Maybe not include the Mayor's quote at all. The Mayor of a podunk town is just some random guy with an agenda that was clearly wrong. But it was fun for the "journalist" to get his little dig in at the enemy.So the article was biased because they did not caveat the mayor quote? Should they have just caveated his quote or in the spirit of fairness. should they have caveated the directors quote too?
And we know that the "journalist community" supports these off the wall comments because they are chose not to roast this Mayor for his clearly ideologically incendiary comment right after a tragedy. Do you think that if a conservative Mayor had called it a "murderous lover's spat" he would have gotten his quote in the paper without the loaded words the AP chooses? We all know that "conservative Mayor" would have been roasted by the MSM but that type of quote is just the opposite side of the political coin.
What amazes me is that this was clearly bad behavior by the Mayor and the "journalist" but people still won't hold them accountable.
