Belling Continues To Attack Family

Mark Belling, bellicose bellower, has questioned the autopsy findings of Dr. Mays, and has brought even further unnecessary pain and anguish to the late doctor's grieving family.

Readers have alerted me that he continues his haranguing of the family, even though the autopsy was independently proven to be accurate.

Belling's harassment continues despite the fact that Conley Publishing Group, the media company that carries his columns, felt compelled to issue a retraction and an apology for his blatantly false statements and accusations:

Belling's source for his conspiracy theory appears to be the doctor's brother, who to put it kindly, has several issues of his own, as Michael Horne reports at Milwaukee World.

If Belling had any sense of class, he would offer an apology personally. A word of advice: Don't hold your breath for that to happen.

And if he doesn't issue a sincere apology, then WISN and Conley Publishing needs to finally sever their ties to him, lest he sullies their reputations even further.


  1. Of course, no one will sever ties, but this is such a shame.

    What was in it for Belling to go off like this? I'm perplexed.

  2. Cindy, it's ego, pure ego. He will not acknowledge that he's wrong unless he has something to lose, and it's clear that he doesn't. Conley continues to run his column and WISN carries his program, so his income is safe. Loss of credibility is of no concern, because he doesn't care what others think about him.

  3. That has got to be the most hilarious correction/retraction ever. What did his column manage to get right?

  4. It's long past time to ask, "You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?"

  5. Dear Grumps --

    That's the quote I used at the beginning of my very first post on the subject on November 21st at milwaukeeworld. Ain't it the truth!

  6. From a previous comment aimed at Michael Horne by our shoot-from-the-hip friend, Dan:

    So, in your kind words your article is "Nonsense through and through."

    Still waiting for Dan to apologize, too.

  7. A story most of you would not otherwise give two hoots about except that it is an opportunity to jab at a nemesis.

  8. Roland-

    There was no controversy to a person dying from a medical condition. It was Belling's idiotic conspiracy theory that made it a controversy, and hence a story.

  9. Not only that, but do you even understand the purpose to this site?

  10. I know Truman Marquez very well. If his brother was anything like him, he must have been an exceptional human being.

    To publish anyone's personal financial situation at will and try to do harm to a brother that truly is distraught over the casual treatment to his concern, goes beyond someone who's morally inept.

    To further accuse Truman of being trite and of being a sensation-seeking artist is ignorant of his intent as an artist. To minimize his creative talent is also to expose a monumental mental void where fine art is concerned.

    I hope that all who miss this wonderful man will seek other venues than hurting other family members who are truly concerned about a herediary condition that could affect his family. However grief can paralyze a family, surely, this condition needs to be explored for those same reasons.

    What is there to be afraid of?
