What does the Knoxville News Sentinel have against a man that pours his heart into Knox County? BUT apparently they find it delightfully enchanting to write a story about him every chance they get. Since he’s been mayor they’ve tried to run his name in the ground, but it’s not worked. The citizens of Knox County are smarter than Editor Jack McElroy may give us credit for. Jack has a history of using convicted criminal Allison Beavers (Tim’s ex wife) among others to advance his personal agenda.
The latest story involves former Sheriff
Tim Hutchison who was removed from office over term limits. They ran the story to make it out like Mayor Burchett attacked Hutchinson.
This “story” to me is funny because attack is not the word I would ever use to talk about Mayor Tim Burchett’s temperament. But let’s move on to the story and what actually happened. The Knoxville News Sentinel tried to get milk out of a dead cow. To sum it up they pretty much said that for no reason whatsoever that Mayor Burchett almost got into a fight with Tim Hutchison and was broken up by two deputies.
Here’s what I know….. Words were definitely exchanged, probably very loudly. I mean wouldn’t you be loud if someone was attacking your family. But that’s it, nothing else happened. A fIght? No! Our County Mayor isn’t going to throw down in the city county building. For anyone who knows the mayor they know he’s not a hot head.
Surely the Knoxville News Sentinel is better at fact finding, but than again it seems they could care less about the facts. Again, what does the Knoxville News Sentinel have against Mayor Burchett? Is it their relationship with Allison Beavers, Brad Mayes, or are they just doing this until they come out endorsing Jimmy Matlock? Whatever the case may be, we really don’t care…..
