Who are we?
Reply To News is owned by RETN, Inc., a New York based company, comprised of media professionals. We are an independent site for posting responses, commendations and rebuttals to both accurate and inaccurate articles/reports (news). Because we are independent we provide the means to illustrate a more realistic experience.
How did Reply To News come about?
The idea originated many years ago by its founder who’s 75 year old family business was wrongfully scrutinized by the local newspaper in its area. No matter how the company portrayed a proactive demeanor in its operation with full lawful compliance, the local reporter presented his article in a way that did not exemplify these facts. The members of this small business did not have the many options it has today. Back then, they either had to pay this very same newspaper to run their position in an advertisement, or find other means to get the word out. They later found out that one of the editors lived locally and had a personal financial gain to see the operation of good standing halted and sold into a real estate development.
