Legitimate News Source

posted by bud prevost in Democrats, Le Roy, county legislature.

I am not sure if you are aware of this Howard, but the LeRoy Democratic Committee jumped all over the issue concering Jay Grasso and his posting on your sight under assumed names.

In this past week's Pennysaver, the LDC added a flyer describing what happened several months ago, even using the "sock puppet" definition. I just found it interesting that the LDC realizes the Batavian is a legitamite and viable news source for Batavia and Genesee county. No longer does the "Daily Snooze" hold the title of Genesee's only news.

I knew this was coming from a couple of different sources. While I appreciate the Democrats taking The Batavian seriously as a news source for their campaign pieces, I don't want to come across as endorsing the use of material from The Batavian by either political party for what might be termed a negative political ad. I can't control what either party does, but I should stay out of it. For that reason, I'm not going to put this on the home page.

I'm glad to hear you say that Howard. That's why I took the time to recognize this. While initially I questioned the flyer, it is no different than any political smearing done in traditional election times. Kudos buddy

If The fact that Jerome Grasso performed his "sock puppet show" on this site makes it a fact. It ranks as the second most e-mailed story topic on this site. All the LDC did was present the facts to the people of Le Roy. Smear? Mr. Grasso smeared himself.
