Unhappy Person Threatens To “Expose,” We’ll Save That Person Time

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Never underestimate the resolve of someone who has time to rant on social media that legitimate journalism is “fake news.”

BocaNewsNow.com recently received a thinly veiled threat from someone who would “expose” the truth about the website while saying the have the support of the “Black Ops” community. Seriously. The threat comes from someone who apparently doesn’t read much, because we issued a full disclosure statement just days ago, upon announcing 1.3-Million page views in just 4 weeks. Just a few headlines for those who have already moved on to more important things:

BocaNewsNow.com has existed for just shy of a decade. It was founded and is run by Andrew Colton, a former on-air national and local news correspondent.


It’s a hobby. Andrew’s full time job is running his company that produces something called a “settlement documentary” or a legal day in the life video— a production that helps attorneys who are helping people who have been critically injured. Andrew Colton helps attorneys tell their stories through concise video productions that show how the loss of a leg, a traumatic brain injury, a medical malpractice incident, a disaster has impacted their lives. Andrew’s work helps keep these cases out of court which lowers the cost of litigation for everyone involved while reducing strain on the Courts. He is frequently thanked by not just his clients, but by defense attorneys, mediators and Judges for taking a non-sensational approach to simplify the complicated. And yes, these cases sometimes include members of the military and injured police officers.


Ironically — and we use that word based on the source of the ‘threat’ — Andrew is often called upon by defense attorneys to help them show the good that their clients do in an effort to receive lesser prison sentences. When appropriate, Andrew helps these people as well with his “sentence mitigation videos.”

Andrew is retained around the world.

Andrew Colton still cares about journalism. BocaNewsNow.com was founded because major media in the area lost focus of South Palm Beach County. Andrew’s stories over a decade have informed, have led to change, have inspired. BocaNewsNow.com shines a spotlight on the good as well as the bad. It’s called journalism. Hyper-local journalism.

BocaNewsNow.com is not inherently a ‘for profit’ enterprise. Click, don’t click. It’s up to you. If BocaNewsNow.com reports something incorrectly, just send a note. There is never an issue discussing or amending something unintentionally wrong. Accuracy is the most important part of journalism.

But we expect those writing about BocaNewsNow.com to be accurate as well. We may not have access to the “Black Ops Community,” but we do know the difference between fact and fiction.

We thank our readers of nearly a decade for knowing the difference as well.
