Satterfield Deserves Equal And Fair Election Coverage

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Guy Satterfield is a legitimate candidate for Chattanooga mayor. He is a conservative Republican who will eliminate wasteful spending and return fiscal sanity to our city government. He has over 30 years experience working for the city and knows the details of its operations.  

Satterfield has proposed specific actions he would take when elected and believes that city officials should serve the taxpayers. Guy Satterfield will be a great mayor and is truly worthy of front page news coverage.

Unfortunately, the Times Free Press has become a propaganda machine for the Berke campaign. The paper has published several articles and letters on Berke but few on the other candidates. The Monday edition has a front page article praising Berke for his state Senate experience that attempts to persuade readers Berke’s time in the state Senate is relevant to governing our city. The article smells of political cronyism as it quotes some Republican lawmakers in an attempt to persuade conservative voters that Berke is something other than a liberal Democrat.     

The Times Free Press should be ashamed of their reporting and coverage of the mayoral election thus far.  It makes a mockery of their motto to: “To Give the News Impartially, Without Fear or Favor”.
