How much economic impact has this cost our state?
How many jobs have been lost?
How many others not from here think less of North Carolina now?
This should have been done differently on both sides.
We have made an amazing ass of ourselves.
It will cost our children.
The adults in the room have caused harm.
Still no reports from our press as to who has paid how much to whom to back the legislation.
Lies of omission as misinformation exponentially rises through the news cycle, while anyone who looks like they may not sell enough tickets to be profitable cancels in mediocre defiance splattered across the pages, increasing name recognition and followings.
Can you blame them?
Self inflicted wound this is, while the News and Record won't say how much the folks who wrote a letter backing DGI have received from City taxpayers, how much they have contributed to City Council members, that David Parish is on the selection committee and a Zack reference, that DGI hasn't publicly come up with where they are going to get the 'other' money, and won't release information requests concerning the subject for over a half a year.
Margaret Moffett and Steven Doyle won't report the news.
Jeff Sykes reported the David Parish connection and more information than our paper of record, and now some of the folks who enjoy skimming money from hired legislators aren't going to be publicly identified after a publicized letter in support of more corruption.
That means the press is either not read enough in Yes Weekly's case, or just as corrupt as the gentlemen on the take who are lobbying for their boy toy.
