News coverage concerning the Pechanga Tribe and their enrollment policies will be airing tomorrow on KNBC in Los Angeles (click here to go to their web page).
The Pechanga Tribe is once again being focused upon for their enrollment policies. As usual, they did not have any comment on the matter and where well aware of the fact that a producer and reporter had been working on this story for nearly 4 months. During that time, they had made several attempts to get an interview with somebody at Pechanga but they were always denied. That all changed after the promos for the story started to hit the airwaves. Pechanga notified KNBC on Friday that someone would meet with and interview with the reporter prior to the story being aired.
The interview took place today at Pechanga. The interview ended several hours ago, and I was told it was a “nothing” interview. Pechanga claimed it was an internal matter, they would not answer questions regarding the John Johnson report, and eventually asked the reporter and producer to leave when they began to ask questions that Pechanga did not want to answer.
