Andy Martin scoops the mainstream media with Sunderland family scam story
Andy Martin’s ContrarianCommentary.com was the first to expose the Sunderland family as “reality TV” scammers. Other media are now following Andy’s lead and reporting how the crass Sunderland family adults have used (and abused) their children as pawns in their financial shenanigans. “We were first,” Andy says. “Blogger Nation wins another race against the bloated, incompetent and totally misleading mainstream media. I am more convinced than ever that Abby Sunderland’s ‘rescue’ was nothing more than a stunt to hype their financial promotions, after the original ‘story’ elicited little public or media response. So they staged a rescue. Crass, Criminal. People are getting tired of whacko families that let their kids risk their lives for fame.”

Andy Martin says the mainstream media are feeding the reality TV scammers by treating them as legitimate news events instead of commercial exploitationists and fraud artists
(NEW YORK)(June 14, 2010) Andy Martin, Executive Editor of ContrarianCommentary.com, who is called the “Internet Powerhouse” for exposing Barack Obama’s personal lies and Congressman Mark Kirk’s fabricated military record, and well as other “firsts” and “exclusives,” was the first to blow the whistle on Abby Sunderland and her Sunderland family reality TV scams.
“I am convinced that the ‘rescue’ was staged to obtain media publicity,” Martin says. “We were the first to expose the ‘Sunderland shenanigans’ on Friday and again on Sunday morning.
“By Monday morning (today) the New York Post had followed our lead and jumped on the story. The Sunderlands are creeps that are abusing their children and should be prosecuted by California authorities.
“Once again the ‘Internet Powerhouse’ has scooped—and embarrassed-the mainstream media by exposing a reality TV scam long before ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC wisened up. That’s why people turn to Blogger Nation and ContrarianCommentary.com for the first facts and first analysis. The mainstream media follow us.
“We are proud to have been the first media source to expose the Sunderlands as scam artists. We believe closer examination of this family and an interrogation of Abby Sunderland will show her parents sent her into harm’s way as part of a reality TV promotion. The ‘rescue’ was staged to gain media attention after initial attempts to attract interest were unsuccessful.”
Martin suggests that California law enforcement and child protection authorities seize the tapes/films of the Sunderlands and open a criminal investigation.
“I renew what I said last Friday: these parents belong in jail, and the children belong under state supervision,” Martin says.
“The timing of our stories (Vienna time) are marked by our Internet postings:
Jay Leno and David Letterman, are you paying attention?
