The fun facts:
Why Roo? Roo became my online tag way way back in the day of local chat rooms. At a loss for a tag that gave no insight into my real identity, you know the old A/S/L deal. I went with my dogs nickname…Roodog. Overtime Roodog was shortened to Roo. Now most of my posts, avatars or websites have Roo in the title somewhere.
Rex the original Roodog (1996-2005).
The serious facts:
I believe that the mainstream news media no longer portrays the truth. It has become a propaganda tool for corporations and political parties.
I am, according to them, not a professional journalist as I do not espouse the “correct’ views.
I am but a humble citizen journalist, as were many of our country’s forefathers. I consider it a high honor to follow in their footsteps.
I am neither a liberal nor a conservative, I am me.
