Four days out from Janell Ross's hit piece on North End crime and race relations, and still no acknowledgement at the Tennessean of protest letters sent their way. If they're going to stand by their reporter the least they could do is reply to the Salemtown association president's letter. Their silence leaves me wondering if they realize that they don't have a leg to stand on to defend their loose-cannon reporter, who seems to put words in the mouths of so-called "plagued" Metro Police.
And speaking of Ross, she still has not replied to a letter I sent to her. I'm as impressed with her fortitude as I am with her journalist's objectivity.
