Great Moments in Journalism XXIX

A shout-out to Denver’s own Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle reporter Glen Richardson, who defended his use of fabricated direct quotes in an article on crime in the Lowry area by arguing:

“I’m not sure that it was misleading. It was, in a sense, probably embellished.”

  1. Great quote of the century: “I’m not sure that it was misleading. It was, in a sense, probably embellished.”

  2. Glen was my boss at Dairy Magazine. Hooray for Glen. But whatever happened to his twin, Len Richardson? I thought Glen made him up, but I REALLY saw them together at one time!
