The ridiculous drama between Wally Clark and the City of Miami Springs made its way onto WSVN’s Help Me Howard.
As you probably know, Wally Clark was denied entrance into the City’s Daddy and Daughter Dance, an event Wally Clark has covered for several years. According to Wally Clark, he was uninvited from the event as he is not associated with a publication.
If true, we believe that’s a bunch of Malarkey to put it kindly. Clark continues to shoot photos for the community, a passion he’s enjoyed for decades. His work is enjoyed by thousands.
The city should have just let the man take his photos. What was the big deal letting him take pictures? The city should encourage the promotion of the event. Everyone in our little town knows that Wally’s the best local photographer. What was the big deal?
According to Howard Finkelstein, “a government agency has a right to only allow credentialed media.” My question is, who’s a credentialed media?
Nevertheless, Finkelstein added, “if Wally can prove the policy was used to target him, then the city may have crossed the legal line.”
According to the report, Wally claims he will now sue the City of Miami Springs.
What do you think? Did the City of Miami Springs blow this out of proportion by not allowing Wally to shoot photos at the dance?
Let us know what you think.
