GEOFFREY WANSELL considers himself a “reporter?” To site “Awfulplasticsurgery.com” as a source and “in the words of one leading plastic surgeon” and “one Hollywood insider explained”… these aren’t sources, they are “veil thin” references that probably only exist on “ask jeeves” or “Google.” To speculate about drug use, alcoholic binges and staying in bed all day, that’s all baseless without something tangible and concrete. This is a mean spirited attack. It’s like reading a general outline, an article researched via the internet, with innocuous sources to create something vindictive and spiteful to titillate the reader. My father always told me, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” And my journalism professor in college said three things are paramount to any story, “the source, the source, the source.” Highlight the career of someone deceased. It's shameful and disgusting what you've written here. I hope your obituary isn't as acerbic.
