You already know R.C McBride is the General Manager of WGLT radio and he is a Trustee on the Normal Town Council:
If that isn’t enough to question the integrity of WGLT reporting, here’s more:
McBride is also a precinct committeeman for the McLean County Democrat Party. It’s his job to get people in his precinct to the polls to vote! Who is he telling them to vote for?
Look at the local news on the WGLT website: http://wglt.org/news
Look at the State news: http://wglt.org/term/illinois
Notice anything about the stories they cover? Any conservative voices?
WGLT is PUBLIC RADIO located on the campus of Illinois State University.
Taxpayers are paying RC McBride to control the news, Illinois State University made that possible by not conducting a search before hiring McBride: https://blnnews.com/2017/01/20/isu-avoids-a-lawsuit/
Yes folks, fake news does exist. Search WGLT.org for Mike Madigan – it’s been awhile since his name was mentioned in a story. Of course none of the stories blame him for destroying Illinois.
WGLT did do some stories on non-profits haven’t trouble helping people. The STATE is to blame, not the guy blocking reforms, passing budgets that spend more money than the state takes in, and tax increases. It sounds just like the local government!
Yes, it’s the State’s fault.
The Illinois Policy Institute just reported 195,000 college students from 2000-2014 have ditched Illinois for college in other states. https://www.illinoispolicy.org/illinois-has-lost-195000-millennial-college-students-since-2000/
Since ISU and WGLT are directly affected, that should be news. Maybe today.
Side note to local Republicans: You are losing local elections because you can’t fill precinct committeeman slots. Every precinct on the Democrat website is filled. It might help if you took a stand on something, anything! McLean County is already in big trouble with Madigan wannabes running both cities. The local GOP is doing nothing to stop the decline. Start by kicking liberals out of the party!
