Questions arise about WBOC's Harim coverage

September 27, 2013

I hope some of the public had the pleasure of watching WBOC's 6 p.m. newscast Sept. 25, as it was in the public’s behalf concerning the 700 jobs that  "alien" Harim's chicken processing plant promised (another lie).  They showed the information on the EB-5 with copies of the FOIAs we received from the agencies (which were held for over a month).

This information showed only 25 percent of the jobs were for Delawareans, and their pay rate they said, "Was an "average," with management and employees calculated together.

This information was showed on the air, but  funny how after that aired, it was pulled from the website and didn't air at 10 p.m. But on the 11 p.m. showing, it was totally modified and didn't explain any of the factual EB-5 information that we supplied them with.

We would like to know why, when we give them facts, accurate figures, and the information to back this up, to not air the truth, as people have the right to know.

What happened to freedom of speech in proving the truth?  Do the government and the politicians own the rights of the public?  I guess their damage control counts more than our facts!  That is just wrong.  We will have our day though - you wait and see, as our group "Protecting Our Indian River grows stronger and stronger every day.
