I could make a few brief comments.
I think that most communities have, perhaps, a community Facebook page, for example. They're not vetted by an editor. It's just a place where people can post their thoughts about whatever subject. It's not always accurate. I know that in some of our newspaper markets we've had to correct those things for the public because a rumour can get started quite easily that way. There's no doubt it's a valid form of communication for many members of our community. Whether it's always accurate is another question.
