It was a big, busy week for our news team to review with significant developments on several stories we have been tracking over the past few weeks – including the Stephen Smith murder investigation, the Georgia Teen Torture case and the now-notorious ‘Rose Petal’ murder.
As if all that wasn’t enough to cover, two separate social conservative scandals broke in the Palmetto State this week … both of which have the potential to impact the GOP electorate ahead of the Palmetto State’s upcoming 2024 “First in the South” Republican presidential primary.
Which reminds me, if you haven’t checked out our recently launched Palmetto Political Stock Index … now is a good time to do so!
This news outlet has been ramping things up following the conclusion of the ‘Murdaugh Murders’ double homicide trial last month, and I sincerely hope it shows in the quality, consistency and sheer volume of content we are producing – including several big Murdaugh updates (here and here) published this past week.
We are just getting warmed up, too, as special projects director Dylan Nolan, research director Jenn Wood and the rest of our team strive to bring our readers the very best coverage of every single story we feature.
Thank you for making that possible with your subscriptions and support!

Anyone else getting tired of seeing endless pics of the dead kid and his Peter lips?
