An open letter to the media, regarding the Sam Adams sex scandal

A petition that's floating around the Portland blog circles. I'll do my part and pass it on. Nearly 200 signatures as of this post.

"We are not unknown to you. We are your readers. We are also friends on Twitter; you link to our blogs; you seek us out for comments at events. Just as we benefit from your reporting and analysis, you benefit and profit from our work; we act as partners in many ways in covering Portland news. The next time a scandal shakes our city, we hope that you will remember we are here; and we hope you will not rush to express a judgment before you can possibly know whether it reflects our views. "

Read and sign it if you feel so inclined.
