How big of a love offering will 1819 News need?

By Chris Peeks November 05, 2023

Doug Jones called it "sad and disgusting."  I can think of other terms to go along with those that the former senator used to accurately describe the 1819 News tabloid sensationalist "Witch Hunt that led to Smith Station Mayor, small-town business owner, and Baptist Preacher Bubba Copeland to kill himself. Criminally negligent should be included.

If this is not the definition of fake news, then I don't know what is. I get people who contact me all the time with crackpot stories like these, but I would never dream of writing on something like this. What could have possibly been going through Jeffrey Poor's mind letting Craig Monger write these hits on this man?

Did you want a story? Well, you got one now. And the court of public opinion is not on your side. People are seething over this. This appalling yellow journalism is like what the Nazis did. You people are disgusting, and you ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

Poor asked for prayers for the family. You better throw 1819 News in that prayer request as well. You are going to need a love offering. A big one. After the money you pay out for this wrongful death lawsuit, you will publish no more. And we'll all thank God for that.
