Is the Times Union shielding Connie Hall and the school board?

Three times they have mentioned the contract between Mrs. Hall, candidate district 5, and the school board. In two they mentioned Mrs. Hall had been endorsed by Betty Burney which you would think is damning enough, and in one they mentioned that the Burney family and WC Gentry contributed to her campaign but they never mentioned that Doug Ayers the districts chief financial officer, who undoubtedly contracts go through did as well.

However most grievously is they never mentioned it was a no compete contract. That’s right friends the board gave Connie Hall 275 thousand dollars and is attempting to give them nearly a half million more without seeing if somebody else could provide the services cheaper or better.

Why is the Times Union leaving out the facts.
