Humiliating mistake

February 19, 2013

The Enterprise news staff made a big factual error in Saturday’s paper, which we truly regret and are, furthermore, ashamed o....

I wouldn't get too upset PC. The national media is full of distortions, propaganda and outright lies about things far more imporatant than who owned the property subject to foreclosure. All the American people expect from news media is entertainment and reinforcement of their own prejudices, in that order.

You would think that all the apologies that you have had to do lately and the corrections with misinformation that you would learn Pete, but you are so fast to put the story out there, that you do not care who you hurt in the process. Your sources sometimes leave little to be desired and they are just giving there version or opinion and you need to ask the person you are talking about what there side is. Two sides to every story. You seem to like only the one that is more juicy in your mind and will sell more papers. Who holds you accounable!!

Pete admitted the mistake, apologized, and moved on, we all need to as well.

Jessica Collier didn't do anything wrong. She has revealed the actual, real story here, which is: why would a supposedly reputable, financially solvent, sufficiently capitalized developer need to have such a tangled web of limited liability companies in order to move the "project" forward? Are these "shell" companies? What's their purpose? During Watergate how long do you think it took Woodward and Bernstein to unravel, through reported fact and then corrected fact, trial and error, the trail of money from some two-bit burglars to the President of the U.S.? And the finances of this supposedly fiscally solvent developer's lead man in the community are entirely relevant and should be reported on, in detail. The people of Tupper Lake have got to stop being self-deluded about this "project" and need to open their ears and eyes.

PC, you guys didn't do antying wrong. That's the problem with people today. WHen the news doesn't fit their twisted world view of "what-should-be" politics everyone cries your'e biased!

There's the "news" then there's "reality". Often times reality doesn't suit what people want to hear so a popular mechanism to deal with it is to ignore it or denounce it as biased. That's why fox snooze sells I suppose.

Wake up people! Honestly? The story was not factual. The marina property reported has absolutely nothing to do with the ACR project. It belongs to other individuals in the community. A journalist is expected to check the facts before reporting on it.

Fox News is the only news I watch. I am not a Limbaugh disciple or a Beck follower, it is just that Fox truly is fair and balanced. The others are leaning so far left it is sickening. If you watch Fox ONCE with an open mind, you'll see.

Ms Collier appears to be (increasingly) a large liability as a 'so called' reporter for the ADE. In your business, "factual" errors can't happen and if they do, 100% accountability consequence needs to happen! Wrong, completely WRONG property owners were targeted in the report to sensationalize (or attempt to do so) in the printed article. Can you say Slander?

Jessica Collier it is time for you to go! You call yourself a's time you did more than a little investigating on the the obligations of a GOOD reporter. To be very clear you have much to learn about your craft. There are two areas that you need much improvement in before you call yourself a reporter. First....get your facts correct! I don't know who or what you use for getting your facts, but more often than most you don't get it right! Second, good reporting comes from a reporter who is open to the facts, and doesn't make it personal.....that is your biggest failure!!! Wake up Enterprise, time to bring on a Real Reporter one who will give us the truth without their personal side of it!

LB, You must be kidding, "fair & balanced"? No major media outlet deserves that description. Fox leans at least as far to the right as does MSNBC to the left. All, right or left, espouse a multinational corporate & bankster friendly take on the news.

The reporter erred but it's pretty obvious from the comments who is making this 'personal".

I have enjoyed reading this newspaper for a very long time. Over the past few years I have found articals written by Jessica to be so far off base! When I read her columns, it is clear she does not enter into the passages with an open objective state of mind. What we get more often here is clearly one sided thinking, one sided feelings, and one sided writing. I am asking the adirondack Dailey to remove this reporter from her duties. It's time to give an honest truly open minded journalist the chance to bring to light the words that make up this paper. I remain for now a dedicated reader!

"We honestly thought it was, but it wasn't. It was a nearby property, owned by someone else." You were so intent on listing the ACR's name, how about telling us who is in default.

LB, you claim FAUX news is fair and balanced? FAUX news won a court case where is was determined that they were not required to tell the truth.

Fishcric, google "Fox wins lawsuit to misinform public."

Here is a quote from the story. Fox lawyers argued it was their first amendment right to report false information. In a six-page written decision, the Court of Appeals decided the FCC’s position against news distortion is only a “policy,” not a “law, rule, or regulation.”
