>>Remember the train derailment in Minot, ND?  Poisonous gases
were released into the atmosphere in that Great Plains city, 
and a few days later the lack of information about that event
over local radio became a major bone of contention.  Bill
Moyers' "NOW" on PBS led the charge, and it became the subject
of several radio-oriented websites (including this one).
Now something similar has happened near a MAJOR market
in Ohio!  Read all about it at:


The typical, one-sided response, which can be better described as "I
didn't hear what I want, so it's just wrong."  No follow-up, no
questions asked of anyone at WTAM, no polling of other stations and how
they did/didn't respond to the storm.

It sells papers, but it's hardly journalism and it's certainly not, to
coin a phrase, "fair and balanced."
