LTM Shuts Down Comments, Starts Writing Pro-LCRC Puff Pieces
I actually thought the Loudoun Times Mirror was making some good strides recently. Then they just about shut down their comments section by requiring registration and pre-clearance of comments, and then start putting out pro-LCRC GOBGN articles at a brisk pace. First we had a glowing article about Dick Black writing a letter urging state funding for a road project, and now we have a puff piece about John Whitbeck. Again. After the last article about him winning the relatively obscure 10th District Republican Committee Chairmanship went haywire in comments. But given that Whitbeck’s new Communications Chair David D’Onofrio has always had a super cozy relationship of undetermined status it isn’t too surprising that the LTM would print whatever D’Onofrio wants. More on that later.
