Article: Malloy Facing Lawsuit From Fellow Democrat

Date: June 15, 2010

This article by Christoper Keating, published June 15, 2010, is mostly the same as the article by Keating on the Courant's CapitoWatch blog Former Stamford Mayor Dannel Malloy Facing Slander Suit By Democrat Lee Whitnum Over Her Comments.

It reports on Whitnum suing Malloy for allegedly falsely making statements that Whitnum had made statements that were "anti-Israel and anti-Semitic."

Lack of Balance. Misleading: The article repeats allegations made by Whitnum, implicitly giving them some credence, without including any balancing information other than Malloy's pointing out Whitnum didn't like it when he "called her out" regarding statements which he "then viewed - and continue(s) to view - as anti-Semitic."

It also repeats allegations she keeps repeating about AIPAC, without any balancing opinions.
