Is Cheney Mason the Stupidest Attorney on the Face of the Earth?

1 Apr

On Thursday, March 31, 2011, defense attorney Cheney Mason, a man who predicted defending Casey Anthony from a charge of first degree murder would be “fun”, answered a local reporter’s question as he exited the court building, the same place he predicted he would stroll away from arm in arm with his client in late May or early June 2011.

The exchange between the reporter and Mr. Mason may be seen and heard at the following link.

Kathi Belich: “Do you believe the judge is biased?”

Cheney Mason: “You are probably the stupidest reporter on the face of the Earth.  Get out of my way.”

“You are probably” – This is a weak statement.  If Mr. Mason truly believed Ms. Belich is “the stupidest reporter on the face of the Earth”, he would not have needed to insert the extra weakening word “probably”.  If Mr. Mason does not believe Ms. Belich is “the stupidest”, what does he believe about Ms. Belich?  Most “probably”, he believes the opposite.  In regards to this case, she is “probably” the most knowledgeable, at least in the mind of Mr. Mason whose use of an umbrella to shield himself from the questions of Ms. Belich reveals his fear of her tenacity which will not allow him to escape his past comments and court filings.

Why does Mr. Mason feel a need to use a physical shield?  He feels a need to protect himself.  A man who feels a need to protect himself feels vulnerable.  A man who feels vulnerable fears a force outside himself.  A knight in battle used a shield to protect himself from the attacks of others because he feared the damage such an attack would inflict on his body.  Mr. Mason feels he is under attack by Ms. Belich and fears the damage such an attack will inflict on his psyche and his reputation.

Why does Mr. Mason feel he is under attack?  The question of Ms. Belich reflects the words Mr. Mason employed in a recent court filing in which he stated the judge made a decision which went against the defense because he had a bias towards law enforcement.  Mr. Mason fears his own words.

Why does Mr. Mason fear his own words?  Mr. Mason used the same words as weapons to attack another.  Therefore, Mr. Mason believes any use of the same words is an attack.  Ms. Belich uses Mr. Mason’s words in the question she poses to Mr. Mason, who views such words as weapons aimed against him.

Mr. Mason flees from Ms. Belich, unable to stand his ground and compete in her chosen field of words even though his chosen field is the same.

We have learned Mr. Mason is terrified of Ms. Belich, so terrified he is physically unable to face her and mentally unable to formulate a coherent response to her question, resorting to hurling insults in a feeble attempt to drive her away, much as unarmed villagers might ineffectively hurl stones at an elephant to drive it from the streets of the town.

We have learned Mr. Mason hides behind an umbrella from his fearsome foe in a manner his co-counsel would “probably” describe as “like a little girl”, an insult Mr. Mason’s co-counsel hurled at the prosecutor during a deposition.  Is Mr. Mason having “fun” hiding from Ms. Belich?

We have learned Mr. Mason is vying mightily with his co-counsel, Jose Baez, for the title “stupidest” attorney “on the face of the Earth”.  Who will win?  Only the defendant, Casey Anthony, will be able to give a definitive answer as she enters the chamber in which she will face the combined result of her defense team’s stupidity and her own terrible actions, the ultimate penalty which can be imposed by the state of Florida, the loss of her life.

    Awesome post! Thanks.

    It’s a neck-to-neck race with Baez.

    • Katprint April 1, 2011 at 5:36 pm #

      I think Baez is winning the “Stupidest Attorney on the Face of the Earth” race. Mason is winning the “I Can’t Believe I Agreed To Do This For Free” competition, though.

      • bullstopper April 2, 2011 at 10:34 am #

        I think Mason already won the doing this for free competition, which actually pushed him a few steps ahead in the stupidest attorney race for a few minutes and he tried really hard to maintain a lead by insulting the media he had so long courted prior to and at his joining of this team of fools.

        However, I must agree Baez is always there with another tremendous effort to out-distance his co-counsel, such as his performance in yesterday’s hearings.

        Sims is a late-comer to the race, so she has a lot of distance to make up, but she is also putting forth a great effort.

      Neck-to-neck or shall we say double chin-to-double chin?

      • myra manes April 3, 2011 at 1:04 pm #

        Bwahahahahahahaha ..

    It is an embarrassment for Chaney to make such an arrogant Fool out of himself! Does he really think he is above every one and all other People to him are just plain stupid!
    He was rude, arrogant and unprofessional when it came talking to Ms. Belich. He needs to take a good Look at him self and then see who is stupid, it is not Ms.Belich! JMO

  4. Hilde April 1, 2011 at 7:53 am #

    If Mr.Mason didn’t want to answer any Questions, a simple no Comment would have done just fine.

    Oh my God! Did this just happen recently? Must have, she referenced throwing george under the bus and calling Judge Perry biased. This pig is stupid. Insufferably stupid. Something like this makes him look even worse. Kathi Belich deserves a medal for asking him the questions no one else will and putting up with his disgusting abuse. Is there any way wftv can deal with this pig?

  6. BEES KNEES April 1, 2011 at 8:58 am #

    Huh! There I am!

  7. BEES KNEES April 1, 2011 at 9:08 am #

    Ignore my question. DUH! The first four words tell me it happened yesterday.

    • bullstopper April 2, 2011 at 10:36 am #

      I understand completely. I couldn’t believe it really happened either until I watched it and I did publish the article on April Fool’s Day.

      Although this article is no joke, the topic is fitting as Mason is either the number one or number two April Fool in the courtroom.

  8. offthecuff April 1, 2011 at 11:45 am #

    Case in point: Mason doesn’t always mumble!

    However, perhaps his hearing aid was turned down and he misunderstood Ms.Belich’s question. Maybe he thought she asked if He thought the judge is black? or Does he plan on wearing that beard during the trial? Now, that would be a stupid question.

    But because her question merely mirrors his complaint that the judge is biased, then his calling her stupid was a direct reflection of himself: that he was stupid asserting that the judge is biased.

    Ms. Belich may cherish the old schoolhouse rhyme: I’m rubber, you’re glue; whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks to you.

    Maybe he’ll have a better day today.

    • bullstopper April 2, 2011 at 10:38 am #

      Oooh, for a second there I had a pang of sympathy for Mason’s ill-functioning ears, but when you watch the video, he also tells Kathi she needs to re-read his motion, so he heard exactly what she said.

      Excellent point about the mumbles. The man is a faker in every way.

  9. Carmen April 1, 2011 at 12:53 pm #

    I’m willing to be that mason is verbally abusive to his family. Whan an effing loser this guy is is. Didn’t mason kick or step on Kathi’s foot after her surgery when she tried to interview him? Men who resort to abuse, whether verbal or physical are nothing but cowards.

    • kas April 1, 2011 at 5:28 pm #

      It’s disturbing not just that he does things like this, but that these are his “snap” reactions. This is what he does before he has the opportunity to coat an answer in a pound of BS.

      • bullstopper April 2, 2011 at 10:39 am #

        This is the real Mason. He is petty and abusive when he doesn’t get his way. For a man nearing retirement, he could learn a great many lessons of value from a strict kindergarten teacher.

  10. Venice April 1, 2011 at 5:03 pm #

    Sims is terrible and has brought nothing to the table. All of Baez’s witnesses are non-expert and this is the biggest mockery of the court I have ever seen. Socio Casey will not plea to her daughters murder at her own hands, and what she’s doing to the State of Florida is HORRIBLE!

    • bullstopper April 2, 2011 at 10:42 am #

      Sims is terrible. So are Baez and Mason.

      For the sake of justice and for our own peace of mind in the outcome of this trial, let us hope Finnel brings the overall performance of the defense team to at least bush league if not semi-pro during the penalty phase.

      It is one thing for KC to receive the penalty she deserves, but it is unbearable to watch her own attorney walk her to the death chamber and strap her down before the trial has even started.

  11. Victoria April 1, 2011 at 6:53 pm #

    I’m sorry but Sim’s reminds me of a Q tip that has had a one ended cotton blow out. Mason is just deplorable and I just can’t find the words for Baez. (Well I can but I can’t post them here.)

    • bullstopper April 2, 2011 at 10:43 am #

      Beyond her appearance, she looked completely lost during yesterday’s proceedings, like she couldn’t follow what was happening.

      • Venice April 2, 2011 at 10:46 am #

        Simms needs to buy a television and one with a remote.

  12. MsBingo April 1, 2011 at 7:49 pm #

    Does Mr. Cheney Mason have a substance abuse issue (ie: alcohol) that is getting in the way of his professional conduct? Inquiring minds want to know. ROFL.

    • bullstopper April 2, 2011 at 10:45 am #

      He has an ego abuse problem. He takes regular hits off his own ego to inflate himself with pride, but his head often swells too large to fit comfortably into the neck of his fitted shirts.

  13. cecelia April 2, 2011 at 6:37 am #

    LOL Great article Bull though i think the “stupidest” is reserved for Lieaez… jmo’
    I think Cheney is just smart enough to be dangerous… to women and children. if skanky wasn’t his client he wouldn’t give a rat’s-azz about her and would brush her off as easy as he would a mosquito.
    wonder which side of his mouth he believes today?
    the “plea and get life, or have a circus trial and get life” side or the “walkin’ out on his arm” side.
    I think he was attempting to retire his career on a better note than serrano,,,, he shouldn’t have bet on that whorse!

    • bullstopper April 2, 2011 at 10:48 am #

      He deserves to reap every moment of personal embarrassment he has spent the last two years sowing. Kathi is the rain and sunshine for his crop of idiocy and arrogance. WFTV is the produce distributor who will bring his crop to market for us all enjoy.

  14. LindaNewYork April 2, 2011 at 7:02 am #

    Do you think mason will use his big bad umbrella in the courtroom to shield Casey form ALL the evidence against her? LOL!

    • Venice April 2, 2011 at 9:50 am #

      Mason needs to slap on his suspenders, grab his fishing pole, kiss the Mrs. bye-bye, and go tackle the wilderness with Sarah Palin.

    • bullstopper April 2, 2011 at 10:50 am #

      He needs to bring it to the courtroom just to ward of the copious amounts of falling bullshit brought down by the rain dances of his foolish co-counsel.

  15. myra manes April 2, 2011 at 10:10 am #

    Bull, that photo you used, cracks me up!!!
    It kills me how Cheney tries to “sculp” his face with his beard ..

    It aint workin’ old man, your face is too fat to contain your beard.
    You need a BIGGER beard to cover up that huge-ass chin of yours ..

    , old man ..

    • bullstopper April 2, 2011 at 10:52 am #

      It’s not the best facial trick in the world, but when he is standing, the illusion is good enough you would think Baez would have picked up on it and copied by now.

      • myra manes April 3, 2011 at 1:07 pm #

        Ugh ..
        I hate it but, you’re right Bull, I’m surprised Baez hasn’t copied it yet either ..
        Baez probably doesn’t even think he’s fat ..

  16. becca April 2, 2011 at 7:09 pm #

    Hahahaha poor Mason, scared of the scary female reporter. The fact Mason signed on so far into it, after bloviating about how she was guilty as sin on the news, makes him the winner, Sims is a close second. The 2 of them basically said “look that ship is sinking, let’s jump on and drowned with them.” I am amazed at how many people were willing to damage or destroy their career for Kc. Just blows my mind.

  17. Faith April 2, 2011 at 8:07 pm #

    This is a great article as usual. Now I simply must ask a question. Where did Mason’s reputation come from? Everyone was saying how lucky the “dream team” was to get him. Well I’m sorry but I’m underwhelmed. As has been noted he is a nasty bully,overly impressed with himself,and that’s saying it nicely. I can’t imagine how his behaves in private if he’s this nasty in front of the press.

  18. Nevada April 2, 2011 at 10:54 pm #

    Great read, Bull! And all the comments as well. =)

  19. SpanktheMonkey April 3, 2011 at 9:36 pm #

    In my personal (humble, albeit) opinion – Cheney Mason is a drunk. I’m guessing that’s the reason he’s performing as poorly as he is. Time will tell, I guess. Jose Baez perhaps has issues as well…but stupidity prevails. Mr. Mason, on the other hand REEKS.

    • Venice April 4, 2011 at 10:00 am #

      I agree Spank. Mr. Mason probably carries a flask within his suit. Real professional, huh?

  20. chica April 4, 2011 at 11:10 am #

    Hello and Goodmorning

    I just wondered if you considered doing an article on the obcessions of Jose baez.

    We have noticed time and time again that Jose is pre-ocuppied with drinking redbulls. He has sent his different assistants/ investigater to fetch this beverage for him many times. Why does he need so much redbull and he has even been observed pouring his redbull into a cup as judge perry was calling the court to order!!

    His other obcession the pen clicking
    it’s annoying to the viewers and to the prosecution!
    at one time Linda Drane Burdick calls him over to kindly ask him to stop he arrogantly walks away clicking the dern pen!!
    On the PEN CLICKING this is just beyond anything. Well this entire case anyway. LDB asked Jose to stop clicking his pen and look at his reaction

    appears at 14:08
