An on-air boner

Somebody at the editing console at WFAA-TV in Dallas — well, no, that's wrong, because apparently there wasn't anybody editing that day.

You'll need Windows Media Player to see the actual video clip.

You mean this is routine for them?

(And didn't they at one time own a Tulsa station - channel 6, maybe?)

I just know that when I was hanging out with people that were trying to keep a mcdonalds build, WFAA ran a disgusting profile piece about the lady hoping to open the new store, a real feel good piece clearly meant to influence the zoning board's behavior.

Belo has a heavy hand in controlling pravailing opinion in dallas expecially, its not suprising that they picked GWB as texan of the year.

for real news coming out of Big D read the Observer's Jim Shutze

Belo does have a history of sloppiness in its content and its delivery, everything else they do is direct pandering.

Ilyka (in comments at A Small Victory) seems to think the station itself is just plain sloppy. Not everything is a corporate conspiracy, Bruce.
