We got taken to task recently for language that we used in Rubber stamp?, an article about the facilities advisory committee at EPISD and their work on the upcoming bond issue.
One of the criticisms was over the use of the term “leak out”.
“Worse yet committee members were supposedly told that they should not let word of the $600 million leak out to the public.”
The slide below was one of the last slides in a presentation that was made to the facilities advisory committee at their June 29, 2016 meeting:
Many of us would consider the phrase “Keep your work proprietary to the committee” to mean don’t share with people outside of the committee.
We make our share of mistakes writing this blog but rest assured that we exert extra effort to confirm the facts as we know them.
We deserve better
