Did WGCH’s Michael Metter get Teri Buhl fired?

Bill Clark writes that Ms. Buhl may have been fired from Greenwich Time for reporting on the stock scam WGCH owner Michael Metter is running. I don’t know – it seems to me that GT’s Dave McCucumber is a frightened rabbit, scared of his own shadow, and would a dump a reporter at the first sign that someone was “Angy” at McCucumber, but certainly Teri gave Metter something to be angry about. He’s running a penny stock fraud for something called SpongeTech and people running scams just hate when you point that out.

    Dude Man -
    So is the date set yet?
    Question – What do you get if you cross a lawyer with a “writer”, with a “professional real estate agent”, with a business reporter?
    Answer – Absolutely nothing. Uh-huh. James Brown Dude!!

    • You know, Walt, I’ve never met Teri, just as I’ve never met you, so maybe, if marriage is in my future, it’s you and me, babe! Whattya say? A quiet meeting at Starbucks, long, lingering glances over foamy Cappucino/frappacrappa? It could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship, and now that Greenwich is THE hotspot for same-sex marriages ….

    William Randolph Hearst would have Teri up to his little place at San Simeon. She’s the type of reporter that sold print. I think we have a mess a brewing at Greenwich times.

    i think its a good bet that the WGCH reporting is what pushed teri out. those pro spongeteck penny stock pumpers seemed like a crazy lot. plus the paper probably got cold feet reporting the dirt on another intown old world media outlet.

  4. As I stated in a previous comment, I used to work for one of the GT’s prior parent companies, so I’ve seen how this sausage gets made up close. This theory doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. Reporters don’t pick their assignments and they certainly don’t decide what goes in the paper. If the editor decided it wasn’t a good idea to give the story any more coverage he just would have assigned Teri to other stories.

    My guess is that she wasn’t so much fired as had her job eliminated. As the newspaper industry circles the drain there’s a lot of that going around.

    Who says the gov’t doesn’t think long term? They saw the deficits coming years ago and knew people would have incentive to leave these fair shores, so they came up with an Exit Tax.
