Regarding Brian Knox’s Editorial:
Knox states, “communication is a two-way street.” Yes, it is; but newspapers are in the business of digging out the story. If I was in a horrendous car wreck, does the Messenger expect me to call them? It is the job for the newspaper to find the information, not the other way around.
Blaming a party for not giving you information is just an excuse of laziness. The WCM tracked down the information from the Texas Ranger. The WCM sent a photographer to take the photos in Boonsville. Did the WCM get too lazy to travel 2 blocks to the attorney’s office? It is up to the WCM to get the information. It’s called JOURNALISM.
I do not know Terry Ross. I know of his attorney, Barry Green. Most people now know how to use the internet for research. I am assuming that the WCM is aware of this because I subscribe to their on-line edition. If you search the name of the attorney, you will obtain their website. If the address & phone number matches the number that you were calling, then YES, it is their offical website. It is not an unconfirmed source.
I suspect that there is something more happening over at the WCM. Is there a feud with Green? Whatever the story, the blame-game makes the WCM look less than professional.
