The E.W. Scripps owned Shopper publication has a contract writer whose name is synonmous with a product that produces gas. Anyway. If you read her column this past week. It was about Sixth District State Senate Candidate Victoria DeFreese. Overall, a good story. The only problem is the only source the gaseous one used was DeFreese Facebook postings. I mean that's ok and all. But how hard would it have been to also call up the candidate and interview her? Really!? I mean being a journalist ain't that hard. I have been doing it as a hobby since 2004. I mean come on, pick up the phone.
