Bryant Advocacy Group Cries Foul Over KLRT Report

Arkansas Business.com reports People for Bryant Schools is causing a stink over a story KLRT did concerning the proposed, now defeated, millage increase in the Bryant School District. AB.com says, Ed Trauschke, news director at KLRT, agreed that the wording was a little confusing but stands by the Sept. 17 report. Read the full story HERE.

It sounds good on paper, but KLRT doesn't have enough viewers to change anything. Not yet anyway, but they are making strides. I live in Bryant and there were lots of people campaigning everywhere against the millage increase. It was a successful grassroots effort to defeat a bill which should have passed. I would have voted for it if the increase has not been so much...it was too much of an increase...and no one factored in the increase revenues coming in from the increased population. It seemed out of proportion to me. Yes, increased population means more schools are needed, but that increase was too much at once....a one-cent tax increase would have passed in a New York minute.

You might be surprised at how many people are watching their 9:00 p.m. news rather than the other station's network programs at that time. As time goes on, more and more will be turning off the networks due to repeating the same old shows . . . and then re-runs.

KLRT has made the whole media market look like a bunch of plumbers. No wonder people don't trust media anymore. What's worse they will not admit the story was completely misleading.

It's HIS retoric, get it right.

Justin was the reporter. He correctly said that with an "assessed" value of 100,000 dollars, your mortgage payment would jump by a good amount. (I can't remember the exact amount, but it was more than 400 dollars.) The bill's supporters said it wasn't right, that Justin forgot to figure in the 80-percent cut that is in the formula. However, Justin didn't forget. An assessed value of a home is 20 percent of its actual value, or an 80 percent cut. The information was correct, even if the millage supporters didn't agree with it.
