bingo shoddy town talk 'reporting'

heres another great example of shoddy half-assed reporting by the alexandria daily town talk. so, they run this "news item" which is in reality nothing but a press release from the city of alexandria. if memory serves this ordinance was first proposed by councilman myron lawson which that in itself should send up a red flag and trigger some commonsense questions such as why is this ordinance being proposed? why isnt there a copy of the proposed ordinance? why didnt the town talk contact anyone on the city council and/or the administration for a statement? why didnt the town talk go out and ask people that are currently running charity bingo games what they thought about this new ordinance?

all the town talk does is serve as the marketing/public relations arm of various governmental entities when they print garbage like this posing as news. what the town talk is really doing is saying that ordinances like this are a done deal.
