* ARTICLE I – Responsibility
The primary purpose of gathering and distributing news and opinion is to serve the general welfare by informing the people and enabling them to make judgments on the issues of the time. Newsmen and women who abuse the power of their professional role for selfish motives or unworthy purposes are faithless to that public trust. The American press was made free not just to inform or just to serve as a forum for debate but also to bring an independent scrutiny to bear on the forces of power in the society, including the conduct of official power at all levels of government.

BUT THERE IS A LAWSUIT!
— AND LNP WITHHOLDS
IT ALL FROM THE PUBLIC —
The below was published on this site on May 21st of this year and the original is here.
Now a federal lawsuit has been filed against Officers Jake Bingham and Timothy Sinnott arising from a different incident on March 22nd.
And LNP remains silent and doesn’t do their journalistic duty to inform the public about two men the public pays to protect and serve them.
The unbelievable and blatant racism at LNP and their failure to protect all members of our society is shocking and has been going on for years.
Anyone who is employed by that phony, corrupt, greedy and racist company is not a journalist. And if you think you are, go read a journalism code of ethics and learn the truth. You aren’t even decent human beings.
