Not how it was, but how it should have been

Tonight on the 6 PM news, KHOU-11 did a story about how the Texas delegation is getting disrespected at the Democratic convention. I didn't pay much attention to it - Tiffany likes watching the local news, but it usually gives me hives - but figured that it was probably just some repackaged conventional wisdom (no pun intended). Maybe if they'd interviewed CateyBeth instead, I'd have paid attention to the story.

Oh, and on a side note, burgeoning media mogul Karl-T was also featured later in the broadcast.

I can't remember if KHOU is part of the Belo media empire or not, but WFAA-8 in Dallas ran the same story. There was a pretty unflattering article in the Boston Globe about the Texas Delegation, so they just went around picking at scabs, so to speak. Ahhh, gotta love the media!

Yep, it's a Belo station. How nice to know they're saving on costs in this fashion. Thanks!

That Belo report also ran on KVUE 24 here in Austin. Three in one.

That same report ran on KVUE 24 in Austin. All Belo stations.
