Newspapers Battered By Outside Forces; Local TV News Death Is Suicide

Newspapers are dying because electronic media and the Internet blew up the old model.

But the death of local TV news is entirely self-inflicted, and is on full display every year when the snowflakes fall - - in the winter.

TMJ4 used the word "severe" to describe the weather event that showed up here in the late afternoon when there was a little snow on the grass and very little accumulation in the viewing area.

Even the worst of the projections didn't rate a severe labeling.

You mean TMJ4 "HD"... What next "Here's John Malan HD"... "Thanks Carol HD"?

And yes, everything is "severe", everything is "live", and everything is "breaking news". :P
