Fair use rationale for Image:Alturas.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Alturas.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 17:40, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Doubious Source[edit]

(Copied from the Modoc County Talk page, where this is already an issue.)

It may be tempting cite from a source such the local Chamber of Commerce for additional information about a city or county, but in this case at least, the Alturas Chamber of Commerce web site's History page is questionable. While some content seems to be original work dating to 1992, some has been added so recently that Google hasn't collected it into their search engine yet, and it's a collection of snippets of information plagiarized from a variety of uncredited sources. This came to my attention when I recognized some of my own work on their page.

Their original work contains contradictions of scholarly works, without citing a source.

Googling a selection of phrases that should be unique to their page shows that these phrases occurred earlier on other web sites:

This is not to say that the Alturas Chamber of Commerce web site is of no use to us. However, having found information on it, we would be wise to google the phrase we want to cite, in order to find the original source, and determine whether it is reliable.

Re: "Alturas/Modoc County has a local independent television station KMDC on channel 9."

There have never been any Television broadcasting facilities in Alturas. The nearest are in Klamath Falls, OR and Redding, CA, both at least 100 miles away. Further, Modoc County is part of the Redding/Chico television market, for which channel 9 is occupied by KIXE in Redding.

This raises doubts about all unsourced assertions in the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Downstrike (talkcontribs) 05:24, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

There's nothing debatable here. A search of the FCC database reveals no television licenses for the call sign KMDC in Modoc county or anywhere else in the United States. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:44, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
