Celebrating National Newspaper Week!

Democracy is best served when the newspaper provides checks and balances as the Fourth Estate of government. Newspapers are not the enemy of government — rather they are the champions of ordinary men and women.

The videos produced inside the Best Of platform led the launch of Studio Sumter, a video production arm of the company that now holds the majority of the video production opportunities in the Sumter region.

Best of Sumter direct revenue grew from $27,000 in 2017 to nearly $140,000 in 2018, more than 5X growth in the contest’s 18th year. Publisher Vince Johnson of The Sumter Item talks about the largest single project in company history.

Great column in the Brownwood Bulletin about the importance of newspapers!

This week, October 6-12, is National Newspaper Week. Its theme is “Think F1RST,” using the numeral “one” instead of a letter. It highlights the fact that the First Amendment to the Constitution guarantees freedom of the press. While all constitutional freedoms are precious, the five listed first — free speech, religion, press, assembly, and to petition the government — were priorities for our nation’s founders. You exercise your freedom every time you read a newspaper.

We're coming up on the anniversary of the vicious attack on the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967. Attacked by Israel. 34 U.S. sailors murdered. 174 wounded. Blood-soaked deck. Body parts all over the deck from machine-gun fire and inside the ship from a torpedo. This black operation was planned to sink the USS Liberty and blame it on the Arabs. President LBJ covered up the attack on the USS Liberty. President Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) should have been tried for treason and accessory to murder (victims on the USS Liberty) for his corroboration with the Israeli government. It wasn't an accident! It was a cold-blooded mass murder. As a former soldier in the United States Army, I bitterly resent this kind of attack on the U.S. military. And the U.S. Congress should investigate this attack in our military history. Did my country's (USA) government monetarily compensate the USS Liberty survivors and their families? NO!!! Did the nation of Israel compensate these families? NOPE! That attack was a crime against peace and humanity! SEE & HEAR the attached video on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLr9fjg6cmM My radio interview with Ernest Gallo, USS Liberty survivor, in 2018 turned into a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlIXjAyZJf0
