The NS Can Not Get Anything Right These Days

Today, on the front page the News Sentinel tried to tie in some memories of Elvis in Knoxville to an Associated Press story. They got the dates of his Knoxville appearances wrong. Elvis appeared at Stokley Athletic Center on April 8, 1972 and May 20, 1977.

In addition in this article on Wednesday the paper identified Former Knox County Commissioner Scott Moore as a Realtor. In order to be a Realtor, you must attend classes, pass an exam and join the local Board of Realtors. Mr. Moore is not listed as a Realtor with the State of Tennessee, which means he does not hold a license as a Realtor and he is not listed as a member of the local Board of Realtors. Mr. Moore does own rental properties. However, on January 6, 2010 he was not a Realtor as the newspaper said that he was.

The News Sentinel under the direction of Editor Jack McElroy appears to continue to fabricate, mislead or carelessly author stories with errors on a daily basis. When will E.W. Scripps restore integrity to the Editorial/News department at the Big Metal Shed on the Hill?

I think that publication must be suspended.
Erroneous stories are serious fault, especially with the real estate business, in this case a realtor, where big money is invested.
