Yesterday we all learned the Coliseum lost a lot of money. See this story: https://blnnews.com/2015/06/12/lap-dog-media-falls-for-coliseum-report/
The City of Bloomington put out their own version. The below was emailed to anybody who signed up to receive their News Update.
Notice anything funny? Like the meat of the story is buried behind a link? Any casual reader might believe the Coliseum is doing great. It gets even worse if the link is clicked: http://www.cityblm.org//index.aspx?page=18&recordid=2165
The almost $500,000 loss isn’t mentioned until the FIFTH paragraph.
The Bart Rogers bull is in the 6th paragraph.
I’m sure the City knows a LOT of links are never clicked and, even if they are, a LOT of readers never read to the bottom of anything.
Burying the truth?
Maybe this masterpiece of deception is the work of the Communication Director that doesn’t communicate.
Vladimir? Vladimir? Is that you?
