  • Faux 6 is fake news

    Typical Faux 6 news “because you matter”. Nearly 7 hours after this was posted the fire is still “near Oakland and Locust”. Well in my non-college degree in journalism experience I can tell based on pictures its on the west side of Oakland 1/2 block north of Locust across from Walgreens. Why do I care, I have a child living a block away. If you clowns at Faux 6 are just going to troll the scanner then don’t put that ridiculous comment about monitoring Faux 6 for updates. ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC JOURNALISM.
