Here's the headline for the article I'm referring to:
Droves brave blustery weather for first Waterfront Day in Port Angeles
Here's the first photo accompanying the article:
I don't see any droves there, do you? I see five adults, and one kid.
Here's the first line from the story itself:
Crowds of visitors showed up Sunday at the inaugural Waterfront Day, and left asking for more after a behind-the-scenes look at the city's Port facilities.
Here's the second photo accompanying the article:
Do you see any crowds? I see the same five adults and one child.
"We had no idea what to expect," said Holly Hairell, Port of Port Angeles public relations manager and organizer for the event.
Hairell said attendance figures for the day were not yet available Sunday.
Here's the third photo accompanying the article, to give you a further idea of the attendance figures:
I see one woman, one dog, and the guy who owns the boat. Even the kid has disappeared. No wonder Holly Hairell didn't have those figures available yet, eh?
I'm trying to make two points here. One is that the PDN lies, lies, lies. There are no "droves" or "crowds" on display here - other than in the twisted text. Actual crowds are, you know, big things, easy to spot and easy to get photos of. Where's the proof, PDN?
The second point is timing. Lookie here, this event happened yesterday and the PDN has already got an article about it in the paper! Wow! That's pretty quick turnaround, especially for such a nonessential flop of an event. So why does it take them days and days and sometimes even weeks to get articles concerning local government affairs of real importance into their slimy little rag?
Oh yeah, that's why. Because they're a slimy little rag. And this is why it will be very, very interesting to see how the PDN responds to having PAPA TV around to (potentially) push out more facts, more quickly.
Good luck, PAPA, and - once again - shame on you, PDN.
