SaveAnaheim.com: Gone With the Wind

Jason Young fullertonThat was quick.

SaveAnaheim.com has come and gone. Jason Young started this his attack blog last year, using it to personally malign political figures he disliked and to apotheosize those he liked.  Young, a wedding videography with a checkered past, employed a simplistic, manichean blogging style that reminded me of old communist organs like Pravda and consiting mainly with re-gurgitating other people’s content.  If you had the good fortune of not having read SaveAnaheim.com, it was the blog equivalent of a certain behavior exhibited by simians in zoos.

In October of last years, the OC Weekly named it “Best Blog of 2012” (sort of a doorknob award in the OC blogosphere). Now its history, and Young has shuttered the eponymous political action committee and moved to the Golden Hills section of Fullerton. The URL is re-directed to the New Anaheim, a garish blog that basically aggregates press releases and OC Register articles and is operated by the even more vicious and meretricious Art Pedroza.

For those unfamiliar with him, Pedroza is a train wreck: a political chameleon and thrice-failed candidate for Santa Ana political office with delusions of grandeur who was successfully sued for buying domain names that were variations on the business names of some of his critics and directing those URLs to the website of the North American Man-Boy Love Association. Charming.

Goodbye, SaveAnaheim.com, and good riddance.

  1. Wonder what made him get skittish? Was it 1) the fact that he never properly discloses his sources of funding? 2) realized that his blog was garbage and no one cared? 3) maybe he picked up another felony and is in jail or prison or 4) saw that light that Tait, Ward, Chuchua, Diaond and his cronies are disgusting. Hmmm….inquiring minds want to know!

  2. Not entirely gone with the wind – seems the Voice of OC(EA) may have paid him off – if you try to go to saveanaheim.com, it directs you to the Anaheim section on VOC – http://www.voiceofoc.org/oc_north/anaheim/

    Check it out for yourself. I’m sure the felon and his sidekick Cynthia Ward got a nice pay day out of the deal! Probably hoping to get their character and political assasination work picked up by the AP and PBS.

  3. That is disgusting. Why do they spew venom and hatred on others? We need everyone here to stand up and expose Cynthia and Felon Young for what they are- agents of Tait and vile people.

  4. [Comment deleted because — once again — nothing more than dishonest mewling from a childish, dishonest hack.]

  5. Ha! Jason must have seen your post! Now he’s redirected his URL to Voice of OC! How appropriate, since Jason’s is basically Adam’s intern.

  6. It comes up when I search for it.

  7. I think there is a story here, Matt. Save Anaheim gets directed to New Anaheim and then directed to Voice of OC. Proof that they are all in bed together. Jason is also connected to OC Weekly. He and John Santoianni do PRAs for EZ info and feed it to OC Weekly and their folks…PLEASE!!! Your games are just stupid and not effective. GO AWAY!!!

    • Yes, I did a PRA for EZ info. However, I did not feed it to anyone. It was for my own information. I wasn’t even aware anyone else did a PRA. If I was, then why would I need to make one of my own?

  8. Something is definitely going on but, sadly, I don’t think its what you’re hoping it is.

    This same thing happened a month or so ago and it popped back up. When I navigate to the site I get SaveAnaheim and new stories that were posted as late as yesterday.

    I believe there is some truth to the rumors that Cynthia Ward took over the blog site from Jason and doesnt know what she’s doing. Hence the messed up links, redirections, etc.

    Alas, rumors of their death have been in error.

  9. Stand For Anaheim

    The website is down again. Let’s hope it stays GONE!
