With­out leaks, not much news

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Re: Dan Dan­bom,

“Adele Arakawa an­nounces 9News re­tire­ment,” Dec. 7 news story.

In to­day’s “goose-meet-gan­der” seg­ment, long­time TV news an­chor Adele Arakawa “ex­pressed dis­may at the way her re­tire­ment was leaked ... . ” Isn’t it a wee bit hyp­o­crit­i­cal of a sup­posed news or­ga­ni­za­tion to com­plain that in­for­ma­tion was leaked? What do they think their “send us a news tip” so­lic­i­ta­tion gen­er­ates? Ad­ding to the irony, The Post’s on­line story about Arakawa also had a sendus-a-news-tip fea­ture. With­out the ben­e­fit of leaks — I mean “news tips” — I don’t think a news­cast could go more than six min­utes, and a news­pa­per six pages.
