The South Florida Sun-Sentinel's vending machine outside Hollywood City Hall
My fact-filled email to a Sun-Sentinel reporter sheds long-overdue light on the behavior of both Florida state Sen. Eleanor Sobel and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel's sloppy and incurious brand of journalism, and how both negatively affect Broward residents; After today, I give up on the Sun-Sentinel until the Tribune Co. sell it off to someone savvy enough to give beleaguered Broward residents the quality newspaper they deserve, not more of the same old unsatisfactory status quo that is so gallingWhat follows is a copy of an overdue email that I sent Friday afternoon to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
