Reader GauchoGreg however also takes issue with the final sentence of Kenneally’s report – ‘Clowns with better senses of humor than he has, hopefully.’ Complains GG:
Tim Kenneally, is this an editorial or news? By good journalistic standards you should have left your thoughts out of the last line and simply reported the facts. Your insertion of your opinion of Tosh’s humor makes me question how reliable your article is or it if is slanted. We don’t need more slanted news – we need honest news (even if entertainment news like this). Think about holding those opinions to drinks in bars where your friends can respond to whether your opinion is valid or misguided.
It’s a valid, solidly articulated observation. While there are areas of TheWrap (like the site’s blog network and Sharon Waxman’s “Waxword” column) that make room for opinion, the site’s editors should have in this instance chopped the final throwaway sentence.
