When my preferred channel for local news led off with the Chiefs pregame hype this week- I changed the channel.
The stories added nothing- in my humble opinion (IMHO)- to a game that had YET to be played- and was doubtful to be won.
As it is- local TV newscasts carry only about 10-12 minutes of actual news stories- generously broken-up by an increasing number of commercials- teasers and happy talk.
To simply play corporate sports-team cheerleader for a week prior to a game yet to be played is an insult and a waste of time for the shrinking number of local TV news viewers.
At least now that the Chiefs have LOST- we sort-of get our TV newscasts back.....
