To find it, you have to read through a wash of unsourced innuendo such as:
Mayor Kasim Reed--who one source told APN is estranged from Franklin--is also not a fan of Glover.And:
Then, late last week, another source--a Buckhead source--also said they were expecting Glover to resign within the next few days.A Buckhead source! Well that must make it credible!
But even if you can look past the bizarre writing (Buckhead!) and the side swipes based on the unverified, does someone who in the past has said he wouldn't bother allowing the other side to give their point of view realy merit a "good story" atta boy?
And I don't know if the fact that he doesn't care is worse than he admits to being lazy..
Cardinale in response to his sloppy reporting on Kasim Reed in 2009, "I've been doing this (APN) now for 4 years and usually have a good idea of when a PR department is going to respond, and when they aren't. So, I just didn't want to waste my time, nor my readers' time"It takes about five seconds to discover just how much Cardinale respects journalism.
Once upon a time that attitude would have resulted in a shunning. Now, it gets a hearty pat on the back.
ADDENDUM: Just seconds after I publish, Creative Loafing's Thomas Wheatley publishes a story that indicates Reed may have pushed Glover out. Well, of course that makes a difference right? Absolutely. The difference is in Wheatley's last sentence.
We asked Mayor Kasim Reed's office why he and board members he appointed would like to see a change in leadership, as the AHA statement says. "We have no comment," replied a spokeswoman.Because that's what the writer of a "good story" actually does.
