What's this blog really about?

You may notice a variety of topics here - from business, to charity promotion, even to local news, but the primary reason this blog was created was to alert readers to the hostile atmosphere and sexual harassment at The Danville Register & Bee. The readers and creator of this blog want a FULL FRONT PAGE apology in the Danville Register & Bee, plus the disciplining of those individuals involved. Until then, we'll continue to post regular updates. To tolerate THIS kind of behavior by a major media network is intolerable. And this isn't just ONE instance. Media General has been sued nationwide for racism and sexism, yet they CONTINUE to keep the offenders employed. Why? And why am I doing this? TRUTH compels me.

True or False?

Most of you are familiar with snopes.com right? They're the folks who search out the internet rumors about things like say the man who was so angered about the IRS's refusal to allow him to take deductions for raising his three children that he threatened to turn the kids over to the government to raise. True or False? Well, true actually. Click here for the details. Please check it out. The true letter he wrote is really hilarious!

So snopes.com deals with weird, wacky stories. But recently Americans have stopped sending in the latest ghost story so much and are sending in more political stories and queries. They want to know. They can't turn to the media for help, so they're turning to snopes. I mean network media like ABC! What does it say about the credibility of the media when readers not only have to question whether or not there's a bias but they turn to a couple of basically bloggers on the internet for confirmation!? Seriously! Readers (myself included) trust Snopes.com more than the media.

Read this and you tell me. Who do you believe? ABC or the "cousin"?


Did you know that for the past five years - even up until just this year - journalists questioned whether bloggers were "Credible or legitimate journalists" - as though God had died and put the media in charge of truth....

If the media were doing its job - bloggers wouldn't have to do theirs.
