WE POST, YOU DECIDE. Lowell Sun assistant editorial-page editor Ann Frantz writes:
Any writer knows it's a snap to extract a sentence and use it out of context for effect - as you did with my column, which does not apologize for that photo, but supports it.
I try to recognize the motivations that prompt people on different sides of an issue and address them, maybe even change a mind or two. I don't screech like a banshee at them....
GOOD journalists don't alter content to give themselves something for their own juicy column, just media hacks.
Wishy-washy? Here's something that you, with your simple black-and-white head, can understand: Up yours.
And thanks for reading! Didn't know you actually did much of that.
Hey, Ann! As you know, I posted a link to your entire column so that Media Log readers could decide for themselves what you were up to. I also did not say, suggest, or even hint that you "apologize[d]" for the photo. [See clarification below.] Uh, GOOD journalists don't put words in other people's mouths.
