Katie is on the student newspaper staff this year. For the April issue, her assignment was to report on Rex Reader, an annual PTO-sponsored reading program. She thought it’d be a cinch because she’d interview the closest PTO officer (me) and be done with it. I find just a few problems with her reporting skills:
- I was not aware I was being interviewed that time she plopped down on the floor by my desk and asked me two questions about Rex Reader and giggled at the dog during my answers.
- In her very short article, she managed to make me sound like a complete moron.
See for yourself (I highlighted the “My mom is a dummy” paragraph for your pleasure):
This is slander or libel or somethin’ sinister I saw on Law & Order once. Pretty sure.
