What is BreakingAC?
In this time of media doubt, it's important to have a news source that people can trust.
Everyone wants to be first, but it's more important to be right. To be ethical. And to care about the community you are covering.
That's where Breaking AC comes in. As a reporter for more than two decades, I have lived by the mantra "confirm THEN report."
In more recent years, I've also learned the value of social media. It allows the readers to get involved, to ask questions, to challenge. I don't believe in ignoring even the insults. Instead, both sides can learn from it.
News is to inform people who are affected. It's to let them know of the good and bad in the world around them. It should also be about letting their voices be heard. It's about looking beyond the surface. News doesn't stop once it breaks. It evolves. It has an impact.
