Letter: Better to be right than first

Journalists seek to deliver, and society craves, fast information due to the evolution of the internet, social media and the 24-hour news cycle. But at what cost? 

The Los Gatan’s front-page article on the events of the Oct. 5 Town Council meeting was published in haste. The written words showed a lack of research, historical knowledge, and context of the situation that has taken place over the last 18 months. Your words turned aggressors into the victims and the victims into the aggressors and there were unsubstantiated claims made against a minor in the community. 

Mr. Pulcrano and Mr. Penner, I am thrilled to have a weekly newspaper that focuses on the Los Gatos community. However, I urge you to take a moment and make sure you have it right. It is better to be right than first.
