Journal APS reporter Swedien gone?

My email of this morning, to Journal
education reporter Jon Swedien,
"was aborted after 1 second".

I guess he's gone; who knows why.

Swedien joins a list of Journal and TV reporters who have sat with me at some length and were read in on the ethics, standards and accountability crisis in the leadership of the APS and on, the part Journal Editor in Chief Kent Walz and TV news directors play in the cover up of that crisis;

  • the cover up of felony criminal misconduct involving senior APS administrators, and
  • the wholesale abandonment by the leadership of the APS of their obligations as the senior most role models of student standards of conduct, and
    • the spending of operational dollars* without limit and without oversight, on legal defenses for administrators and school board members in order that they can be absolved of their guilt in "legal" settlements admitting no guilt, and enabling them to escape the legal consequences of their corruption and incompetence. 

      *Operational dollars are those that could be, should be and would be spent in classrooms if they were not being squandered along with our trust, buying admissions of no guilt for the likes of Winston Brooks and Marty Esquivel.

    Journal reporter Hailey Heinz, David
    Peercy and the architect of the cover up
    of corruption in the leadership of APS'
    publicly funded private police force,
    APS' interim Supt Brad Winter.
    The only Journal reporter who flat out refused to hear the truth (from me) was Hailey Heinz who maintained for years, that she was "too busy" to meet.

    Aside from Heinz, it must be tough for any real journalist to learn the truth about the corruption and incompetence in the leadership of a school district that spends more than a billion tax dollars a year, and then not be allowed to write about it.

    Kent Walz
    I would like to believe Journal
    reporters at some point tell their
    boss to take his cover up and
    shove it.

    Likely; just wistful thinking.
