Loescher not a thief

All it takes is shallow journalism to put a legal action into the court of public opinion. The Empire’s research on the article on Bob Loeshcer is nil and the article is full of holes and accomplishes nothing more than allowing people to jump to conclusions (a hardy exercise while belittling the name of a person who literally spent his life working for the betterment of this region.

My brother, Robert W. Loescher, actually wrote a “My Turn” article to the JE right after his “sudden departure from Sealaska.” Bob is not a thief, but is burdened with newly elected officials who also have not done their research. Bob is a business consultant and a businessman. You can bet that there are quality work products resulting in the full story that goes well beyond the new ANB/S leadership, who are embarrassing themselves and their organization in this effort.

It is way too easy for journalism to discredit someone with half or inaccurate reporting. That alone should be illegal!
