Miami Herald Executive Editor Anders Gyllenhaal sends Random Pixels a note:
"Bill, Please be so kind as to take me off your email list. I make it a point to keep up with informed and responsible criticism of the paper, which is invaluable. I can see that's not your interest when you find fault with virtually anything this dedicated, capable staff takes on. Anders"Looks like the pressure is getting to him.
Thanks for your note Anders.By the way Anders, it looks like you guys missed another one. Or am I not allowed to say that?
I call things the way I see 'em.
However you are mistaken on one point.
I don't always find fault with everything the Herald does.
Just when you screw up.
I guess you didn't take the time to read my post where I TRIED to call your paper and alert you to a major breaking story here on Miami Beach on April 6th only to be rebuffed by one of your editors.
However in that same post I praised the work of David Ovalle.
Or this post [also] on Ovalle's fantastic work.
And maybe you didn't see my post back in September praising the work of Pat Farrell.
And I guess you missed my piece that raved about the work that Tim Chapman does, day in and day out.
To say I always find fault is disingenuous.
And I'm sorry, I didn't get the memo you sent saying that bloggers should only post positive things about the Herald. Perhaps you can resend that.
I know things are bad over there...but please don't take it out on me.
