Newspaper Whitewashes Council's Cover Up of Debate Over City Profile
Wow. The Janesville Gazette's latest article on the city profile issue doesn't even acknowledge the discussion council members had last week when the newspaper reported, fairly accurately I should add, on the council's reaction to a recruitment profile developed by an independent consultant firm hired to scout for a new city manager.
As described in my previous post, the recruitment firm offered an honest assessment of the city's deepening budgetary problems and declining morale exacerbated by the classwar agenda of Gov. Scott Walker.
As expected, not only did the Janesville City Council fully dewalkerize the recruitment firm's profile, but the Janesville Gazette, in what should have been an inquiring follow-up article, carries on as if that conversation or the article first reporting on it last week ...never existed.
Move along now. Nothing to see here.
