Accuracy? What’s That?

If I’m a reporter, I would think the most important thing to do is to make sure I’m talking to the person I think I am. Ya know, if I’m supposed to be interviewing Hillary Rodham Clinton, I don’t accidentally interview Hillary Wicai Viers, communications director for another senator. But that’s exactly what John Goodall, a reporter for the Warren Tribune Chronicle did. The only verification he got that he was speaking to his target was her picking up the phone saying “this is hilary.” Never did he make sure he got the right Hillary. Way to go, ace. Your career’s looking bright.
