Both fair enough I guess.

Bit of a sad state of affairs, I guess the Trust (and OSC to a point) are the only ones left that will at least try to do some digging. Unless it blows up enough for the nationals to take another look.

There is plenty enough in the public domain already to run quite the splash with minimal new work, you don't ned an investigative journalist just someone who can write, the fact that the Adver and BBC seem loathe to run with it says a lot about their apathy to the club and local news in general.

Local journalism seems to have mainly dropped to the levels of trawling twitter for local stories that people are outraged about. Up here just about every story is published on Facebook with a comment like 'What do you think about this' and then tomorrow they run another story with all the social media comments.

You would have thought that now Power is hightailing it out of Dodge, there’s nothing to be lost by whomever asking a host of impertinent questions. Especially as we all know he won’t answer any of them.

TBF to the Adver at least I think on the rare occasions they actually report something the final line is normally 'We approached the Club for comment but nothing has been received to date'.

It would be nice to just have the issues we are all talking about ‘put out there’ so at least he knows everyone is on to him.

Kind of suits Power to have banished the adver from all communications months ago doesn’t it. Maybe that’s why the BBC have what appears to be little or nothing to say on the matter, they don’t want to rock the boat and be excluded too.

The BBC are rights holders and as such, their hands are tied. They also.... know what side their bread is buttered.

The Adver are hamstrung by the fact that local media is broke. It simply doesn't work commercially. Why would they invest in a story, when there is no money to be made (unless they take a brave leap and put it behind a paywall, but the quality needs to come first).

I am not convinced either of these stack up, only insofar as if you compare them with the media up here.

When all the Bury stuff was kicking off the local beeb were not backwards in coming forward, likewise with Bolton, the Bolton News (who are Newsquest like the Adver) seemed to have a reporter on its full time, albeit I suspect this was helped by the fact that he is obviously a fan, I am not convinced the Adver sports reporters have ever been to the town.

I agree, Hodgets always seems quick to correct people when they text the wrong info in or say something against Power as such

V interesting re the Bolton News. Marc Iles has been on that beat for years, and presumably is somehow maintaining a job there through personal sacrifice of some sort (i.e. not interested in moving on).

We've had good local reporters on the STFC beat but they never hang around.
