Sometimes the state of journalism in this country today is enough to make someone who has spent a life in the business want to cry.
Here is the Anchorage Daily News, the state’s largest newspaper and news source reporting a whopper of a misstatement on Wednesday:
“Some (the ‘some’ was a story here days ago) have suggested that if Alaskans are given $3,000 Permanent Fund dividend checks, they might contribute at high levels through Pick.Click.Give, a program that allows people to pick individual organizations and donate part of their checks. (Rasmuson Foundation president and CEO)Kaplan said that Pick.Click.Give generates $2.7 million, which is spread among 628 organizations.
