Oink

Are we the only ones who think the trial of firefighter and alleged "massage" customer Darren Bates in a Council Bluffs courtroom should be carried live on every station?

Camera-hog attorney James Martin Davis, who's defending Bates, delivered a performance on Wednesday that makes us think he's been preparing for this case by watching Perry Mason or Matlock reruns.

Putting Davis in a courtroom with cameras is like putting an alcoholic in a wine cellar.

Hells, I'd want him on my side.

That said, does anyone think Bates is innocent? Where can you find twelve people who fell off a turnip truck? Oh, wait...Council Bluffs...

OOPS - I clearly heard the word blowjob on my TV - no I wasn't watching The Soprano's on HBO... , it was the WOWT news report about this trial. Gary Smalley was making a good effort to report about the trial on Thursday. Someone had some 'splainin to do.

I don't think even the people over there are THAT dumb...!! The person I feel most sorry for is his wife. She's the one that will be hurt most by this even if she is in denial over it.

150.00 for a half hour massage...? Yeah...right! 30.00 for a half hour from a licensed professional. Who does he think he's kidding...?

Hey, Bates got off--NOT guilty! Good for justice. I feel so much safer that the cops are going after johns and prostitues. Never mind that I've been a witness in car accidents and had to wait 90 minutes for a cop to show up (and this is in GOOD weather!)

Guess I was wrong...the people over there ARE THAT dumb...

Congratulations Tracy Madden and Channel 6! You have won the award for the worst tease ever.

"Lots of action on the diamond. Dave has the highlights at ten."

No local interest in baseball right now since the Huskers suck and no one cares about UNO, Creighton, or Royals baseball (no offense). And even if that weren't the case, that is the most generic, uninteresting tease ever! How can you accept a paycheck when you are mailing it in that bad?

"Ten minutes of non-stop news and your hour-by-hour forecast. Ten at Ten." ...suddenly that doesn't sound so bad.

It's 10:06 and Jim Flowers and Tracy Madden are yucking it up about the story that was run about a freaking cat in a tree! Please tell me there's got to be something a little more newsworthy than that to report tonight.

Is it just me or did Sheila Brummer on KMTV get a facelift?
Something is definitely different about her, not just a haircut.
