Why would the Rhino and the GN&R bury possibly two of the most important stories of the week?

This was interim City Attorney Tom Pollard's last meeting,
but the council did not name a new interim city attorney.

John Hammer
Last sentence of a relatively long article
that probably deserved a headline

Why hasn't John written about the noise ordinance
that many of his readers care about?

Are John's Real Estate advertisers and the Greensboro Coliseum
more important than his night club advertisers
and many of his readers who go downtown?

The Foundation is financing most task force work,
although the city will pay some costs,
Foundation president Walker Sanders said.

"A lie of omission is to remain silent
when ethical behavior calls for one to speak up.

A lie of omission is a method of deception and duplicity
that uses the technique of simply remaining silent
when speaking the truth would significantly alter
the other person's capacity to make an informed decision."

The Lie of Omission

Shouldn't City Council Vote
to spend money on a propaganda campaign?
