The local left and the local right can’t agree on much, but one thing is for sure: Both sides panned a local “conversation” focused on “fake news” and questioned the League of Women Voters’ credibility for hosting such an amateur presentation.
The Scooper editor didn’t even show up: his voice was heard through a computer:
George Rebane: “Jo Ann and I had never attended a more lame, information free, and sophomoric presentation as we witnessed last night. The LWV used to be a real heads up organization and source of non-partisan voter information before its joining the progressives. No more.
“About half an hour into the thing, people of the Right and Left started walking out, as people realized that no one on stage knew what they were talking about. And we still don’t have any idea why Mr Finkelstein was invited to participate. Full disclosure – it pains me to admit that we were not the first to leave. ”
Good going, League of Women Voters!
