It's not every day you hear constructive criticism about a published post on Portsmouth Patch, but I like to think it makes for a better site overall and source of information for you, the readers.
Portsmouth Patch is about community and that means involvement. When the community speaks out about a certain article, we listen.
On Friday, I heard from several of you - through e-mail, comments and in person - about the article concerning a court case involving state Rep. Dan Reilly's parents.
The Rhode Island Supreme Court has ruled that William J. and Marielle T. Reilly of Florida, formerly of Portsmouth, must pay back unpaid taxes totaling $1.3 million, according to The Providence Journal.
Portsmouth Patch readers commented that Rep. Dan Reilly has nothing to do with the court case and, therefore, shouldn't have been in the article.
Joe Sousa: Patch should spend more time on the story so reader can understand why they dispute the Tax Claim. Dan Reilly has nothing to do with this story. More facts, less got you cheap shots.
We want to know what more readers think. Should politicians be named in stories involving relatives? If you wrote this story, what would you do? Would you do anything differently?
