Missoulian reporter Gwen Florio is apparently either the victim of a theft or has had surgery to remove the thick skin reporters build up during their studies in journalism school.
Missoula police have not been alerted to a thick skin disappearance, and detectives say they have not been asked to search for an epidermis.
Missoulian readers are concluding Florio
has shed hers voluntarily.
I don't know where Florio got her journalism degree, but if it was in the hallowed halls of the J-school at UM, where I went, I'm pretty sure she skipped class the day they covered lede graphs.
It's been awhile, but I recall something about getting who, what, when, where, why, how and to whom all into one sentence.
I dunno, maybe it's fuzzy, but that's how I did it for almost twenty years and that's how I still see it done elsewhere.
Did you know Florio
once reported for the Philadelphia Bulletin?
either didn't bother to actually peruse those links she
searched on the site, or, if she
ignored their context and the reaction to them entirely.
It's hard to conclude anything other than her
intention was to make it appear as though such comments represent the site as a whole.
Despite the fact that this information wasn't confirmed anywhere else (except Twitter, for what its worth), the discussion that followed was laced with anti-feminist epithets and declarations VERY similar to the ones that Gwen
used in her
opening paragraphs of the article you mention.
I was disgusted.
There was no reason for people to attack the alleged victim (happy now??) for a football player being expelled, which is a decision that would reside with the UNIVERSITY, and NOT the victim.
I saw many comments wondering if she
consented and later felt guilty, and that this is typically what happens when you piss off a woman.
