Our reporting is totally independent of any organized groups.  The news we gather is mostly from scanner reporting but we do receive some great tips from viewers.  I had a viewer from Westport message me on Facebook that another news source was reporting on something we did not report, YET.  Because it was a press release from the police department.  Yes, we do greatly appreciate the news from the police department…we don’t catch everything.  A lot of news sources cut and paste these news reports as news, not as original news or FACT.  That’s police state news reporting. Sort of like the comrades from socialist countries.  We are better than that aren’t we?

I know most of us just want to know why the firetrucks are down your street and that is what works extremely well for us most of the time reporting to you.  There are a few times that I have information that I won’t report so as not to tip off the bad guy.  A majority of the time we report on what you want to know.

Our country WAS founded on basic human rights called the Bill of Rights.   Freedom of speech is one of them.  No one is threatening me about this but it is important to you to know were you get you news from.  I had a news source today challenge my reporting only to have it brought out in a later press release my facts were correct.  This isn’t the news either.   I just want you to know I will continue to report what I know when I know it.  Yea, breaking news changes quickly and I’ll update as the facts become available.

Other news sources will rely on government provided press releases.  We won’t.  I believe this is the reason you follow us.
