As the News Director for the Dakota News Network, I wanted to explain why I’m not personally covering this very important story today. Frankly, it’s because I am the only person in the newsroom and I cannot responsibly report on this the way our listeners deserve to have it reported. I also will not participate in fearmongering, conjecture, or simply sloppy reporting.
I’m sure our local officials will put out statements or make comments, and I am happy to deliver those to you. But, I’m not going to put out my half-guesses about our nation’s future and call it news.
We are a small, independent news company – locally owned right here in the Dakotas. I want to do my best to serve you. I am happy to help you navigate the national news you may see elsewhere and have questions about. Please, reach out to me with your questions and I will help you find more information.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
News Director, Dakota News Network
