News editor Joey Dauben issued a statement after receiving an e-mail about the video:
"It is with a most humble of spirit that I thank Patrick for his video and his song. I'm simply doing what God told me to do and training others to do the same thing. We must not allow our up and coming student journalists and those interested in getting into journalism take their 'education' from establishment papers. We must show them that there is a truth bias, that our only bias is reporting the truth and defending freedom. I love this newspaper and I'm honored that I've been granted the privileges to seek out and expose political corruption. And I thank our readers for continuing to support us by advertising with us, buying out whole news stands and spreading the message of the truth."
