Accompanying the article about a pedestrian killed on the CSX tracks, were multiple version of an ad falsely claiming a “Police Alert” was issued nearby 13 minuets ago. This is comparable to falsely yelling “fire” in a crowded theater. If you purport to be a journalistic site, how can you allow such dangerous misinformation?

Google cycles some ads often tailored to the browser history of each website viewer.

To purport is to claim to be something, often falsely. We provide news and entertainment for Montgomery County. There is no “purporting.” We promise.

Thank you for reading.

I was a Moco show Patreon subscriber and will cancel my subscription because of what Mr. Cosson is saying. You allowed blatant lies on your website!?

We appreciate your support. I don’t think Mr. Cosson realized the Google ads aren’t chosen by us and rather decided by each reader’s browser history. Luckily, he was aware it was an ad.
We’re thankful for all of our readers and supporters.

Wait so you saw an ad, knew it was an ad, and came here to say they aren’t a journalistic site and that they allowed dangerous misinformation in a google ad that you knew was an ad that they had no say in choosing? and caused a small business to lose a paying subscriber because of your comment? That makes me sad. Please keep up the great work team mocoshow!
