'Chronicle' Biased Against Public-Access Television
Postmarks  February 7, 2008
"...Dear Editor, The article "Tempest in the PACT Teapot" [News, Feb. 8], by Wells Dunbar, is biased. First, the public-access television producers are branded "wild, woolly," "restless," and "rambunctious." Their words are nothing more than "vitriol" and "gripes." Alex Jones is labeled a "mascot … invariably blowing hot air." On the other hand, Public Access Community Television General Manager Garry Wilkison and Executive Director Linda Litowsky are described in neutral terms, except Litowsky's actions are described with the euphemism "unorthodox." Second, Wells Dunbar confuses the concepts of "request" and "demand." The article says, "Papatonis, via e-mail, demanded to know why his show never aired." And it says, "Citing the possibility of litigation, Litowsky declined to discuss her request for an apology." Actually, Papatonis did not "demand" to know why his show never aired..."
