Residents say local Myrtle Beach media, including WPDE, WMBFnews, and WBTW are complicit in this government sponsored tax.   While each of these news groups use their own Web Analytics to sell advertising, not one local news team has asked to see the last 8 years of web analytics from the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber Of Commerce to make those available to their viewers.

The city of Myrtle Beach decided to bypass residents and pass this tax without a referendum.

The vote will be held at 2 p.m. this Tuesday at the Ted C. Collins center on Oak Street in Myrtle Beach.
