DAILY HERALD January 9, 2002
Headline put positive spin on farcical
I was amazed to read your Dec. 21
headline, "Gun investigation called a success despite criticisms" over the
story about Jim Ryan's program to sting Internet gun dealers.
Your headline calls the program a
success, when every report I have seen either suggests the attorney general
was out of his element in this operation, or the attorney general's office
went as far as breaking the law in an attempt to entrap innocent gun
How can you call this farce a success
in the headline?
I have a great deal of respect for the
Daily Herald, but the only answer I can come to concerning this fiasco is to
surmise someone at the Daily Herald is playing political favoritism in the
Republican gubernatorial race.
Please check into this. It really
makes the Daily Herald look bad.
