Posted yesterday by WGLT reporter Ryan Denham:
File this one under local comedy.
The reporter is upset that Cities 92.9 veers into opinion reporting rather than straight news. Keep in mind the WGLT General Manager RC McBride used to have a seat on the Normal Town Council until he was defeated for re-election. RC now sits on the Normal Planning Commission – appointed by Chris Koos.
So, WGLT’s General Manager not only makes news he reports his version of the news!
Left leaning media really hates competition. Truth sneaks out occasionally when media doesn’t all come from the same canned sources. Of course the left leaning media ignores facts hoping their consumers never hear truth.
WGLT needs to lean a little more right and fairly report occasionally. A recent survey showed:
Read the comments on the Facebook to the story WGLT did about BlnNews being suspended, they prove the above statement. Here’s one from a defeated Normal Council candidate:
AJ is obviously not a reader or he would know I don’t “live” in Ellsworth. He also doesn’t know I post links to everything I write. I use government’s own words as proof. AJ, you are one of those uniformed liberals by choice. I appreciate you proving it.
Denham’s article is full of debunked talking points, but since WGLT lives in their tribe bubble, they promote being uniformed.
This sentence is in the article as a quote: The smart stations, he said, will invest in local content, even newsgathering.
That summarizes why Barry Reilly will no longer talk to Cities 92.9 Ryan. Cities has proof Reilly tried to get School Board candidate, Fitzgerald Sameday, to remove himself from the ballot, called the employer of a public commenter in an attempt to get her fired, and kept social media posts on other commenters. Isn’t interfering in an election a crime Ryan? Are you going to do some “newsgathering” or just bomb throwing? (There is more Ryan, going to look for it?) The CRT isn’t taught point is hilarious.
WGLT reporting is still pushing January 6th as an insurrection even thought the FBI admitted it wasn’t. They don’t care Pelosi rigged her investigation, 14000 hours of video still hasn’t been released, and at least two men seen on video urging the crowd to enter the capital haven’t been charged. Leftist media doesn’t care that “plants” were in the crowd or that police were seen on video ushering people inside.
Is WGLT still reporting Trump got help from Russia to win in 2016?
Ryan, go to BlnNews and search for WGLT. I have numerous stories of Normal officials “feeding” stories to you.
Here is what conservatives know: Anyone paid by government MUST tow the government line or lose their funding or jobs. That applies to WGLT, professors, scientists, doctors, and more.
Conservative media actually investigates which is why the “Right” is more open and informed.
WGLT can prove that point by asking their readers one question: How many unarmed blacks were shot by police last year. Their answers won’t be close to right.
Is WGLT merely jealous of Cities 92.9? Ryan has no REAL news to report? I’ve got a large stack of stuff I haven’t been able to get to if you need some Ryan!
