First ISU refused to give me a document I requested by FOIA claiming it was exempt. See this story
Next they gave me the document but redacted the part I wanted: See THIS story
Some light finally went on at ISU and they decided the document in the story above is NOT exempt from FOIA. Obviously somebody wanted to keep secret why RC McBride was handed the manager’s job at WGLT without it ever being posted. Why? Because they thought they could!
Today I received an un-redacted copy of the document in the 2nd story above.
Below is the previously redacted section:
If ISU actually believed the answer was yes, why didn’t they release the document the first time I asked?
My hope now is that President Trump de-funds NPR. Why do we need taxpayer-funded media? That’s what Russia, Cuba, and China do.
America already has media willing to kiss up to government – nationally and locally. WGLT needs to pay for itself without ISU assistance or go away.
NPR’s end of the road was their latest 4 hour documentary in which they failed to interview ANYBODY they blamed for the current “Divided America”. It’s pure propaganda attempting to write their version of history . See it here
Propaganda needs to die, de-funding NPR is a start.
