Similar to Vegas, the news dissemination motto of The Villages might be described as “What Happens In The Villages, Stays In The Villages.”
That’s why when you pick up the local paper, closely controlled by the developer, you will typically only see stories that paint the community in a positive light.
Keep up the good work in keeping us Villagers informed as to what’s going on. I believe that it is helpful in knowing how some people try to take advantage of we senior’s generosity and compassion. The approach of our local newspaper in only telling stories that paint The Villages in a rosy hue does a disservice to its readership. A famous eastern newspaper’s motto: “All the News That Fit to Print” is in line with your publication’s approach.

Smart readers know that to get the real news, they must look towards other local websites and newspapers from surrounding cities that cover the not-so-positive stories that The Villages would rather you didn’t see.
But when you consider the fact that last month alone, those other websites and newspapers published more than 1,000 articles about The Villages, you might just decide your time is better spent on other things.
(I would agree.)
That’s where Inside The Bubble Monthly comes in.
Keep up the good work. I really appreciate you presenting that represents both the good and bad things that occur here. I am uncomfortable with the “goodie-2- shoes” reporting put out by The Villages management because it is not realistic. I prefer to hear more balanced reporting. I depend upon your newsletter to provide me with information to provide me with the balance I need. Keep it up. Thanks. – Wayne D.

But we’re not afraid to report news that is controversial, negative to the developer or the development, or that strays from the “rose-colored” views of other Villages related publications.
