Andrew Breitbart defamed Shirley Sherrod; Brietbart could be in trouble

Taking a Comic Con break to look at what else is happening; Google Trends reveals the ugly story of what happened to previously unknown Shirley Sherrod.

Conservative hit-blogger Andrew Breitbart's known for his extreme approaches in attacking liberals, but what he did to Shirley Sherrod, a goverment worker who gave a speech to the NAACP this year and regarding a matter that happened 24 years ago, was that he apparently made a new video to claim she was racist, and went way too far.

While he says he intended to harm the NAACP, he picked Shirley Sherrod to do it. She did not ask for this. Breitbart altered a video to twist her words.

Andrew Breitbart may be a target for the U.S. Department of Justice' Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section (“CCIPS”) which is in the Criminal Division. The website, which was forwarded to this blogger by the DOJ on another issue, covers various types of crimes that involve a computer.

If Breitbart altered the video of Shirley Sherrod to make it look like she was making a statement he then called racist, he's certainly guilty of defamation of character against Shirley Sherrod.

Breitbart may also be guilty of Internet harassment. He certainly should be made a high-profile example to discourage others from these uses of the computer and The Internet to harass a person. Enough is enough.

COMIC CON 2010: San Diego's Kings Inn Hotel sponsors Zennie62 at Comic Con

YouTube, Metacafe, DailyMotion, Blip.tv, StupidVideos and Viddler

Kings Inn Hotel 
Zennie62 will be at Comic Con 2010. Kings Inn Hotel San Diego, a great hotel with a cool pool and two full service restaurants, and which is known as the "best waffle spot" in San Diego, is sponsoring Zennie62.com at Comic Con and thanks to San Francisco's SpritzSF marketing!

The Kings Inn Hotel is at 1333 Hotel Circle South in San Diego, just 12 minutes from the airport, and an equal number of minutes from the San Diego Convention Center, where Comic Con is held.

What's neat about The Kings Inn Hotel, aside from its close-to-the-airport location, is the free Wi-Fi (perfect for video-bloggers like me), and their massive interest in all things Comic Con. All way down to their own mascot: "Sir Wafflelot", the waffle king.

For a guy like me, who loves waffles, Sir Wafflelot's going to meet his match. Expect Sir Wafflelot to be a big presence at Comic Con, not just at the San Diego Convention Center, but in Zennie62 Comic Con videos, too!

If you're at Comic Con, staying at The Kings Inn Hotel, and spot me, Zennie62, while you're at the Inn, please say "hello" and be in one of my videos. Tell me what you think of Comic Con 2010! Bonus points if you're in costume for Comic Con!

Comic Con 2010: Hatchet 2 revives slasher horror film genre

Comic Con 2010 gets bloody.

If you remember "Jason" from the Friday the 13th series, then you know the name Kane Hodder, the man who has the distinction of not just playing him once, but four times, is also known for his role as the gruesome Victor Crowley, in Dark Sky Films' production of Adam Green's Hatchet 2 .

The great news is that Hodder, Green, Danielle Harris, the slasher movie queen of the 21st Century after starring in Rob Zombies' Halloween and H2, and the entire cast of Hatchet 2 will be at Comic Con 2010 in San Diego.

On Friday, Kane Hodder Tony Todd , R. A. Mihailoff (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Danielle Harris (Hatchet, Hatchet 2, Halloween), Tom Holland (Child's Play), and Adam Green (Hatchet, Hatchet 2,) will be on a panel called "Old School American Horror," at 6:30 PM PDT in Room 32 AB at the San Diego Convention Center.

Hatchet II 
The cast of Hatchet 2 will also have an autograph session before the panel, which starts at 2:30 in room AA20.

Video-blogging with the Cast of Hatchet 2

The other cool news is this video blogger will be shadowing the cast of Hatchet 2 on Friday evening, with a camcorder. I think I'll use the less intrusive and fun Flip Camera. But I digress.

Hatchet: The Slasher Movie

Hatchet is the 2006 movie based on the story of Victor Crowley, a person who was subjected to abuse from kids in his neighborhood due to his born deformities. On Halloween night, a group of kids try to scare Victor by throwing fire into his house. In trying to save him, Victor's father accidentally kills him with a hatchet, which he used to try to get into the house, not realizing that Victor was on the other side of the door.

Video from the first Hatchet:

After the incident and 10 years later, Victor's father dies of grief. During that period of time, a series of awful murders takes place - all done as it happens, by Victor.

When Victor's discovered by tourists and a woman named Marybeth (Danielle Harris), they try to kill Crowley in various ways; he survives each attempt. Finally, Victor gets his revenge, killing each one of them, until it's down to just he and Marybeth. The first Hatchet ends as Victor has Marybeth underwater.

That's where Hatchet II picks up.

Degrassi Season 10 Premiere: Review by Nikky Raney

A review if the season 10 premiere of Degrassi:

Mike Bloomberg's New Deputy by Suzannah B. Troy

I went up to the new deputy in town, deputy mayor Stephen Goldsmith before the breakfast hosted  by Crain's began and interviewed him.  I ask him if perhaps Bloomberg hired him, a Republican, late in the game because Bloomberg wants to run for President.  You can hear it and watch on my YouTube channel.

Eric Engquist, the reporter hosting this event  for Crain's, is a smart man, good reporter but he sounded like little lord Fauntleory when he said firehouses too close to each other are redundant and Goldsmith agreed.   Goldsmith wants to close them.

How can you push development and close firehouses?  Besides fires where people have died every so recently how about the constant infrastructure breaks including man holes covers exploding and gas leaks and the FDNY answer those calls as well which are so many since Bloomberg pushed a reckless tsunami of development.

Based on Goldsmith's non-answers he is anti-gay marriage and he was so wishy washy and like his hand shake limp and unwelcoming -- he is in big trouble and I don't see him lasting as long as Dan Doctoroff who I would write and call about infrastructure concerns and he said no worries until the steam pipe explosion that looked like a terror attack by Grand Central.

This guy could not handle a few tough questions at a breakfast by 2 news reporters in front of a mostly white audience of business people...he won't last as long as dollar Bill Dan Doctoroff.

He did mention something about a 3.75 billion dollar deficit -- I think he did and of course he happened to mention closing fire houses and getting rid of emergency boxes.
