Miami New Times Editor to Predecessor: Back Off, Pipsqueak!
This is utter garbage.
First, because it is factually incorrect: The editorial staff -- which, by the way, is larger than it has been in years -- has won more awards in the past two years than ever before. We took the Investigative Reporters and Editors prize last year for the best investigation in America after breaking news of the sex offenders living under the Julia Tuttle Causeway. And we have delivered more than 40 state and regional awards, better than ever in our history. What has the Biscayne Times won? Ever?
Second, because the BT piece is ethically challenged. Not only did it fail to mention that after almost 20 years, Mullin left New Times in disgrace after the suicide of a local African-American politician, but also it didn't say that eight people listed on the masthead as "contributors" have received New Times paychecks. Perhaps bitterness drove the comments. But how would the reader know?
I guess Jack King forgot to call for a response. He might not know better. Mullin should.
