Extract from Story:
Really? Trump won’t let the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases speak or give advice on CNN during a pandemic? Is Trump trying to kill the rest of us, so he doesn’t have any opposition in November? So this guy, whose sister did his homework and paid someone to take his SAT Exams, is in the White House with the help of convicted felons like Roger Stone and his…...

Firstly, I thought that 'real' news stories were taboo here on the Spoof. This is a blatant news story with a subtle twist, but sorry, it is just too near the real story. I have had so many spoofs rejected because I dared use a 'real' news story and put my not so subtle twist to it!! Outrageous double standards here!

Secondly: As a book author I would not dare put my internet links underneath my spoofs!! This is blatant free-bee marketing! If I did such outrageous things, Mark would ban me!! In addition, our wonderful co-editor, you know who he is, condones it and, thinks this type of spoof is incredible!! What the fuck is going on here???

Level playing fields, my butt!! Double standards for some here, fantastic!! Just do what you want and put your URL's up and links to your fabulous internet sites!

I once paid Mark a substantial amount of money to promote my book here! This writer get's away with murder and tells the world for nothing about her other projects on every singe spoof she posts. Sorry, I need an explanation how she get's away with it. Quite incredible, unless she is paying Mark thousands for the pleasure, which I doubt very much.

If I don't get an explanation, then I'll bang my website links on every post I write too, but I know dear MW or Mark will reject and remove them....Or demand mega-bucks for the pleasure...

If I remember rightly, the stories you had rejected were 'the real stories with a few expletives thrown in, plus phrases in brackets, plus some curious asides'.

The truth is, that, although K.C. Bell uses real information, she adds something to her stuff by way of political commentary - something you didn't do - and she makes it funny with references to past events, historical happenings, showbiz, and the like. They are opinion pieces - that's why most of them are in the Magazine.

Yikes! A real author.

I'd better watch my step.

Do you mean me? Did I use the word 'incredible'? I think I said "brilliant", and I was trying to be concise. No need to do that now, of course, so let me expand.

The mention of him chickening out of Vietnam, but now 'cracking the whip' at home, I thought, was worthwhile.

And the image of the Gestapo vans, with their whirling antennae was clever.

I thought so, anyway.

I'm looking into this for you. When I have an answer, I'll let you know. To be honest, I'd never even given it a second thought, but, now you've raised it, I'll find out.

She isn't the only one though...

Can you say how much?
Was it money well spent?
Why aren't you on the Bestseller list?
Did you say 'murder'?
I should be careful, if I were you. You know what these Yanks are like for suing at the drop of a murder accusation...

Yes I have had 6 books published in the US, Australia and South Africa by correct publishers and not vanity or self-publishers. I also have an agent in New Zealand + a Hollywood film contract! Dear MW, you can take the piss all you want, but these are facts.

Your fav US spoofer writes iMHO political clap trap and does not make anybody else laugh apart from yourself, funny eh? As for many of my spoofs you touched on; also bullshit because I never, ever wrote a spoof directly using the actual story. A backbone, inspiration, yes, but my spoofs were never identical like your lovely US lady who doesn't twist anything, just bland and boring IM objective HO.

No more discussion here, it aint worth my precious time. Oh, why don't I bang my spoofs on the forum to catch more readers? No need mate, the punters either love them or hate them, I really don't give a shit, and yes, Mark cashed £250,00 for the pleasure that she gets for sod all..Ask him!

This seems to be 'par for the course', JO, unfortunately.

To start with, I hit 'Discuss this in the forum', and made a perfectly acceptable comment about the story.

In response, you rode in on your high horse, ranting about something that would have been better taken up with Mark via the message system, than in the forum. As I said to you already, you had a valid question, but you always enjoy playing the 'victim'.

Instead of just raising the question about links, you had to go further. You started the by-now familiar spoken-from-behind-the-hand taunts directed towards Mark and myself

(...our wonderful co-editor, you know who he is, condones it and, thinks thinks this kind of spoof is incredible)

pretending to be ambiguous, as if this were, in itself, somehow 'funny'.

Apart from the fact you mis-quoted me, I did think her article was good, and, it being an opinion piece and NOT a news story, I put it in the Magazine.

That is what the Magazine is for.

The stories of yours that were rejected by Mark were invariably identified, by yourself, as news stories. I believe that was the problem - you were reproducing a real news story with no twists or extra information that would have been seen as funny.

Anybody who has the will and determination to finish writing a book, has my utmost respect.

And a Hollywood film contract? Wow! That's fantastic! And all the more curious that, with all that success you've had, you still found it in your heart to genuinely complain that somebody else was being allowed to do something you're not on a spoof news website.

It takes all sorts, I suppose.

She's not my favourite US spoofer. I like her stuff - it bounces along, she throws in her comments, she includes supporting stuff, and ends in a coherent way.

If I had to choose my favourite, however, I'd choose Dave Henry. In the spirit of being fair, and giving others a chance, you could do worse than checking out his stuff.

He's as funny as fuck.

I covered this above. Most of hers end up in the Magazine; not all, but most. Why? Because she is commenting on real events, and she lets us know her opinions. Magazine, all day long.

Sorry, this is no reaction to your comments MW. However, I just surfed over to one of your lovely US writer's spoofs and, low and behold, all of her fucking Amazon book links are plastered all over the bottom of her spoof, just like she does all the time!

Sorry Mark, or MW, this is blatant, unacceptable marketing!! You can call me what you want, a Ranting Butthole, but sorry, this is just a total abuse of what The Spoof is supposed to be....

If she continues, I will plaster my links all over my spoofs because if she can, so can I...Unbelievable....!!

I've sent a message to Mark, JO. For the moment, I can't do anything else.

If you're right, I'm sure Mark will let the writer know.

Patience, old chap.

Did you check out Dave Henry's stuff yet? He's awfully funny.

I find K.C. Bell’s story as funny as jock itch. You guys are so anxious to find hidden humor in K.C. Bell’s progressive gibberish that you jump the shark to kiss her ass for expressing your own political agenda.

I don’t care what political view you wish to promulgate. But express it with a little humor. I can read this vicious shit in the Washington Post or NYT. I don’t need to read it here.

Well, it's only me, really.

JO doesn't like her, and, if truth be told, I only remarked about the Gestapo vans.

I'll keep quiet next time.

By the way, I'm not sure I have a 'political agenda'.

I just rubbish whoever's 'in the news'.

In the interests of being prudent, JO, we really don't know yet what Mark's response is.

Maybe K.C. Bell has a similar kind of arrangement with Mark as you said you, yourself, once had. How do we know?

Rather than using words like "despise", and phrases like "abusing ther rights", shouldn't we wait to see how things turn out?

You usually portray yourself as someone who acts in the interests of others.

Let's wait and see, instead of the constant jibes.
