Just Creating a Buzz

As usual, the truth is somewhere in between. I am not going to comment on Squaw because I expect a ski resort to spin the story as suits its business. But a journalist source (I’m not sure why Moonshine objects to the term “newspaper”) should be fair and unbiased and Moonshine, you simply were not. I’m not saying this was fake news but you spun the headline to create a buzz. In your more recent article about this controversy, you state, “The report said the violations were unrelated to the accident.” You never said this in the original article and you have to be willfully ignoring your own press to think that the headline and first paragraphs of your story did not create the impression of a link between the violations and the accident. Shame on you.
