Signing off, sort of

Well, kids, since the CHCA executive committee has cited my blogging as one example of Pete's "substandard" management, I'm going to stop writing about the CHCA on here. I'm doing it out of respect for Pete, not for the executive committee. For the record, I never thought my blogging interfered with my fairness as a reporter. In fact, it has made me extra cautious about what I write for the paper.

By the way, my professionalism has been questioned since I came to the Local, but it had little to do with my training or past performance as a journalist. Within three days of my start date, two CHCA employees and one board member accused me of biased and inaccurate reporting of the state attorney general's investigation of the CHCA and the community fund. I had read very little about CHCA politics before coming to the paper and nothing about the investigation. Nonetheless, I was slandered.

I will have my master's of journalism degree from Temple University in May, by the way. My cumulative GPA is a 3.96. My head is hardly up my own ass, but I know what I'm doing. I fully encourage the executive committee to call my professors and ask them what they think of my work.

To those of you outside the classroom who think I'm doing a good job: thank you. The main reason I can motivate myself to write despite all of the drama and anxiety is because I want to give readers a reason to pick up the paper.

Anyway, I will continue to write for the blog, but in a different capacity. Until then, enjoy this:
