Using BS from former Hill County attorney Cindy Peterson as a basis for his information, reporter Timmy wrote a whole long exposé listing all the negative qualities of Lorang and Randolph and reiterated Peterson’s long list of “facts” that pointed to the logical choice of Gina Dahl as being the only qualified choice to this office. One fact Timmy missed was that former county attorney Cindy Peterson is now employed in the federal system as a federal employee who obviously just violated the Hatch Act with her glowing endorsement of Dahl. I wonder if Timmy is going to do an article about that also?
What a story! It is also quite apparent that the Havre Daily “News” is now competing with the blogs for newsworthy opinion pieces where they can spew their opinion laced articles designed to lead their readers to their point of view. Interestingly, that is the same thing we do here on this opinion laced Havre Daily Corrector blog although we never try to lead you to believe even for one millisecond that we are a “fair and balanced” news source and of course we do not charge you one cent for the pleasure of reading our opinions. To run this story in the Newspaper, and worse yet to run it above the fold, is a miscarriage of decent newspaper reporting ethics. Judging by the big money Lorang has been spending on political campaign advertisements in this same pitiful paper I would guess she was feeling a little gut-punched last night.
The real pain I feel after reading that tripe last night was that I had nearly came to the same conclusion as reporter Timmy (that in itself is nearly sickening) and was going to actually vote to retain Gina as she does indeed appear to be the best qualified for this position. However, Lorang has noticeably out-worked her opponents this campaign and Randolph does have the advantage of being an outsider to the current lackluster performances coming out of this county attorney’s office of which both Dahl and Lorang have had an active part.
Now I am at the “what to do- what to do” point again and will be holding my absentee ballot for a few more days as I ponder this new information. A very special thank you journalistic marvel Timmy Leeds for bringing these “facts” to the forefront for our reader’s comments
