Niagara Gazette — News, to them, is a shameful waste of the power of television. Consider a hypothetical car crash in your neighborhood. Somewhere on the Internet, and later in a newspaper, you’ll learn the details. Watch television and you’ll see little more than dramatic video of the street sign at the intersection where the accident occurred.
A story about Congress? You’ll get a nice, stock view of the Capitol building. Any story about taxes or personal finance? Sit back and enjoy a brief tape of money being manufactured at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Even graphs are hard to come by on television; they probably laid off the graph guy.
This stuff used to be better, and it could be great. It’s not.
