I noticed that the Lake County Record Bee is no longer carrying topix. Could they have bowed to economic pressure over the Prop 8 issue ?

Perhaps as citizens we need to take a look at the trend of wealthy people and large corporations buying up local papers. Something is wrong with this and it stinks like moldy money!

The newspaper is cowering to the local
politicians.
What protection does a journalist have to
protect them.
Lake County has the number one marijuana crop
production in the United States of America.
Pot Stores are throughout the neighborhoods.
A body is found in the south county.
A Supervisor has 500 plants on their property.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, and it goes
further than that.
But what it does bring FEAR AND GREED.
WHEN FEAR AND GREED REARS ITS UGLY HEAD AND A
FREE PRESS IS NO MORE AND INVESTMENT IN A
COMMUNITY STOPS.
STOPS
IS NO MORE

Well, now that the Record Bee decided to charge people to read their articles on line, it looks like the Record Bee will soon be history, and good riddance!

This newspaper was bought by a conglomerate that has no interest in local affairs, only the advertising revenue and pushing the agenda of the owners in contrast to serving the community.

This appears to be a trend nation wide, and I hope that we can encourage Newspapers like the Lake County News, a true community newspaper published by real people in our community, to continue the coverage of important issues that are ignored by the remotely owned Record Bee, a false community newspaper that is only in it for power and the wealth of those who have been busy subverting local newspapers all over the country!

The newspaper is slowly dying. Instead we are turning to free and more accurate sites which allow open and unmoderated discussion. We don't need large companies with big printing presses anymore. We all can report and opinion with ease from our home or office. Look at the recent crash at the Reno Air Races... if you want to wait for the paper and 12 hour old information great, or you can get on a free website and immediately view the crash filmed from multiple angles by a bunch of folks just like you and me. You can access discussion forums with real pilots and racers discussing the accident in detail as new information is discovered. Since there is no one central source the information can not be controlled.

Lake County News seemed nice, but has proven a disappointment. Particularly disturbing is the censorship of intelligent comments made by a local lawyer. They have their own agenda, you had better believe it.

So the paper is dead... lets focus on protecting our freedom on the internet.

Why do we need to use only Facebook. It's not Free it is Regulated. That is why you have to sign in.

Personally I value the comments made following a news article sometimes more than the article itself. I stopped reading the Press Democrat also due to their removing the topix link as the Record Bee has done.

I notice that the reasoning of the Record Bee for switching to facebook is that topix won't allow them to remove comments. I don't buy their reasoning for wanting to occasionally remove posts and feel it is simply a control issue by those who run this tool of manipulation that the Record Bee has become.

I now trust facebook even less due to this observation. I will stay with the integrity of topix even though it means having to deal with the trolls.

If a news organization wants that much control over what is said, I no longer consider it a news gathering and dispensing operation, but rather just another one of the arms of the disinformation branch of the Patriarchal Religious Military Industrial Complex.

The Lake County News at least allows commenting so for now it is the only source of news I read to keep informed as to what is going on here in Lake County. I don't think anyone can achieve a total lack of bias in running a newspaper, that is why I value the free expression of public opinion that the Internet makes possible!

The Record Bee is a socialist rag and the Publisher thinks that's where he should be. He is not capable of defending socialist ideas so he represses anything else.
It is just that simple.

The Two Minute Conservative at http://adrianvance.blogspot.com has political analysis,
science and humor. Now in the top 3% on Kindle.

They have found a niche in order to stay in business in Lake County.....a daunting task for anyone these days.
The RB also does a decent job on local high school sports......their bread and butter.

Has anyone else tried to mail a letter to the editor of the record bee without getting it edited beyond recognition? They don't even have a publisher some other guy just sits in his office in Ukiah and calls himself the publisher. Everybody has an agenda.
