…. in the Crowsnest Pass.
As most people are probably aware by now, having read this past week’s Promoter and Herald newspapers, my PRESS RELEASE announcing my candidacy for mayor in our upcoming municipal election has finally been published (although near or in the back section of both papers, without fanfare or commentary, and treated by them almost as a ‘begrudging’ inclusion, and non-event).
I guess I should be happy because at least it was finally published, but not before my having had to meet with the editors of both papers and discussing common sense and fairness issues, with them doing the right thing with respect to this matter, as discussed previously in my earlier post below:
I’m sure our media’s performance and fanfare will only improve once candidates more to their liking come forward. In the meantime, those of us who do not measure up (in their minds) and/or who have been critical of their past and continuing adversarial bent and manipulations, will have to settle for being placed at the back of the bus… out of sight and out of mind, so to speak. :-(
But be warned media people, like Rosa Parks (the mother of the freedom movement) we will not go quietly. We will act defiantly against those MEDIA who would oppress us.
WE SHALL OVERCOME!!
On October 18th, vote John Prince for Mayor
…contrary to the usual image of the news media as cantankerous, obstinate, and ubiquitous in their search for truth and defense of justice, in their actual practice they defend the economic, social, and political agendas of the privileged groups that dominate domestic society, the state, and the global order.
