I had decided to join the LRC subscribers club but I'm re-thinking after thus piece. Do I want to support journalism based on one party's account and barroom hearsay?
Gault is usually very good, but he's dropped the ball as a journalist here and he's basically writing as a fan. He hasn't waited to weigh the AIU evidence, he's taken the story of Houlihan's team and decided to believe it. Imagine judging a case in a court based on only one sides evidence.
LRC has seriously screwed the journalistic pooch here and descended into Fox News territory
So you only listen to media that you 100% agree with. I think that's a big problem. I purposely subscribe to the NY Times and Rush Limbaugh at the same time so I can get both sides. I don't want to be siloes.
Jonathan presented his take on it. It doesn't mean he's right. And i'm going to rib him for it on the podcast tomorrow.
Yes, he's writing a column. It's his opinion. that's why we labeled it as such. We clearly labeled it as column/opinion:
The one thing I'm certain of is no one knows 100% what happened. He specifically says we need to hear from the other side. But what do you want him to do, not have an opinion while we wait for the other side to actually issue their reasoning? The same side that was delaying charging for her 3+ months. That's absurd.
