KSAX provides a benefit to West-Central Minnesota only if you consider agenda-driven propaganda news. The only purpose of KSAX is to indoctrinate the local population that only they can commit crimes and the corrupt local officials who engage in criminal activity are above the law. KSAX's staff became extremely hostile when presented with an account of former Douglas county sheriff and current Senator Bill Ingebrigtsen caught on video illegally driving around Alexandria in dealer in transit plates. Video of KSAX's passive-aggressive behavior:

Trying to repair their now tarnished reputation KSAX did begin to report on local corruption. However, it was soon revealed to be a false-front. KSAX reported on a Pope Co. City Council member from Starbuck whose criminal case was transferred out of Pope County to prevent a conflict of interest.

Cedar Inn Owner Michael Dale Moen is charged with one count of financial transaction card fraud. According to the Swift County Attorney Robin Finke, guests at the Cedar Inn left without paying on October 7. … Finke says that the case fell in his lap when it was transferred out of Pope County to prevent conflict of interest. “Public officials are held, and should be held, to a higher standard. We are certainly not above the law just because of our position as elected official,” said Swift County Attorney Robin Finke. Council Member, Hotel Owner Charged With Credit Card Fraud By: Laurie Stribling, KSAX-TV Air Date: 04-28-11. 5PM Broadcast.

A few months later KSAX reported on a Pope Co. City Council member from Glenwood who was charged with a crime. This case was not transferred out of the county to avoid a conflict of interest. The Pope Co. Attorney, who
is also the Assistant Glenwood City Attorney, prosecuted the case. Yet, KSAX never questioned this misuse of public funds nor this blatant conflict interest in their softball interview with prosecutor Neil Nelson.

Pope County Attorney Neil Nelson said the city council member won't get any special treatment during his prosecution. “My office will treat him the exact same way we would treat anybody else who is faced with the same facts,” Nelson said. Glenwood City Council Member Charged with Burglary, Assault. Created 12/13/2011, 7:30 pm,

After Glenwood City Council member Kyle Thompson was acquitted it was determined that Thompson had engaged in perjury. Prosecutor Nelson did nothing about the perjury. KSAX did not report on the perjury.

KSAX is a threat to the safety and security of the people of West-Central Mn. KSAX's propaganda aids and abets corrupt local officials. Therefore, Call Sign: KSAX should not have their broadcast license renewed.
