Can Woodward & Bernstein Help With Fort Worth's Quest To Have A Real Newspaper?
You can find the link to the Star-Telegram editorial by going to the Star-Telegraph posting titled One step forward and two steps back.
A few days ago I blogged about the TRWD Private Deer Hunting Preserve & Lodge on public land issue in a post titled Who Is Covering Up Who Stayed In The TRWD Hunting Preserve's Cabin?
In the Who Is Covering Up Who Stayed In The TRWD Hunting Preserve's Cabin? post I verbalized my perplexation over the fact that the log book in the TRWD's Hunting Preserve's cabin clearly says that everyone must sign in to the log book.
Yet all the pages were blank.
I asked what possible reason could there be for there being no names in the log book, opining that the logical explanation, to me, was that names in that log book did not match with the type people who the TRWD claimed were the sole users of the cabin, and so, to cover up that indiscretion, the log book was purged before the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reporter and the People's TRWD Board Member, Mary Kelleher, could see it.
Now, the Star-Telegram is telling us there is nothing to see here, regarding the TRWD Private Deer Hunting Preserve on public land.
In the Star-Telegraph's posting on this subject, mention is made of the dire need in Fort Worth for a real daily newspaper, rather than the pseudo newspaper the town is now ill-served by.
Ponder with me, what if, during the Watergate investigations the Washington Post's Woodward and Bernstein discovered Nixon was operating a Deer Hunting Preserve & Lodge, on public land, for his private use. With Nixon claiming this was a totally appropriate perk for administration employees.
If Woodward & Bernstein visited Nixon's cabin and saw a log book, which everyone was advised to sign in to, and discovered all the pages were blank, do you think that real newspaper known as the Washington Post would editorialize that there was nothing to see here?
Or would the Washington Post editorialize that Nixon needs to release the names of who was in that cabin's log book?
It really is a sad thing when a town's only daily newspaper helps the powers that be perpetuate a cover up, rather than try to find out what is being covered up.
Sorry, Fort Worth Star-Telegram. You are wrong. There is something to see here. You just don't have the investigative integrity to find it.
Are Woodward & Bernstein available?????
