New Orleans - 12/10/2017 Bishop Toris T. Young and the Episcopal board of directors, held a press conference via conference call following the 12:00 noonday

service at the New Orleans worship experience. The topic on agenda was a grave concern about several news outlets in the city of New Orleans using the media

to pump fake news. Bishop Toris T. Young spoke to the fact that several outlets reported in there stories that He was the former pastor, and yet all facts show

that at no time He became a former pastor and no one associated with any of the 10 different church organizations he lead has reported such or confirmed these allegations which are false and fake. These falsified news stories manufactured for monetary, racial and political gain must be confronted and must cease, it is a disease that as leader we can not stand by and allow this type of manipulation in the press to continue. The people can only reject the false reporting if they are showed the facts and all sides are given in order to share fair and balance reporting. Board member Elder Joseph D. Tate "The news outlets who reported that Bishop Toris Young is the former pastor is a clear example of fake news and other statements made that was not issued by the church or it governing board any and all news stories in the public that state Bishop Young is the former pastor is a falsified story and we as a church and board must push back and demand that the fake reporting cease. We have millions of followers around the world and what these local outlets have attempted to do is make stories that benefit there personal agenda, not all media in New Orleans is bad for the people but there is a few who want to be in the driver seat as far as the economic, political, educational, religious and social agenda for how the people of New Orleans think and decide what they should do for the best interest of themselves and family have been affected by this type of fake news. While Bishop Young said on the call that He is a defender of the First Amendment "we must confront those who attempt to hide behind it to spread false information and we must confront, expose, and advocate for a fair and better outlet who will do what is right by all people and share fact based news. All we want is accurate news not news that is tainted by others who have there agendas, to tell a lie in order to avoid telling truth". There are stories that these same outlets will not even cover or decide not to run the story if it does not fit there agenda this must stop and the only way to stop it is through this announcement to counter stories that we have found to be false or misleading to the public. These outlets refuse to cover positive stories that African American and other minority citizens present and lack diversity in there hiring practices. Greater Bibleway Church International News will began to expose these types of networks whenever they report stories that are fake or promote a political, manufactured, fake, false or attack those who there networks disagrees with (GBCIN) has created a platform for the public to report these stories and we will investigate and publish the truth to expose these type of news outlets. Those who have no voice have been walked on beat on and enough is enough the creation of this platform to allow those with no voice to bring facts and truth and share it with those who seek truth and have no other purpose or agenda baked into what is reported and what is not reported


Bishop Young said we dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the world go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of New Orleanians-born in this century, tempered by war; discipline by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this city has always been committed, and to which we are committed as spiritual leaders and concern for the state of information shared with our people.


Let every city know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of truth in our media, this much we pledge-and more.


On today we give notice to all those outlets who attempt to share false news in order to promote a agenda your days have come to a end. Through (GBCIN) we will bring forth truth and will confront false news whenever it shows its ugly head. Readers have a right and should always get the truth and the whole truth without a bias opinion. At no time Bishop Toris T. Young became a former, and these fake news stories are on notice.
