Rebecca Aguilar, the Dallas reporter who got suspended last week after the station was innundated with calls protesting her handling of a story, tells blogger Ed Bark how everything unfolded.
She reveals in Bark’s blog that the object of her story called her to let her know what he was going to do and where to find him, and that the script for her October 15th story was approved before it went on the air.
“We have layers of gatekeepers,” Aguilar says. “And I’m the only one suspended.”
“Upon reviewing the interview, it is apparent that while Aguilar used bold tactics to pursue the story, she did not violate any journalistic standards.”
