“Thought you might find this Harrisburg Patriot-News op-ed interesting,” writes a Romenesko reader.
“Aside from the, er, unique perspective the editorial provides, it seems strange a reporter would be writing opinion columns on stories he covers for another news outlet.”
This comes from Romenesko reader Rob Devine:
Your posting of that op-ed in the Harrisburg Patriot-News reminded me of a column I had seen late last year about the same thing. It was an op/ed in the International Business Times entitled, “Why Hazing Can Lead to Positive Change,” and was written after someone died from hazing at Florida A&M.
It’s amazing to me that anyone would write these stories, but it seems at least Mr. Papst has a brother-in-arms with Mr. Carey.
