ethics


To me the issue always has been and always will be one of DISCLOSURE.

If they disclose I have no problem.

But the problem is that they, pathetic as they innately are, refuse to disclose breaching every ethical standard in the book. But then again, I am not sure of any book on ethics that will suggest that it is clever for an editor to brag, in print, as he did on November 29, 2012, that he was speeding along at 90 mph because he was in a hurry.

Not sure whether other than me cares. So this could be a non-issue.

Alton seems to be at peace. All strife but bad memories from the past. So ‘conflict of interest’ might not matter.

“The Braysider” Sanctimonious, Disingenuous Editorial About Bullying Did Not Impress Me!

This week’s, viz. October 24, 2013, ‘Editorial’ in the Alton ‘The Braysider’ did not impress me. Actually made me mad. Hence this post.

There has been some MAJOR bullying incidents at Alton Central School (ACS) this year — some of it covered to an extent at the Board Meetings. I wrote about these incidents and what was happening at the Board Meeting. Even TODAY there are people reading my posts on these bullying related matters at ACS. There was also a 3rd-party bullying investigation at ACS that took place this Summer and I suspect it costs Alton Taxpayers at least $6,000. I asked about this at a School Board meeting just to get it on the record.

During all this time, ‘The Braysider’, with its CONFLICT OF INTEREST with ACS, and essentially the paid mouthpiece of ACS, stayed mum about bullying.

So to now see an Editorial about bullying makes me MAD — especially because it says NOTHING about what has been going on at ACS in terms of the issues. Just the steps being taken.

Then there is the bit when ‘he’ starts to tell PARENTS what to do! Give me a bloody break.

Who on the writing staff at ‘The Braysider’ has any (legitimate) children? So what expertise do they have about parenthood? Plus this from the guy that boasted in PRINT that he drives around at 90 miles per hour!

So, I was not impressed.
