White Harvests O'Hare's Brain
I was shocked when I saw Bill White's Column on reassessment. It simply was a combination of O'Hare's post about Cunningham outsmarting the Commissioners, and the comments that followed. Even White's title appeared borrowed. O'Hare labeled his post of Thursday, February 9th as Cunningham Strikes Out on Reassessment. Or did He? Bill White's copy, which appeared on Saturday the 11th, was called In Lehigh County reassessment battle, did Don Cunningham really lose? In the past, when I took the newspaper to task for not giving me proper attribution on a story I broke, Bill White defended the paper's practice. He said that if the paper independently verifies all the facts, it can use the news without attribution. Apparently, his threshold for using someone else's opinion is even lower.
