Oklahoma Gazette claims 'Journalistic Standards' but does not retract unverifiable quote
Saturday I posted a letter to the editor that I emailed to the Oklahoma Gazette, The Next mini Rathergate? Duffegate? On Monday, Rob Collins the Editor of the Gazette called me. I posted about that phone conversation Oklahoma Gazette Editor Rob Collins contacts Wild Bill. Mr. Collins seemed more interested in getting my personal information than printing my letter or correcting the error in their publication.
Today I picked up the new issue of the Gazette and thumbed through it looking for a retraction. Nope, no luck. What I found funny was an article by Paul Bouchereau A lapse in judgment. This story talks about Rathergate and journalistic credibility. So I surfed over to dustbury.com to see if he had read the article. To my amazement, he did and he had a post about it, A Rather predictable prediction. I just had to comment on this post. Here is what I wrote:
I think I will email this post to Rob Collins at the Gazette and see if he has anything to add or maybe he might have a job for me.
