Breathitt County Is Basically A Giant, Hot Mess

October 10th, 2014 · 5 Comments

Fascinating to see WKYT finally get interested in the Joshua Powell mess. Unfortunately, the station continues a string of lazy, unoriginal reporting in Lexington by not only using our footage (hello? you can see our logo on screen for a moment) but not bothering to provide proper attribution. That’s effectively plagiarism and the station has [...]

September 12th, 2014 · 3 Comments

We hear through the grapevine that Montgomery County Schools superintendent Joshua Powell’s trial could start around January 12. It’s expected to last as long as nine (9!) days.
