As far as WWAY's conduct, have you ever heard of an anonymous tip? Someone calls a media outlet and reports that a new video has been posted? I doubt the reporters have the time to search YouTube or know the identity of who is tipping them off....but heck, a conspiracy charge is always the first shelter for those justifiably under fire or their embarrassed supporters.
Second point, WWAY and most television stations have a large audience over multiple counties. The Star News likely isn't covering this story much because Brunswick County is rightfully covered by The Brunswick Beacon and The State Port Pilot.
Third point, how in the world do winos and addicts sleeping under bridges have anything whatsoever to do with a an elected official abusing the power of his office? Just like Charles Warren, their conduct is what has written the tome of their life.
If WWAY is guilty of anything, it's not launching a full investigative effort to connect the dots and expose exactly why Warren and his fans want to maintain their death-grip on DSS.
