The principles of Journalistic codes of ethics are designed as guides through numerous difficulties, such as conflicts of interest, to assist journalists in dealing with ethical dilemmas. The codes and canons provide journalists a framework for self-monitoring and self-correction. P.J Tobia on take. A corrupt reporter on sale
As with other ethical codes, there is a perennial concern that the standards of journalism are being ignored. One of the most controversial issues in modern reporting is media bias, especially on political issues, but also with regard to cultural and other issues. Sensationalism is also a common complaint. Minor factual errors are also extremely common, as almost anyone who is familiar with the subject of a particular report will quickly realize.
P.J Tobia former middle of the road writer of New Times in Florida who used to write about “where to get a good Pizza and elephants in the zoo” was reportedly asked to leave or fired by the publication because of writing false stories. He arrived in Nashville and began to work for Nashville Scene a trashy local tabloid.
Nashville Scene should not be compared to a decent and reputable daily newspaper that offers its readers helpful articles, sports, locals, international news and much more. It is a weekly tabloid that offers not much of anything to read. It is all about restaurant ads, concerts, how to find a lover and other immoral, trashy and worthless trash.
Now comes P.J Tobia on take. A corrupt reporter on sale- P.J Tobia arrives in town and finds Yuri Cunza self-appointed and life time president of an organization called Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. This organization is known as reported and described by members or attendees as a place to mingle, enjoy a cold drink and soliciting a date or sex. There are rarely any Hispanics attending these networking events. However it’s the source of income for Yuri Cunza even if he fails to provide any solid business research or information to members seeking an avenue to reach Hispanic consumers. Chamber is a none profit organization but he has refused to provide an accounting report of the chamber to anyone including Salvador Guzman who founded it. By law such information should be open to public.
The phrase “ Birds of feather flock together” may have played a role to bring these corrupt people together. There are reports that Yuri Cunza and P.J Tobia are “The couples” and have been caught in th act in one of the local establishments.
Yuri Cunza and P.J Tobia reportedly formed a team of crooks in Nashville. Yuri Cunza needed someone who could destroy reputation and standing of those people that he disagreed with, stood in his way, felt threaten by and a source of protection to his shoddy business dealings. These two individuals enjoyed and shared many things, as some say it included sharing the former girlfriend of Yuri Cunza, drinking, wild sex, and going to nude bars and more.
They made frequent visits to nude bars where Yuri Cunza is a regular, lives, breathes, drinks and reportedly solicits sex and persuades dancers to participate in porn movies – said a dancer whose identity is kept confidential. Yuri Cunza is reportedly selling these porn videos in Mexico she said.
Yuri Cunza has bragged in public that he provided P.J Tobia a list of people “ get them list he said”. This is the list of people he disagrees with or feels threatened by, question his unethical business dealings or do not wish to associate themselves with him because of his tarnished reputation in the community. After all he is an admitted criminal. These individual are; Juan Borges, a police officer, Marcela Gomez a business woman, Anthony Lucas advertising creative director, an employees of federal government that Yuri Cunza attempted to bribe and many more. Yuri Cunza entertained this individual to dismissed a complaint filed against of iof his clients, he has threatened Salvador Guzman founder of Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce when he called Yuri Cunza “a mother fucker thief in Puerto Rico.” However P. J Tobia never wrote a single derogatory line about his criminal friend Yuri Cunza, John Lamb, Gregg Ramos, Eva Melo and other. However he wrote so many friendly, untrue and complementary articles about them.
Yuri Cunza always bragged about his solid and unquestionable relationship with Nashville Scene. He has told people “ I could and would destroy anyone who stands in my way. I will call my friends such as P.J Tobia or the editor of Scene to take care them.” There are numerous witnesses including several employees of the publication who have come forward and confirmed it. How did he achieve such strong hold on Nashville Scene and its staff is puzzling and should be investigated in future?
P.J Tobia was called upon by Yuri Cunza to write a damaging article about a businesswoman – lets call her “Miss M” because he claimed that she owed him money. The title – “A businesswoman who sleeps her way in to get on TOP” decided the headline.
However P.J Tobia did not write the article because reportedly her lawyer friend warned him of the consequences. This conversation took place at La Hacienda Restaurant in Franklin Tennessee. There are witnesses who have heard the conversation that took place between P.J Tobia and the lawyer friend of “Miss M”.
T.J Tobia decided not wrote any unfriendly article about any of his friends but he certainly did not hesitate to write lies about those he was asked to harm. He had every intention to write lies about a respectable advertising executive because he was asked to. He was provided numerous documents which showed his information were false but he refused to look at them and said, ” Paper has to go to print tonight- sorry”. This conversation is on tape and copies of the documents are here on this site.
Why did he refuse to double check what he was going to write? Did anyone pay him off? Was it a favor to make his friends happy? Was it sex as some say? What did motivate him to write these lies? What business of Nashville Scene or P.J Tobia is it to question anyone’s success? Does anyone need to receive approval of Nashville Scene, P.J Tobia or Yuri Cunza to run a business in Nashville? If you look the title of his article (a conversation with an executive-Business Journal) you will see that he intended to harm Anthony Lucas because he was asked by a few friends. What did this article have to do with Nashville Scene, a trashy tabloid to question reputation of another news organization specially a respected one. All these could happen if someone such as Yuri Cunza an admitted and convicted criminal, John Lamb, Gregg Ramos or other friends ask him to do their dirty work because a none Hispanic is smarter than they are. That makes P.J Tobia a repugnant and despicable reporter who would his soul and the profession in order to please friends. Or was there sex involved that made him a puppet, and dishonest journalist. Why should anyone believe in any of the articles he writes.
As with other ethical codes, there is a perennial concern that the standards of journalism are being ignored or in this case sold in exchange for favors or currency.
One of the most controversial issues in modern reporting is media bias, especially on political issues, but also with regard to cultural and other issues. Sensationalism is also a common complaint. Minor factual errors are also extremely common, as almost anyone who is familiar with the subject of a particular report will quickly realize. But writing or reporting a completely false story should be considered a crime… and in this case P.J Tobias should not have any business to be a reporter. How much did he get paid to write these articles? Was he a hired gun? Was it the wild sex or the porn movies?Where did he go after he was hit with several lawsuits?
