The Sad State of Local News

Written by commonsensejournal on May 1st, 2006

Local news stations often do deal with important issues, from government corruption and waste to “on your side” style news segments. But sometimes they focus on scare tactic–”your water may be killing you, find out why at 11″–or just fluff. Either way, they talk way too slow. And apparently this Alabama news station ran out of ideas, so they interviewed a bunch of people about “leprechaun sightings.” My favorite parts include when the guy talks about his pipe he plays, handed down to him from his Irish ancestors and the sketch of the possible “leprechaun.”

They’re after me lucky charms!
