Although I do think that WWAY acts just like TMZ; I think the comments above crying out above to leave him alone are crazy. Leave him alone? NO WAY! They need to keep pressuring him until he steps down. Then he should be left alone. He is in public office. I don’t think anyone deserves harassment but I also do not think that anyone like this should make any decisions related to public trust or funds.

He does not deserve to hold public office. He needs professional help and I hope he gets it.

FYI all and especially poster Ronnie Rhodes, that “reporter” last night wasn’t Cliff Pyron, it was the “news” director, Scott Pickey.

Your reporter could have shown a little more class with this joke of a report. Are you a news reporter or paparazzi?

Why are all you people complaining about “Your County Commissioner “. Don’t you remember who you voted for. It’s your fault. Take the blame for putting someone like this in office. Look at the track record of the other loser Commissioners. Your vote put them there. Shut up! Do somethining about it! Research the people running for office and make a better mistake next time.

Who cares about all of the details now………..Mr. Berger has become too much of a distraction and quite a liability. He should resign and run for office again in the future when/if he can handle it.
