At least one of us had advanced notice on the article, if not the timing. Not Another Dime (For Ken Whitman) was listed as a "detailed (if one-sided) account of everything" which is something we don't quite agree with. Yes, this blog is one-sided in the fact that we simply don't let Ken "Whit" Whitman post here.....well, anymore at least. While we only have a couple of writers, there are a lot of folks contributing to the information collection and fact-based content. Over time the sheer volume of information gathered has all but jaded the writers, so impartial we are not.
Personally we embrace the unfortunate fact that we cannot remain unbiased in our coverage in the grade A cluster fuck that is Ken "Whit" Whitman's many errors in judgment, common sense, and adult responsibility. Please, by all means, assume EVERYTHING we've posted here is flat-out false/fake/made-up. Follow the leads and links yourself and read what you can, when you can, and where you can. Use your own judgement and make up your own mind. I doubt there is a single contributor here that would fault you for reading what they've shared with a careful skepticism.
Some of these things simply defy all logic and seem ridiculous, but if you do your own due diligence we're convinced you'll come to the same inevitable conclusions we have.
OK, the good part referenced in this post's title is the extra press about our main man Kenny....er, Ken "Whit" Whitman. The bad part is something that this writer, if not everyone behind NAD, feels we need to take a strong stand on, which is taking the low road when dealing with Ken "Whit" Whitman, as in this example from the Girl Downtown IMDB page:
You can use your own imagination about what words are covered up here as we aren't going to post them here.
This is too much. Even if you believe Ken "Whit" Whitman is a man of low moral character and an out-right thief /con-man, posting things like this is....well, it is just wrong. Yes, these are Ken "Whit" Whitman's words (as screen-shot from Facebook), but re-posting things like this ends up causing some collateral damage. He wasn't the only person working on Girl Downtown....
Personally, this writer thinks that working with Ken "Whit" Whitman is probably punishment enough. NAD exists to help educate those who which to look up information about Ken "Whit" Whitman, not as an opportunity to unduly harangue the man. Besides this kind of stuff is more in line with how he deals with folks online* and we shouldn't stoop so low.
*We've heard that Ken "Whit" Whitman claims those screenshots are from someone using a fake burner Facebook account, but we've also noted how he's the only one we've met that like to flip through accounts. At least one person has confirmed that this is the standard of behavior from Ken "Whit" Whitman when dealing with folks via Facebook messages.
We've gotten a comment from Ken "Whit" Whitman, which as a matter of principle we will not post, but it was shared internally and I (this editor) believe it was also shared with Jolly Blackburn. The gist of the comment was "I only have two specific accounts" which is clearly BS just based on our observations here at NAD.
