Mainstream Complicit In Govt Audit Whitewash

February 15th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Stick with us – this is a long post with tons of screenshots to prove a point.

By 5:15 P.M. yesterday, it was clear that the mainstream media was – like we said – essentially ignoring the damaging state government audit released by Adam Edelen.

The Courier-Journal’s main page had absolutely no mention of the word audit:


And the Herald-Leader’s coverage was relegated to a tiny blurb about the personnel software issue:


In Louisville, there was nothing on WAVE3′s site:


Nothing on WHAS11′s site:


Nothing on WLKY’s site:


A tiny blurb, ten stories down at FOX41:


In Lexington, nothing at WKYT:


Nothing at WTVQ:


Nothing at WLEX18:


But you can see the gambling amendment was a hot story.

So it looks like Papaw’s whitewashing with gambling worked.

    Et voila! The detailed proof that self-censorship in KY is just as wide-spread as in some distant lands of “unbrave” and “unfree” like Syria or Russia. :)

    But seriously, shame on KY “mainstream” journalism and kudos to news sites like PageOneKY!
