Subject Heading: Donovan, Ethics, Morning Call "newspaper" (again)

FYI: in today's Morning Call, "reporter" Jarrett Renshaw is clearly endeavoring to attract and incite a crowd of support for Michael Donovan vs Mayor Pawlowski.

Blog post blasts Allentown Mayor

Curiously, although the article is about Donovan's blog, notice the glaring omission of the Allentown Ethics Board's
investigation of Donovan for his questionable blogging activities.

How is this fact not news in this context?

Also take note that Renshaw's article links to (as other "news" sources) two blog posts by frequent Michael Donovan guest abuser blogger, and libel lawsuit defendant, Bernie O'Hare, Lehigh Valley Ramblings.

I bring this to your attention re:

171.04 USE OF POSITION OR PRESTIGE FOR PERSONAL BENEFIT

... as it relates to the way too crony-cozy-connected relationships that exist between Michael Donovan, The Morning Call, Valley Blogosphere, and the heavily dominant
Morning Call-affiliated local blogosphere.

Have a nice weekend all.

Millie Perez ... is this what you meant by "handled as appropriate?"
