ABOUT LETTERS THE JIMBOOMBA TIMES CHOSE NOT TO PUBLISH 2011-2012

AUGUST 14, 2012

IN RECENT WEEKS, IT HAS SEEMED ALMOST AS IF THE JT HAS JOINED GROWCOM!  EVERY LITTLE TRUTH-TWISTING MISSIVE A CERTAIN CEO SENDS TO THEM GETS PUBLISHED AND, SOMETIMES, RE-REPORTED ON ANOTHER PAGE. MEANWHILE RESIDENTS FIND THEIR OWN LETTERS ANSWERING THE RIDICULOUS CLAIMS BEING PEDDLED BY THESE SO-CALLED ‘FARMERS’ AND THEIR SUPPORTERS ARE RARELY PUBLISHED.  RECENT WEEKS HAS SEEN 2-3 LETTERS FROM THE ‘VILIFY THE RESIDENTS’ LOBBY TO ONE FROM OUR SIDE.  WE COULD EASILY BE FORGIVEN FOR BELIEVING THAT THE JT HAS ROLLED OVER IN THE FACE OF GROWCOM’S CORPORATE BULLYING, GIVEN THE UNBALANCED AND INFLAMMATORY FASHION IN WHICH THEY’VE LATELY CHOSEN TO REPORT ON THIS ISSUE.

THIS IS PART OF THE REASON WE HAVE SET UP THIS BLOG – TO ENSURE WE HAVE A RIGHT OF REPLY AND ARE NOT CENSORED BY NEWSPAPER EDITORS WHO OFTEN ADD SPIN, OR OMIT REPORTING THE OTHER SIDE JUST TO KEEP READERS READING AND ADVERTISERS ADVERTISING.  WE ARE DONE WITH SPIN!  THIS IS OUR HOME AND WE WANT THE TRUTH OF THIS SITUATION TO BE WIDELY DISSEMINATED IN THIS COMMUNITY.  IT SEEMED SUCH A WASTE TO LEAVE THESE LETTERS LANGUISHING ON MY HARD DRIVE, SO I’VE PUBLISHED THEM FOLLOWING THE ARTICLES THEY WERE RESPONDING TO IN THE ‘LOCAL MEDIA CATEGORY.

AT LEAST THEN SOMEONE ELSE MIGHT BE ABLE TO READ THEM AND GET A GLIMPSE OF THE TRUTH LYING LANGUISHING UNDERNEATH THE LIES BEING PEDDLED BY PEOPLE WHO ARE PAID TO PEDDLE THEM.
