media watch...great comments.

the biggest difference between 'indy' media and the big guys is simple: money. yes, you see definite slants and angles from the writers at RTH. The agenda is to make Hamilton a better place. We have no money involved. We don't have advertisers. We aren't paid. We're citizens with families and jobs who do this for one reason - we care about Hamilton. Don't minimize the massive effect that has on media. Big media can only say or print what the big money allows them to. I've spoken with current employees at CHCH and asked them why they don't do a story on x topic or x scandal. They've all replied the same thing - the station would never allow it. "I've tried before and by the time the editors are done with it, the piece isn't worth showing" etc.... money talks. and in our case at RTH, no money allows us to talk for the good of Hamilton.
