On Facebook, readers are responding to attorney Steve Munkelt’s “Other Voices” directed at The Union publisher Jim Hemig’s column about the Lamphier case. “In response to Jim Hemig’s column, if you want to know why one of my cases has been continued, please just call me and ask. I think that used to be called ‘fact checking’ in journalism school,” it begins.
Eleanore Mac Donald: The Union — don’t get me started. Small town, backwoods rag, non-journalism.
Bruce Levy: The Union is a bad joke, and has been for years.
Bert Wheeler: The Union is an embarrassment.
CiCi Stewart: The blatantly obvious question is why would the publisher for our local paper print an article questioning attorney Stephen Munkelt without a conversation or discussion with him to get the facts. I’m appalled.
Carla Bonetti: The level of incompetence in this county is horrific.
Mike Thornton: Obviously two different types of cases and people. But I remember when The Union went after supervisor Bruce Conklin, alleging all types of financial improprieties. Of course, this all took place right before an election and once Bruce lost, the paper never mentioned any of it again. So, in short, this is nothing new for The Union.
