Not one word on North Texas e - News, about either fire in Fannin County , Sunday one of which clamied two lives. If it would have been in MCKinney , it would be all over e -News.
Not A PIO

Maybe e-news doesn't have field reporters that are able to respond to active scenes. The City of McKinney also has Public Information Officer's (PIO) that work full time for the fire department and police department. They city also had a full time media relations department that represents the city as a whole. The police, fire and media departments for the City of McKinney prepare press releases that they send out to all media outlets to better inform the citizens of what is taking place. Maybe our communities and public safety agencies should better inform it's citizens through press releases.

Then don't pay your subscription to e-News! Oh that's right, Allen provides that for free. Don't go to his site if you don't like the news there.

Check again - front page, lead story on eNews. Looks to me like Allen was waiting for accurate, official reports. And knowing the FSCO, they don't have anyone who is exclusively a PIO. They probably were too busy attending to the 2 fires and 2 deaths and didn't have time til today to draft something up.

So you are complaining about a free to you website? Are you some major advertiser on there and feel like you can whine about what news is on there or not?

Some people will bitch and moan about any and ever thing!

E-News is getting to be a joke for Bonham and Fannin County. Some city official probably pissed Rich off! The Obits. are nearly all out of our area. Could understand if they had relatives in Fannin County, none listed. Can't figure it out, unless he does not have any thing to print or report.

We don't read enews any more. No local info, just Grayson and Collin counties. They sure print the local police report with names.
say what?

I read eNews every day and I always find Fannin County news in it. Sure there is Grayson and Collin in there too. But it is called North Texas eNews - not Fannin eNews.

Yeah, plenty of local news on there. The obits are primarily from the 4 funeral homes that are paid advertisers of that site. Never seen anyone gripe about obituaries before, completely unbelievable.

Many news sites put police records, indictments, court decisions. Kxii has court decisions on their site right now.

Enews sure is convenient to have when the only other thing is the Herald Democrat that has a limited amount of coverage in fannin county, and then the local shopper which is just a weekly ad paper with some slanted news coverage and their employees opinion columns. The obits in that paper are most of the time for people that have been buried for days.

You do realize that eNews has one person and WFAA and KTEN both have lots more employees than that? These 3 media sources are all offered to the community for free, but we all know the ads sold on TV cost a whole lot more than the ads on eNews. Hardly seems fair to compare eNews to those TV stations. Also seems very hateful to call for businesses to boycott another local business just because they didn't report a story fast enough for you.

Just saw the photos on ENews of the church fire. I've seen lots of coverage of the story, but all of the other photos are just the smoldering piles of ashes. ENews is first one I have seen to share photos of the flames. Yes, he did get them from someone else. Which leads me to clarify, eNews has one paid person and lots of folks who contribute to eNews without any compensation. So I guess if you have complaints and want to see improvements with eNews you should either encourage all advertisers to increase their payments to eNews so they can hire more help or encourage more in our community to volunteer their time to submit more news stories and photos to eNews.

I don't think the remarks you are referring to was meant to {gripe} about the obituaries. That is silly!!! I read into they were looking for local relatives or ties to Fannin County. I heard the Herald and KXII does not like Bonham city officials and will not report over here unless it's breaking news!!
