‘Man bites dog’ is news

‘Man dresses dog’ just bites. Of the three local television stations Channel 10 has been considered the best of the bunch for years.  They have done some great reporting (notably Jim Taricani) helping to ferret out corruption and providing healthy competition for our one major newspaper. But for the last week or so, Channel 10 has actually been using time on the 6 o’clock News to show pictures of peoples’ dogs dressed up in stupid costumes.  Those idiotic ‘first birthday’ greetings are bad enough, but at least they are confined to the noon broadcast (and I must admit that listening to Kelley McGee trying to pronounce names is pretty entertaining). But spare us the degrading spectacle of Puddles stuffed into a tuxedo and use the time to report on something, anything.
