Unsurprisingly the two major news outlets in Madison white washed evidence we had presented at the capital news conference today (8-24-2017).   ABC:   http://ridesafeworld.com/wkow-abc-channel-27-abc-affiliate-in-madison-covers-a-small-portion-of-ride-safes-presentation-on-sex-offenders-operating-for-uber-and-lyft/   NBC:   http://ridesafeworld.com/statement-concerning-nbc-15s-madison-nbc-affiliate-treatment-of-news-pertaining-to-the-number-of-sex-offenders-currently-found-driving-in-madison-wi-for-uber-and-lyft/     They shredded the evidence and told the story Uber wanted them to tell in order to make the facts obscure and speculative.  Allowing Uber to continue to profit from endangering the general public and destroying labor ethics through out the state.   THREE CONVICTED SEX OFFENDERS are driving for Uber and Lyft in the state capital right now.  NONE…
