House Representative Andy Gipson said he’s had enough with what he considers fake journalist. So, he called for the formation of the Mississippi Responsible Journalism Initiative (MRJI). The slogan, “The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth.” It is a grass-roots, citizen based organization whose sole purpose is to identify false reporting and issue a truthful response for the public.
Gipson said his new initiative will hold news reporters accountable for what they write.
True and false reporting isn’t a new thing, but Rep. Gipson said it all came to a front after a piece was written about him by a local reporter he had never met named, Ray Mosby.
