Many years ago, Craig doherty advertised in The "Field" for contibutors to his fledgling magazine. I sent him a resume and earned a spot in the second issue. The article FIELD TRIAL'S UNSUNG HEROES now hangs under glass at the Bird Dog Museum.
Several of my articles appeared in later issues; but, I noted with dismay that they were heavily edited, or in some cases completely rewritten! I called Mr. Doherty and told him that- "You will never receive another manuscript from me!" And, he hasn't!!
There were some other instances - where he published negative articles about the The Bird Dog Foundation's location (authored by someone else) and the policies of its operation.
The media - like fire - can be useful or detrimental. Let's always remind ourselves - they intend to market their product.
