Good for them. Too bad it’s still terrible local TV news. What they should do is blend in a VJ process and stop doing ambulance-chasing and I’m-standing-outside-a-building-where-something-happened-6-hours-ago “live” reports.

The answer definitely lies in sharing news. News is a commodity. Content is worthless. Context and community are where new value will be found.
