The GREAT reporting by Detroit News sources on both the newspaper and flip side TV.
5W’s and 1H is the Basis of any journalism. At least it used to be. Otherwise the REPORT you are given leaves giant holes to the story your attempting to report on. And if you’re not going to give ALL the details then don’t give us any. Because it is very irritating.
It’s very simple: Who, What, Why, When, Where & How.
And yet not one word on our LOCAL MEDIA NEWS STATIONS.
WXYZ, WDIV, WJBK, DETROIT NEWS, OR DETROIT FREE PRESS.
But the Free Press did do an article on The Hannahville Indian Community, who wants to put up a casino in Romulus.
On November 5th because of the Veto of funding to the ORC which in reality was already dissolved by Governor Granholm. Because of lack of money for racing officials. ALL 5 MICHIGAN HORSE TRACKS WILL HAVE TO CEASE OPERATION. That means ALL Simulcasting & Live Racing.
And yet the only Media coverage I’ve seen is on links below. Out of Mid/Mi.
The Breeders Cup this year is on Friday November 6th & 7th.
Our HBPA here in Michigan was notified Thursday Oct. 22
Also a link to MHHA also stated same message with the Urgency for action.
Because of the ORC LAYOFFS: The Michigan HBPA was notified that effective November 5, 2009, due to the Governor’s veto of the funding for the ORC, that all ORC will be laid-off. That will cease all racing activity to include live and simulcasting statewide.
