This and other recent post have not made it into the mainstream medial. At least not to my knowledge. On any news day….this would be something to cover. Local print seems to have a strange way to deciding what is newsworthy or not. So, If you really want to find out what’s going on in eastern NC. Check out the DCN. No advertising here! Just straight talk.
Last week a body was found in Halifax County and identified. The results were released today.
I wonder sometimes if the Telegram uses these events to just add clicks to their website. Mike Hixenbaugh tweeted around 4 times in a row with saying this was coming. He always points back to a link on the telegram. So, how much of this is real news …and how much of this is just hype to sell a paper or make a little click money?
Comments are always heated, usually turn racial, but the Telegram really doesn’t feel the need to solve this problem. Why? Money?
More than 75 people who attended the community meeting hosted by the Wilson branch of the NAACP Thursday night agreed on some short-range goals they want City of Wilson leaders to accomplish.
The group voted to ask city council to place all customers on billing dates that are payday friendly. They also want the city to put together a committee to review city policies. The group also voted to support a city-wide blackout on March 18 for 12 hours from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. to get the attention of city leaders.
Shafeah M’Balia came from Rocky Mount to say that citizens there have the same problems with high utility bills as Wilson residents and cities should unite.
M’Balia said because of high electric bills, residents in Rocky Mount formed a grassroots group called Utility Working Group of the People’s Assembly.
"No one city can fight ElectriCities alone," M’Balia said. "Each city has to first unite their citizens. Then each city has to unite. We need to unite and form a people’s movement."
CNBC should publicly declare a drastic change of direction, committing to responsible journalism in an effort to hold Wall Street accountable in the future. The stakes are too high for CNBC to continue acting as the unofficial mouthpiece of Wall Street.
