County Board Threatens Media - "Don't Promote Other Candidates"

Hello Yupette,

Interesting development at 2100 Clarendon Boulevard. The County Board-controlled public information office is telling the local media to not promote non-Democratic candidates "or else."

"Or else" means the media may face several unappetizing consequences as the result of featuring Republicans and third party candidates, ranging from having to pay for press releases to competing newspapers beginning publication in Arlington.
