The Heitkamp Political Machine Will Attack Anyone Questioning the Narrative

The Heitkamp Political Machine Will Attack Anyone Questioning the Narrative

It’s ironic that when Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s talk radio host brother really wants to reach an audience he turns to my employers at the Forum Communications Company. Joel Heitkamp had a letter to the editor in the Fargo Forum over the weekend in which he accuses Fargo-based television station Valley News Live of political bias against his sister.

That Breitbart Report About Fargo Refugees With Tuberculosis Is Old News

Over the weekend a number of you readers sent me this link to a Breitbart article which seemed to indicate that Lutheran Social Services, the organization responsible for federal refugee resettlement in our state, had been something less than forthcoming about refugees with tuberculosis. You’ll all remember that this was something of a big issue

Are We Certain That A Protest Isn't Exactly What Valley News Live Wants?

A group of people offended by Valley News Live’s recent reporting about the supposed public health threat of refugees is planning to protest the television news station this weekend.

UPDATED: Lt. Governor Drew Wrigley Did Offer Valley News Live An Interview

I have an update to the kerfuffle over a news report claiming that Lt. Governor Drew Wrigley was dodging reporters looking to ask questions about his affair, and it turns out that Wrigley did offer an interview though not necessarily in the medium requested. Last night TV news station Valley News Live ran a story claiming

Former Governor Ed Schafer Accuses TV News Station Of "Blatantly False" Report On Wrigley Affair

UPDATE: Valley News Live news director Ike Walker has responded to Schafer’s criticism and acknowledged that Wrigley did offer a phone interview. Earlier this evening I wrote a post about a news report from Valley News Live which claimed that Lt. Governor Drew Wrigley was dodging questions about an extramarital affair. Tonight in response to that
