Newspaper refuses to report the whole story
It is sad that our media in the Lehigh Valley is so slanted. Consider that whenever people such as ousted Northampton County Councilman Ron Angle or County Executive John Stoffa play up to the media, they get headlines.
However, when we have a historic moment, such as the collection of 23,000-plus signatures to put a question on the ballot, and the signatures are verified, and the question survives four lawsuits, and the question is placed on the ballot, and the question passes by a 3-1 margin, there are no victorious headlines! Why?
The media, as I understand it, is supposed to stay neutral in reporting any story, but not in the Lehigh Valley, where the media plays favorites. It is evident that they took a side, and it was not the side of the people. But that’s OK because the people were not seeking publicity, they were seeking justice.
Today, the media again is showing their slant, failing to report on a possible scandal that may remove the county executive from office. The act of using taxpayers’ funds to further personal goals is illegal, and has resulted in the incarceration of people such as state legislators Jane Orie, Bill DeWeese and John Perzel.
Evidence has been provided to the county controller and county council which clearly shows Stoffa used taxpayer money to sue the taxpayers, and worst, to support two private citizens in private litigation. But in the Lehigh Valley, the media have purposely chosen to suppress the story. Why?
Take Note: People don’t buy a biased media!
