i beg to differ

Real Detroit
Editor: John Mahalak

dear mr. mahalak,

i am writing you in regard to real detroit's march 17th edition featuring 'The Best of Detroit'. as your 'Best Investigative News Team', your choice was the fox2 problem solvers. i can't begin to tell you how off-base this choice was.

your 'prestigious award' cites the following: 'Cheats, con artists and matchstick men be warned: The Problem Solvers are coming for you. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of your lives.' are you serious? i have had two run-in's w/ the fox2 problem solvers team consisting of fanchon stinger, ron savage, charles pugh, & greg gallagher. in both cases, their previously planned exposes were thwarted, & in order to prevent wasted fox2 staff resources, they blackmailed a trio of 18 year old females to entrap an innocent bystander. that bystander was me.

maybe not today, maybe not tuesday, maybe not a week from a week from tuesday? i'm sure real criminals are ruining hundreds of pairs of perfectly good boxer shorts & jeans across michigan as they read this. promoting &applauding this rennegade crew of dirty, unethical 'reporters' as heroes only shows that either you're on the take, or your own investigative reporters phone-it-in routinely.

they act as if they are above legal & ethical standards. as a father of 4, possibly 6 children (paternity test results due back in 2 weeks), they are setting a terrible example for america's next generation of aspiring noble journalists. thanks to you & the problem solvers my kids now don't believe in anything & are planning to go to law school. words no parent wants to ever hear.

please do your jobs in the future & actually do some research on your award winners before it goes to print. there are several examples of this group's reckless, under-handed tactics located at this site.
your prompt response on this matter is appreciated.

best regards,
