On January 14, 2020 I received a tip that WGLT sent a FOIA to the Town of Normal for all communication regarding Stan Nord’s W. College property. I then FOIA’d WGLT’s FOIA.
On January 22, 2020 WGLT did this story:
The letter WGLT used in their second story on January 31, 2020 was NOT in the FOIA: https://blnnews.com/2020/02/01/fake-news-wglt-2/
WGLT did receive 2 emails in their FOIA that Stan Nord wrote, both prove Stan is about bringing new business to town without taxpayer incentives:
Why did WGLT do two stories that mostly ignored the economic opportunities Stan Nord is bringing to Normal?
Is it because only the Town is allowed to do economic development?
Is it because WGLT is Normal’s propaganda arm?
WGLT could make amends by investigating the other businesses Stan has talked to about locating in Normal. Let’s just say he won’t be sending them to Pam Reece anymore.
