Central States News: Omaha's Imported TV Newscasts

Further evidence that America's news media is failing it's citizens comes from Omaha Nebraska- where Omaha's FOX News affiliate KPTM doesn't even produce their own newscasts- they are imported from Davenport Iowa!


Omaha is not the only market where this local news deception is occurring- according to the Independent News Network's Web site

Probably not too many Omaha viewers could tell the difference where the nightly anchor giggle-fest and fluff news was originating.


Regardless- it seems KPTM's FCC license could be challenged by local residents making a good case that the FAUX affiliate is not serving the Omaha market by importing local newscasts from another city hundreds of miles away.
