Comments On Local Media

By Thomas Palmer, 1812Blockhouse Publisher

Today marks the beginning of a new regular column here at 1812Blockhouse.

Every so often – how often is not yet set – I will be sharing information and perhaps some commentary about media goings-on in Richland County. We have said this before, because it is very true – as a county, this community has more variety in news sources than most other places nationwide. That’s something which sets this place apart and makes it worth talking about.

As is the case for a few dozen other individuals, I am involved in the reporting, collection, and distribution of information that Richland Countians can use, every single day. Yes, it can be frustrating when one observes the  amount of wasted resources that occurs with so many people telling the same stories. Yes, it’s occasionally stressful. At all times, however, there’s an overpowering sense that what we do here at 1812Blockhouse – telling the community’s stories, whether written by ourselves or by others – is important.
