At the Guilford County Commissioners meeting on March 4, 2010 during the time where each commissioner gets to comment for everyone to see Chairman Skip Alston had plenty to say about the Greensboro News & Record the video is embedded below. At around the 30 second mark is where the chairman say that the Greensboro News and Record treats him like their" whippin boy". Then later Skip Alston says that the guilford beat writer Joe Killian in his years being a county commissioner has never met someone as unethical as him.It also seem like the chairman also has issues with the News & Record farther up the ladder of seniority.
A lot has been talked about over the last few weeks about this back and forth between the county commissioners Skip Alston , Linda Shaw and the News & Record writer Joe Killian. The Rhino Times has a article out today on this issue with a title "Commissioners Blast N&R" CLICKHERE
The video last about 3 minutes and 49 seconds but there is a lot to see in this video. This is why local bloggers can fill in the blanks because the News & Record probably doesn't want to report about this and the Rhino Times online edition probably has never embedded a video to save it's life.
So have some popcorn and enjoy Guilford Chairman Skip Alston vs. Greensboro News & Record.
