    Metro TALK

    OUSD Censors School Board Broadcast
    The talk about the near physical show-down at the September 14th Orange Unified School Board meeting between an emotional Trustee John Ortega (a large Orange County Deputy Sheriff) and “push your buttons” Trustee Steve Rocco (a small skinny eccentric) is true.

    Yea we know you’ve watched the latest OUSD Board Meeting cable cast on your local cable station and seen nothing unusual in the meeting besides Rocco’s rants at the beginning. Well that’s all you’re going to see because the fiery ending has been cut out, reportedly on order from OUSD Superintendent Thomas Godley himself. That’s right all the following was cut: Rocco’s accusations of rampant nepotism in OUSD; Rocco’s reaction to community activist Fred Smoller’s call (CLICK ON: http://greaterorange.blogspot.com/2006/09/metro-views_13.html) for Rocco to resign; Rocco’s reaction to Ortega saying he was leaving while Rocco was speaking; the shocked reactions from staff and trustees to Ortega standing over Rocco challenging him to be quiet; the chaotic ending with a paralyzed Board President Kim Nichols barely being able to end the meeting. All the political, emotional drama is missing from the televised version as the censored cable broadcast ends at the vote on the Consent Agenda, thus avoiding the emotional fireworks and near physical volley that ends the meeting.

    Not to worry, what Godley doesn’t want you to see, Orange Net News will be reporting. That’s right the whole event will be covered in the next Orange Unified Schools Digest proving once again why an independent local source of information on our elected leaders is needed in a free society, especially when powerful bureaucrats like Dr, Godley have the power to censor what the public will and will not see and hear about their elected officials.

    Be sure to read all about it right here on your local, independent and UNCENSORED news source.
