If you listened to Tari Renner’s WJBC interview yesterday, you heard him mention “real journalists” not following up on what bloggers report. WMDB TV was at the council meeting when both Kirk Allen and I spoke.
See these redacted emails received by FOIA. What is Nora telling the POLICE CHIEF concerning WMDB? Maybe – WMDB is asking questions!
Did the police chief answer: Thanks for the heads up?
Yesterday Scott Miller’s side-kick Katherine Murphy made a comment about journalists. It was obvious she thinks only trained journalists should be reporting news. She must not know “trained journalists” are rapidly becoming the most distrusted people in the country.
“Bloggers” wouldn’t exist if the media was doing their job. Citizens deserve more than government talking points and one local media source with a policy against doing investigations.
Freedom of the Press has been usurped by partisan reporting. “Trained journalists” can not be trusted to “dig” for the truth. Bloggers are just filling the void.
