WBZ, WTAG and CBS
Wed Mar 22 07:12:27 EST 2006
The 3-minute (or so) TOH newscasts on WKOXKS come from AAR. The 60-sec
headlines at the bottom of the hour (just barely) carry CCU's own brand. My
understanding is that these are produced for CCU by Fox. If that is true,
this is one Fox activity that is actually pretty much "fair and balanced."
If so, I didn't know that Fox had the wherewithal to produce any sort of
news that could meet even the most perfunctory test for objectivity.
