Ernest Pyle is a foreign correspondent and investigative reporter for the Paleocacher News Network. He was born in 1976 and went to the Capital City Institute of Social and Political Sciences where he graduated in 1998 with degrees in Journalism, Political Science, and Foreign Language Studies. He became well-known in Paleocacher as an investigative reporter in the decade of the 2010s. His blog has over three quarters of a million followers. He became an investigative reporter and foreign correspondent in 2015 and primarily worked in Bostonia, Quebecshire reporting on stories related to the Terraconserva Council of Nations. He also has done stories on ongoing civil conflicts in Lyoa and Creeperopolis.
In April 2020 Pyle began an investigation into allegations of ethnic cleansing in Terranihil following a failed TCN resolution to draw attention to the matter. Over the course of six weeks he discovered that a chemical company in Koryo, Dongwha Chemicals, had made shipments of toxic agents to the Terranilian government. He also interviewed dozens of escapee and refugee Malgans residing in Greater Sacramento. Following these investigations he entered the country of Terranihil where he interviewed numerous persons including alleged current and former members of the staff of the Soislaan camp. He launched a drone over the camp which obtained twenty five minutes of footage before he was spotted. He fled the country and returned to Paleocacher. He published "An Exposé of Conditions in Malgan Re-Education Camps". His investigation has brought renewed calls for an international investigation and has triggered protests in several countries around the globe.
In September of 2020, the Terranilian government charged Pyle with espionage regarding his investigation into the Soislaan Concentration Camp. An extradition hearing was held in a Paleocacherian federal court on September 21, 2020. The Paleocacherian government was facing significant external pressure over the issue and a compromise was worked out with a Terranilian prosecutor wherein Mr. Pyle would plead guilty to some of the charges and serve a 25 year sentence in a Paleocacherian correctional center as opposed to a Terranilian supermax prison. He also proffered an apology for the methods he used to obtain his story. Mr. Pyle is currently serving his time in facility, kept undisclosed for his own personal safety. As a result of his guilty plea and subsequent imprisonment protests have taken place throughout the country resulting in legal reforms.
