BREAKING NEWS: White House and Secretary of Defense Illegally Ordered Arrest of Mishigamaa Governor - National Reporter B
As previously reported, national media has learned of allegations that the DHS and the Pentagon told the Mishigamaa National Guard to arrest the Governor of Mishigamaa.
Since then, we have learned of far more disturbing developments.
In particular, the White House and the Secretary of Defense gave written orders for the Pentagon to coordinate with the Mishigamaa National Guard to illegally act in Mishigamaa.
According to our sources, it was the Pentagon (and not the Mishigamaa National Guard) that determined that such actions were illegal.
Given that there is written proof that the President gave authority for the Pentagon to act in Mishigamaa, it is now only a question of when (rather than if) the President and her Secretary of Defense are arrested and charge with high crimes and misdemeanours.
Breaking news: politicians evacuated from Yarbrough - Susquehannock Reporter C

Zombie cure? - National Editor
Nutrivend claims to have discovered a cure and will be testing it shortly in the city of Marquette; results to be announced shortly.
DHS and Pentagon Illegally Ordered Arrest of Mishigamaa Governor - National Reporter B
The national media has learned that the DHS and the Pentagon previously told the National Guard of Mishigamaa to arrest the Governor of Misghigamaa. DHS and the Pentagon attempted to convince the National Guard that the Governor was unstable and not fit to govern.
The National Guard subsequently determined that such orders were both illegal and immoral. They consequently refused to comply with such order.
It is unclear at this time whether the order was due to the fact that the Mishigamaa Governor is currently running for president and does not appear to be favored by the White House.
This leads to the question of whether the White House has taken advantage of the crisis to further its own political agenda over the well being of American citizens.
Ordered evacuation in Scranton - Susquehannock Reporter E
Scranton, which has been holding up valiantly under Mayor Andreas Hüttig is now clearing a corridor to Allentown with the help of the national guard. From here civilians will be evacuated to the national guard base in Harrisburg.
Cure being mass produced by NecroTec in Ouisconsin - Susquehannock Reporter D
As we speak, samples of the cure are on its way to NecroTec, Ouisconsin to be mass produced. The states of Adirondack and Wabash are mass creating the delivery systems to be used by the states of Adirondack, Wabash and Susquehannock, who has been delivering the cure.
Helicopters provided by another state, but under the control of the governor of Susquehannock are transporting the delivery system. The delivery system will be filled with the mass-produced cure at the NecroTec factory in Ouisconsin, after which they will fly back to Susquehannock for distribution. Adirondack and Wabash will retrieve their filled delivery systems in a similar way.

Big Pharma, Big Prices – A cure – but at what cost? - Ahao - Naomi Young
The white-house liaison has confirmed that corporations in other states have been asking for zombie samples, but that they are offering nothing in return. She stated her worries about the price of any cure, that it may be vastly inflated. She also confirmed there was no governmental research going on, that the only research was the pharma corporations, so it seems that people will literally have no choice but to pay whatever the companies are asking for.
Correction to Presidential nominees - National Editor
Governor Hollman is the VP nominee and Governor Osa is the Presidential candidate
Whatcha gonna do when they come for you? - National Reporter A
It has emerged that the big four pharmas are hoping to put their heads and resources together to develop a single cure for the ongoing phenomenon.
Bay City has now also appealed to the White House for help to bomb the city in light of the ombie overrun.
However, neither the pharmas nor Bay City have heard any responses from the White House.
Perhaps everyone at the White House have now taken to relaxing at the golf course whilst planning for the 4th July celebrations?
In Its Hour of Panic White House Hides from Press and Public - National Reporter B
In the midst of an ongoing crisis where transparent leadership from the White House is more important than ever, the President and her support staff have become increasingly paranoid about the role of the press. On numerous occasions when asked for comment on various aspects of the situation, the President has stated either, “No comment” or “We are dealing with it” with no further explanation.
The unwillingness of this administration to inform the public what is being done to stem the tide of bloodshed and chaos is a cause for grave concern. This great country has always depended in significant part on the role of a free press to inform the public and keep tyranny in check. This is the why our Founding Fathers enshrined the rights of a free press in the First Amendment. For as long as the White House continues to refuse to provide substantive comment and input to the press, it is clear that the administration values its political reputation more than the most important values of our nation.

Homeland Security: We Have a Cure – Distribution by either Aerosol or Dart - National Reporter B
Homeland Security has informed national media that they have developed a cure and have developed two delivery methods: aerosol and darts. They are currently in the process of determining which method to use. While the national media welcomes this news, it is intriguing that numerous state and local governments appear to have developed a cure before the federal government. Perhaps the federal government’s prior preoccupation with nuclear weaponry, which has been confirmed through confidential sources despite protestations to the contrary from the White House, was the cause of the federal government’s lackadaisical behavior.
Badger News Site Hits New Record - Badger News

Susquehannock military liaison has been arrested for high treason - Susquehannock Reporter A
The department of Homeland Security has arrested the military liaison of the governor of Susquehannock. Military liaison Rombouts is accused of high treason because he asked the Pentagon liaison to “join his revolution”. Reportedly he also didn’t follow orders before this.
Before his arrest, reporter Tapia of Badger News managed to meet with liaison Rombouts. Asked for a reaction, he declared that he was not talking to the federals anymore because he felt he was being ignored, manipulated and mistreated by the government, so he wanted to do things on his own.
Update: Military liaison Rombouts has escaped from custody! This may have been an inside job.
White House: 4th of July Party Still Planned Despite Mass Casualties and Panic - National Reporter B
Despite massive casualties across the country, numerous states of emergency declared, bombing of American cities by US federal forces, and unprecedented panic, the White House continues to plan to go forward with its 4th of July picnic. It is unclear if the White House will learn that the lives of its citizens takes precedence over hot dogs and burgers.
Mass panic across Mishigamaa - Mishigamaa Editor
Following the mayoral confrontation with the state governor, there are reports of mass panic and riots across the entire state, with some reports claiming that the National Guard are beginning to desert their units to return home to protect their families.
The governor stonewalled the mayors’ demands and has refused to step down or declare a State of Emergency.
– Romero: Still defended, but situation is deteriorating. May re-instate emergency declaration. Rebuilding field hospitals and fortified base of operations with LexCorp. Mayor now declared “Interim State Governor”, and will attempt to run defence of state from there.

Nutrivend Sends Dangerous Research Specimens to Shawnee News Office - National Editor
In an act of incredible ineptitude, Nutrivend has sent dangerous research specimens to the Shawnee News Office, unnecessarily endangering the lives of our colleagues and setting back future research efforts.
Where’s FEMA - Powhatan Editor
The National guard was never meant to be an army yet they have to like one why? FEMA or the federal have been called by the state of powhatan though they have not come. There has to be some blockage on the federal level for why this is happening. Most likely someone maybe in the pentagon or the white house has partnered with the corporations so they can get something out of it
Bombs fall in London - Northland Editor
London Ontario has taken drastic measures against the undead menace. An airstrike demolishes areas next to Lake Erie, taking out zombies and abandoned homes alike.
“This is our second airstrike,” the mayor said smugly. “Our FIRE trucks have also proven quite effective. I’m sure there were no civilians in the area.” The mayor was wearing a horrific zombie skull as a helmet at the time of the statement, appearing totally unafraid of infection.
Failed coup in Yarbrough - Susquehannock Reporter E
The deputy mayor of Yarbrough who was percieved dead after being shot in the chest suvived his injury and is now up and about again. The mayor of Yarbrough was the victim of an assassination attempt, allegedly engineered by the chief of the Yarnbrough police who was desposed of his office following the allegations.

While the assassination attempt was commited using a police weapon the former chief of police denies involvment with the crime.
Governor Jon Drops Out - Powhatan Editor

Governor Jon is now running to be reelected as Governor, with Mikes support. Mike believes that one of the reasons the Governor is so disliked is that he was dealt a bad hand he did his best and pulled through everything and our city was bettered by his support.
Big four pharmas fighting over a cure - National Reporter A
Whilst Nutrivend had been singled out as the exclusive partner of the White House earlier, it now appears that the big four pharmas – Weygand, Necrotech, Lexcorp and Nutrivend are now going head to head against each other to be the first to identify the cause and cure for the zombification phenomenon.
However, it would seem that Nutrivend is still at the head of the pack, having claimed to have sent their first shipment of NutriSpeed to the Grand Rapids Police which had “give(sic) them an edge in controlling the outbreaks in the city”.
Necrotech is currently appealing for additional resources to fund its ongoing research and development, and the other two pharmas have not replied to our requests for an interview by press time.
One would wonder how Nutrivend had such stores of resources and why it has such strong vested interests in this matter.
Wabash in Disarray – Badger News Team Forced to Flee - National Editor

Joint statement from Mishigamaa - Mishigamaa Editor
“We are calling out the Governor to resign immediately, due to her poor decision making and failure to bring in the National Guard to save the people.”
They demand that she either call a State of Emergency instantly, or stand down to make way for someone who will.
They propose the Mayor of Romero City to stand to take the Governorship.
Is this a Democrat plot to take over State government? Or a simple cross-party consensus to deal with a major crisis?
The Governor responded to this with “No comment.”
A meeting is currently underway between the governor and the city mayors. The Bay City mayor is confronting her angrily. More on this story to follow.

During this visit, the governor met with the Erie mayor, who is currently a patient in the hospital. The governor was very impressed with the medical staff of the hospital and how they managed with the limited resources that they have available.

On the way back, the governor and his personnel saved the family of the mayor, who were in an area swarmed with zombies.

Official statement from Homeland Security states that they are:
- continuing to work closely with companies and universities to develop cure
- work is progressing quickly towards this aim but we urge citizens to remain calm
- continuing to follow all leads to investigate the source of the outbreak
When questioned about this further, the Press Liaison Officer was not at liberty to say why the Federal line has not changed since the initial outbreak. Surely some more concrete action needs to be taken to help our country, which is being ravaged by an infectious zombie outbreak that seems to be out of control.
But as Homeland Security says… “don’t panic”
FEMA Finds Majority of Corporations Uncooperative in Face of Crisis - National Reporter B

Romero City – A tale of two political parties - National Reporter A
The citizens of Romero City will be given VR headsets in what seems to be a bid to blind them to zombie attacks and questionable political campaigns.
Along with the announcement of free VR headsets, the Republican state governor, Maria Osa, has announced her candidacy for President. In an interesting twist of political fate, her candidacy is supported by Pollyana, the Democratic Romerean city mayor. This would be America’s first cross-party liaison for Presidency.
When questioned if this was the right time for the State to be spending funding on VR headsets, the representatives from Romero City remained adamant that this was the right thing to do, as the VR headsets seek to ‘educate the public’ about calm in the current state of turmoil.
The result of the liaison between Democrats and Republicans remain to be seen, as that between VR headsets and zombie attacks.

BREAKING: Weygand and Government accused of creating outbreak - Mishigamaa Editor
The Free Militia have captured Waygand Corp HQ. On interrogating their records they have found evidence that their lab in Bay City was the originator of the outbreak and that they had been working with the Federal Government.
This links in with previous reports that a LexCorp facility in Bay City could be the source, which was being investigated by local police forces, and observations that the State Government abandoned Bay City to the hordes very early on, rumoured to be a coverup for their corporate dealings.
The Governor denies this, and claims that National Guard deployment were unable to get into the city to assist. As a result, they had to quarantine the city.
More on this story as it develops.

Ground Zero closer to discovery - National Editor
An unnamed but impeccable source has told us that Nutrivend caused the virus outbreak.
Apparently they’ve been stealing corpses for study for a while now, and their blundering experiments unleashed the virus.
Our reporters will be following up on this to find out what else the company has been doing, since it moved its headquarters to Missigama.
I’m sure the Mayor of Misquitte isn’t quite so happy to have asked to be quoted as saying that Nutrivend would bring a huge amount of benefit to the local community in the form of job creation when Nutrivend first opened its new headquarters less than a week ago.
Yarborough Police HQ overrun - Susquehannock Reporter D

Romero City expected to raise state of emergency shortly. Mayor wishes to offer assistance to more of the state, while the State Government praises them as a model of how to react under a crisis.
Bay City however, is to be placed under State Lockdown, evacuated and abandoned. Press announcement from State officials to be expected shortly. A anonymous source from within the police department blames this on the Chief of Police failing to negotiate adequate resources and failing to make use of state supplies, while the State Governor promised assistance from the National Guard which never materialised. My source believes that the city was abandoned by the state right from the state of the issue. Was this a ploy to prevent full investigation of the LexCorp facility?
Marquette is not doing too badly, but has major divisions among its officials. The Police and other Emergency services are no longer cooperating in tackling issues, while the Mayor is reported to be campaigning instead of coordinating the defence efforts. She reportedly abandoned
Grand Rapids is now the last of the five major cities to declare a state of emergency. The Mayor would like to issue a bit shoutout to the efforts of all its emergency services.

BREAKING: Secret Lab in Bay City origin of outbreak - Mishigamaa Editor

BREAKING: WABASH HAS FALLEN - National Reporter A
ERRATA- We would like to apologise for referring to the state of Wabash incorrectly as ‘Boyle’, as we were quoting verbatim from the President (who apparently had a ‘covfefe’ moment, bless her)
BREAKING NEWS: The city of Wabash has fallen to the ‘infectious disease’ that has been sweeping America. The President has expressed that her thoughts are with the city, but does not see the need to declare a state of emergency just yet.
Governors of cities overrun by infection are urged to reach out to the Federal Government to request for aid. The President made reference to cities who have previously showed resistance to federal aid, and continued that Governors and the Federal Government should be on a two-way street as the Federal Government will not be able to provide aid effectively if information is not volunteered to the Government in the first instance.
The President continued that the Government desperately needs more information to “understand the situation”, but assured this paper that the Federal Government is prepared and adequately supplied to extend aid to cities upon request.
When pressed further, the President refused to comment on the the two captured specimens. However, from a separate conversation this paper had with FEMA, we understand FEMA is reaching out for help from corporations to aid the Government in its time of need, with regard research on the captured specimens. The President is, however, still debating if the famed 4th July Picnic on the Gardens should still go on.
The conversation with the President and FEMA underscores the current state of turmoil within the White House, as lack of information and panic permeates through each level of the Administration.
God bless America.
