Private eye Paul Barresi, who worked with Anthony Pellicano, is interviewed by Fishbowl L.A. (FBLA). One of the topics: their shared, uh, disdain for bloggers:
FBLA: Did you [and Pellicano] share any of the same common beliefs or opinions?
BARRESI: Oh, yes, several.
FBLA: What’s the first that comes to mind?
BARRESI: Well, we both loath cyber stalkers. You know who I’m talking about. Those malicious psychopaths who take pleasure in harming others. They harass and attack people with mean spirited blog postings. They hide behind various screen names, being the cowards that they are. It gives them a false sense of safety, hiding in the shadows, like a frightened rat.
FBLA: Did you ever take action against any of them?
BARRESI: I remember one guy in particular. Tony [Pellicano] and me had a long conversation about him. Tony said he deserved a good beating. But in the end, he was dealt with the legal way — in the courts.
No wonder they were so fond of Pellicano over at the L.A. Times . . .
