UPDATE to this story: https://blnnews.com/2017/01/23/redistributing-your-wealth/
Since WGLT is National Public Radio, your federal tax dollars already fund them. They aren’t allowed to sell advertising, all they can do is “underwritten by” non-specific ads.
That doesn’t keep your local tax dollars from ending up in their pocket though. I received this information under the Freedom of Information Act:
All of the above get your money to operate. Heartland just raised your property taxes BIG. Downtown Bloomington Association was supposed to be self-sufficient years ago but Bloomington continues to give them money every month.
By the way, I had an interview scheduled with WGLT when I broke the Coliseum story. THEY cancelled it. Truth isn’t easy to swallow for some.
Let call this karma.
