Letter: Talking head gets education in media abuse

Submitted by: Dave (last name redacted upon request, reprinted with permission)

I am a newsphotographer at a tv station in Youngstown, and also a CHL-holder.

For months, the reporter I work with on the weekends could not understand how upset the media access to CHL holders made me and how my name was published. That is, until this Sunday's issue of the Vindicator came out.

[My co-worker] is to be married to another reporter from a rival station that is also the owner of the Vindicator. In the society section of the paper, was he and his future wife's photo and his address(!), along with mentioning the fact that they are living together. He is scared that some criminal will now see this and know where he lives and rob him. Does this kind of sound familiar?

To say the least, he now gets the point. He is even planning on moving.

Is this the kind of abusive media you want with access to your records?
