For a post by post review of what’s been going on, see here.
To recap, it’s been two full weeks since the Northeast Ohio Media Group held its endorsement interview with Governor John Kasich and his two challengers and posted video of that interview. Within a few days, the video disappeared and Chris Quinn demanded that Plunderbund remove the video. I first learned of its removal from this tweet by Tony Ganzer, of ideastream.com. I emailed Mr. Quinn, as did many others, and like them, received no reply. I also contacted leading journalism figures, blogged and tweeted and eventually they wrote great descriptions and analyses of a VP of Content removing a rare, newsworthy video of a sitting governor, seeking re-election, endorsed by the media outlet and likely to be a presidential or vice-presidential candidate – and refusing to explain it to readers, to reporters, to the readers rep and even to them.
The question now: Will Mr. Quinn speak of it on air on Friday? Will he be asked about it? To be fair, Nick Castele has two pieces about it at ideastream. (Other local outlets that have given this story coverage include among others, Crain’s Cleveland Business and Cleveland Scene.) However, as is obvious from the NEOMG’s Readers Rep column published online-only yesterday, Mr. Quinn has yet to speak for himself.
The remaining questions: Does Mr. Quinn know that The Ohio Channel posts video of Sound of Ideas shows? Will they be sure to tell him? And will he want it taken down?
