We got this email about 5:15 this morning and the Register has more details here.Â But read on, because there’s a complaint that verbage related to our coverage of this strike was inserted into a letter to the editor at the OC Register.Â Now the Register does have a right to “edit” Letters to the Editor for brevity, (but anyone who reads them regularly knows accuracy is quite another issue).Â We’ll contact the Register once to get to the bottom of this.
“It looks like a tentative agreement has been reached. we’re back in the classrooms today! I’ll know more when I get to take a close look at it, but we’re going into work. I’m sure its not a total victory, but after three days of striking, I suspect the board didn’t want to deal with any more angry parents!
Thank you again for your support.
By the way, youÂ may wish to call the OC Register on something. One of our teachers sent in a letter to the editor about the strike to them.
They put it up, but then inserted the words, “according to the OC Liberal.” she was right ticked. I suspect that was done to “liberalize” her letter. Here’s what she wrote to us: “Okay, so last night I forwarded to everybody a letter that I had written to the OC Register regarding the OC GOP Central Committee resolution denouncing the current recall movement.Â So, about 30 minutes ago I decided to go to the OCRegister.com to see if they had put my letter on line.Â And there it was, in the Opinion section, along with other letters about the strike.Â
But get this, the words “according to theliberaloc.com” have been inserted into my letter in the sentence where I mention that Tony and Jennifer Beall received a financial settlement from the current CUSD Board.Â The OC Register actually edited my letter in a way that would reduce its credibility in the eyes of their conservative readership.Â
They could have cited their very own article published on September 29, 2009, where they reported the Bealls’ financial settlement, but I guess that wouldn’t have had the same effect.”
Â Interesting development for sure.
