Local Papers…..The Pelican

The Pelican…7/25/08

Re-miss in all of

last week’s edition coverage…

OH THE EDITORS!….

What was with the editors of the local newspapers last week?…

Commissioner Dodd…not only had the “Scorched Earth Edition” of the BTSTimes….

He had the editor of the Pelican…way off the mark!…

How could Ms Siren possibly take a partial quote …made to her paper’s reporter Ms Vik…and misconstrue it beyond anyone’s comprehension?….

Commissioner Dodd spoke to Ms Vik…as the issue of the LBTS doggy beach as it was about to be scrapped….

He told her of a remark made by a neighbor…of his…

That people are more emotional about dogs than about the homeless….

The quote…again …not in its entirety….and again originated by a constituent….

“We don’t seem to worry about the homeless and what they’re doing to the beach. Dogs create so much emotion.”…

So how in the world does the editor deduce….the following…

Commissioner Dodd is saying homeless people have no emotions?…

Further implying the Commissioner compared the homeless themselves to dogs?…

Really Ms Siren…you and BTSTimes Editor MacMillan seem to have more in common than changing what your reporters write…by taking your reporters work….and skewing it in such a outlandish manner….

Take another look…an apology should be forthcoming….

from at least one of the editor competitors!….
