Why I Hate Local TV News: Reason #4,321

Really, all four stations should combine and use one common tag line: “We Make Mountains Out of Molehills!”

All week, they’ve been trumpeting a planned protest against Oncor. Finally, yesterday, after daily publicity, the Great Protest occurs — and “almost a dozen” people show up. What does “almost a dozen” mean? Eleven? Ten? Ten and a small child? I give WFAA credit, though. Even when nothing came of it, they still had the cojones to run the story again. For which I can only say, it must have been a very sloooow news day. No wars, no health bill, no financial stress, nothing else much going on.
