You are clueless...but that's ok, you're shrink must not have gotten to the part with you that informs you that YOU ARE NOT GOD. It's ok, God is forgiving. As I said, I am praying for you and I'm adding people like you as well.

I think the same old crime and mayhem stories get old too. I don't really think it does anyone a service to list every petty crime in the newspaper, but if you look at the Herald-Citizen website, her stories always have the most views. Obviously she is doing her job if she is writing the stuff people flock to. The newspaper is in business to make money. You clicking a link to one of her stories or picking up a paper helps them sell ads. Every time you read one of her stories you dislike so much, you're basically encouraging her to write more.
Just something to think about.
I Like the way you think...it is the true reality..scandals SELL!!!

May I ask the name of your late b/f? She wrote an article when my brother passed in a crash...needless to say, it was more speculation than fact.

It was Tommy Hicks. It happened a few years ago...There was a lot more to the story. Most of the officers here tend to write their reports on their speculation rather than fa. cts, and the sad thing is that they have a report writing class at the academy. It is crucial to write facts and of course take witness info. I'm sorry to hear about your brother.

I especially like how police reports are taken verbatim and printed. Sloppy, sloppy work. What ever happened to ethics in journalism?
If you knew anything about journalism, you'd know there is no code of ethics in the field.

And i'm not giving a hit to journalism making a smart comment. There is literally no code of ethics.

That is why it's important to drill into green journalists the importance of ethics like being accurate, and about having the truth and things like that.

*sorry for the multiple posts

So you think reporters should read the reports then change them to suit idiots like you?

I think what was being said is journalists should not solely rely on police reports to write factual stories. A professional journalist goes out and asks questions from all involved and then prints "a story". So idiots like you, "gathering of criminals", don't place judgement on people and situations you have no clue about but claim to because Mary Jo Denton printed it. If I were judgemental I'd say there's no point in arguing with someone, with a screen name such as yours, in regards to negative comments about others. How much time have you spent in the crossbar hotel? Let me guess, that is personal and you don't feel that the public should know. Well Mary Jo Denton, here's your chance to be a REAL JOURNALIST and maybe even do a lil investigating. "gathering of criminals deserves a shot at the front page.

She printed a story about 10 years ago, The cops side of the story. When the actual facts came to light and the real story was told, I made her go back and print a apology. Needless to say the first story made headlines, the apology was about pg.5, in a small hidden paragraph. Everyone is GUILY until proven INNOCENT in her eyes and alot of other peoples eyes. You can't always believe what you read, especially coming from her.

What are you blabbing about? You make no sense... get registered for what? And I have a job, I don't need any help from your dumb azz. Why don't you get a job or go back to school. Just get off of topix saying stuff people can't even understand. You are such an idiot.

Come back to work? Umm. I will be back to work tomorrow, just like I am every Monday after a wknd. Off....thats something you wouldn't know about since all you know is to lay around eating twinkies while making no sense in the world on topix. Sounds like you need to get back on your meds...you are living in a world of make believe and fairy tales. You are such an idiot. Get a life, no one has time to try to figure out your mumbling and babbling,
