Weigh in on fair/biased reporting
June 7, 2011 - Jessica Collier
Much has been made over the years about media bias in reporting on the ACR. We've regularly seen people try to discredit reports of potential issues with the project, as well as potential benefits of the project, with, "Oh, he's just an ACR cheerleader," or, "Oh, he's just a tree-hugger."
Dave Gibson, co-chair of Adirondack Wild, one of the more radical green groups, posted this commentary on the local blog Adirondack Almanack on Monday.
This may be a bad idea, but I'm inviting you to comment here on this. I seriously want to hear your opinions. Do you agree with Gibson's assertions about the local coverage of the hearings? Do you disagree? Why? Do you see bias in my reporting? What about other people's? Please avoid blatant attacks and give me arguments with supporting evidence.
For the record, I've blogged before about things that influence my opinions on the resort, but I believe my only real bias is towards allowing unfettered access to information. That's been an issue at times throughout the ACR process.
Something I've been meaning to mention about comments: I realized the other day that when you navigate through the blog using my "next post" and "previous post" links, the ADE site often logs you out if you are signed in, and once you do sign in, you are brought to your profile screen and not to the post you wanted to comment on. That's annoying. The best way to deal with it is note the post title when you're in the post, log in, go to the main blog screen and chose the post title from the list, rather than navigating through the links. It's a huge pain, but once again, it's what we have to work with.
