Question: Is it normal to look at a picture of someone in a newspaper or on-line, discover a few facts about them, and form an idea of what that person is really like?
I think all of us do that to some degree, really without thinking much about it.
But, when you are a writer and have access to media and then write your improvised thoughts as though they are factual, then you are being dishonest; presenting ideas to the public which appear correct, but, in fact, are just the writer’s aberration.
What I am saying is based on fact and personal experience.
I just discovered an on-line article in something called, “Next Impulse Sports.” Among other things, the article states stating that the NBA lottery is “clearly rigged.”
I don’t know if it is or isn’t but I am mentioned in the article because in 2009, when I was representing the Wizards, I was declared the winner.
Well, I am not here to argue about lottery rigging, but what’s funny is the author’s assessing my reason for being there: “We can’t confirm whether or not she knew what she was attending.”
After spending forty-six years in the NBA, as an owner, how stupid does this writer think I am? In fact, some years earlier, I also attended the NBA Lottery and witnessed the behind the scenes drawing of the lottery numbers.
Attempting to learn about Next Impulse Sports, I researched and, according to their LinkedIn page, it is supposed to be a site to visit when someone wants to “waste time at work.”
Did I just waste mine?
