A non story

Stuff reports:

Hollywood mogul is keeping silent on whether he will keep up a tradition of letting the public have access to a “very special” lake he owns.

Keeping silent! Is he refusing to answer? Has he denied a request?

He called on Cameron to allow anyone to enjoy the lake. “James Cameron . . . has a very strong environmental ethic and we need to experience these special places to have a better relationship with that natural world.”

He had not contacted him directly, because his main interest had been whether Cameron was under any legal access obligation, but he was now considering doing so.

What a non story. Ask Cameron if you can have access, and then maybe it’s a story if he says no (which is his right). But a story based on someone wondering aloud over whether or not he would say no is silly.
