The Roberts Trap is Sprung

By:  Bill Dunne
One of the most overlooked aspects of the year just ended is the vindication of Chief Justice John Roberts -- a vindication that showed up as the national catastrophe known as ObamaCare got rolling.  Roberts may have also doomed Hillary Clinton's chance to live in the White House again... click here to read whole editorial


Fort Fairfield Journal Expands Into Online Television News Webcasting 

Fort Fairfield Journal, November 11, 2014

   Fort Fairfield Journal Editor/Publisher, David Deschesne now has an additional title, that of Producer for the Journal’s new online television news webcasting service launched late last month.

   WFFJ TV is the name of the TV news portion of Fort Fairfield Journal and will feature local, regional and national news pieces produced in-house by Deschesne and posted at the Fort Fairfield Journal website.

   The print edition of the newspaper, as well as the online archived stories will continue as always and be augmented by the TV news site.  “There is a certain demographic that prefers to get their news online and via a short, concise video format,” said Deschesne.  “This service will help to serve those who aren’t newspaper readers to stay informed on current events.”

   The news videos are produced at the same level as a commercial television news station and play directly from the WFFJ TV webpage.  Videos are available in the current MP4/h.264 format that has been accepted by most modern browsers in both Mac and PC, as well as most portable devices.  WebM format is available for Firefox browsers.  The individual browser automatically selects the format it is designed to play, but Internet Explorer users might have to adjust their “Compatibility View” settings to update index pages already viewed and to make the video play properly.

   Michelle Doody is the voice of the WFFJ TV newscasts which vary in length from 1½ to 3 minutes and are digitally compressed to allow for rapid buffering with most internet service providers.

   Deschesne will be producing at least two videos per month for WFFJ TV and plans to increase in the upcoming year in proportion to the support from local advertising sponsors.

  In addition to writing and printing the Fort Fairfield Journal, and producing the television news,  Deschesne also constructs and maintains the website for Fort Fairfield Journal and now WFFJ TV.
