When did The Oregonian become a real newspaper, like we had in the olden days where the reporters would, y’know, report the news without “balancing” it with a fake opposing viewpoint?
Now, with all the excellent coverage of Dave Boyer’s early resignation from the county.
Because the Boregonian only allows access to their articles on the web for 14 days, I’ve saved and archived them all as PDFs.
- 13 March 2006 – “County finance chief takes his leave early”
- 15 March 2006 – “Linn denies pressing finance chief”
- 16 March 2006 – “Forced out by the ongoing feud” (editorial)
- 17 March 2006 – “Financial chief asks county for severance pay”
- 24 March 2006 – “Emails script clashes between finance chief, Linn’s top aides”
- 25 March 2006 – “Finance officer said ‘no’ to spinning numbers” (editorial)
But, maybe it’s just because The Big O has decided that Diane Linn, Multnomah County Chair, has got to go?
I do notice, however, that the Boregonian has been silent on Dave Boyer’s other accusation – of differential treatment for line staff, managers, and executives?
Damn, I’d like to bring that to their attention. I just wish I could think of some examples of that bias. Oh, well, I’ve got to go; I need to talk to a co-worker who testified against Jann Brown and is getting laid off… after interviewing for a new position on a panel that, completely coincidentally, included Jann Brown…
Update 28 March 2006 – I have added the link and the PDF of The Oregonian’s front-page article detailing the internal battles between Dave Boyer and other managers at the county. Interesting read, and I completely forgot to include it earlier. My bad.
