Who is Dissing the Dispatch? Daniel Walters.
Journalist Daniel Walters labeled the Idaho Dispatch as “right wing” in this blog post where he covers the Idaho debate regarding ranked-choice voting.
Several months prior, Walters spoke during the Fall 2022 meeting of the Idaho Press Club. He showed slides and stated in his presentation that a journalist must “be precise with your labeling.”
Walters spent 15 years working for The Inlander, a publication covering Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho. He wrote various types of articles such as this one about where to spot marmots in Spokane.
The publication introduces Walters as someone,
“…who’s made a career out of exposing con artists, conspiracy theorists, vigilantes, preppers, racists and bad-behaving public officials…”Advertisement
InvestigateWest describes itself as,
“…a nonprofit investigative journalism newsroom located in Seattle, WA. We focus on critical issues that impact our communities throughout the Pacific Northwest and Cascadia, with a special focus on environment, government and corporate accountability, and public health.”
The About Page of their website also includes the InvestigateWest commitment to the theories and practices of diversity, equity, and inclusion.Advertisement
