KRNS AM 570 this morning (and for many of the past several mornings) has selected as their "top story" that OJ Simpson has been arrested in conjunction with some crime in Las Vegas. Please. There are probably at least 100 stories on any given day that could "top" that.
Out of a 3-4 minute newscast, KNRS devoted between 30 seconds and 1 minute to tell us all the latest--which was nothing. Such reporting is just plainly and simply lazy. As a result of this august reportage, we now know that
- OJ will be arraigned today.
- Members of the media think they know which door he's going to come out when he walks to court.
- They have measured that he will walk one block to the courthouse
- They are fairly sure that he will be wearing a blue jumpsuit
- They are positive that he will be wearing handcuffs
Mary Shaw of OpEdNews.com also has a very interesting take on this issue.
