Local man Jay Fox, 42, has told the Lampoon that he was “outraged” after his comments to a local reporter were reported verbatim in her article.
The reporter asked Mr Fox about relations between people who stand up to wipe after using the toilet and people who sit down to wipe after using the toilet. He stated in his correspondence with her “in terms of relations between [these groups], I believe there are none”.
The reporter, who wished to remain nameless despite the fact it might get her article some traffic, duly inserted this quote ino the article. The quote was selected on account of it being from a local busybody and thus someone of importance in local news.
Mr Fox proceeded to slam the reporter in in the comments of the article, allegedly directing his friends to do the same.
We at the Lampoon wholeheartedly support Mr Fox. The fight against having words reported as they were said is a noble cause, and we believe Mr Fox’s cry for justice.
