When Journalism Goes Bad
Perhaps if Tom Hylton’s hand-picked members of his “Neighborhood Schools Team” posse voted to allow PCTV to record school board meetings (instead of them voting against it in 2008), the current video garbage du jour over at The Fishwrap would never have happened.
But since ace reporter Evan Brandt was farting around and not paying attention to the entire conversation that escalated into a very vocal discussion at last Wednesday’s Finance/Personnel Committee meeting, we’ll never know what contributing factors led up to the event.
If PCTV had been recording Wednesday night’s meeting, the conversation would have been aired for the public to view in its entirety, instead of select edited snippets of the event being posted online at The Fishwrap totally out of context.
And have you read the online comments over at The Fishwrap today? It’s all the same old swine dancing and prancing in their own feces hyperventilating over the faux euphoria of having caught red handed the so-called horrendous behavior of one of Tom Hylton’s former “Neighborhood Schools Team” candidates.
How do you like that fact that Hylton and his scream victim ValGal were the only two members of the board to vote against last night’s budget? We’re going to address the white elephant in the room: Tom Hylton is a total joke. He knew damn well that everyone was going to vote for the budget, so who cares if two board members vote the other way…because the budget was going to pass regardless…and Tom would still come out smelling like roses (or so he erroneously believes). We guess Tom is only thinking about his election chances (cough…cough…NO WAY IN HELL…cough…cough) in two years when his term is next up on the chopping block. Oh we forgot…Tom Hylton is only thinking of the voters. Of course! That’s why he votes the way he does. For the benefit of our children. God bless Tom Hylton!
