Nine-year-old reporter Hilde Kate Lysiak is not playing around. Her self-started publication, the Orange Street News, recently broke a murder story in her hometown of Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, before professional news outlets did.

But some adults are upset that she isn't "playing with dolls" or having "tea parties" instead of hitting the streets for scoops on hammer-related homicides. Hilde's now responded to her critics, one of whom dismissed her work as "sensationalist trash," and she pulls no punches in giving them a piece of her mind.
