Greg Doudna Posted June 1, 2022 Share Posted June 1, 2022 I have received no response to the below polite, legitimate private inquiry to Max Good, producer of the film "The Assassination & Mrs. Paine". This followed an earlier polite attempt from me similarly worded of a private message via the Education Forum, unanswered. I also earlier discussed the claim and made two requests asking Max Good to disclose his source in that discussion, here: https://educationforum.ipbhost.com/topic/27750-are-any-records-being-held-back-on-ruth-paine/. Is it ethical for a journalist to refuse to answer a question of this nature concerning an allegation made by that journalist and published by that journalist? From:Greg DSent:Tuesday, May 17, 2022 10:08 PMTo:Max Good <firstname.lastname@example.org>Subject:The classified Paine files claim Hi Max, As I'm sure you have seen I have been offering comments on your film concerning Ruth Paine, I hope not representing you inaccurately or unfairly even when disagreeing over the negative portrayals in the film of Ruth, whom I knew in the Saint Petersburg, Florida Friends Meeting twenty years ago. I do not believe the accusations aired in the film are true. At the end of your film in text on-screen you say there are dozens of files related to the Paines that remain classified. This leaves viewers wondering what is being hidden. It makes Ruth Paine look suspicious, as the closing thought viewers take away from the film. Can you say what was your source for that claim? Did you verify that it was true? Are you able to name or identify any specific non-tax-return Paine record which remains withheld? If you were mistaken on that closing statement, would you consider posting and publicizing a correction, in fairness to Ruth?
