Sinclair Broadcast Group forthright
Lynn Ashby’s Apr. 21 jeremiad about “ultra-conservative” media was certainly rich: Talk about a frog calling somebody ugly. At least Sinclair Broadcast Group was forthright in directing its news anchors, its employees, to read on-air a statement explaining coverage policy — transparency in the spotlight. Lynn’s leftist mainstream media inadvertently revealed its surreptitious mission after the 2000 election when Christiane Amanpour was taped scolding a “journalist” convention, irately asking how they possibly could have allowed George W. Bush to have been elected president. The reporter’s job, Christiane, is not to allow or disallow anything. It is to excavate and present information as completely and objectively as possible with attribution. But observe how Houston’s monopoly daily paper does not run any positive news reportage about President Trump or the GOP; its systemic bias consistently concocts always the most negative slant. As for mainstream media personnel’s criticism of Sinclair’s “robot” policy presentation, they’ve perhaps not heard the radio montages wherein anchors/reporters from numerous Democratic Party organs (NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC etc.) all employ miraculously identical verbiage in hit pieces against some Republican. Jeepers, Wally, they’re not even working for the same company, reading a management memo — but they all do suffer from the same debilitating ideological infection.
GOMO officially files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
Agreed. Monies should be returned, but not much hope of that happening with a chapter 11, reorganization bankruptcy filing. The money will transfer (what’s left of it) to a reorganized group and amount collected going forward will probably be reduced (considerably, I hope) and business will be as usual. No support for the neighbors – only the lawyers involved. The neighborhood had no say in the decision to file for bankruptcy. Handled very poorly.
Good riddance to GOMO.
This is what you get when you allow neighbors suing other neighbors with other people’s money.
GOMO lost me when they allowed its own board member to build a “illegal stairway as far as city of Houston is concerned” to the member’s 3rd story home.
NOMO GOMO indeed, you won’t be missed.
I think most want the transfer fee lowered significantly. Too much is being collected. Originally it was collected to protect deed restrictions, but when they ended up with so much money and no one to sue, they amended the bylaws as adopted by the board of directors on November 5, 2002, article 7, 7.05 to say they could spend monies on the neighborhood. It was not originally collected for that purpose and GOMO amended the bylaws to be able to spend it on the neighborhood as they saw fit. There was a campaign at that time to reduce the amount collected, but GOMO ignored it. Lawyers were not hired by opposing side.
