Blame Democrats for Arlington's Media Mess


Hi, Yupette,

Who besides the County Board and VIP Democrats are responsible for the Smart Growth mess? Try the local media, starting with Arlington County's huge Democratic Party-Smart Growth public information aka propaganda aka brainwashing operation, at least a hundred PR employees embedded in County Government, ranging from the County Managers Office to AVN and AIM. APS has its own crew of Smart Growth propaganda specialists. All paid by us, the taxpayers.

Heading up Arlington County's Smart Growth Propaganda Team is Bryna Helfer, Arlington's Director of Communications and Public Engagement. Before being appointed Arlington's de facto Minister of Smart Growth Propaganda Bryna served as Assistant Secretary for Public Engagement at the U.S. Department of Transportation during the Obama Administration, at a time when tens of billions were squandered on showcase projects like streetcar systems while the nation's highways and bridges crumbled. Before that, Bryna was employed by several charitable non-profits whose main mission was and is employing upscale progressives in do-nothing positions.

Bryna was thoroughly vetted by the Arlington County Democratic Committee, Smart Growth America, and various Smart Growth adherents on County Staff and the County Board before being hired

Since Bryna became head of Arlington's Smart Growth Propaganda Team she's proved she's a loyal Smart Growth cheerleader and booster. She's helping promote massive redevelopment of Ballston even though the resulting traffic is negatively impacting her own Westover neighborhood. She's communicated effectively with Smart Growth Boosters at the Washington Post, Inside Nova, and ArlNow, among other media outlets.

So don't just blame the County Board for the Smart Growth mess. They have plenty of help, paid for by taxpayers.

She's one of hundreds in the bloated Smart Growth bureaucracy that's destroying our County, paid for by taxpayers.

You should feature Smart Growth media skank Scott Brodbeck who directly profits from advertising Smart Growth infill.

Bryna facilitating the Pike streetcar at USDOT for Chris Zimmerman while Metrorail craahed and burned?

Nothing will change in Arlington so long as the skanks who own the news media make tons of money fron advertising, infomercials, sponsored content, adinfo, spam advertising, etc., promoting Smart Growth.

She's another one who will move to Farfromsmartgrowth NC in 4 or 5 years.

Local media suck up to Democratic VIPs to the extent ALL the news they publish are warmed over press releases.

No, in 4 or 5 years she will be PR Director for Erik Gutshall's company Millemnnuial Middle McMansion Housing, LLC.

How much are we paying in taxes for all the County's video productions extolling Smart Growth?

Isn't County Government great? Who comes to County Board meetings anymore? Residents bitching about Smart Growth and the effects of Smart Growth on their neighborhoods, e.g., too much traffic. And the County Board doesn't give a rat's a** except when Smart Growth developers are inconvenienced in some way. The media are all greedy shills for whatever County Government wants.

How "vibrant" will Westover Village be when it's gridlocked?

Jay Fisette said...

We are adjourning a secret meeting to convene a closed meeting to discuss how we can form a commission packed with Smart Growth Yellow Dog Democrats to decide how the fuck we're going to avert the total gridlock we're due to have to endure based on our 20 years of Smart Growth "Planning".

Time to tell Victor Hoskins, Carol Mitten, and other non-resident County Government VIPs to go where their Smart Growth gentrification is desperately needed -- Baltimore.

Democratic Regime buys votes with extravagant spending for sports-recreation-entertainment infrastructure, Taj Mahal schools, and a huge bureaucracy that attends to every nickel and dime item someone wants e.g., Assistant County Manager for Butterfly Gardens.

Local media are greedy pigs who can't pack too much advertising into their news blogs, much of the "news" written by Bryna's staff.

I gave up on Inside Nova after two screen freezes this morning.

Hey, AY, thanks for taking on the sleazy media who are all profiting from destroying our neighborhoods by being shills for Stupid Growth.

I also don't visit the InsideNova News blog. Too many press releases, too much spam advertising.

ArlNow's Owner and Publisher, Scott Brodbeck, is so greedy for ad $$$$ that he kicked off my comment about my neighborhood being overwhelmed by traffic from Smart Growth redevelopment.

Then there are AVN and AIM ;~!

I happened to be in Ballston yesterday. Wanted to see how bad the evening traffic is on Washington Blvd. If you stand on the bridge over I-66 you can see traffic backed up all the way from Glebe Rd. to George Mason Drive. That's before tolls go into effect on I-66.

AIM and AVN make me sick. How much are taxpayers paying to produce this propaganda?

Anonymous said...

Once upon a time in the not too distant past I wanted to produce an independent 1/2 hour TV show on AIM that would feature people not connected with the Democratic Regime asking hard questions of elected officials, but when I asked the Limo Libs, aka Progressives, who control AIM about hosting a show they told me that even if I took their production class there were no time slots available.

Yellow Dog Dems who control AIM have been telling anyone who is not a Progressive aka Limo Liberal that there are no time slots available for at least the past decade.

Bryna has started a Millennial "ideas" blog to determine how effective the County's media brainwashing beamed towards Millennials has been.

How bad are Scott Brodbeck and ArlNow? He's attracting wildlife to his Fairlington neighborhood with garbage scraps then running the photos of the wildlife as "news" on ArlNow.

LOL. Scott has an ongoing feature about the deodorant container he threw on top of a bus shelter a couple weeks ago.

County is making a big deal about Brodbeck's and McCaffrey's street finally being repaved, you'd think there would be a photo or two.

Scott McCaffrey was attacked by a drone disguised to look lie a bird the other day -- what will those neighborhood scamps in Fairlington do next?

What will Bryna's neighbors say when they are gridlocked in their driveways once the tolls start on I-66?
