Question For Tech Journalists Like Kirk McElhearn of MacWorld, At What Point Are You Responsible For Supporting The Frauds/Scams of Podcast Hosts Like Gene Steinberg by Appearing as a Guest on Their Apple Tech Podcasts? Every 3/4 Months Steinberg Asks His Audience For Free Money (Donations for Pseudo Emergencies) as He Claims He is About to be Evicted.

Question For Tech Journalists Like Kirk McElhearn of MacWorld, At What Point Are You Responsible For Supporting The Frauds/Scams of Podcast Hosts Like Gene Steinberg by Appearing as a Guest on Their Apple Tech Podcasts? Every 3/4 Months Steinberg Asks His Audience For Free Money (Donations for Pseudo Emergencies) as He Claims He is About to be Evicted.

There is a clear record of ticking clock scenarios, over 100 emails per year since the year 2006 from Gene Steinberg, sent to his forum and newsletter and podcast subscribers, all with the same copy and paste tactics, he is about to be evicted or he needs money for medical care or his wife needs money for medical care. Each time Steinberg claims his situation is temporary, at the final hour he is saved, only to repeat the process in two to four weeks.

Here is a current (2018) example of a classic Gene Steinberg copy and paste scam/fraud job perpetuated on his audience, this Gene Steinberg grifter posts the same “about to be evicted” story every month:

Gene Steinberg, “Hi,

The new property manager just notified me that we have to prepare to leave this apartment. They will not stop the constable even if I hand them the rent. A constable can show up any time now or as late as early next week. There’s no advance warning.

Once the constable shows up, we have 15 minutes to leave.

We have nowhere to go and no solutions.

Once again, the rent payment won’t be accepted. We have to leave.

What this means is that if you can provide help for us to survive and find another place to live, you can use PayPal again, since we won’t have to deal with a cashier’s check payment.

Barbara is crushed and I’m packing what I can.

Go to: https://www.paypal.com/Send-Money, login and use the Send to friends and family option. Enter my email address, gene@technightowl.com, and click or tap Next to continue the transaction.

If you want to send a donation by a different method, let me know and I’ll work out something.

If you’re not able to send a donation, feel free to forward this message to someone who might assist.

If you have any questions about my situation, please don’t hesitate to write.

Peace,”
Gene

At what point do the guests on Gene Steinberg’s podcast have a responsibility to not appear on his show, what kind of character does it display to appear on a show whose host scams his audience. Many of these tech journalists hide behind the mantra that they are freelance and it is difficult to survive in this economy but that is no excuse to support scams and run dubious fake reviews of products that you are only promoting because the said company paid you money.

If you can’t survive as a freelance journalist then get a real job or a side job but just because you are freelance, don’t assume you won’t lose a reading/listening/viewing audience if you throw your journalistic morals out the door.

If you want to be a journalist, practice journalistic integrity.

Here is a running list of technology journalists that frequently appear on Gene Steinberg’s tech podcast, you should contact them, their advertisers, and Steinberg’s advertisers and ask if they feel it is good for business to support and profit off the cons of Gene Steinberg:

Josh Centers, managine editor of Tidbits

Bob “Dr. Mac” Levitus, Apple technology columnist for The Houston Chronicle

Jeff Gamet, managing editor of the Mac Observer

Peter Cohen, tech writer

Jonny Evans, writer for ComputerWorld

Adam Engst, publisher of Tidbits

Joe Kissell, author of Take Control Books

Rob Pegoraro, tech writer for USA Today

John Martellaro, senior editor at the Mac Observer

So as we start listing the tech journalists that appear on Gene Steinberg’s Apple Tech Podcast, The Tech Night Owl, we start with Kirk McElhearn, what are your thoughts on Gene Steinberg’s laundry email/website/twitter chain of scams?

Come on tech journalists, Steinberg is such a professional con man, there is an entire Twitter Page dedicated to documenting his fraud emails entitled “SchemeGeneRC”.

But because tech journalists like Kirk Mcelhearn are freelance, they can support a scam artist as long as they can pimp their journalism on a scam artist’s podcast.

Update: As the fraud continues journalists like Kirk McElhearn refuse to comment on Gene Steinberg’s constant emergencies. It is worse than MikeFrancesa.com realized as Gene Steinberg’s begging emails are being sent out multiple times per month as documented here and here.

Will the tech journalists continue to support the grifter Gene Steinberg and the continual bilking of his audience by continuing to appear on his tech podcasts?

Update II: We are alleging fraud because the evidence is clear that Steinberg is posting these “emergencies” over 100 times per year. But these are only allegations, nothing is proven and the reader should be aware of that however one should visit the links in this post and consider the evidence.

We believe there are only two possibilities, Gene Steinberg is outright lying about his situation and is therefore asking for donations by using false pretenses or he is lying about the context of his donation pleas and he is using his audience to fund his lifestyle as he has been sending out these emergency plea donations since 2006.

Both possibilities are scumbag behavior as we see it and possibly fraudulent as defined by the law but it will be up to the local authorities to determine if they can prosecute. We hope that Gene Steinberg is declaring his donations to the proper authorities and paying the requisite taxes.

At this point Steinberg has nobody to blame but himself for his situation and dwindling donations as anyone with half a brain can see that nobody has an emergency that lasts 12 years.

So if he is indeed truly homeless then he can post all evidence of this (documents, photos, witness statements) on his website. He can post an action plan that will prevent him from needing donations ever again and a pledge to not accept donations past 2018 if it ever happens again. He should also apologize for asking his audience to donate for over 12 years to support his lifestyle.

Perhaps a few remaining people will then once again donate to his cause but if not, if his history is too much for any intelligent person to ever give money again, then Steinberg must ditch his podcast career and start working a real job because there are many legit charities that one can donate their money to. Charities that prove how much of their money actually goes to helping people.

Wall Street Journal Article is Perfect Encapsulation of Feckless Media & Incompetent FBI in Investigation & Coverage of Florida Shooter, One WSJ Commenter Sums Up What True Common Sense is in one Comment Post

February 16th, 2018 · Comments Off

Wall Street Journal Article is Perfect Encapsulation of Feckless Media & Incompetent FBI in Investigation & Coverage of Florida Shooter, One WSJ Commenter Sums Up What True Common Sense is in one Comment Post.

The FBI might not have been able to prevent this Florida massacre but they at least could have tried, true that they probably have to deal with thousands of threats but in this instance ONE GOOGLE SEARCH would have revealed the true identity of the shooter whose name and pictures should not be promoted by MSNBC/FOX NEWS/CNN/DRUDGE and any other website that takes corporate advertisers.

But the media will never learn or care, all about clicks and viewers and dollars and cents but could at least one of those so called reporters ask the FBI special agent in charge why you did not have one FBI person conduct a simple google search on the Youtube username.

It is not about conspiracy, conspiracy theories are for fools, it is about how does the FBI not fire this special agent who appeared at the news conference and delivered a couple of BS lines about “database checks”, who wrote the script for this bumbling fool.

Instead of playing political games why doesn’t Congress do some real oversight on the agency whose budget they control and find out why the FBI does not know how to use Google, anyway a WSJ commenter sums it up perfectly:

No honest “expert” would provide such poor information. This is a sad example of embracing incompetence.

1. The YouTube comment is a very typical school shooting lead. Many, if not the majority of leads involving high risk youth come from social media and the internet exactly in this manner. These commenters are identified nearly every day by law enforcement.

2. Claiming a grand jury subpoena is needed is a lie. Agents have the power of subpoena. It is the single most basic step of any online investigation. A routine form is signed by an attorney and sent to the company. 1,000 of subpoenas are issued every day in the U.S. The most basic and minimal effort would have identified the YouTube comment poster.

3. Everyone else on earth was able to find this kid online in 30 seconds. The FBI has 1,000’s of people trained in open source investigations, social media investigations, doxing, etc. Claiming their hands were tied because the poster wasn’t in their databases is a lie. A database wasn’t even needed to identify the commenter for the rest of the world. Blaming “the database” is what an old, incompetent, lazy, investigator would do.

4. N***** C*** ISN’T even a common name. He also commented on a local business… which is a CLUE the poster is likely from that general area. Again, everyone else found this kid online no problem.

5. The tip went to the wrong incompetent person. So much so, that he apparrently didn’t even muster the energy to request assistance or share the tip with someone else capable of the most basic online investigation.

6. The bottom line is… MORE could’ve very easily been done… BUT… even so, it may not have prevented this incident. Sadly, we’ll never know for sure.

And the person who wrote this WSJ article should be fired as well.

Apple Pseudo-Male John Gruber Claims There is No Apple Ecosystem Lock In On the Apple TV, Someone Inform This Paid Media Arm of Apple That the Apple TV Still Has No Spotify or TuneIn App

February 5th, 2018 · Comments Off

Apple Pseudo-Male John Gruber Claims There is No Apple Ecosystem Lock In On the Apple TV, Someone Inform This Paid Media Arm of Apple That the Apple TV Still Has No Spotify or TuneIn App.

Here is the chief Apple propagandist John Gruberrrrr:

A lot of people are looking at HomePod’s exclusive first-class support for Apple Music and see selfish intent. Apple isn’t working with Spotify or other services because they want everyone to use Apple’s media ecosystem for everything, is the thinking. Maybe! But maybe HomePod only works with Apple Music for now. I don’t know, and Apple isn’t going to tell anyone.

But look at Apple TV. There’s still no “skinny bundle” from Apple itself but now you use Apple TV to watch YouTube’s TV package, Playstation’s, and I’m sure others. There’s certainly no lock-in to the Apple media ecosystem on Apple TV. I think a lot of this is just a big complicated mess behind the scenes.

Hey Gruber, the only mess is located in your Apple addled brain, they are a company not your significant other, they have had years to offer Spotify/TuneIn and other music streaming apps that are rivals to Apple Music on their Apple TV, why do you think they have not?

This is why both the Apple TV and the Apple Homepod are $ inflated pieces of garbage.

Directv’s New GUI a Disaster, Fade/Shade Covering Bottom of Screen When Using DVR Progress Bar Features & Small/Unreadable Fonts Throughout General User Interface Especially Harming the Guide and Playlist, Reports of Thousands of Subscribers Cancelling Service.

December 26th, 2017 · Comments Off

Directv’s New GUI a Disaster, Fade/Shade Covering Bottom of Screen When Using DVR Progress Bar Features & Small/Unreadable Fonts Throughout General User Interface Especially Harming the Guide and Playlist, Reports of Thousands of Subscribers Cancelling Service.

Will AT&T/Directv prevent the loss of more subscribers by changing the GUI to a more functional and pleasant experience for those who actually watch TV?

If they don’t the stock price will start to sink.

Directv's New GUI a Disaster, Fade/Shade Covering Bottom of Screen When Using DVR Progress Bar Features & Small/Unreadable Fonts Throughout General User Interface Especially Harming the Guide and Playlist, Reports of Thousands of Subscribers Cancelling Service.

The Directv/ATT&T team of designers describe the above progress bar this way:

On Live TV, the Rewind/Fast Forward bar looks visually different than the old trick-play bar. The functionality remains unchanged.

It sure does look different, this progress bar or Rewind/Fast Forward Bar is surrounded by a dark/black Fade/Shade that covers 1/3 of the lower screen.

Whenever one hits play/pause/fast forward, sports scores and time remaining is blocked, one can’t see news headlines or stock tickers.

Does Directv realize their product is designed for people to see the entire screen?

Furthermore the Directv NOW DVR Beta App has a 100 percent clear progress bar, so why can’t Directv make a simple fix and get rid of the Fade/Shade on the sat version of the Directv progress bar?

If this remains unfixed, MikeFrancesa.com is leaving Directv.

WABC Radio Host John Batchelor Ruins His Reputation By Putting Snake Oil Scam Diet Doctor Arthur Turovets On as Regular Guest Without Disclosing Advertising Relationship as Turovets Pays WABC/Batchelor For Ads on Batchelor’s Show for his Scientifically Unproven NJ Diet and its Misleading Diet Claims.

October 19th, 2017 · Comments Off

WABC Radio Host John Batchelor Ruins His Reputation By Putting Snake Oil Scam Diet Doctor Arthur Turovets On as Regular Guest Without Disclosing Advertising Relationship as Turovets Pays WABC/Batchelor For Ads on Batchelor’s Show for his Scientifically Unproven NJ Diet (Formerly Known as Nuvo Fat Loss) and its Misleading Diet Claims.

Sad that Batchelor joins the ranks of Hannity, Michael Savage, and other prominent conservative talk radio hosts in their wanton disregard for their audience through promoting companies and individuals that seek to defraud the general public with their snake oil medicine and fraudulent financial schemes.

What is it with these conservative radio hosts, anyone remember Sean Hannity and his good buddy the quack Dr. Eric Braverman?

Memo to Batchelor: Ethical rule #1 - Always reveal your financial relationship with your on air guests.

Instead Batchelor tried to hide a 3am cable tv infomercial in the guise of a legit news segment covering a doctor with an alleged ground breaking diet.

The so called doctor Arthur Turovets was making repeated scientifically unproven claims and declaring them as fact. Science has not proven that blood/DNA tests can magically provide a doctor with a tailor made diet. Turovets claimed his diet would turn your body into a fat consuming machine and it would totally eliminate any junk food cravings or any cravings at all.

The claims went on and on while John Batchelor marveled and gushed and pointed to the testimonials on Turovets website.

Historically Batchelor has run a down the middle talk radio show with 85 percent of his guests as pure journalists, only 10 to 15 percent of his guests have been dubious fringe personalities with checkered pasts, the current one being Stephen Cohen who praises everything Russian President Vladimir Putin does while critiquing everything America does, no leader is 100 percent. But that is another story, with this snake oil in guest subterfuge, John Batchelor may have jumped the shark and waded into a Trump like swamp.

Update: MikeFrancesa.com has found no evidence that Arthur Turovets is a Doctor. The degree that Turovets claims is of a Chiropractor which makes him a licensed practitioner, not a doctor, more false advertising.

  WABC Radio Host John Batchelor Ruins His Reputation By Putting Snake Oil Scam Diet Doctor Arthur Turovets On as Regular Guest Without Disclosing Advertising Relationship as Turovets Pays WABC/Batchelor For Ads on Batchelor's Show for his Scientifically Unproven NJ Diet and its Misleading Diet Claims.
