Subject: RE: Ambassador
by the way, thanks for writing a story bashing the us courts in alabama and texas and not calling the u.s. for comment. how could it be fair to report on a guy who bashes the u.s. and not have any reaction or comment from the u.s.? this keeps happening and it is really outrageous. the next time we get slammed like this in a bloomberg story we are taking it up with an editor. we are here 24 hours a day and are very accessible. reuters and ap always call us for a reaction when we are the subject -the people of alabama deserve to be defended against this criticism. bloomberg is playing favorites when you give this guy all the space to criticize us and don’t afford us the same chance.
