David Wilson: Tabloid hit piece

Although I have great respect for the Pilot & Today as a newspaper, I am extremely disappointed that you chose to run the tabloid-like “hit” piece on Dr. D. When he ran for the School Board, he made no secret that he had strong concerns about the administration, including Donna Howell. His riff with the previous superintendent is also old news.

Therefore, your publication of private e-mails is not newsworthy, but is merely an attempt to smear and embarrass him. My guess is that if the Pilot & Today’s staff’s internal e-mails pertaining to Dr. D and Howell were published, one might also find some material that you or other staff members would find embarrassing or that would cast an unfavorable light on the paper and its motives. Would this fact make those e-mails newsworthy?
