Two weeks ago, Margaux Salcedo wrote a controversial
"blind item" about a certain "BBB"
that effectively put into question every food blogger's motives.
A good friend of mine got pilloried,
yet in her ff-up, Ms. Salcedo conveniently ignores this fact.
At the very least,
she should have made clarifications and
cleared the bloggers who were unfairly accused.
Isn't that what real journalists are supposed to do,
present both sides of the story?
Instead, in her follow-up column today, Margaux
"spins" her cutesy expose' into a pompous declaration.
Justifications after the fact
sound just incoherent mumbling.
