North Hollywood Neighborhood Council Rep Censors IndyBay!

by Anonymous
Three days ago an IndyBay expose put a spotlight on the role controversial North Hollywood Neighborhood Rep Jo Ann Rivas played in a massive racketeering scheme. Now it's vanished from Google's News Feed. Censorship is believed to be the cause.

On May 13, 2023 – an expose was published about a local Neighborhood Council Rep in the NoHo Arts District of Los Angeles and what role she played in a massive racketeering scheme at Los Angeles Valley College.

Jo Ann Rivas was a member of the Los Angeles Valley College Citizen's Oversight Committee in late 2017 – 2018, that failed to provide oversight to the claims made by Pinner Construction in the building of the Valley Academic and Cultural Center. She also was a Professional Expert at Los Angeles Valley College, despite questionable credentials.

The full-article still appears on IndyBay and can be accessed here:

Controversial NoHo Neighborhood Rep Named In Racketeering Scheme at Los Angeles College | May 13, 2023 |

But using multiple search terms in Google News shows that the article, while appearing in a regular Google search, has disappeared from Google's News Feed.

It also included information about two Radio Personalities Diana Deville and Summer Still, who appear to have also appear to have misrepresented their professional experience and credentials.

Generally speaking where there's smoke, there is fire and where there is censorship, there is corruption. And the Los Angeles Community College District, particularly it's campus serving the Van Nuys/North Hollywood/Studio City/Toluca Lake, Burbank, Valley Village, Valley Glen and Sherman Oaks neighborhoods appears to be a hot bed of corruption.
