I think the spokesperson is in her right to temporarily delay WWAY access to the detective. When WWAY cannot get the spokesperson's quote correctly in the original version of this article, who knows what the reporter is going to quote the detective with.
For those that would appreciate the history of this story around 3:09 pm Tuesday October 1, the webpage had Ms. Rawley quoted as saying to the reporter that the reporter being able to speak to a detective as "It's not going to happen." Which seems quite harsh, doesn't it?
Fast forward to 3:51 pm when Ms. Rawley denies the reporter access to the detective, the quote miraculously changes to "It's probably not going to happen"..."because she said investigators were too busy (WWAY quote)" That definitely seems like a complete change in tone in the way Ms. Rawley is being presented and would make me upset if the reporter mis quoted me to make me look antagonistic.
The question now in my mind, was whether that misquote was retaliation for being delayed access to the detective. An answer we probably will not learn from the reporter.
