Accuracy in Journalism is of paramount importance when dealing with Cops and Criminal Justice Issues. When you are reporting a story, especially one involving a former SPD Chief of Police who has at best very, very questionable abilities, DO NOT portray her as having some association she DOES NOT HAVE. LEEDA IS NOT “the FBI’s”. It never has been. If you don’t know why the Federal Bureau of Investigation “required” LEEDA to make a disclaimer on everything they own, do your own research and find out the WHY!
“she’s been a Seattle-based instructor with the FBI’s Law Enforcement Executive Development Association, a private nonprofit that contracts with the FBI for training services.”
AND BY THE WAY… BRAD ARLETH WAS NEVER SUSPENDED! IT IS THE REPORTER’S JOB TO GET THE HEADLINE CORRECTED WHEN IT IS COMPLETELY WRONG!!!
