Boulder Daily Camera Editor Abruptly Quits. http://www.bouldernews.com/bdc/news_columnists/article/0,1713,BDC_2421_2215496,00.html http://www.bouldernews.com/bdc/city_news/article/0,1713,BDC_2422_2215537,00.html Interesting. She just up and quit. They are looking for her replacement as we speak. There are many fine reporters at the Boulder Daily Camera. In fact it was the Boulder Daily Camera that gave us our one and only mention of the petition in a newspaper. For that I am grateful. After reading the public Krebs file I think the first thing the new editor should do is apologize to Fleet White and his family for having the likes of Barrie Hartman on their staff. Let's revisit what Mr. Hartman said to Alex Hunter. Page 8 of Linda Wickmans notes: "Barrie Hartman asked if the newspaper could blast the BPD if they don't pursue this...Alex replied, yes, and commented that this a grand jury type of case." First it's odd that Hartman asks Hunter for permission to "blast the BPD." Since when does an honest newsperson have to ask permission from a public official... Continue on with Hunter's phone logs. Monday 3/27/00 3:12 pm. Jann Scott.He was talking with Barrie Hartman and Lee Hill about the alleged sex ring that the Whites are involved in. Is this true?" Since when does a newspaper editor like Hartman start flinging unsubstantiated accusations to another media person like this? I am sure Jann Scott thought this story was true coming from the likes of Barry Hartman. After all Hartman was the Opinion Editor at the Camera. Who would think Hartman would start saying this type of crap unless it was true. At least Scott called Hunter to ask him about it. Who knows what Hunter told him. It's one thing to meet with Lee Hill for a story. It's quit another for a supposedly respected newspaper editor to help try and destroy an innocent man based on false accusations. Hartman never gave up either. Never apologized for being wrong. With the public file finally being read by numerous people I can only hope the first thing the new editor of the Boulder Daily Camera will do is apologize to the Whites. That's a start. The Camera needs to regain some credibility after letting the likes of Hartman run amuck, unchecked, doing his best to perpetuate an untruth. Let's hope the Camera does the right thing. Tricia PS. Perhaps the new editor would like to cover the Lee Hill story.
