TRUTH METER: MAYOR RHODES STATEMENTS TO SUN NEWS

Mayor Rhodes made an appearance on Facebook Live with the Sun News today campaigning in Myrtle Beach.

Mayor Rhodes spent time on the medium making statements directly targeting our news group.

In his comments Rhodes said: “We have a social media that is called MyrtleBeachSC.com and David Hucks who runs that has never printed anything that is on there that is positive about this city.

As just two of many recent public service articles we have published this past recent month.  It is true, that we cover and hold government accountable.  News is news. Mr. Rhodes can view our news as he wishes, however, we believe the role of the media is to hold all parties in government accountable.

Pinocchio Scale Mayor Rhodes went on to say, “He has done more damage to this city nationwide by putting out false information. Putting out information about flesh eating bacteria in the atlantic ocean.”   MyrtleBeachSC.com rates this a 5 on the Pinocchio scale.

Over 1,100 total news agencies (80 major agencies) ran the Flesh Eating Myrtle Beach story.  MyrtleBeachSC.com did not.  Here are a few examples of those who did.

MyrtleBeachSC.com will not fill up this entire article with links.  We ask our readers to Google it.  The story was covered by Fox News, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, The New York Times and the Washington Post.

Here is our actual story of the city’s treatment after those stories went out across these networks.

Pinocchio ScaleRhodes then says,  “Thank Goodness we only have a small amount of people who read this… not the large numbers he indicates.

We rate this statement in contrast to the statement he just made minutes earlier, “He has done more damage to this city nationwide by putting out False Information.

Even Mr. Rhodes knows these two statements are in-congruent.  MyrtleBeachSC.com rates both of these statements as a 5 on the Pinocchio scale.
