This is a long overdue article on the subject. While the Main Stream Media lost interest in this case months ago, there are a few of us that have stuck with it. The MSM flit from disaster to disaster, the latest being the demise of Michael Jackson. Jackson was billed as the king of pop. I have to disagree, Jackson had a few hits, but he hardly moved the industry forward. Did he write any of the lyrics? Did he compose any of the music? A resounding NO. Did Jackson stiff people as far as money goes, well yes he did.

Haleigh Cummings was just 5 years old when she disappeared 5 months ago. She had never scammed anyone, well other than a candy bar or two. I don’t have any proof, and I just have to go with my gut feel that Haleigh was just a regular 5 year old. No Ponzi schemes, maybe the odd ‘I need this candy for a school project’ scheme played against some unsuspecting adult, but it was harmless. Just a small young child trying to grow up in the environment she found herself in.

As I mentioned, we are coming up on the 5 month anniversary of her disappearance. The group of us that are keeping her name out there has dwindled. One can only assume that the Law Enforcement effort has also shrunk.

About the only thing that has increased, is the idiocy from the blogosphere. I for one am a big fan of the ‘Citizen Journalist’, it makes a huge amount of sense. The Internet has opened up the news world to everyone. You are no longer shackled by the views of the MSM, there are alternative voices.

Are they right? Well sometimes they are. The Haleigh Cummings case is a great example. People do their best to ensure the accuracy of the information provided, but some sites do little if nothing to check the accuracy of the comments that people leave. Even Emmy winning journalists allow anarchy on their sites.

It was for that reason that we shut down the comment ability on certain threads, instead pointing people at a strongly policed forum site. It was not a decision that we made lightly, but one that had to be made.

It is high time that people got their heads out of grumbling online, and spent some time resolving the case. Quite frankly I doubt that anyone cares who payed the child support to Ronald Cummings. Does this have any bearing on the case? No not at this time! As far as I am concerned it could be the Tooth Fairy, quite honestly I don’t care.

Does anyone care about the allegations that Kim Picazio maybe played in some dark pools? NO but that doesn’t mean we won’t once Haleigh is found.

Does anyone care about Kim Picazio’s husbands business interests? NO, not yet, that is a whole different ballgame.

This whole case has become mired in the stories that are floating around. Oh, do not get me wrong, I am planning on following up on all of the side shows, but I will keep that until we solve the primary case. Where is Haleigh?

Maybe if everyone concentrated on the question “Where is Haleigh” this would move forward. Of course that would be too simple. It is much better to bicker online. At least we at BNN have the guts to use our own names, we do not need to hide behind aliases!
