Has anybody else noticed how the local news outlets don't really report the news? They just print whatever is fed to them?

Sorry, that last sentence was not supposed to be a question.

National news outlets actually do a little research to either back up what they're told, or to disprove it. Around here, they print what either the Sheriff's office or the Police Department print. A prime example is the shooting of the Deputy. Why have we not heard anything else about that? Because nothing has been released by WCSO! I mean, at least make a couple phone calls!

Just wondering Mary, what else do you want to know about that tragic event?

The local media goes to either the Sheriff's Office or Police Department and reads the reports in order to "make the news". Nothing is hidden, there is no conspiracy. Our local media prints in the paper or announces on the radio what they choose. I admit sometimes the local media lets certain things "go by" so to speak. Why? I don't know, but I do know that law enforcement doesn't keep anything hidden. As for Deputy Mast, it's been told over & over that the SBI is in charge of the investigation and that since both Deputy Mast and Mr. Trivette are both deceased, they will probably never know why this happened. It's more or less speculation. I do know Deputy Mast responded to a 911 call in order to help someone in need and was gunned down.

I'm not trying to stir up anything about the Deputy Mast incident. I was just using it as an example. There is never any real follow up to most of the stories that they print. What happened to the guy who was stabbed on the Parkway? Were there ever any disciplinary measures against the Trooper who rear ended that couple on 421? These are things that the newspapers should look into, and maybe they would be able to make some more sales.

Maybe there is nothing to report, still under investigation, or still has not been through the proper channels, family notification, settlement agreements the list is endless.

Here is a perfect example of one of our local news outlets getting it wrong. Let's see if there's any follow up to correct it, or if they will just let it slide. http://www2.wataugademocrat.com/News/story/Mo...

Well Mary, I guess the newspaper read your post and "Updated" the "hit and run". Nice of them to get the "preliminary" report and do a follow up after all
the statements had been taken.

I stand corrected on how the media gets things wrong. The article on the motorcycle is wrong, there is a pic of the two behind Cheek's and it was reported that they were still being chased. Not to mention the people that saw the chase down 321 S. to the Lenoir limits.
