I can't remember why I asked. But about nine years ago, I invited readers to share their opinion of Karina Shagren, then a reporter at Channel 4.
She must have made some sort of impression on me.
Though I had not thought of that question as fishing for bashing remarks, some readers apparently did. They wrote and called to express their displeasure. I printed some of that testy feedback.
Ms. Shagren, on the other hand, sent me a "Thanks for the shout out!" email. Maybe she was trying to make lemonade out of a potentially bad situation. I don't know.
In any event, I think I ran readers' answers in several columns, including this one from this date in 2005.
Here's some more on Karina (see last item).
