Dear Coast editors:
While I'm sure many readers revel in Bruce Wark's harsh assessment of this city's press, he's not being entirely honest. Many Coast readers would be surprised to know Wark once worked for the Daily News, which is often the target of his rants.
It's telling that someone who preaches—and teaches—ethics in journalism wouldn't find this an appropriate disclosure when writing about the newspaper. Perhaps whenever Wark criticizes the Daily News, he should note his history with the paper—and the circumstances surrounding his departure.
