TO THE EDITOR:
Re. “Riponite requests investigation after talk with mayor,” Jan. 21, You printed an article in the Commonwealth last week. Sadly, what you printed wasn’t an article. It did not deserve the front page. It didn’t even deserve space in the paper.
You pointed a finger based on the fictional musings of two people who claimed to be party to or heard this conversation. ...
Doesn’t what you printed smack more of conspiracy than anything remotely associated with factual information? Didn’t you place the cart ahead of the horse? Didn’t you assign guilt without due process?
In your zest to sell newspapers, you forgot the most important thing; check your facts and sources twice. ...
