It’s been a volatile half a year for Deschutes County’s new D.A. Patrick Flaherty. The local newspaper has run several negative articles on him and Flaherty hasn't made himself very accessible to the media to refute them. Flaherty did sit down and talk with Bend Broadband's Dave Jones about his acrimonious relationship with the Bulletin. He says the newspaper is more interested in being critical of him than reporting on recent cases, such as the Middlekauff murder trial: “That was just barely covered at all. Instead they were running so called profiles on me. I believe if I had a better relationship with the Bulletin it would have gotten the sort of attention it deserved.” You can see the full interview with Patrick Flaherty all this week on "Talk of the Town." It airs every night through Friday at 10 p.m. on COTV.
