Wow THC fans! Your homegrown hero’s and Mikes Hard Lemonade aficionados finally got some long overdue recognition from our local “mainstream” media. After our comment yesterday pointing out the Unions failure to follow journalistic protocol by giving credit to a story’s originator guess what happened? The Unions co-owner, Jack Durham, a well-known supporter of all things left leaning actually did the right thing and changed up his article to deftly insert a few words in our direction.
From The Mad River Union:
“The email was first made public yesterday on The Humboldt Confidential, an anonymous blog.” (emphasis added!)
Of course there was no mention of this correction or the original oversight but hey, we’ll take what we can get. Thanks Jack!
This correction had to hurt since Mosher and her various causes have been long time recipients of Mad River Union editorial support and bias.
We wonder if The Union will be following up on any of the “scurrilous libel” statements made by Ms. Mosher and quoted in The Mad River Union? We know that if we were lied to as flagrantly as was Jack Durham and his publication we’d be hopping mad and would print some pretty serious editorials on the subject.
Among the most serious of these is the following statement by Mosher taken directly from the pages of the Mad River Union:
“However, Hilary Mosher, chair of the Humboldt Mobilehome Owners Coalition, flatly denies having written the email. “I will not dignify this scurrilous libel with a response,” Mosher stated in an email to the Union.” (emphasis again added)
We assume that Mosher no longer intends to stand by this quote. The curious want to know what The Mad River Union will do to discourage being lied to in the future?
