Where Was My Invite?

So the Times Union got a group of readers together to give some feedback on how they are doing? And for some odd reason they failed to invite me or the AlbanyEye. So, even though their focus group consisted of 27 white mostly middle aged people that were mainly from the suburbs, they still got the following comment:

"The paper feels white and suburban and middle-aged"

Hey, Rex, if that is how it feels to a bunch of white, suburban middle-aged people, imagine how it feels to the rest of us?

The only other funny part was a "reader" complaining about the "liberal" columnist David Brooks. Shouldn't they have gotten people that actually read the paper to give feedback on it?
