Home Depot story a goof

Reports falsely claimed city 'forced' company to fund worker center

by Daniel DeBolt

A series of misleading reports in several news outlets boil down to one big correction: Mountain View has never received, requested or required $250,000 from Home Depot to help pay for the city's Day Worker Center.

I'm assuming the other comments thread on this article was locked because the story has been reposted by the Editor. Here is a link to the other comments:

What happened to the other comments thread on this article?

It was locked for no reason, and now it is gone. Eric and I were having a very civil debate about the Home Depot development proposal. I enjoy contributing to this forum, but I am puzzled by these recent actions by the editorial staff.

Matt,

Sorry about that, I locked it by mistake. By now the fire probably has gone out on that discussion, but I'll unlock it anyway just in case.

Who cares? Home Depot sent out false information, newspapers apparently quoted them ... So what?
