It's amazing to witness.
In Greensboro's case, my neighbors were convinced by the News and Record and the Rhino Times to vote for those who give some of everyone else's oranges to campaign contributors and 'friends of the elected' while lying to readers who think they are paying for honest information from non-biased sources.
And overwhelmingly most of my neighbors don't know how crooked our City's connected are as our local press is in on it.
Greensboro's incentives policy helping to spur private investment
From the comments;
Warren Buffett sponsored propaganda this is.
Without disclosing Don and Mayor Vaughan's methane take while Nancy served on the Solid Waste Committee, the News and Record comes out with an advocacy piece without an opposing view.
It's garbage journalism Joe Killian, Allen Johnson and Jeff Gauger.
Where is the chart showing those who received taxpayer benefits and their lawyers and/or agents who also contributed monies to the legislators who voted for the projects?
This kind of non-reporting shows a marriage of government, business and the press, which has become a fascist disease foisted upon our community with the News and Record's active, engaged complicity.
Not much different than Susan Ladd's pro whatever most of our City's elite wants her to be for.
You are promoting higher profits for a few connected businesses at the expense of competitors who didn't purchase some politicians down the street.
The News and Record isn't' a news outlet anymore, but a cheer leading squad for Greensboro's crony capitalists.
Saying Revolution Mills is for or in East Greensboro has been a great example of how you have misled your readers.
Still no reporting of the City's cost lowering exercise in their retirement plan, as it would hurt your benefactor.
Still nothing on Mike Barber's taxpayer take with First Tee of the Triad.
You support the initiatives of crooked politicians, which makes you crooked too.
This is like the article written without explaining to your readers that the City Council voted to borrow more money for the STPAC.
You didn't inform the public City Council decided to cover/guarantee $3.5 million yet to be donated by the private sector.
You didn't tell anyone the math Walker Sanders and Nancy Barakat Vaughan came up with was garbage, which it was/is, especially the extra VIP parking revenue utter nonsense.
You didn't inform the public most of the money committed to Say Yes Guilford is coming in over a series of years, even though they are going to start paying out next year, which appears to be unsustainable.
And we are headed into an economic decline. Remember when I told you in your parking lot of a recession within three years Allen Johnson?
Probably about time to re-remove the archives again, for the fourth time in recent history. That way, you can start all over again, before you start over again, again.
That's the new modern form of professional journalism.
Cover your tracks and most won't remember later anyway.
