@Mary - It's a bit extreme to be so irritated by Dave McNair's reporting that you hope he leaves town. If it's that upsetting to you just don't read it. I found the Hook's reporting on the VQR story to be extremely warranted as there was no other outlet in Charlottesville that chose to follow the...

Is it because of his personal, close connection with the Jacquith family? You completely made that up. To my knowledge, I've only met Dave McNair twice, ever (one of those times in passing, on the Downtown Mall). Nobody who is related to me has ever uttered his name in my presence and, as best as I...

@Mary -- Dave didn't mention Starsia. I did as another example of what the UVA blind eye let happen. Same issue. Ignore the problems and hope they'll go away. When you stick your head in the sand, what's up in the air?

@Cville Native, your quote of my comment has nothing to do with your response of "And why shouldn't Universities and Colleges have police blotters reported to them?" Are you saying that police were aware of the couple's beating each other. Did he or she report it? If neither, then how could it...

@Mary - I have followed this story closely and am unaware of any factual errors in Mr. NcNair's reporting . Have you found any ? I appreciate the Hook's coverage which I found far more informative and in depth, but not biased, than other media . All towns should be so lucky to have such a fine...

@Mary, you are so full of yourself your eyeballs are brown. I can not find where Dave McNair mentioned Starsia.

With a budget of nearly $1,000,000 and just about a thousand subscribers (so that each subscription costs UVA roughly a mind-boggling $1000 for a $32 subscription!) and not much chance those numbers will improve, I think we're seeing an effort by UVA to get Genoways to move on (his own decision,...

Word Factory, I agree with you. UVa sweeps things under the rug, continually. David McNair, an excellent reporter, has followed the VQR under rungs, through sham audits, to very telling emails. This long story has been told with veracity by McNair and I know a lot of us are grateful. Genoways...

@ Mary: Ted Genoways might be a swell guy at backyard barbecues and greatly loved by his dog, but that has no bearing on his workplace behavior, which was egregious by any known standard. That's the issue here, and if you read the VQR email narrative published in The Hook a few months (?) ago, you...

I am also a home towner and a graduate of UVa. I have also been a loyal follower of the Hook. However, Dave McNair's vicious, biased, obsessiveness with Ted Genoways was unprecedented. Dave took it upon himself to try Mr. Genoways in his court of law. Is it because of his personal, close connection...
