From the editorial disclosure:
"Statesman editorials are the unsigned opinion expressing the consensus of the Statesman’s editorial board. To comment on an editorial or suggest a topic, email email@example.com. Disclosure: Publisher Michael Jung is a member of the St. Luke's Strategic Initiatives Committee."Note. A KBC member alerted the Boise Weekly (BW) that the above disclosure had in fact appeared in the print and online version of the opinion piece. Mr. Jung's St. Luke's affiliation was not, however, disclosed to members of KBC when meeting with the Statesman's editorial board in May, which would have been appropriate. The editorial board has every right to its opinion, just like others following this process.
Everyone makes mistakes; we're happy to see the BW print a clear correction to its story. The BW is the only 'local and independent' paper that has consistently given coverage to both sides of this issue, which is what the Fourth Estate is all about.
