Thanks to La Crosse Tea Party members in the audience LaCrosseWatchdog was able to obtain a "prohibited" recording of the debate (video below). A policy of denying a city council debate open to the public from being filmed is an outrage! While selectively choosing what media outlet is allowed to film. I believe anytime government officials get together and discuss public policy the public has a right to record it.
The recording serves as a record of what actually happened. No way for the mainstream media to manipulate the covering of what actually was said. Being able to record your government is a right that needs to be exercised and LaCrosseWatchdog will continue to hold those in power accountable.
