low from the public on a daily basis of. what's happening in the rest of sites. that have been some changes before over the years you know. kind of the oh you don't know you know you know i am one of the we came up a wish on which we would inform the public about it. we keep factual information the information is up. to the extant people crossing on a newsgroup or everything that we see how we research it before we put it out. i think. this is the newsroom this is where the news stories is published and is how it's done it like i said a news release i don't. mean for you look at these are all things that were printed music books. this is called. the decks new sticks and we have something called
double decks. with other stories and there's a lot of south florida house i know that's out there but i have in the street. it's hard to work. and this is. what your fourth time. and do with your family hundred s. it's very difficult you have to spend half of the time running out the stories you have to all the time researching all of these things. from where i come from. where special liberia in the story. press freedom it was difficult. because when you publish people come after you you know it was a very tough. my
shot was broken down it was the mahdi each it broke me because. levy who doesn't know where i was dog at the. family and when when it broke out all was lost i said though i get i get myself in the. so i must continue to go out there and he also encouraged me. so i did that a common start. a new friend called me obama used to begin to shoot. my house so they didn't get better shoes and then.
