  1. I think the Post needs to enroll in the journalism class at PMS and learn how to report a story – who, what, when, where, and WHY.

    My editorial suggestion – “…and all speakers criticized Wieler for his Face Book posts.”

  2. Wieler’s Facebook comments replicate Donald Trump’s divisive language. The Post’s reporting replicates the Fox News style of sharply biased reporting.

  3. Rupert and O’Reilly

  4. After all these years, Piedmonters are finally beginning to understand Jeff Wieler. His Facebook posts are the real Jeff Wieler.
    As to the Piedmont Post, it’s not a journalistic endeavor but a booster rag aimed at those who still adhere to the myth of Piedmont Exceptionalism.
