As most know, I am from Northeast Ohio. I live about 40 miles southwest of Cleveland. I work on the east side of Cleveland.
Two items from NE Ohio made national headlines yesterday. There was a school shooting spree in downtown Cleveland, and a train derailment up I-90 a bit in a town called Painesville. Very rare that you would have two news events of that magnitude happen so close together on the same day.
Ohio Media Watch, a blog that was started as a hobby by one who has posted on the same message boards as myself, and the inspiration for me to start this one, has some very good inside information on the coverage. The shootings occurred within sight of the WKYC/Channel 3 studios. I know some of the folks who stop by here appreciate good media coverage and that's why I wanted to bring this to your attention today instead of when I do my next blog review.
And since I don't watch a lot of television news, I am calling on my two experts-Bizdecision and newsnomore, to maybe give me and my other readers their take on the coverage. But I won't limit it to those two. Anyone who wants can give an opinion of the coverage.
