I think she is told what stories to write. Now, if Texarkana Gazette didnt care for her writing, she wouldnt be working there. I always think of her as the Robyn Hood of writing.

She covers legal matters. Those are, by nature, negative to some.

did you notice you can't answer no? I read a story a few weeks ago she wrote about a woman who turned her life around after being on drugs and losing kids.

News is news. Whether it is negative or positive is in the mind of the reader.

Not a very fair poll is it. I think Lynn writes great stories. I've heard some say that she wasn't completely accurate in some of her stories. All the same she writes good stories that are easy to read.

I don't know whether Cooksey can stand Lynn LaRowe or not. But I have gone back and tried to find some positive stories she has written. Almost impossible. Have you talked to him? How do you know he can't stand her? Did someone tell you that? If you will read Friday's story carefully, you will find "Cooksey provided". If he is providing her information, why would he do that if he can't stand her? Cooksey is a controversial character. His name sells newspapers. Do I object to the stories she prints about him? Absolutely not. As long as they are factual.
My question to all of you is: Has Cooksey ever done anything worthwhile or good? Or is he and has he always been a piece of crap?

I can't answer that. I don't know him... just read about him in the paper. I really wonder, though, about an attorney who has hot checks out...

Don't get me wrong, Don in his time has did some good things for the area and was an excellent attorney. He conquered his addiction to alcohol and helped others do the same, but he has lost his drive and love for the things he once did and it reflects in his actions as it does in anyone. He is just more well known and is placed at a higher standard being an attorney. Yes, I'm sure he "provided" the gazette with a letter and copies of checks, but why did he not take care of the checks before it came to this point? According to the article Miller DA said that Don had known about them for some time and could have taken care of them, but didn't. He should have paid attention to his clients and cases, but he didn't.. Something else was more important than being on time for hearings and returning calls to his clients. Karma is a dangerous thing, and until he realizes his actions will reflect back on him, he will continue to have problems.

Boy do I have to eat my words. Right after I put this poll on here, Lynn writes a story about Judge Miller and what a wonderful job he is doing with his drug court. That article was certainly positive. Sorry, I was given wrong information. Looks like whoever said she reports on the legal news and it is negative was correct.
I hope she writes more stories like the one about Judge Miller and keeps us all informed as to what is going on with a positive twist on it like that story.

All she does is report negative things....She wrote a story about a year ago that blew up in her face...If I were her I would be afraid someone would be after me as many people that she has slandered.

Slander is correct. Why does the Gazette keep a reporter who cannot even get the facts straight? I have been to events she has covered (sitting in the courtroom audience) where I did not even recognize as happening what she reported. Does anyone know whether she has access to information that a member of the audience sitting in the courtroom does not see or hear?
I know of cases that were dismissed that she never reported on. But you can be sure she reported that the people got arrested. Lots of fanfare in the arrest, but no coverage when the case was dismissed and the person was not only not guilty, but completely innocent. Maybe that is not newsworthy. That might make the cops look bad or tarnish the reputation of her buddies the prosecutors.
Go back and review her stories. When a jury found a person not guilty of what they were charged but guilty of a lesser offense, the jury was always criticized. Like the guy in the pickup and the motorcycle collision on I 30 in Miller County.
Like the couple who was spread all over the newspaper about abusing the horses whose cases were dismissed after being tried once and ending in a hung jury. Ever see anything about that? If there was anything, I can't find it. Certainly not on the front page of the paper.
Bias has no place in reporting the news. It ideally should be reported factually with no editorial comment or obvious prejudice. Hers is always for the prosecutor. Check it out.

This is the reason a lot of the liberal papers are going broke. The New York Times, one of the largest, is on the verge of bankruptcy. It is due to the lack of public confidence in the truth of their reporting. Them being extremely biased and liberal does not help their circulation either. People want you to report the news without a slant toward libs or conservatives.

You must now be speaking of Bowie county's best.
The one eye' d moron who will lie about children.
He will lie about their parents.
He can't write his stories any better than her.

He has his supervisers' tell him what he needs to write.
You bet stand up for them Prosecutors'.

Don't ever walk blind in the sticker patch bare footed.

I can thank Lonnie Johnson for teaching two children what a liar a law officer really is.
Bet she wouldn't write the real facts about this story when the proper time comes.
Lockhart tells them what they need to write. ;')
