As I have pointed out, Philly’s mainstream media either ignores significant fire department stories or distorts them. Usually they just lie about us in favor of political correctness or the administrations political agenda. However the truth does get out thanks to the Internet. Local, unaffiliated, independent web-based media outlets do track down the stories and work damn hard to get them out.
One such site is Phillyfirenews. We often see their reporters on scene at all hours of the day and night covering real incidents the way MSM reporters USED to. One photographer, Ron Trout is a familiar face around the PFD and does excellent work. The people over at Philly Fire News do an enormous public service an deserve a great deal of credit. I urge you to stop by and check out their site. The link above tells just ONE story from the other night and as you can see from the pictures it was a story worth telling. A story the MSM missed yet again.
