In his column on Monday, The Union’s weekly columnist “Bored Georgeman” takes a swipe at the Nevada County Economic Resource Council for going “all in” on virtual and augmented reality.
But instead of interviewing the NCERC’s executive director Jon Gregory himself, Boardman borrows a quote from the NCERC leader in a Sacramento Bee interview. Boardman writes: “We wanted to pick a niche that was authentic and legitimate to our efforts,’ he told The Sacramento Bee.”
How come Boardman didn’t pick up the telephone and interview Gregory himself to answer the skeptical questions he poses about the initiative? It’s a small town.
The new publisher of The Union starts this week, and his first action ought to be to replace George Boardman’s column with a more thoughtful commentator. George is a hack.
