In order to avoid any perception of hypocrisy or being seen as having a double-standard, the Chronicle-Independent is reporting that a home in Kirkover Hills belonging to Editor Martin L. Cahn is in foreclosure.
“In performing the day-to-day duties of this newspaper, our responsibility is to publish the problems sometimes encountered by public figures. While, technically, Cahn is not a true public figure by the definition of the term, we do recognize that he is possibly perceived to be a public figure by virtue of his being the editor of the Chronicle-Independent,” Publisher Mike Mischner said. “Therefore, we are reporting this situation, which is a matter of public record.”
“My family and I have been through some financial difficulties recently, which we are in the process of dealing with,” Cahn said.
