RHODES TELLS WMBF – TOP PRIORITY – DEFENDING OUR BEACH FROM #FAKENEWS Attacks

MyrtleBeachSC.com does ask this one question: “What media source in Myrtle Beach is most responsible for holding Myrtle Beach officials accountable?”

After participating in the Mayoral debates on a Myrtle Beach Area Chamber Of Commerce subsidized TV station, WMBFnews, last night, Mayor John Rhodes spoke with the channel about what he felt one of the city’s top agenda items would be if he were re-elected.

DEFENDING OUR BEACH?

On air Mayor Rhodes stated, “I am tired of hearing of the chicken littles out there with all the crazy fake news… that they live in this area… that all they want to do is hurt this community.

I am tired of hearing that we don’t have a great quality of life in this city.” Rhodes added.

As to reporting Fake News,  the owner of MyrtleBeachSC.com has had his car tires slashed multiple times after we posted articles about certain issues in Myrtle Beach.

This after writing an article about a downtown shooting in 2015

DDOS ATTACK
2017 – Over 12 DDOS ATTACKS HAVE BEEN WAGED ON OUR NEWS SITE

DDOS attacks began occurring on our servers non stop,  shutting down our websites.  We have experienced over 23 such attacks in the past two years.

Brad Dean and the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber spent millions of tax-payer dollars stating Myrtle Beach had no water quality issues.  Area news anchors,  including Bob Juback of WBTW, parroted those same remarks with statements that included MyrtleBeachSC.com’s reporting was “not entirely true.”  Juback never stated what was not entirely true, however.


MILLIONS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS SPENT ON THESE HALF TRUTHS

Myrtle Beach elected officials including Councilman Randal Wallace and Mayor John Rhodes have attacked our coverage ongoing as FakeNews.

Non-elected officials that include MBACC President Brad Dean and City Manager John Pedersen have as well.
