Poetic license on SB 68

Brian Gatewood redramatizes a telephone conversation he had with Sen. Gary Tapp, who sponsored SB 68, a bill that would make it more likely for foster and adoptive children to be placedin safe homes.

"Here’s a dramatic, although not verbatim, rendition of how my conversation with Senator Tapp went."

Is this something like "based on a true story"? And Jake calls it a "transcript" despite Gatewood's admission that he was jogging in Seneca Park when he took the call and reconstructed the call from memory.

More evidence of the high standards of journalism over at Page One.
