Channel 6 Breaks 1998 Technology Story

During a report on rumors that ran through Papio-LaVista South High School, OPS-toady-to-be Doug Walker revealed on Tuesday's 10 p.m. that it's possible to have several different Instant Messenger windows open at the same time. Why doesn't this guy have his own technology show?

In a rare episode of stupid banter, Tracy Madden then stunned Omaha by informing Walker that IM is "the way kids communicate these days," instead of using the phone.

Am I the only one who is unsettled by Tracy Madden? It happens when the shot is of whoever is sitting in the male anchor chair and Tracy. The male anchor is speaking and Tracy staring to the left of the camera, never blinking, waiting for her cue. This concentration is highly reminicent of a cocker spaniel focusing on a Snausage brand dog treat, waiting to hear good girl and the treat proferred. Possibly 6 ran her through a non-credit class at Birds and Animals Unlimited in Irvine, California.

I wish they would give credit to the person who has brought online dangers to the public eye.

Thanks to Attorney General Jon Bruning, we are a much safer state. In his public service announcement, he has shown us that online sexual predators pretend to be kids, but actually have long unwahsed black hair, with a Captain Lou Albano mustache and a very wrinkled shirt (because it's obvious, online sexual predators don't own irons or ironing boards, nor do they buy wrinkle-free clothes).

The Dateline NBC episode where they go online and bait rabbis, special ed teachers and others into thinking they would get a hook up with a 13 year old boy was great journalism, however. It showed that these sick bastards can be normal looking, have good jobs (like the ER doctor) and ratted them out. Too bad Channel 6 can't get more creative and create investigative stories like that.
