Alabama State University's National Public Radio station, WVAS-FM, has been awarded a $25,000 grant to produce special coverage of the aftermath of the BP oil spill that recently affected the U.S. Gulf Coast.

The grant was given by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).

Candy Capel, WVAS station manager, said the money would allow the station to inform the public about a disaster that has impacted an entire region of the nation.

"This grant allows the award-winning WVAS news team to participate, as part of a consortium of public TV and radio stations in the south, on a project that examines the dire consequences of an ecological disaster that has affected the entire Gulf Coast," Capel said.

WVAS-FM, known as "The Voice of Alabama State University," was one of only two radio stations in Alabama to receive the grant money.

"The news team will produce special stories that will take a look at the economic, social and political ramifications of the oil spill," Capel said.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
