Last month, when the autopsy results on Michelle O'Connell were released there was international news coverage but:
o One no-byline front page article on the O'Connell murder autopsy in The St. Augustine Record.
o No reprinting of the text of the autopsy.
o No acknowledgment of international news coverage, including the London Daily Mail.
o One paranoid, middle-of-the-night oppressive 750 word defamatory attacking press release from Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, printed word-for-word online in The St. Augustine Record, since removed from the Sheriff's website.
o No editorial or news analysis of the paranoid, middle-of-the-night oppressive 750 word paranoid, defamatory press release from Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, printed word-for-word online in The St. Augustine Record.
This is not journalism by The St. Augustine Record.
This is flummery, dupery and nincompoopery by The St. Augustine Record.
This is baby-talkikng Babbitry in The St. Augustine Record.
When Michelle O'Connell was murdered on September 2, 2010, The St. Augustine Record quoted unnamed sources, withput naming Michelle O'Connell or JEREMY BANKS, merely saying that a Sheriff's deputy's girlfriend committed suicide with his service weapon.
That's not journalism, it's stenography for the corrupt Sheriff in The St. Augustine Record.
Since November 24, 2013, we've seen more thorough coverage from television programs and New York and British newspapers than in our yokel hayseed newspaper, owned by MORRIS COMMUNICATIONS, which is not even trying to be thorough in investigating local corruption (of which it is enabler).
KATHY NELSON, then"Director of Audience and Editor," insulted three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Walt Bogdanich in The St. Augustine Record -- "no regrets," "parachuting in," "didn't make any friends" at the Sheriff's Department.
Certified fool KATHY NELSON was later fired.
What has changed?
Lincoln once told his execrable Union Army Civil War General George B. McClellan that "if you do not want to use the Army, I would like to borrow it for a time."
Would it be rude if I asked the same question of Morris Communications about The St. Augustine Record?
Might I borrow it, please, since you're not using it?
