Letters to Charlie Gibson
A 500 character letter to Charlie Gibson, inspired by Jim Treacher’s much wittier effort:
Thank you for attempting to expand my definition of journalism during your interview with Sarah Palin. I was not aware that deliberate distortion and misrepresentation were acceptable practice in your field.
I’m sure you and your editing team appreciated the opportunity to do your jobs unencumbered by professional ethics. Principles can be so limiting to a journalist’s creativity.
By the way, your credibility called: it won’t be coming home. Ever.
Good luck in your new career.
