Outzen Vendetta Against Cosson Jumps the Gun

Rick Outzen's vendetta against Press Secretary Derek Cosson showed his complete lack of journalistic integrity by posting that Cosson had been terminated by the Mayor for his role in the alleged sunshine law violations charged by the State Attorney's office.

Cosson-Terminated

Outzen also posts on his own blog that the mayor's decision to terminate Asmar could not be accurate because the dates don't line up.  The problem is the State attorney's office got the dates wrong in their report.  The letter from Jim Messer to Reynolds and the HR Director was on February 5, 2013, weeks prior to Asmar's termination.

Derek, I would demand a written public apology from Rick Outzen.

It appears the headline has changed! Cosson has been removed from the headline.

Did you take a snap shot of the first posting?
