TERRY COHEN DOES TOUR DE FORCE TATTOO ON THE DAILY TIMES
If you did not attend or watch last night's meeting of the Salisbury City Council, let me explain why Greg Bassett's butt must be raw and aching today. In an unemotional and articulate statement - interrupted at one point by Laura Mitchell - Ms. Cohen set the record straight about the outrageous manner in which the Gannett Daily Times has misrepresented if not deliberately distorted her comments in regard to Ireton's plan for downtown.
Because we will try to post an audio or video of her remarks, I won't quote from them. In complete detail, she discussed the erroneous quotations attributed to her as well as the ridiculous and false assertions by Ireton.
As another speaker pointed out in the public comment portion of the meeting, the Daily Times has now abandoned any remaining vestige of journalistic objectivity and become a highly partisan and dangerous “player” in Salisbury politics with this latest blatent editorial effort to smear Ms. Cohen and the other majority members of the Council.
Kudos to Ms. Cohen for giving the Daily Times a well deserved public thrashing.
