A. WHO at Danville Express is promoting and ADVERTISING this type of liberal agenda meetings?
Why is there no listing of the AUTHOR of this "story?"
Come out from behind your cloak!
If a non-staff person (a reader) initiates an article, then that person's id "handle" gets listed for sure. Why not for articles presented by staff members?
(I realize that not all articles presented by a staff member may neccessarially represent their own private views, but somehow they are choosing one article over another to present and some of us readers would like to see those patterns, if any, more clearly.)
Let us unveil the true bias of each of your Journalists (so that we may more easily and quickly understand the "context" behind each piece presented).
B. Would you care to describe the process for how it is that particular "stories" or "calendar events" are selected for presentation/focus in the DE (Danville Express)?

How is this any different than the posts regarding other meetings and events (some that charge a fee)that are throughout this forum? Unless all will be restricted, this shouldn't be either.

Wonderful ... I don't plan to attend, but glad to know such activities exist in my neighborhood.

What is the whining all about, it already says posted by Editor. It is not liberal or tea-nut agenda, just an activity that people are free to read or move on.

Agree.... This is very confusing, but the title grabbed me and I am sure others who are active in their communities. I thought there would be more information, which is understandable, when I clicked, but I am very disappointed as there is NO DEPTH to this "Article." and it is being "Promoted" by the Staff ~

You might as well have said "Give me $20 and I will give you a place to sit" ~ Very Odd ~

Don't miss out on the discussion!
