Here is a link to a story on the Al Jazeera website. Check it out. http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/spotlight/us...

I find it funny that Lane Bailey think that Lenoir's future is community gardens and food banks. Is it any wonder our unemployment rate is over 12 percent and the national average is about 8?

Why not? They are a middle east based world news network like any other news broadcaster, they look for stories and they report them. They probably found this story somewhere on the net/AP wire and re posted it. It's no different then when one of our news agency's report some story about some one horse town over there. They like to report any story they can showing Americans expressing disdain for the government, it fuels their cause.

I'm not trying to make a conspiracy theory out of it. I am simply saying out of all the places to pick, the only thing outstanding about Lenoir is its lack of jobs. Yes, we have a high number of people unemployed, but look at the over all unemployment rate for the nation.

Still doesn't answer why they are filming the old Blue Bell building like it is a Broyhill plant.

and your nickname "nothing to see here" is exactly my point. There isn't anything to see.

I am sure they didn't actually film it, it was just a story another local news agency filmed and reported on, they just found it somewhere on the web/AP and placed their name on it. They just look around for whatever stories they can find that show problems in America. I am sure they have shown hundreds of similar stories about other towns where people are complaining about the state of our nation.

Keep in mind they are not necessarily an anti American news agency although they do show terrorist propaganda but yet they are more a nationalistic news broadcaster that has to play by the rules that the Muslim world dictates to all the press in that part of the world. They actually have some good stories but it is obviously going to be biased with a not so hidden agenda.

Lenoir News Topic does not report anything about lenoir unless it glorifies the CCSD, praises Caldwell Memorial, or blesses a church. At least a middle eastern media shows the other side of life here. Not supporting that media by no means but local media here is generally two day old news, censored to be politically correct locally and not to offend the bible belt. So what is the difference??

You would be wrong. I was actually in Helping Hands Clinic the day they were there filming. From what I was told, the story originated around all the good things Helping Hands does to help the uninsured in the community and Aljazeera was doing stories about the state of healthcare in the US. How it became a political piece, I dont know.
