NOT! Oh come on, Beth. That Paul Stapleton quote was the best thing that’s happened for the Gazette-Virginian in years. People actually remembered that the GV can actually do some real reporting once in a while!
Beth Robertson: Shooting The Messenger
Beth Robertson (a founding member of the We Heart Stapleton club) is highly offended that people called out Paul Stapleton on his remarks.
Hey Beth, we’ve never disagreed that Stapleton was explaining how the scores were calculated but have you ever heard this phrase… “It ain’t what you say, it’s how you say it.” You see, he could have explained that tiny yet important part when Sonny Riddle was interviewing him. Or maybe your reporter could have possible asked for clarification on that quote, eh? I know… that’s asking for too much reporting work from the GV but we can always hope. Beth, I haven’t seen you this outraged since someone farted during a high-falutin’-society thing on Mountain Road. Maybe you need to stick with copying forwarded email crap for your next few columns.
Paul Stapleton’s big enough to take care of himself, but thanks for the moral outrage anyway.
