Stakeholders plan business retention and expansion program

When a newspaper publishes an article that is a verbatim account of a media release, in this case by the Economic Development Commission, it really should tell readers that what they are reading is a media release, not a news article written by an independent journalist.

It’s unfortunate that this paper is simply becoming a mouthpiece for City Hall.
