It’s News Entertainment

You know how pro wrestling is classified as sports entertainment?

Yes, it’s sports. But it’s also entertaining.

The wrestling may be “fake” but the athleticism to execute those hoaxes in and out of the ring require a physical skill set most don’t possess.

Well, Coal Region Canary is a lot like that. It’s the best in news entertainment.

But believe us, the news is most definitely not #FakeNews.

However, we’re not offended by the term Fake News.

Our news is real. The presentation, we hope, is entertaining.

We believe in order for the news to be effective, it must be engaging. Our news takes a side. Our news asks you questions and presents facts in a different perspective.

You may agree with our side. You may disagree. That’s how this whole America thing got started. Feel free to share your opinion on any article you see. You can even use a pen name. Just no reckless accusations, anything that could be construed as “hate speech”, threats of any form, or cyber bullying.

News Without a Pay Wall

The legacy media is dying in front of your eyes. The papers you buy are smaller. They’re lighter. And they’re filled with fluff and stuff you already knew (or thought you knew). And between you and us, we know it’s f___ n___.

So, at a time when news is freely shared with reckless abandon around the internet, these dinosaurs of the media industry lock the door on you. You can tell how a media company is doing based on the pay wall. You’d think this would be a good way to spread their brand to a wider audience. That’s not how they think.

They’re the square peg and today’s news consumers (that’s you) are the round hole.
