News2Share's Ford Fischer was almost featured as one subject of a reality show about independent journalism. The show didn't make it to air, but the trailer was released today for what it would have been:

Two years ago, Langley Productions (the producers of "Cops"), reached out to five of my best friends in the indie media and I about the possibility of producing a reality show about us. They shot a mini-pilot/trailer, but the show was turned down by the networks.

Today, Langley released the trailer to us for our audiences to see. While this show will probably never happen, please enjoy this trailer for "Newsbreakers."

On Saturday, I filmed Erin Palette - National Coordinator of Pink Pistols - speak out at a conservative rally in DC. She spoke about why she's made a life's mission out of arming the LGBT community.

A prominent militia member unhappy with a transgender woman speaking at the event had offered $100 to anyone who would "glitter-bomb" her, so she began her speech by pouring glitter on herself and asking for the check to be sent to her non-profit.
