Default How ticked would you be?

This Deer is a little ticked at a local reporter who covers county meetings. I have been "quoted" twice from video she is watching incorrectly. The 1st time was OK in that it direct 'quoted' a similar sentiment, even though my actual comment was pretty well formed to communicate a slightly different point.

This last time she only quoted one word and couched it in a context in polar opposition to my position on the subject. Like if you said "I love the game of baseball, but I think the ghost runner should be banned." And the news story said: Deertick hates baseball and thinks it should be "banned".

I wrote her a nice note asking for maybe an edit to accurately reflect my statement. Her reply:

I thought your word for what that will bring to your situation worked in the context with other community comments included specifying various aspects of the lifestyle change that growth brings.

It can be challenging at times to find that balance between summarizing the many aspects of these changes that impact people's lives without getting too bogged down on specifics.


AITA? (on this and ONLY this?)

She has her own agenda and twisted your words to further it.

Same thing happened to me once when I sent a comment to the editor of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. It was 4 short paragraphs. The first 3 were a set-up, and the fourth made it clear I was being facetious. They printed my letter, omitting the final paragraph, making it seem I was in support of something I was clearly against.

Can you write a polite letter to this reporter's bosses, informing them what she did? Reporting needs to be fair and even-handed.

Not worth your further ink on the matter. Move on to something else.

I really hate reporters as they only seem to report what they want for their own agenda even if its a lie. And you can quote me on that.

It appears PhilliesFan likes to spread misinformation because he "hate[s] reporters." In his own words, he has his "own agenda" admitting that when he speaks "its a lie." He is so brazen, he even challenged this reporter to "quote me [him] on that."

Honestly, I don't think it is an agenda, just sloppy/lazy reporting. It would have been fine if she didn't attribute the notion to me; it fairly described some other comments. But I was representing the interests of quite a few other community members who couldn't attend an early afternoon 5-8 hr meeting, and the article came out before they had the chance to see the replay. I had to put out some fires with people who trusted me, and had to explain on some social media groups that I DON'T want to ban baseball!

FWIW, she is an older reporter that is stuck watching 7 hr meetings in a County that USED to be a podunk backwoods. On a positive note, the recording IS an official record so I can always point to that.

"Submissions may be edited for length." LOL. I'd be upset that something that you took time to 'create' got hacked into bits. Like making a beautiful cake and the delivery guy sits on it. Only you know what it looked like originally.

And I may contact the paper, only because her response clearly admits she used some jacked up conceit.

Philliesfan acknowledges reporters' objectivity noting that "reporters . . . they only seem to report."

Default How ticked?

Deer- I like the idea of contacting her boss and providing a clear explanation
of her "mistakes". One time could have been sloppy work, a second time with
her fluff-off response indicates she needs fixed; after all, it's you she is

I sent a gently scolding email to the editor about her reply, explaining my concerns of her use of my name whilst summarizing instead of 'Some residents'. And when she quotes, whether paraphrasing or directly, it should be accurate. "Deertick said (bullshit, bullshit, bullshit)" when her intention was clearly to summarize others statements is breaking a basic tenet of journalism. The fact that she quoted one word I said doesn't negate the context she presented.

I did present it more as a heads-up instead of a demand for action, so we'll see if there is a reply.
