Did Legislators Get a Public Radio Reporter Fired?

Nashville Scene (MAR 25, 2017)

UTC also seems determined to damage Helbert’s credibility as much as possible. When the Scene first spoke with Heddleston on Thursday, he said Helbert was fired for not disclosing she was a journalist. When he called again on Friday, he said Helbert had also “edited comments from Books that seemed to fit her story” — i.e., had cut and spliced the tape to make Brooks say something he hadn’t said, an incredibly serious journalistic transgression.
