ATS members are just faster sometimes, but not always. There is a good track record here going back years however on getting news first. In a way ATS
is a like a clearing house for global news stories and especially anything weird or mysterious.
There are many cases of ATS getting a story early in it's development, ahead of many MSM agencies. But also remember that very often these stories are
sourced to smaller or local news outlets, so you can't say ATS "broke the story" in those instances but it was here before it reached a large portion
of other agencies.
Sometimes there are stories actually broke on ATS, and in a way this is a daily occurrence because people telling their UFO or cryptid or ghost
sighting for the first time is a breaking story. And there are some notable cases of ATS actually breaking a big news story, such as (if I am not
mistaken), the Ghost Net story. If I am wrong you can correct me on that.
Here are two threads of interest on the Ghost Net story.
