When you’re wrong, you’re wrong

It is never a journalist’s intention to misquote any person. Any good journalist strives for getting the facts right as well as getting the words that someone spoke correct. While I’ll will be the first to admit that I am not perfect, when I make a mistake, I will do whatever I can to correct it and make it right.

Recently, I wrote a piece about the Criminal Justice Task Force and the ‘true cost’ of jail operations. Though the facts of the story remain accurate, Task Force chairman Paul Hall is misquoted. He did not say the Sheriff and FOP will not work with the task force. When I went back to listen to the audio I found a word was left out, and I offer my sincerest apologies to Mr. Hall. He did say ‘IF the new Sheriff and Union…” won’t work with the Task Force than nothing can be accomplished.

Sometimes the smallest of words can have the biggest of impacts. As the FOP has stated, Dwayne Wenninger is Sheriff and until a November election and swearing in during 2017, that remains the fact. While the Criminal Justice Task Force has my full support, I hope Mr. Hall knows I had no intention of leaving out a word while quoting him. But the facts to do remain that it does cost the County over $140 per inmate per day and needs to be addressed.

I know I am not perfect, but I do as best I can to report accurately, when I am wrong I admit it. In this instance, I was wrong. I look forward to covering the Task Force as it develops and look forward to keeping the public informed about issues effecting the county as best as I can.
