One thought on “Lismore Council: Digging its Own Legal Grave

  1. Corruption to the Filthy Pro-fluoridation Cartel core:-

    NEW YORK, Oct. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Struggling to balance the budget, 2 years ago, the Brooksville, Florida, City Council voted unanimously to stop fluoridation to ease the tax burden on their 8,000 residents. Under siege from misguided and misinformed activists headed by dentist Johnny Johnson and the Tampa Bay Times, the council reversed its decision, reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN)……………………..

    Did One Powerful Media Man with a Mission cause the Florida Fluoridation Reversals?

    Paul Tash, Chairman and CEO of the Tampa Bay Times and member of the Florida Council of 100, a group of business leaders,** pounded his editorial writers to produce pro-fluoridation articles concerning the Pinellas fluoridation battle which garnered them a Pulitzer Prize. It probably didn’t hurt that Tash is also Chairman of the Pulitzer Prize Board.

    The Times reported that Tim Nickens, one of the editorial writers, “credited Tash with pushing the board to keep pressing the fluoride issue. ‘It was Paul’s initial outrage that said we had to get on this fluoride and get this back in the water for the people of Pinellas County,’ Nickens added. ‘When we would finally write something about it last year…he would say ‘That’s great. Now what’s next?’…It’s old style motivation.'”

    Objective journalism wasn’t their goal.  “The Tampa Bay Times editorial board went on mission to correct this travesty” [of stopping fluoridation in Pinellas County, Florida].

    Only Mayor Bradburn stuck to her convictions to reject fluoridation in Brooksville. Few, if any, local residents engaged in the discussion and 3 local dentists who opposed fluoridation feared publicly stating their position would hurt them.

    “We suspect fear of political retribution or personal character assassination forced the reversal vote,” says Connett. “We need more brave legislators like Mayor Bradburn. But, instead of praising her for a good fiscal decision to cut an unnecessary program to save money for her aging constituents, the Tampa Bay Times vilified her.”

    **The Florida Council of 100 includes a representative from Mosaic, a company that supplies all of Florida’s and much of the country’s fluoridation chemicals e.g. hydrofluosilicic acid.
