Yesterday I think we saw just what the future of Breaking news is heading too. No longer is long-after the fact reporting enough. Technology now
gives us the ability to put out real time info for all to follow. I was so proud to be a part of the ATS community who put that info out so quickly,
literally seconds after it happened.
I would just like to propose the idea of opening a forum for those following scanners to alert others to situations that are breaking or are in
progress. It would allow us to follow future high profile cases as they are happening rather than waiting for MSM or others with their own agenda to
present us with biased reports. We would have the facts, plain and simple, to draw our own conclusions from.
And to be honest, I would love to have a forum like this because I am nosy and have a new found love of my online scanner, but can't listen to them
all at the same time
I just put up a thread about a suspicious device found at a walmart in Az. Turned out to be a can of paint that the bomb squad blew to high heavens,
but we got to follow it real time to find out if it was a threat or not. Right now, there is a 3 alarm brush fire in Ca. Don't know if a thread has
been started on it yet, but the FD is battling it at this very moment.
I know we have a breaking news forum, it normally requires a link to MSM who has reported it, or else people get flack. This would be different in a
sense that we may just beat the main stream and can hear it for ourselves as it is happening. So thoughts ATS? Any drawbacks you can think of?
Thanks for reading
