A response to the OC Register's CENSORSHIP problem

Before you read my thoughts on this issue below. Please read this important article by The Voice of OC:

The Orange County Register abruptly altered its advertising policy, barring ads that challenge politicians by name, after two Anaheim city councilwomen complained to the newspaper’s new owners about ads from a local activist that criticized their support of a controversial hotel subsidy, Voice of OC has learned.The ads came from Jason Young, a City Hall blogger who opposes the council majority, which is heavily backed by Disney and other influential local business interests. In December, the Register ran an ad submitted by Young in its Anaheim weekly publications asserting that Councilwomen Kris Murray and Gail Eastman violated state law when they approved a $158-million subsidy for local hoteliers.

 A response from Save Anaheim's Jason Young:

I am outraged that Kris Murray and Gail Eastman would manipulate Orange County's largest newspaper into censoring my ad content. Ad content that merely pointed out the facts regarding their positions and/or votes on important issues.

Here is another example of an ad The OC Register approved and then rejected once I added the names Kris Murray and Gail Eastman:

Version 1 - APPROVED

Attention Anaheim Taxpayers. Did you know the council majority approved a $319 million streetcar system that travels only 3.2 miles? That is roughly $100 million per mile for system that only serves the Anaheim Resort. What's wrong with this picture?

Version 2 - REJECTED (names added)

Attention Anaheim Taxpayers. Did you know that Kris Murray and Gail Eastman approved a $319 million streetcar system that travels only 3.2 miles? That is roughly $100 million per mile for system that only serves the Anaheim Resort. What's wrong with this picture?

It really shouldn't be a surprise to anyone the depths that these two will sink to, but these actions are above and beyond anything I, or anyone else could have possibly imagined. I'd like to remind everyone that these are the same two Council members who:

Gail Eastman standing with Kris Murray sitting to the left.

Gail Eastman standing with Kris Murray sitting to the left.

1. voted to spend $319 million to shuttle Disney guests from ARTIC to the main gate via streetcar

2. gave away $158 million in future tax revenues to GardenWalk Hotel developer Bill O'Connell.

3. pretend to support districting while doing everything in their power to stop it through a sham Citizens Advisory Committee. The cost of fighting the ACLU case is already close to $300,000.

4. have failed at their efforts to rid the city of graffiti.

5. ignore the the need for greater code enforcement funding.

6. retaliated and stripped Lorri Galloway of her Mayor Pro Tem status over her support of allowing voters to approve subsidies to developers.

7. praised the riots so they didn't have to vote on allowing taxpayers to approve hotel subsidies.

8. manipulate the truth from the dais to move their agenda forward.

9. retaliated against Mayor Tait by reducing his staff budget by $40,000 after the GardenWalk Hotel giveaway.

10. support a blog run by a man who is best known for his support of pedophile priest enabler John Urell. A man who also mistakenly released the names of sex abuse victims. A blog who's sole job is to spin their "truth."

Kris Murray and Gail Eastman are merely puppets of the Disney/Pringle agenda. They could care less about the residents of Anaheim. Look at the extremes they have gone to squelch my dissent. From manipulating the OC Register to attacking me on their Anti-Anaheim blog. What's next council members Eastman and Murray?
