Re: “A parade of asshats

This kind of trolling by Karen Velie is chronicled in my book. It's important for readers and the New Times to see a live example of what I've dealt with.

Re: “A parade of asshats

No amount of bizarre libel about me will ever supersede a unanimous jury verdict and subsequently rejected appeals.

What I find interesting is that there's no record of anyone named "Peter Gerold" residing in Cambria. In my book, Defamers: How Fake News Terrorized a Community & Those Who Dared to Fight It (https://amzn.to/2WV5GNP), I discuss how Karen Velie and her daughter Summer have used several troll accounts on Facebook to spread misinformation exclusively reported by them to a larger audience. These accounts were prevalent on my Facebook pages, harassing and threatening me constantly. Velie has exclusively accused me of being a "paid shill" without evidence, of course, and has said I testified in court about "throw[ing] bleach in the face" of Velie's daughter. Nobody else has levied these allegations except them and only them.

"Peter" is one example why Velie is mentally unstable, dangerous and lacks the fitness to report the news accurately. If you resort to fake accounts to make false accusations after losing a libel suit, you're not playing with a full deck.

CCN lost a $1.1 million libel suit because they refused to make corrections.

Re: “Sucker punch

"Velie also beat New Times and all other news outlets to the Ogren story."

Which Julie Tacker fed to Velie and was ultimately rebuked by SLO County Counsel shortly after the article in question was published.

You can read more about Tacker and CalCoastNews in "Defamers: How Fake News Terrorized a Community and Those Who Dared to Fight It," out at local bookstores throughout SLO County. Also available in paperback and Amazon Kindle: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/17964216…
