Attacking the J-T for not being a real newspaper is like attacking this blog for my spelling and grammar, you can but why bother? Nothing is going to change and you might as well do something far more useful like oh read a book, or take a walk.
Going back in time as I did when I talked to a Reporter from the Journal Times, our own Cara Spoto I recalled a story I was told time and again that before I moved here 1995 or so, before being printed the paper was sent to the Johnson’s for an O.K. that nothing they did not want made the paper, after all I was told we are or where a Company town, that is how most are run, no idea if its true or not but here is a good book on the subject of Company Towns:
Company Towns in the Americas: Landscape, Power, and Working-Class Communities
I find it very interesting how in Racine news does look like the City or say the Dickert Machine is trying to control the flow of information by such acts as:
Ending CAR 25 first by outsourcing to Sky Falls Media ending production of shows by myself and others not liked by our God Mayor John Dickert
Our Mayor Conducting a City Meeting?
To now after Sky Falls ended it’s involvement with CAR 25 the City is running it in such a fashion that well CAR 25 is dead other then City events (and few of them) taping of Public Comments at Cable Meetings nothing is being made how long before City Meets of any type will not be taped?
After all is not City Meetings best done in the Dark? Do we truly need to know who gets the Contacts for City Hall? Or who will make Bank on TIF 18? Of course not!
New City Worker ready for interview by Mayor of Racine ?
Even WRJN might be under the control of The Dicket Machine then too who bothers to tune that in?
Now Ms Cara Spoto did not believe the Story about J-Wax and I am not 100 % convinced myself who knows?
I will say this:
I find in very interesting that our Newspaper has yet to IMHO cover the following
CAR 25 and where is the equipment from the Station?
Who produced the 4th Parade and how much did it cost? Was Marsh-Merath a Sponsor for how much?
What happened to the $$ Chase Henrix paid to the City of Racine to sponsor CAR 25?
The City Hall Bathroom Scandal
The strange timing of stories over the RICO case, makes me think that the City of Racine is playing a huge part in what gets printed when by our fine Newspaper
Our Fearless Reporter Cara Spoto might find learning about Project Censored useful I did
