Maybe it was because the liberals gathered closer to Shaw Media’s Northwest Herald building.
Maybe it was because Congressman Sean Casten showed up.
Maybe it was because the left wing group calling itself “Indivisible NWIL” told the Northwest Herald of its event and the conservatives didn’t tell the NWH of its impromptu (one day notice) demonstration.
In any event, a Shaw publication called “The Citizen” had an article with no byline (but with the name NWH reporter “Cassie Buchman/Woodstock” at the event), as you can see from the screen shot below (no link could be found to the article):
Claiming thirty showed up at the event organized by Woodstock’s Eveej Malone, the event promoted the Democrats’ nationalization of voting rules.
Prior to the night “vigil,” near Target, conservatives gathered near the intersection or Route 176 and Valley View Road in Prairie Grove to protest a $200 fine for Gianelli’s Drive Thru restaurant.
Freewill donations garnered $200 to pay the fine.
