Thursday, March 13, 2008
So, I'm watching the 10 pm newscast on WSIL-TV 3. Their fourth story tonight begins...."We're learning more t0night about the call girl at the center of the prostitution scandal involving New York Governor Elliot Spitzer..."
This is the fourth most important story for the Southern Illinois viewing audience?
Keep in mind the Spitzer story first broke four days earlier.
I realize there is interest in such scandals. But until TV news makes an effort to be more relevant to viewers' everyday lives, audience interest will continue to wane.
I'm not trying to skewer channel 3...I'm sure plenty of other stations were doing the same thing.
