In specific, remember a while back I wrote about the MAPS tax vote? The one where the mayor said it would 'energize the city', etc. ad bullshit? The one where the police and fire department unions were warning that they were short on people and equipment now, and this would stretch them further? Well, most of the local news weenies(That'd be KOCO, KWTV and KFOR) went along with the mayor's plans and didn't really ask questions about various, ah, 'problems' and 'associations' involved in this mess.
One- ONE- station, KOKH, the local FOX affiliate, has reported that along with a bunch of other cuts being made due to the economy, Oklahoma City is going to lay off a bunch of cops and firefighters; none of the other 'news' stations are saying one damned word up to this point. And there's not ONE DAMNED WORD about it on their websites. All kinds of OTHER stuff, and about the layoffs in Tulsa, but NOT ONE WORD ABOUT THE POLICE & FIRE LAYOFFS IN OKC.
The Mayor, Mick Cornett, just gave his 'State of the City' address, and of course said not one damned word about it. And there's nothing on the city website right now.
During the leadup to the vote, just about the only one bringing up a lot of the questions was a guy named Mark Shannon who works at KTOK radio; he's got stuff up on his blog about it, but KTOK doesn't have ONE DAMNED WORD that I can find on their website on this crap.(past stuff of his here, for one)
KOKH did a report on their news show; all they've got on their website is this, but the actually have reported on this steaming pile of crap.
KWTV, KOCO, KFOR, you suck. You didn't do the research on the conflicts and bullcrap before the vote, and right now your websites don't have a damned thing on these cuts that I can find. You're some miserable excuses for newsmen. Or 'reporters' if any of the female employees get their knickers in a twist at my using such an old-fashioned word.
On second thought, you can't bother to report on this stuff? Screw you.
