COLUMN: We are YOUR local newspaper, so let’s all work together to really make a difference

I got into news journalism because I really believe in telling the truth.

As I’m sure is the same for everyone, there have been times in my life where telling the truth has been hard, and sometimes upsetting, but very necessary, and I wanted to help people tell their own truths in a way which would help benefit others.

Because there are lots of things that we have a right to know about - how our taxpayer money is spent, how our streets are policed, how our local and national governments make important decisions which impact on our day to day lives.

But, I believe that in the near-decade that I have been working in news, the tables have turned.
Example: There used to be a time when going to the scene of an incident and speaking to emergency workers would help you get to the bottom of the story. Help you to tell people what was going on better than sitting at your desk, in your ivory tower.
Not so now - an army of press officers are the ‘go to’ point of contact for any journalist. No one at the scene is allowed to speak with us. We might send someone anyway, but chances are the one calling the press office will get more information.
