Who is Ivory Hecker

As human beings, there is only so much information we can retain before we take decisive action, solely based on how we feel. Another important factor we should consider is our information source. Is our source an upstanding member of society, a celebrity, athlete or someone we all adore? Regardless of the circumstances or source everyone should be heard. This where independent Journalism come into play. Independent Journalism provides us with a variety of information and I will explain to you why that is so important in today’s modern world. We are all aware that there are three sides to a story one side, the other side then the truth and in order to make a conservative impartial decision that seems fair, all three factors mentioned above are vital pieces of information that should be considered. Independent journalism also is an effective strategy against the spread of misinformation by opening the floor for debate, which is nothing more than a formal discussion on a particular topic, in a public meeting or legislative assembly, in which opposing arguments are put forward. Independent journalism also promotes and protect our democracy. At the end of the day, we are all human beings with similar feelings living in a word with similarities leading to similar feelings, indifferences, desires and wants. Not everyone is able to speak out freely as they wish for a variety of reasons. Some examples can be a conflict of interest, lack of empathy until it happens to you or simply just a lack of courage for whatever reason.

Going Independent

On the Monday of June 2021, Ivory Hecker went off script during a 5 p.m. broadcast, alleging that she is being muzzled by the network and will release secret recordings of "what goes on behind the scenes at Fox. On that Tuesday of June 2021, the station confirmed that she is no longer with Fox 26. They issued a statement through a spokesperson. Fox news reiterated "FOX 26 adheres to the highest editorial standards of accuracy and impartiality," according to the statement. "This incident involves nothing more than a disgruntled former employee seeking publicity by promoting a false narrative produced through selective editing and misrepresentation." Ivory hecker, with regards to our local community developed the strength to overcome a situation that would be considered to be a conflict of interest, identified the problem of misinformation through muzzling and took decisive action by releasing the information to the  our community. I would consider her be considered to be a driving force and role model for us as a people to start speaking up against the injustices going on within your local community, even if a conflict of interest exists. She also proves that it can be achieved through independent journalism as well as the sharing of information to the upcoming independent so they can represent you as a community on issues relevant to your lives and those that surround you.
