Paula please, the notion that "SCANDAL vs. HOPE" is even an equation should never come into a discussion. It just doesn't make sense. The opposite of SCANDAL is HOPE? The majority of citizens voted for him, surely they don't want him to go under. Surely they don't want him to fail. That's news? This is directed primarily for your producer, not you.
There's an old saying: People that don't know, don't know that they don't know.
That's the problem with the citizens of Detroit, who turn their eye to how bad things really are. Let's hope the human spirit can overcome years of corrupt and inefficient government. That's HOPE. The reality is, nothing has changed for 40 years in the city. It's very very sad. Looking at the point of view of others does not, can not, and will not change the reality of things. Things are what they are, and a Staples Office does not change anything.
Thank you for your time
You're waaaayyy off base here. I don't spin anything. I look for lots of sides to stories… so sorry you're not willing to look at things from the point of view of others. How unfortunate for you. At no time did I okay it… it's not my job. It is my job to consider the opinions of others.
Paula it's not SCANDAL vs. HOPE. It's wrong vs right. To side with SCANDAL with the illusion of HOPE is absurd. It's being intellectually dishonest.
I cannot believe how the spin your reporting constantly portrays when it comes to the city of Detroit. I'm sick of it. Part of the problem with the city is citizens supporting someone who constantly is in scandal. People deserve the government that they put in place. Let's have hope that nothing really happened, and that the citizens can really be heard and real progress is made. The city is dead, has been dead yet you continue to talk about how great it is...like there being a STAPLES in some neighborhood. Are you kidding me? Local politics has become just like the national election, simply a popularity contest - our own version of American Idol. So Nepotism by the mayor is ok with the people you've interviewed? So stealing their money for political cover up is ok with them? I've had enough.
