Good Morning & Happy Thursday “Bob” of “Omaha World-Herald”.
I was reading the “story” about Omaha being a Bicycle Friendly Community(http://www.omaha.com/article/20110929/LIVEWELL02/709299906#omaha-joins-ranks-of-bike-friendly). I noticed that you had quotes around Bicycle Friendly Community. Just this morning when I got on Metro Route 55 Millard I brought my bike on the bus. Because I’m biking home in Omaha after work.
What was your intent on putting the quotes around Bicycle Friendly Community?
I don’t get paid to be a journalist, but I’ve been published a few times & I do have a blog. But I am set aghast at your use of the quotations!
“Bob” is on my ‘I am a poor journalist’ list. There’s not an actually list, but if there was he’d be on it.
To appear fair & balance, I’m NOT!
Bob responded that
It’s to note the title of the designation. There was no editorial comment intended.
I still don’t like the implication & I know there is at least one more person out there who may not like it as well.
