NEWS BLACKOUT

I have a story. The problem is NO ONE is reporting the news. NO ONE. None of the media outlets (print media) are taking stories from "stringers" (freelancers).....no one is reporting local news. It's so bad that the media outlets aren't taking FREE pieces from freelancers. You offer them a good piece & they don't want it. It's a serious problem in the Hemet-San Jacinto Valley. Social media is CENSURING everything & no one seems to be able to do anything about it.

 

I've contacted Hemet & San Jacinto Chronicle, The Valley News, Press Enterprise. Salem Media, you name it. This election cycle has been horrendous & people are disgusted with the garbage that's taking place. People use social media as their primary source of news. What's on social media? Gossip! That's not news. When you give them news, they block it.. They don't want the truth.

 

I can get interviews, a lot of great information but if you don't have an outlet, you're screwed. The truth becomes irrelevant. Print media is dying on the vine. They will probably never recover from Internet presence. In Hemet, none of the small businesses are generating enough money to advertise anywhere. To top it off, we're in lockdown again. Very little is actually getting done. It's crazy. Even if you ran into someone willing to front money for a publication, it would take years before such an endeavor could support itself. That's why it's so important for citizens, for voters, for residents to get their information from a reliable source.

 

This country is in a whole LOT of trouble,

 

There is crap going on in the city of Hemet that would make your head spin. There is a war taking place in city politics & it's about to get worse. The city is getting away with it because they don't think anyone is paying attention. We ARE paying attention but we are being SHUT DOWN by a certain group of people. There is at least one individual who thinks he "owns" about a half dozen Facebook pages & his lemmings will delete a post with honest news, then they block you from posting. Lovely, huh? Hemet Politics not only post the truth, we document it. We provide proof in black and white. Believe me, I’m not done with this. They will not shut me down. I’m not the only one, there are others out there like me.

 

I'm not sure what's happening in other communities within So. California or out of state, I'd be curious to know. This country is absolutely rife with corruption and it seems like it's getting worse by the moment.

 

Regardless of who wins the national election, they can’t catch it all. The super pacs get away with crap that’s unbelievable; I don’t know how they do it. I don’t know why there aren’t more people in prison. I can name a few in Hemet that should be.

 

This was really a rant. I have more things to share with the group, but I’ve been inundated. Hang in there, it’s coming.

 

The City Council is being put on notice. The City of Hemet is being put on notice. For that matter, anyone who thinks they can control the flow of information is being put on notice.
