Charlottesville community activist, Tanesha Hudson, was deliberately barred from speaking on the City-produced Cville360, “a video program designed to inform and engage the community.”
Cville360 is hosted by Charlottesville’s Director of Communications, Brian Wheeler, who personally and intentionally disallowed a comment from Ms. Hudson on the May 19 edition of the program. In doing so, Wheeler cited Hudson’s comments at the previous night’s City Council meeting, wherein Hudson directed personal remarks toward City Councilor, Heather Hill, Wheeler’s then-guest on Cville360.
In a June 23 Facebook Live post, Ms. Hudson referenced: suing the City; her attorney, Jeff (presumably Jeff Fogel); the City’s offer of a “settlement” and an “apology”; and Ms. Hudson’s intention to forego the City’s offers and take the case to court.
Charlottesville City previously was sued by Joe Draego, who prevailed against the government in a First-Amendment-based lawsuit.
