Please note the fifth paragraph in this story. Notice any diction errors? "Might could" is not a phrase normally used in journalism. Unless you're a hillbilly!

Why don't you tell us what's IN the milky rain instead of taking the state Envisonment Department's word for granted? "Journalists" used to dig for facts in a "story", now all they are is glorified news teletypes that spew out this "information" without any idea where it comes from or whether it's true or not...

You have that right dagnabit9!! The news crowd in this state regularly screws up free lunches. I like the good old days when reporters actually went out and reported on the story instead of sitting in a plush news center reading what some goverment pogue is putting out and treating it like Gospel. We need real reporters again.
