We all know there is a lot of organized crime in the Shreveport and Bossier City area but there are few stories that ever surface that are not quickly taken out of the media.

Who are the key people involved in illegal activities in the area? I have heard that many of the auto dealers were involved in the drug trade but have not really see any evidence to back it up.

You are right. The main problem with the local media is that they see themselves not as an institution to bring the truth to the people, as is the idealistic image we have of reporters, but more to serve as a chamber of commerce and to portray the area in the best possible light.

Look at the one thing they could not ignore a couple of years ago. The City Hall Rapist. While they had to cover that, they were more then happy to see the story die. They had no interest in the root causes of the situation that led to this, or even to ask the most basic questions like why did this man have access to the mayor's office. City Hall could have made up any reason, but why bother? No one asked.

Within a year of this event the city did do some cleaning and several employees quietly left. We still have a problem with the Fire Department. They are a little harder to get rid up. The fire department "sex shows" maybe just a symptom of a larger problem.

My point is that there are no reporters with the "Woodward and Bernstein" since of purpose in the local media. Even the "Inquisitor" has financial dealings with Shreveport now.
