The geniuses at the newsplex yesterday noted that a man had been electrocuted in Omaha while paining a house and was being transferred to a Lincoln burn unit. What in the world can a burn unit do for a dead painter? Even the scary graphic over Brandi’s cute little head said ELECTROCUTION….get those kids a dictionary. No one survives electrocution.Another notes the latest SuxNews promotion, which sounds more like something the Mighty 1290/KOIL would've offered in 1973:
From the "web channel"And our favorite, from a visitor in town for the holiday:
Channel 6 wants to invite you and nine others for a behind-the-scenes
look at our brand new set.
Complete with a pizza party!
See John, Tracy, Jim, Dave!
Have some pizza!
Boy don't we know it.So I'm watching 6 News because I'm back home in the area and wanted to see what differences there were. Like you said, it's basically polishing a turd.That said, one mistake takes the cake ... and technically, this wasn't even made by the news department but rather the promo dept. Right after showing a newspackage about social networking that was absolutely uninformative and basically inane and speculative, WOWT went to a promo which advertised that exact story, not one minute after the story had just aired.Fucking morons.
