Neavling has garnered a reputation among some in town as a rabble rouser of sorts, but the guy works his ass off. Based on his dogged, consistent reporting on Detroit's fire department, and his persistence to keep city officials on their toes, there's no thinking otherwise about him. For nearly three years now, Neavling, co-publisher of the online outlet Motor City Muckraker, has won over plenty of fans, and found some who weren't too keen on his efforts. But we appreciate his tenacity, and for all his efforts, Neavling deserves the recognition that so many mainstream media outlets in town choose to avoid giving him.
