Yesterday WJBC read the Melanie Spellmeyer-ISU-Central Catholic update story on my website. They read the original story too, but never reported on it. The story only became important to them when Dan Brady got involved. It probably helped that his funeral home advertises on WJBC.
See their story here: HERE
Totally lost in the story is the kids that were threatened by Melanie Spellmeyer. The WJBC angle focuses on Dan Brady. Of course they never mentioned where they got the story.
This morning it got worse when the 2 morning hosts discussed the story. Scott Laughlin acted like he only knew what WJBC is reporting, Patti Penn blamed the kids – they had to have done something bad to be told they can’t wear Trump apparel. Maybe Patti is biased since her kids go to U-High.
Patti: The kids were there to cheer their girl’s team to a State Championship. The kids did nothing wrong. Do you have Trump Derangement Syndrome too?
Facts matter to WJBC, but only the facts the elected and their advertisers tell them.
Yes the clueless live among us – unfortunately they are the local media.
