosecutor because she suggested that the Office not have racist, sexist prosecutors on staff.

    The guy that has a Harrisburg bartender and Corbett Republicans running his PAC.

    The guy that got his ass kicked in a boxing match by a defense attorney.

    The guy who gets field-passes for NFL games and then refuses to prosecute NFL players who sucker-punch off-duty officers.

    The guy whose family lives in the suburbs with the wife that he cheated on repeatedly.

    The guy who goes to bat for disgusting lawyers with multiple ethics violations so they can become Judges.

    And that is all BEFORE WE EVEN TALK ABOUT Frank Fina and Marc Costanzo.

    This new Chairman may want to have his Ombudsman take a look at what Craig McCoy has been up to with Frank Fina. Craig has been a co-conspirator of sorts to people illegally leaking grand jury material. And then he rips Kane every day for allegedly leaking grand jury material. Hmmmm … … … …

    It is still a bankrupt enterprise.

    How does he feel about Angela and Frank Fina? Or Seth Williams?
