Just about everyone thought we were wrong.
I thought that your story on Michael Slaughter was unnecessary and hurtful to the parties involved. I don't know how the story came to you, don't you think it was a highly personal thing that did not need to be broadcast on the local news...think of his family's feelings.
I want you to know how much I disapprove of your making a local news report about this resignation. I do not believe this is anything but sensationalism and certainly does nothing to enhance our trust in your news department. I believe that this matter was, and should have been between Reverend Slaughter and his congregation.
I have always regarded your program as above average, quite professional for the area and on other stations I would not have been a bit surprised. To broadcast such a story, however, leaves me cold. Yes, Mr. Slaughter was wrong, yet I feel deeply for his family and his church and I think your actions in running this story did nothing to offset their pain.
I was dismayed when I heard your report on the pastor at West Salem Baptist Church. This was not news...it was an attack on a situation similar to gossip. Other stations in the Valley have taken events to the point of sensationalism. You have entered their arena with this story.
