Re: “Moving Mountains

While I am grateful for further insight into this case, Eric Francis’ journalistic approach is disappointing. I am an avid reader of his horoscopes and Planet Waves articles, and this diversion from astrological insights into local land debates is striking.

Francis’ bias becomes evident as the article reads on, until it culminates with a sarcastic innuendo. Frankly, I am less concerned with the outcome of the case than with Francis’ slanted journalism. It is rife with conjecture and smacks of cronyism. I question his motivation more than I wonder who the land belongs to.

The purpose of investigative journalism is to lay out the facts so that educated readers may deduce their own conclusions. Francis, however, seems to have his own agenda. The article reads like an homage to great heroes winning a war against evil. Perhaps this is how the story unravelled, but it is Francis, not the facts, who make it read this way.

For my part, I am insulted that the author so proudly asserts his assumptions (Mohonk's repeated "pretending," for instance). Perhaps he should have a little more faith that his readers can draw their own conclusions.
Otherwise, he should stick to the horoscopes.
