Brian Clarey Admits Billy Jones Was Right

It was 5 years ago that I first stated this website. Then I used the name, East Greensboro Performing Arts Center. It was in direct opposition to the effort by then Mayor Robbie Perkins to build the downtown performing arts center.

Among the supporters of the performing arts center were Brian Clarey who was at that time editor of Yes Weekly. He used his position and his power as the editor to promote the project just as if he were paid to do so.

Later, upon founding Triad City Beat, Clarey and company relentlessly promoted the Tanger Center for the Performing Arts publishing one puff piece after another and never asking the tough questions. For 5 years we put up with Clarey's bullshit.

But something changed.

You see, yesterday, in an article titled Calling BS: The Tanger Center groundbreaking, Brian Clarey wrote:

"It made for a nice photo op. But sand wasn’t the only thing they were shoveling."

And folks, if there's anyone who knows bullshit, Clarey is the man. He's pitched more BS than anyone I know.

So Brian, can you describe the taste of crow?
