I was introduced to Sheetal three years ago. I had an ‘issue’ – I won’t go into it here – and Sheetal was suggested to me as fiercely determined investigative reporter, who could help me by turning the eye of the media on the issue(s) I was pursuing.
Well, all I can say is, ‘Wow!’ and ‘Wow!’ again…and again…and again.
It’s not so much her determination that I grew to respect, though there is that, of course; it is her absolute commitment to journalistic integrity.
Add to that her understanding and compassion, and you have a mix that personifies what is best in the media.
The issue(s) I first spoke to her about have not yet been resolved, but that is not a problem for me – at least as far as Sheetal is concerned. I trust her completely; I know she will stand up for me if/when it counts, and I see her as a model of what true journalism is all about.
If you are undecided, or just vaguely curious, vote for Sheetal because you’ll be voting for a media person who will always tell you the truth, not just as she sees it, but as she’s researched it, checked it, researched it some more and checked it again, and she’ll only say it if it clicks with her principles.
You go, girl!
