Conflict-free Conklin |

Conflict-free Conklin

In politics, “conflict of interest” is a technical term defined by statute. Your editorial on Bruce Conklin runs 16 paragraphs and five bullet points attacking Mr. Conklin’s integrity before conceding that there was no violation.

The Union is entitled to have an opinion on the candidates. However, journalistic ethics still require you to be honest, fair and accurate in reporting an endorsement. In this case, it is your integrity, not Bruce Conklin’s, that seems wanting.
