Itstrue, I have my facts straight. I don't think my language was too harsh when a "trusted" news source is making up their news. This might be a "small town", insignificant news story, but if we can't trust the news on the small things, how can we trust them on the more important stories? Think about it. I have friends who work for the Times Free Press and I also worked for them years ago. I am completely shocked and disappointed that they would publish outright fallacies. Last time I checked it was illegal to do this. Illegal!Is anybody listening?
Since when is it legal for the news to be "made up"? This story is inaccurate and wildly exaggerated. First of all, not every apartment was infested with bedbugs. Second, not one news reporter interviewed a single occupant. So, where did these "clever" quotes come from? -"Bedbugs? I've heard that in little children's prayers all my life but I didn't know it was a real thing," she said. There is no 34 year old woman residing in the apartment complex. Apparently the Chattanooga Times Free Press does not interview, investigate, or verify their sources. What does this tell us about the accuracy of our "trusted" news source? Retraction please.
