Spokane sounds off

Many of those waiting in line outside the Spokane Convention Center on Saturday to catch a glimpse of the man likely to carry the mantle of the Republican party in the November presidential election criticized the media for selectively covering the New York real estate mogul.

“They report what they want to report,” said Steve Peters, of Spokane, who attended the rally with his wife, Marcia.
