The Montana Meth Project and Media Ethics

Shares

Would it be too much to ask that the
stories about the profound, magical, amazing, earth-shattering
success of the Montana Meth Project that appear every other day in
a Lee Newspaper mention that the chairman of the MMP is also the
publisher of the Billings Gazette?

It might also be nice if a news story considered the possibility
that the 2005 law restricting the sale of pseudoephedrine actually
really caused the decrease in meth use, but I don’t want to get my
hopes up too high.
