Q. What is New Media Reporting?

With the on-set of the Internet, getting information to the public has changed dramatically.  Within moments of an event, a web page can be published and served up to the world.

Combined with digital imaging technology the public can instantly access recordings of meetings and events they normally would not have time to attend.
New media is able to efficiently fill the user's request of "Show me what happened" with video recordings, while traditional media users have had to settle for "Tell me what happened".

Unfortunately, the trust in old media is dwindling. Public awareness of agenda based publishers and biased reporting practices has created a demand for "verifiable" information.

Our Total Video reporting allows the public to see things for themselves without editorial comments. They clearly can get "The facts and nothing but the facts."

Q. Are you really a "Daily" Record?

Our goal is to have something to add to The Record offerings every day.

We work to have City Council and School Committee meetings on line the next day before noon. On those occasions when there are multiple meetings on the same night, it might take us a bit longer.

Often we post the meeting schedules for the day and for those times when there just isn't enough Front Page material, we feature our ever popular live "World Cams" .
