  • AFTERNOON UPDATE ** – * CONFLICTS EVERYWHERE!

    Posted on March 15th, 2018 Becky 2 comments
    —   Just a reminder that Cassidy and the editorial board had the unbelievable audacity and hypocrisy to publish this on August 31, 2016 (click here):
         Still, there’s a rule of journalistic ethics that we think ought to apply to government officials, too: Avoid not just conflicts of interest, but the appearance of conflicts of interest. Because in the public’s eye, they’re all the same.

     

    ** Doing some research this afternoon. LIP News will return tomorrow.

    MORALLY DEFICIENT!

    *    When LNP and the Caucus began running their articles about state Representative Nick Miccarelli, I sent the below email to Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Angela Couloumbis who is also being credited in all the articles (the link in the screenshot of the email is here):

         Today, I am sending her and the members of the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association the below post (click here for the original of “A TERRIBLY, LYING START…”). I believe that decent editors and reporters find it hard to believe that other supposed editors and reporters can lie like this and be this morally deficient and unethical and disgrace journalism in this manner. And I will continue to let them know that sadly LNP is exactly that and should be thrown out of legitimate news organizations and associations.

    PATTERSON: FLAT-OUT LIAR!

          Randy Patterson, city director of economic development and neighborhood revitalization, said the state CRIZ law has strict disclosure requirements regarding conflicts.
    From the LNP article, “Councilwoman urges broader representation on city boards, commissions,” (click here).     
         Patterson (pictured left) is a flat-out liar. Thomas Baldrige voted to give his wife’s then employer, LNP, millions of dollars in CRIZ money for their for-profit, off the tax-rolls Marriott Hotel expansion. That is as clear a conflict of interest as you can get!
         But of course, LNP, the recipient of the money, doesn’t tell the public that! Where’s your journalism code of ethics, LNP?
    Please check back later today.

    1. Of course they wouldn’t want any of the “unwashed masses” to dig too deeply into their corrupt dealings. Keep the same old same old rubber stampers in power. If you have to lie, hey, you have to lie.

    2. I was also thinking, can you even imagine how things would be so different had Ressler won?
