Tax day terrors?

Another reporter here, who refused to be identified, said tonight is the night the worst TV reporters in Colorado Springs are on display. His theory is that every station will do Tax Day stories, one of those classic non-stories everybody does (including the Gazette), and news directors will send whoever is in their doghouse to go watch people wait in line at the post office. Not much different from watching paint dry.

You could just as easily turn this around, however. If a reporter produces anything remotely watchable or even a tiny bit interesting out of this dud, he or she is a journalism god.

Andy, any thoughts on the FOX announcement with their 187 affiliates and bringing their shows online starting soon.

I think it's six hours the first year available online, and then ramps up to all shows online by Year Three.

That's very nice, I believe. Of course, my productivity will go down, but then again I work for NewsCorp, so I'm sure Uncle Rupert won't mind. ;)
