More Cashman

Posted By on Tue, Jan 17, 2006 at 1:41 PM

Just read an editorial from Scott Monroe at the Stowe Reporter. He writes on their blog, 49 School Street, that the Cashman coverage is "bankrupt." He points to an AP story from Friday undercutting some of the assertions the press made about what Cashman said (or didn't say) to the victim's family.

Monroe: What's depressing, at least to me, is that politicians (includingnational talk-show ideologue Bill O'Reilly) were allowed to spin thestory, create myth, and the press let them run with it. "The press," bythe way, I think can fairly be described as the state's top dailynewspapers: the Burlington Free Press, and jointly the Times Argus andRutland Herald, via the Vermont Press Bureau.

This controversial topic was allowed to boil down to a "he said/she said" issue...

But this, I think, is the kicker:

Cashman, the Times Argus reports today, is among the top issues nowat the Statehouse. Interesting it's Cashman, not the state's criminalsentencing law, that's in the hot seat.

Incidentally, they don't have ANY comments on that post. Yet...

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
