Should Arkansas Watch Also Cover National Issues?

We are considering adding national issues to our format here at Arkansas Watch. In the past we have stuck with state and local issues. In making this move, we hope to add national stories without taking away from our state and local ones. In other words, we hope this would increase the number of articles.

We hope the effect will be to make us a bit more like an alternative version of the Democrat Gazette online (though I doubt we will have a sports section). They have state and local news, but also cover national stories.
What do you think, should we expand our scope? We welcome our readers constructive input on this question.

I love the local issues , But national could pull in other surfers that has no interest in Arkansas issues there by bringing new blood to the mix, But youll also have more anoymous junk , just my two cents

I like the idea, as long as Holt doesn't run for national office. In that case, I don't think I could stand it anymore.

Other than that, go for it.

Dear Readers,

We extend our thanks to you for assisting us in coming to our friend's defense. Ms. Smith seems to have denied her involvement in this. Let us reassure you that is not the truth.

It is our belief that the banner was created upon her computer. We believe the main graphic that was posted on the richard4representative.COM website was created upon Mr. Adams' computer.

Our attention to this injustice was due to the use of the word nupe. Please review your logs and verify the IP addresses from which "nupe" made posts to these blog.

You will find that it is unlikely that Mr. Adams was the one posting for "nupe" and that those posts originated from Fayetteville, AR and the University of Arkansas campus.

Pursue Justice and Peace,

FH&CG&FFD

No, there are plenty of national conservative (and liberal) blogs but not enough focused on Arkansas. With the way the liberals dominate the Arkansas media, we need more alternatives and your best work is heling provide the "other side" to the biased coverage of the Demozette.
