JL Kirk Lesson Learned: Don’t Hold Private Discussions?

An interesting thought from, Ripples, observed & created by David St. Lawrence

JL Kirk has still not gotten the message. Instead of actually addressing the issues raised by Katherine Coble, they are now shifting to the time-honored tactic of “discussing the matter privately” with the Cobles.

JL Kirk is still denying the charges made by Coble, so I’m not buying the idea that the private discussion is anything other than a way to keep the pressure on the Cobles without having the blogosphere listening in.

I sincerely hope that Katherine and her husband are accompanied by a Media Bloggers Association attorney during any discussion with JL Kirk. If not in person, at least on a conference call.

If you sincerely believe that JL Kirk has had a change of heart, you are very trusting soul. You might be interested in handling some Nigerian emails which I will be happy to forward to you…

Certainly I hope that the media reports are correct, and J.L. Kirk & Associates truly did fold. However, I’m worried for my fellow blogger, and hope that St. Lawrence’s (and my) concerns are wrong.
