Keep quotes in context, keep facts straight
To the editor:
I think the Sept. 10 article about how teachers try to explain current events to high school students on was poorly put together.
Referring to Steve Mosley, who teaches at Notre Dame Regional High School, the article said, "He uses clips from broadcast news and excerpts from Channel One reports shown each day in homeroom." Mr. Mosley said Channel One was shown in homeroom, not that he uses clips of it in class. He tapes ABC news and shows us excerpts from that.
I was one of the kids interviewed in the article. I feel the reporter chopped and mutilated not just my quotes, but each of the other students' quotes. After the article was published, the other students and I talked about the quotes and the article and agreed that the quotes were taken out of context.
I wish you would keep our quotes in context of what we said and keep the facts straight.
