    I'm going to close this thread because WESH claimed that their information could not be verified. We have a NG thread waiting to be opened for the show tonight. We'll see if someone from WESH comes on to clarify the matter.

    We've already pulled a thread about this topic once. I'll leave this here to remind us that this is not verified as factual at this time.

    Thanks!

    Subject: Fake news story running on Wesh.com

    On Friday the 14th I called your station and talked to a lady in the web department about this news story running on Wesh.com:


    Ronald Cummings Accepts Plea Deal For Drug Charges


    http://www.wesh.com/news/23550990/detail.html


    I was told there was no bases for the article she could find on any of the wire services and the story would be changed. There were no sources listed and nobody has said anywhere that any deal has been accepted.

    Well now I just saw Wesh news being quoted on HLN and Nancy Grace is quoting you as the source to and she is saying WESH TV:

    Breaking News! Haleigh's dad Ron Cummings has reportedly accepted a plea deal for a 15-year prison sentence in exchange for testimony against Misty Croslin & Tommy Croslin, according to WESH-TV. Nancy Grace has the latest, breaking developments every night at 8 & 10 PM E.T. on HLN!

    http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/nancy.grace/

    A friend of mine called your station after I did and was told the story was a misprint. Why is it still up, has not been edited and now being quoted on national TV?

    Thank you



    ..........................................


    He sent me one back thanking me and telling me they were getting in touch with Nancy Grace and HLN to let them know their story has changed and has been updated.
