The original reporting by a reporter undercover as a homeless man was done by Walter Jacobson, a journalist in Chicago.
Here are a few of my sources. I could list many more.
However, I stand by the facts that Ms. Musgrave disputes (“Homeless criticism not fact,” Sun City Independent, Sept. 15, 2021). One of the Walter Jacobson stories is listed below first and includes a photo of the reporter in disguise as a homeless person. My only error was in remembering the story as longer ago than it took place. It was in 1991.
Thank you for the opportunity to set the record straight.
