Thank-you BCN for Doing your Job | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Dear Editor (publisher),

    I wanted to write to you and thank you for your publication's courage to publish news regarding candidates for County Commissioner. It is with regret our newspaper of record here in Beaufort County will not do the same.

    Last week the news broke on Candidate Derik Davis and his involvement in the egging incident at Paul Funeral Home after his firing from there. The police report diplomatically shows his involvement but does so in a way not to embarrass Paul Funeral Home. I commend the management at Paul Funeral Home for taking the high road and I'm sorry their company had to be put in a bad situation through no fault of their own.

    I was contacted last Thursday by the Washington Daily News and advised they would be running a story on this incident in this past weekend's edition. That did not occur. I am disturbed that they fail to cover news that is actually relevant in Beaufort County. This publication has been a Democratic organization for many years with the old school mentality of covering for their own. Mr. Davis comes from a Democratic family here and although he has filed as a Republican this doesn't change who and what he is. I condemn the Daily News for their lack of journalistic integrity and burying this important news story. The people deserve the truth.


    Gary L. Brinn

    Beaufort County Commissioner
