SARATOGIAN IS A LIAR
In an infamous incident in which Barbara Lombardo hosted a porn site at her personal blog from Dec 28 till it was removed January 5 by Stephen Shoemaker the paper now falsely claims they were not properly informed of the links location.I will now prove they are lying.... Now as any blogger knows these Porn posters are always out there looking to take advantage of a unattended blog. And so since Barb is technologically challenged her blog was ripe for the taking. What I thought was a humorous event has turned ugly with Stephen Shoemaker blatantly lying to cover his boss’s incompetence.
Shoemaker writes Steve Shoe said...
“Well, let's be fair: We in the office here at 20 Lake Ave. are all wearing multiple hats and tending to many things at any given time. Those of use who are less-prolific bloggers than our former city reporter (now sports editor) don't check for new blog comments on a regular basis -- myself included.
When notified via e-mail that there was an offensive spam link left as a comment, we were only told it was "on our site." Naturally we looked at saratogian.com and didn't see anything, and did not immediately think it may have been in one of the blogs (which are skinned to look like our site but are actually administered by Google's Blogger) and as such accessed differently.
Anyhow, it should be a moot point now, but I'm honestly surprised that a) anyone would be surprised by a spam comment in this day and age and b) would make more out of it than it is.”
I sent them two e-mails
Dear Barb.I and another person have tired to tell you that you have a Japanese porn site on your comment section in your blog. IT has been up for a couple days
Barb wrote back.
I can't find what you are referring to. Where is it?

If you click on it you will see
In two e-mails I clearly told her were it was located and the fact it was indeed Japanese porn. You were not only told it was "on our site.". You were told were it was and what it was and a link was provided.
NOW YOU ARE SHOCKED SHOCKED that people would make a big deal out of it. Well I will explain it to you.
First you hosted a Japanese Porn site.
Second when notified twice, with a link and a description you refused to bother to take it down.
Third. You then lied about it.
At best you are inept and at worst you have no journalistic integrity. Nether one is very pretty.
