Is WGLT attempting to deceive voters? Is their General Manager, who is on the ballot, behind it?
It’s corrupt enough WGLT controlled the debate with the Normal candidates, since RC McBride works for them, they should have recused themselves.
It gets worse! Karl Sila was not allowed to participate in the debate because he is a write-in candidate. WGLT also doesn’t mention on their website a blank line will be on the ballot: https://www.wglt.org/voter-guide-2019#stream/0
This is what the WGLT website shows:
What are voters supposed to think when they see this WGLT?
If voters get their news from WGLT they will be totally clueless! Nice job covering REAL news WGLT!
Maybe WGLT forgot a US Senator was elected as a write-in. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-elections-murkowski-idUSTRE6AG51C20101118
I thought the League of Women Voters was all about making sure every legal voter gets to vote. Information on who to vote for must not be that important – they co-sponsored the debates with WGLT that didn’t include Karl Sila.
Did RC McBride set the rules for the debate? He is the General Manager! Are we supposed to believe he had NOTHING to do with who participated and what questions were asked?
WGLT has proven they aren’t non-partisan or fair by their actions. This is just more proof of why a media person (McBride) should not be an elected official. The voters in Normal are being manipulated by WGLT.
Send them a message – you don’t need to vote for three, but these are the candidates who will stop the insanity of Uptown:
Stan Nord has an event tonight:
Please join us at Medici on Thursday, March 21st from 4-6 pm. I will be there to answer questions and to listen to your thoughts on how I can help better our community.
Kevin Lancaster will also be in attendance to talk about his and his father’s experience with our local Honor Flights. This program was created solely to honor America’s Veterans for their sacrifices. They fly our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at the memorials dedicated to them. Without the service and sacrifice of Veterans, we would not be able to enjoy the freedoms we experience now.* (No donation necessary from our Veterans, you have done enough already.)
