WaterCheck Blog Drills For The Big Water News


by Leslie Gabriel June 29, 2015

Our blogging team at WaterCheck.biz has partnered with journalist and media specialist Johnny Burnham to dig deep into the issues -- both good and bad -- that encompass water. Both Burnham and Gabriel are hoping to shine a light on a topic that is important in the lives of everyone, but is often overlooked when it comes to garnishing proper media attention.

"Having been a professional journalist for better than a decade now, I've seen and experienced first-hand how the news media will often times pass on covering important issues; issues that affect the everyday lives of all of us. When these issues do get some coverage, specifically those that center around water, more times than not it's just a broad overview of a general issue. When Leslie Gabriel came to me with the idea of turning his blog into a place where people can truly read about these important water issues, both good and bad, and get a detailed story -- the whole story -- in one place, I jumped at the opportunity to get involved," Burnham said. "What makes this project so intriguing is that I truly believe the content can make a difference. We want to open up everyone's eyes to what's going on."

Burnham's first four stories, a series which looks at some of water's "Bad Boys" -- the likes of Nestle, the dangers of "bomb trains," the explosion at the Indian Point power plant in New York, and a breakdown of some of today's corporate water criminals -- can be read on the blog now.

“We are thrilled to have award-winning investigative journalist Johnny Burnham join our team. He would be providing a whole new edge that only a professional journalist can.. Burnham will pull no punches when in it comes to water news investigation, which will provide our readers a new level of insight into the water news they care about,” Leslie Gabriel, CEO of WaterCheck.biz, said.
