If you’ve been member of a4cwsn for any length of time, you’ll have seen and noticed that Mr James likes to share that he worked for the Rolling Stone. After some googling, you guessed it, this fact about Mr James appears as well to have been a stretch of the truth. I also recently did another blog post about some of the deception that has come to light regarding a4cwsn and Mr James (linky-do)
(Don’t worry, I have tons of pretty pictures and linky-dos for you!)
So, Let me show you what has been discovered about this claim.
In this picture, he shares with #storyappchat that he was in Marketing for Rolling Stone AND Google
In this screenshot, he says that he worked for Rolling Stone again, on Facebook
Next will be a bunch of screen shots from different articles related to a4cwsn and Gary James, I will include linky-dos after pictures.
So, we see all of these wonderful articles and how he time and time again mentions that he worked for Rolling Stone, correct?
Well, let me show what he actually did now. Linky-do
For the non link clickers and just because I love me some pretty pictures.
I underlined the keyword in that paragraph there. Butler. Yes, folks. That’s right. He was a Butler. Also known as an Estate Manager.
As we know, Mr James is also always mentioning his Olympic career.
” Gary James wasn’t always a butler. A track-and field star in his native England, he loved nothing
more than running, jumping and competing.
Back then, his life wasn’t about serving; it was about
striving, sweating and sprinting.” – Direct quote from above posted Linky-do
He may have certainly worked for Wenner Media, managing that building, other quotes from him imply that he was working AT Rolling Stone Magazine. His work for LA Reid/Roger Waters was as an estate manager/butler, still a really sweet gig in my opinion. No shame in that. However he has misrepresented himself as having worked in PR/Marketing for Rolling Stone Magazine.
I also have this email.
It seems that he figured some people would google Gary James and Rolling Stone Magazine and come across this gentleman, linky-do
– He did indeed write for Rolling Stone Magazine.
If you simply google Gary James and Rolling Stone Magazine, you can clearly see how people would assume he worked for Rolling Stone Magazine. Linky-do
We are given half truths and he doesn’t bother to correct them.
I do not doubt that he’s rubbed elbows with some influential folks. I do believe it’s a stretch to say you worked for Rolling Stone Magazine as a butler though.
It’s kind of like saying you worked for Oprah, when in fact you only cleaned the Harpo Building.
This man has obviously represented himself as someone who he aspires to be, someone he has never been.
