Email from Bobby Schindler: Responds to article in Tampa Tribune

Topics: News

I believe that Terri's brother does a better job than I could do to express the frustration and exasperation that the entire Schindler family is feeling over the treatment of Terri by both the local and the national media. For that reason, I am posting Bobby's email rather than writing about it:

Richard,
You are absolutely right with your response to the Tampa Tribune article today. This is precisely what my family has had to deal with from the beginning with our local media.

I read this article and felt like the underlying message was that the courts haven't killed my sister fast enough. Meanwhile, Michael Schiavo continues to get a free ride as the local media refuses to report any of the ongoing abuses and neglect of my sister, and refuses to report any of the mounting evidence of a possible violent attack by Michael Schiavo the night Terri collapsed; not to mention all of the additional unlawful activity surrounding my sister's situation that continues to be suppressed from the public.

In my opinion, this is one of the most shameful demonstrations of unethical journalism existing today by our local media.

Bobby

Wondeful and sadly true letter. However, the link to the Tribune article doesn't seem to work when I click on it. Is there another way to get to it?
