I recently caught my local news and saw what could be dubbed a “hit piece” on the local film commissioner, who I know personally. While I do not consider us to be close friends, I do know him to be a stand-up guy. So, when the local TV watchdog decided to raise eyebrows by suggesting that he was on the take, I wrote him a letter. I sent it to his email, copied his boss, copied everybody that was mentioned in the letter and then posted that letter on two Facebook posts in response to the posts that contained the original news clips. Plus, I copied it into the comment section on the channel’s website. Wanted to make sure nobody missed it. Sure, it’s spammy, but that’s how I get my point across. If you don’t see it right off the bat, maybe you will later.
Anyway – Here are links to the three videos and news articles that got me riled up enough write a strongly worded letter to the editor.
I had only seen the second video and was writing my response when I went back to review and found the first video and the last one. Once the reporter got a State Representative involved, I made a note of copying him, too.
I hope they learn something from this.
