Stop the Cyberbullying
Original post made by Susan Skagway, Atherton: other, on Oct 25, 2010
It is shocking and shameful that the Almanac News has allowed these posts to remain up, all the while deleting posts suggesting that police officers within the Atherton Police Department have engaged in criminal activity.
The Almanac News has applied a double standard in this matter. The conduct of the Almanac News is inexcusable. It is reprehensible.
What is good for the Atherton Police Department and the Department's employees (who are public figures) should be good for Mr. Buckheit who is a private citizen.
Favoritism is not journalism. Favoritism should not masquarade as fairness. Either take down the posts which intimate Buckheit has bought justice or leave the posts up expressing concern about the conduct of those employed by the Atherton Police Department up!
