Fox 5/WAGA-TVs Justin Gray was blocked by state troopers from a public immigration bill signing held today by Gov. Nathan Deal at the Gold Dome. Why? Deals press office was angry about an unrelated, unflattering story Dale Russell had done the night before about Deal.
Below is the story that upset Deals office. The campaign had paid $90,000 to a fund-raising company the I-Team had never heard of called Southern Magnolia Capital. Russell discovered that company was connected to Deals daughter in law Denise Deal. Phil Wilheit, identified in the story as Deals campaign manager, told Russell the transaction was transparent but Russell said the firm has no website or any obvious public information or direct link to Deals name.
Fox 5 news director Mike McClain sent a statement today at about 5:30 p.m. to me: FOX 5 Atlanta stands by our I-Team investigation and Reporter Dale Russell. The barring of FOX 5 cameras from the bill signing today was unacceptable and obviously an emotional reaction to our I-Team investigation. Weve voiced out concerns to the Governors Office and hope that they will reconsider that decision.

You’re, not your. Great, now I’ll have the grammar police beating me up again.
Naw, I’m on you for ‘duaghter in law’
Deal’s deals should not distract from the significance of this expression of the people’s will to secure the borders. I hope Alligator Obama and the rest of the open border partisans are paying attention.
Contraction infraction invites reaction...
Is there anywhere to read this besides an excerpted blog?
Not all FOX television stations are fair and balanced. I’ve seen some that are very leftwingnut....so if this station did a hit job on Deal, I applaud him for telling them to shove it.
Do your best to deny mainstream media income. Don't watch their programs. They are the useful idiots of the far left. Everything they claim should be questioned. Ask first "Who reported that?" Then wonder how that might help The Regime."
“Ask first “Who reported that?” Then wonder how that might help The Regime.”
I’m pretty sure it was an “inside job” leaked to discredit Deal.
