Hmmm! interesting comment in your news story. You wrote “Clinton County Health Department Director Rodney Wann announced Wednesday that Clinton County has suffered its 10th death related to the COVID-19 pandemic” I am interested in why you wrote “RELATED” instead of “caused by”, “as a result of” or even “a result of” and “no Blacks deaths in Clinton County are caused by Covid-19” Back in my day it was proper to print ONLY THE FACTS and let the reader form their own opinion. My comments may have a smart alleki style. No jab intended towards you Ken, just an even toned question of your word selection. I wouldnt want your job, I would probably be a poor performer and miss deadlines. Have I ever had a job like yours to base my comments on? Yes! I was a Propaganda Specialist with US Army Psychological Operations. What we couldnt publish with facts, we created information.
We agree. Words matter. When it comes to things like this, we usually post verbatim from the source so there is no confusion.-Kevin Keith
