Sunny side down

It’s inexcusable.

Despite her halfway apologies, Sun Times writer Paige Wiser committed the worst offense in the journalism universe.

Lying.

Her review of “Glee Live!” [now removed from the site] was a fraud, and in the age of engagement with our publics, she was ousted.

“Ashamed” and “exhausted” was how she described what happened.

I don’t know how my mom did it. My parents both worked full-time as my sister and I grew up.

Dad cooked every so often, but it was usually Mom who cooked dinner every night.

Wiser was stressed and exhausted and on deadline. Doesn’t matter. There is no reason, none, to fabricate facts in journalistic writing.

I create fictional scenes: in poems, in short stories, in novels. Not in journalism.
