Missing woman found dead in Columbia River in HR April 25, 2017
Man flees police in HR, falls to death from cliff April 25, 2017
I'm am truly disappointed with the writer, editors, and publisher for not practicing due diligence or sound journalistic practices in protecting the privacy of crime victims. I imagine the writer is inexperienced for an experienced writer would not even consider putting such details in a story. I can't believe the editor was so inattentive to let that information stay in copy and go to press. I further suspect that in-house training of privacy protection procedure probably hasn't been conducted recently so top management should share the blame in this fiasco as well.
In my opinion, a shabby "mia culpa" article just doesn't satisfactorily remedy the harm done by this violation of privacy and further undermines public trust and confidence in The Hood River News. I hope some "mia culpa" compensation is being considered to demonstrate The Hood River News' true contriteness for its negligent failing.
Thank you Hood River News &KN-R for an excellent story!
Many folks have asked me to publish or recite my poetry entry, "Haiku on Bacon", so here'tis:
Limp fat pig flesh strips
Flame tickled, sizzled & shrunk
Man!, mere mortals, drool
