You can call it a storm in a teapot if you wish, and others have made that mistake to
find themselves under more scrutinity than they cared for. I don't make light of the
integrety of the press, and I fully expect integrerty. I'll review the article
later for it's honesty, and if it's a simply dishonest canned news of MS
lies, we'll handle it later in the week. If it seems to be just a poor understanding
of the fact, we'll handle that. It it is an honest report. We'll also report that.
We will make apropriate judgements and take necessary activities as your reportings
intgrety deserves. Nothing more....
whether you like being called dishonest or not....is not my concern.
You impact on public perception and the ability to report facts acurately
and without bias is.
BTW - I'm ccing this to a few other concerned parties.
