    Funny clip, but inaccurate article. Getting a story from a news wire isn't the same as reading off a press release, and it's not related to who-owns-what broadcaster in Syracuse. And the story about paying employees $50 in hush money? Oooooh, shenanigans!

    There's a reason why the guy who wrote the article is a blogger (sorry, "investigative blogger"), not a journalist.

    What I cant stand is when the two anchors(a man and a woman), each take turns reading a story while the other(always on camera) looks at the other as if they are really interested in the story and are hearing it for the first time. That and the huge smiles during a happy story, and the sad looks at a tragic one. It's just so phoney.
