It’s time for a Left of Lansing “Short” for this Friday, June 16, 2023.
Wood-TV in Grand Rapids became the news this week when a leaked internal memo showed how its assistant news director ordered reporters to do fewer LGBTQ+ stories during the rest of PRIDE month.
But because those stories didn’t sit well with some of the station’s snowflake right wing audience, reporters were told to lighten-up on the amount of stories related to LGBTQ+ events in the Grand Rapids area.
This is the goal of the right wing: stifle free speech, expression, and the freedom of the press to report the actual news.
