Patch doesn’t have to wind up in the “bone yard.” I believe the hyperlocal network recently unloaded by Aol can, within five years, be a seriously profitable venture.

It won’t happen through corporate legerdemain or gimmickry propped up with a slick PowerPoint. It will happen if the company’s new owners, Hale Global, go all out for engagement-worthy community journalism that’s responsibly budgeted. And it will happen if they adopt a revenue strategy that’s responsive to fast-evolving trends in ad spending — especially in how programmatic is embracing the scaled audience targeting that’s so suited to a big community-based network like Patch.

PATCH is Reckless and Irresponsible.

PATCH should be under a Full Federal Investigation. The IRS should investigate kickbacks and
Advertising money deals in exchange for political retribution community stories that are written I. False light
And highly defamatory. PATCH is a SCAM

Patch reports inaccurate, misleading community stories for a corrupt buck

Patch is a greedy social site that is paid on political dollars for advertising by corrupt politicians who report fabricated community stories
That are reported by crooked politicians and dirty racist police departments that focus on race and political vengeance
It's worthless media that reports stories with reckless regard god don't like ugly. They'll fall
They did a lot of damage.
