MY NOT-SO-EXCELLENT ADVENTURE IN JOURNALISTIC INTEGRITY

A couple of weeks ago I sent a letter with supporting documentation to the publisher of a local (and mercifully low-circulation) tabloid, the Colorado Springs Business Journal, pointing out material errors in its reporting on my views and activities when I served on a local citizens commission charged with determining the fate of city-owned Memorial Hospital. I never heard back from him, but did exchange subsequent emails and phone calls with his editor, Allen Greenberg, resulting in his agreement to make limited corrections of some of the more blatant misstatements in reporter Amy Gillentine’s article. Nonetheless, the original, uncorrected article remains on the paper’s website, and my Google search of the promised language fails to find it anywhere. Unsurprisingly, I don’t read the paper itself, so missed any printed notice that may have appeared.
