Bad Reporting at its Worst

The Davis County Clipper did an article on Dallas's new tax business. Great. Slight problem. Everything about the article was wrong, and to top it off the writing is terrible.

They made up quotes allegedly by Dallas (no one who has heard him speak would believe them.) They made false claims as to his licensure (he will be a CPA soon, but he isn't quite yet) [but he is a tax expert.] But even worse, they somehow managed to get his phone number wrong, the address wrong, and the date of his open house wrong. Basically, they got absolutely nothing right. You'd have better chances at getting a well-written article if you put a bunch of monkeys in front of typewriters.

Check out Shannon's blog entry about the monstrosity.

Then visit Redwood Tax's Grand Opening party on Saturday January 31, 2009 from 11-4. The address is 420 N. Redwood Road in North Salt Lake. To make an appointment, call 801-295-6789. Walk-ins are welcome. For directions, visit the web page at http://www.redwoodtax.com/ .

Was that so hard to get right??

Remember that article about Amelia Goes to the Ball where they made it sound like I had composed it? I had people coming up to me for weeks congratulating me on writing an opera.

I hope all turns out well for him despite the misinformation. I've noticed signs for his open house all over the area. Sure is nice to be getting new businesses by us. Now all we need is a grocery store - preferably Albertsons.
