There is a 9 year old girl from Selinsgrove, PA, named Hilde Kate Lysiak, who is causing all types of controversy amongst morons for being a damn good citizen journalist. She has her own blog called Orange Street News, and this blog in particular has people all butthurt, because she reported live from a murder scene in her town.
In her blog she interviews the neighbors and the cops, and she withholds the name of the victim until the family has been alerted. So basically she’s a million times better at her job than Samantha Allen and she’s only 9 years old. One would think that we could all agree that this is a great thing. In a world where people whine about how soft and whiny kids these days are, here is this girl who goes and gets the big story.
But of course we live in the land of butthurt so the poo-poo parade had to come out and play:
Yea, because that’s the exact same thing. A kid walking down her street with a video camera is the exact same thing as a kid walking into a hospital and attempting to do open heart surgery. That’s it.
Yes, you definitely are a troll Kelly. First of all, she wasn’t exposed to any violence. She was exposed to the outside of a house where a violent crime occurred. It also makes you a huge hypocrite, since more than likely you were a child sitting at home in 1994, watching and waiting for OJ Simpson to blow his brains out in a Ford Bronco on live television.
Running the streets? Yea, that’s what she’s doing. But please, tell me more about how you shouldn’t be exposing your kids to debauchery Sue Mietlowski. Especially since you’re part of the most vile and loathsome fan base that has ever existed:
And you openly support a guy who does nasty things to women’s toes and has a mouth like a trucker:
You are certainly in a position to judge.
There it is!!! She hasn’t even gone to college. Because as we know here at Turtleboy Sports, if you don’t have a journalism degree then the butthurts don’t think you’re a real news outlet. Hilde, I feel your pain girl. You are absolutely a real news outlet, and you’re a million times better than CNN, the Turtlegram and Gazette, and the Boston Globe, who just this weekend had a satirical headline story on their front page.
Ummmmm, because she’s 9? Who criticizes a 9 year old reporter with a blog? Ya know what a normal person would do here Rob? They’d say, “good for her.” Good for this little girl for pursuing her dreams at such a young age. They would ignore any of her shortcomings and avoid criticism because it would make them look like a huge dink. But then again, Rob doesn’t mind looking like a huge dink:
The worst is former Selinsgrove Mayor Sean Christine, who called her work, “sensationalist trash.” Seriously, a grown man said this about a child. Somehow this man was actually elected to be the mayor of something:
What the hell is wrong with people?
Anyway, we couldn’t possibly admire this girl anymore. She’s Turtleboy 25 years ago. And just like Turtleboy, she’s not backing down. Instead of apologizing or retracting her statements she went right back on Youtube and called each and every one of them out for all the stupid things they said:
“If you want me to stop covering news, then you get off your computers and do something about the news. There, is that cute enough for you?”
God Bless this girl. She is a true American hero and the future of American journalism. Hopefully she will NEVER work for a newspaper. Ever. Because once you work for a newspaper you have to play by their rules and your stories get censored by idiotic hacks like Karen Webber at the Turtlegram. The fact of the matter is that blogging is the future of news media. We have the ability to tell the truth and report the facts that gutless editors at newspapers won’t allow. The types of stories and the criticism she receives are eerily familiar. She mainly writes about local news stories that the major media outlets ignore. Like that local business owner who is suing the town of roof parties:
The local Dad who isn’t allowed to attend his son’s preschool graduation:
That guy who won’t take down his Christmas wreath even though it’s spring:
Spencer-East Brookfield School Committee Borough Council who won’t let citizens like her address them at meetings:
Out of control skunks:
Advice columns on the Easter Bunny from her older sister:
A dying municipal economy:
And steadily growing page views:
And just like Turtleboy, she is criticized by local morons for not sugarcoating the truth like Joe Petty does:
Yea Hilde, why aren’t you reporting on smiles and sunshine? Didn’t you get the memo? You’re not supposed to cover and expose the harsh reality of life in your news coverage. Only things that make your local leaders look good.
Anyway, this girl is a boss and we’ve got her back till the cows come home. You go girl!!
