"Most Dangerous Cities" Morgan Quitno Press Fraud

Morgan Quitno Fraud

The recent untimely "Most Dangerous Cities" report by Morgan Quitno Press has been found to be nothing more than a publicity stunt by founder Scott Morgan. In a recent interview, Morgan admits that his
Report is only a publicity stunt to sell his personal books. On October 30, the Associated Press released the 2006 report raising much criticism from cities listed both good and bad in the report. Now, after much scrutiny and investigations, Morgan acknowledges that his reporting is flawed.

"Report: Morgan Quitno "study" misused FBI information which lead

interesting report to say the least. We have debated Morgan Quitno's rankings of the most dangerous US cities ad nauseum on this forum for years.
Now it seems some of the arguements we have made about his reports appearing to be bogus have a hint of truth to it. Thanks for the video matguy7070.

PS: A moderator should move this to city discussions or current events.

It was actually funny to watch that video. Fretting about some stupid ranking published by some independent publisher. What an over-reaction, this should have never been made a segment, wasnt there a murder to report?
