I've been conscripted to moderate the Media Wars. By whom, you ask? Why, my wife, of course. The first thing is to determine how many viable online news outlets we have in the Shoals. Maybe more than you think or maybe less. Let's go in alphabetical order.
Pen-N-Sword: Sure, I read it every day. They had a virus problem for a long time, but now that it's cleared up, it's booming. Good choice for crime and humor.
Quad-Cities Daily: I read this publication every day as well. Great for local event photos and for those who follow chamber of commerce shindigs. It's booming, too.
Shoals Daily: I check in here maybe once a month. It has real potential, but no one's putting anything into it. Who owns it? They can do better, as in at least publishing something. It's dying. I just hated not to include it.
Shoals Insider: No, I don't read every day, but do check in about twice a week. Between all us media insiders like you and me, the owner needs help in more than one way. Mainly a good read only if you like press releases.
Did I leave anyone out? If I did, you can contact me on my Facebook page and threaten to have me arrested for a capital crime. How's that?
What comes next? I'm going to do a Facebook comparison chart of the four and my site as well. I'll try to post the data every week.
Now the fun begins!
