KTLA BLOWS FIRE COVERAGE

Well, I've been watching a lot of fire coverage over the Internet lately from the LA and San Diego stations in whatever spare time I have had, which has been minimal for the past week. Basically it consists of watching fire coverage late at night or very early in the morning.

Notice that KTLA is getting trashed for its coverage of the fires. LA Observed mentioned that instead of showing the fires, they would flip to show--- Jerry Springer. Keep in mind KTLA used to be a really big station for news in LA. In fact, lots of Canadians are able to get that station up here. They used to show every live news item under the sun, and all these car chases. The old KTLA would never have done that, cut away from live fire news to show Jerry! Jerry! --- not with Hal Fishman around. Hal is likely turning in his grave.

Reporter Stan Chambers would turn in his grave, too, except he's still alive.
