What lame reporting - it is 5,500 not 55 hundred (some idiot at WPRI trying to make it look bigger). Why no mention of jobs? You should do some "investigating". Mentioning a $4 Billion company and "55 Hundred" sq ft is blatantly trying to manipulate the public into thinking it is something bigger than it is - 55 Hundred sq ft is about the size of a Cumberland Farms convenience store. They are probably going to have a max of 20 people. Mentioning a company is going to hire 20 people doesn't sound as good as $4 billion or 55 Hundred.
If WPRI continues to insult our intelligence, viewers will continue leaving them.

As someone who worked in PR in Rhode Island 10 years ago, I can tell you that the local media would have dropped the story if I had sent out a press release or pitched a similar story, but did not tell them the number of jobs. This is just more fodder for the argument that journalism is dead.
