Do you think this happens with the local paper in Arnold?

The Leader is just the local press release for the current administration. They publish what the administration wants.

Thank you. Both the Rock and the Leader fall into that category,

The Leader, probably not because I have seen them report stories on both sides.

The Rock, it's a local thing so who knows. Each Patch is run by different editors. I think our Patch gets first hand accounts and does a fairly good job as i have seen them report stories for both sides (even though some wont admit it just so they can cry foul). That's not to say that Mehlville's Patch is the same way.

The key is reading the story and investigating yourself. When videos are supplied backing a story then you know they are reliable.

I know that there are some on here who hate the Patch because they removed comments that were in violation of their terms of service. However, those people think that they can post anything and should be allowed to get away with it no matter what it violates. Those are the same people who will try to remove your comments should it make them look in a bad light not of the time.

Now Sam is a media critic too? What don't you do Sam? Could you give me a list of periodicals that I'm allowed to read and trust? This is a big scary world, and without your guidance I'd be lost. I got to see you on the Jaco Report this weekend. I must say you make me a little weak in the knees, too. This little lady is awfully jealous of that wife of yours!!! Sam is our leader and I'd like to follow him!

The Leader is the propaganda arm of the City of Arnold. The last time they wrote an article containing only facts, the reporter got blasted by the council for presenting Arnold in an unfavorable light. So much for real reporting.

I'll give you a chance here to explain what you mean by "I'd like to follow him", because for me I consider it a threat and have reported it as such!

The Leader is only bad for those going the actions and getting caught. They report it exactly as they find it. Some are just mad that their pre election antics were reported on.

There will be no physical following, Sam. I'm a bit to old to get out of the house much these days.

The Leader is merely a propaganda tool used by the locals to smear the opposition and keep complaints to a minimum.

It's shameful to know that grown people who make their livings from "reporting", live in such fear they are afraid to speak truth to power.

The Leader does not serve their readers by keeping them accurately informed. At all.

Shame shame, The Leader.

Shame on you.

Show proof of your accusations. I honestly think you must be one that was reported on by the Leader with the truth that made you look like a fool.

So, Names Named, aka Fed Up Taxpayer, do you have something to hide that you can't reveal your location? You all preach openness yet your hiding the simple things.

Nope. One big difference in your assumption. I don't preach openness. I call those that do on their actions when they are hiding things. You all preach and then hide. I'm calling you all out on it. If you learned to read and learned to tell the truth you would know that.

I find it absolutely HILARIOUS that you bash Patch and then post a link to a story on it. Hypocrites! Oh wait, it's a blog entry by Michelle Homeier on the Patch. Guess what, that makes you more of a hypocrite for using a news source that you blast to post blog entries. I wonder what Sherry thinks of that.

Bless her little heart, she has a slight problem with keeping on topic. In order to help her with that let's get back on the topic of this thread which is tainted local media coverage. The type that equals the spreading of propaganda. Let's say we want real investigative reporting, not the press releases of self serving politicians who are controlling taxpayer money, rewarding their friends and relatives instead of doing the job voters hired them to do. Following the link will give you an example of how this works locally: http://mehlville-oakville.patch.com/groups/ka...

That's hilarious. You are such a hypocrite. You take it off and then want to bring it back. You're also a hypocrite because in your attempt to bring it back you have failed. This is about LOCAL news. Mehlville is not Arnold last time I checked. What a bunch of hypocrites you are and now you have just proven it. Now, what LOCAL news agencies are tainted?
