The Blade: There Were No Threats Of Bad Press


Readers Report

THE BLADE: THERE WERE NO THREATS OF BAD PRESS

Your story included the false assertion that as an opponent of unleashing the Baby Bells, I threatened Ohio Representative Michael Oxley (R-Ohio) with unfavorable coverage in The (Toledo) Blade in an effort to influence his position on telecommunications issues.

Neither I nor any company with which I am affiliated does business that way. As I told your reporter before you published your story, my August meeting with Representative Oxley in his Lima (Ohio) office was a friendly conversation that dealt with substantive issues. No threats, veiled or otherwise, were made by anyone.
