The local press needs to decide if they are media or propaganda machines for Tari Renner.
The people behind the Facebook page attacking Kevin Lower are Renner supporters. This is a tweet from one of them proving the connection to Renner:
That tweet is moderate, I’ve got dozens of profanity laced tweets which is why they are largely ignored on Twitter. They moved to Facebook where WJBC gave them a bigger platform. WJBC can see more of their attack comments by reading their own Facebook story.
If the media wants to use these vile people as a source for news, they are only discrediting themselves. One of them commented here they have more attacks on Kevin planned.
Evidently policies don’t matter in this election since Renner can’t run on his record of raising numerous taxes and adding $47 million to the budget while usurping capitalism by subsidizing businesses he prefers. Economic Development isn’t picking winners and losers. The media ignores that fact.
If Renner doesn’t call off his attack dogs I will show everybody who these Renner supporters are! If the media wants to play the FAKE NEWS game by reporting their twisted ideology, I will expose them too. It looks like WJBC is the worst offender so far. This can be a civil election based on facts or it can get very uncivil. The choice is up to the media. These losers can post anything they want. If the media reports what they say as fact they prove they really are FAKE NEWS.
Maybe the media should ask questions about Tari’s campaign contributions. What do they expect for their money? https://www.elections.il.gov/CampaignDisclosure/CommitteeDetail.aspx?id=rENAffSi%2b3TqPmVfcWLMWA%3d%3d
