Since Bill Schmalfeldt was in such a corrective mode today, at least according to these twits:
I decided to remind him of my retraction request.
This is about the reasonable request I made of him yesterday.
I still await his reply.
And just in case anyone thinks a day isn’t enough time, I clarified this in comments on this blog long before I made the request. The request was made because he didn’t have the journalistic integrity to do the retraction on his own. Now, I’ve specifically asked for a retraction. I will continue to wait and see what becomes of my request.
Since Bill likes to brag about being a real journalist, and he loves to talk about being a member of the Society of Professional Journalist, I’ll remind him of a very important part of the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Conduct.
— Clarify and explain news coverage and invite dialogue with the public over journalistic conduct.
— Encourage the public to voice grievances against the news media.
— Admit mistakes and correct them promptly.
— Expose unethical practices of journalists and the news media.
— Abide by the same high standards to which they hold others.
-Code of Ethics, Society of Professional Journalists. Emphasis is from your host.
I shall await Bill to abide by his professed code of ethics.
