Media Malpractice: 'Columbus Dispatch' Botches Hit on Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel Over 'Radical Islam'
by Patrick Poole
"No good deed goes unpunished."
That's what I said to myself last Friday when I got off the phone with Columbus Dispatch reporter Alan Johnson.
He had called me about a spun-up controversy regarding Ohio Treasurer and current U.S. Senate candidate Josh Mandel, who is now coming under fire for raising alarm about the growth of "radical Islam" in the state of Ohio -- and in particular, the corrosive influence of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
It's not that Johnson was combative. Quite the opposite. We spoke on background for about 20 minutes, and on the record for about five minutes, and it was all very cordial.
