Today, I owe someone an apology, and I need your help to share this message…please share this on any social media platforms you can.
Most of you have read my Facebook post from last night on my disappointment with GTN News over a teaser headline. In the expression of my disappointment, I purposely did not name the reporter…because I was certain those were not her words, and I did not want her to take any blame. I was right. They weren’t her words, or thoughts on the subject.
But, by the way this world works… reporter Angie Angers got all of the blame from my friends, co-workers and others. I never made the connection that my words..while generic to the station would have caused her such grief. Angie’s story was completely pro-police and explained the situation as perfectly as possible. Sadly, she was not responsible for the teaser that I attacked.
Angie has been through a lot during this situation, mostly caused by my post. She did nothing wrong and my initial posting yesterday was not directing anger or disappointment with her personally. I urge you to watch her video package linked below that shows how well Angie reported on the story.
To summarize: Angie wasn’t responsible for the teaser. Her story is very well done. She even fought against the teaser…which is why it got deleted. Twice.
Angie – as I told you in person…I never thought my generic rant would end up causing you personal grief. I’m terribly sorry that’s how it played out.
