10 Worst Local Media Moments of 2013

Categories: List This

8.) CBS 5 Found Bigfoot Again

local-media-2013-8.jpg
Every few months, the local TV news crew that claims to be "telling it like it is" reports on possible evidence or sighting of some creature that doesn't exist. And, twice this year, CBS 5 rolled out purported proof of "Bigfoot" -- once with an alleged Bigfoot toenail, and once with some grainy footage of something brown.

I remember when NewTimes used to make an ATTEMPT at journalism. Now they've just been reduced to list making. "10 best this" "10 worst that" "5 things you should do"... Like you've degenerated to snobby high-school elitests composing your lists of whose cool enough to come to your party. 


MAKING LISTS DOES NOT EQUAL JOURNALISM.

Oh the WONDERFUL Arizona republic.... not.

WTF.....

Hendley, seriously You should get the award for the biggest "news bully" in 2013 sir! and since i have a little time I'll let you know what i think about your "top 10"


Story # 10: Look! we don't get to 121 that often, in case you haven't lived in this city long enough to know this. Of course that will be the talk of the day, hell! my co-workers talk about the weather every fucking day of the year!.


#7: Wow Sir Charles does the weather.... "Big Fucking Deal" ~Joe Bidden    (how is that even a top 10?)


#6 Yes I see that all the time in the news, when they say last year it was 10 and we're 10 for this year so far...IT MEANS WE'RE GOING TO PASS LAST YEAR'S 10 FOR SURE!!!

#4: For God's sake give this woman a break Mr. Perfect...at least you get time to make corrections when you copy and paste your stories!


#3: So you think that if the reporters wanted to get the Hispanic community reaction they would be looking for them in Paradise Valley?....or find the Mormon community they would go to South Phx...... get fucking real dude! what's wrong with going there?. stupid political correctness!


#2&1: Give it up dude...stop beating that dead beat horse, do you smoke or what?, either you have a medical card based on your "back pain" or you're just a plain pot head who didn't understand the story behind. And that was about how easy it is to get a medical card, and how there is a HUGE percentage of young and old people applying for it just to get high, now if you don't believe that's true you still live in the moon, I have 10x the respect for Morgan Loew's other breaking stories than any of yours btw. and i thought that was a good investigation.


#9: Confirms my suspicion.. Yeah you get high!...



But don't worry i'll give you a pass on the Big Foot story...That was pretty stupid!

Lol Lisa Eddy. I am surprised when any New Times story doesn't include marijuana or Joe Arpaio. :-)

I'd like to add that there's no such thing as "overdosing" on marijuana...

I bet if you Google "box cunter" you'll get some interesting web sites. Probably not something you want to do at work either lol.

"and claimed "young, healthy" people were being described medical marijuana" I hate it when you're only being described medical marijuana.

Anything written by Matthew Hendley. He doesn't add anything to the stories or top ten lists he contributes to this garbage dump of a paper.
