WHERE'S THE BILL OF SALE?Furr, who is part of the WMAY news staff, also has a talk show. I have no idea what she did or didn’t say about the strange Cahnman car story on her talk show (I’m not able to listen), but if its anything like the blog post, I think she’s crossed a line. The blog post itself crosses that line in my opinion. Yes, as of the time of the post there were still questions, but I’m not sure taunting Cahnman was the way to go. What makes good blogging or talk show fodder doesn’t always make for good journalism. I’m not sure you can just switch hats that easily in cases like this.
We're waiting, Sam Cahnman. You said you'd have proof for us on Thursday of your sale of the vehicle that was found registered to you.. with drug paraphernalia in it. Today is Friday. Will we have it Monday?
Now I understand the dilemma. I used to be a news director at a radio station and I did a talk show at the same station. Sometimes it was a fine line to walk, but I don’t ever remember calling out the subject of a developing news story that our station was covering.
I guess it’s just a matter of degree, but it seems to me that there is a way to raise and discuss questions without being antagonistic about it. It’s a hazard that comes with doing two jobs.
