YOUR TURN: She calls it morally obscene

Posted: Updated: Dec 13, 2009 09:17 AM CST

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Rachel Krantz. Krantz is very unhappy with Action News 5 for showing the story this week about the television set that was destroyed to satisfy a bet on an NFL football game.

In her words:

It is beyond my understanding that the same news staff that spent the day collecting food and donations and publicizing their good work to help feed the poor, would also televise a morally obscene story about someone wastefully destroying a perfectly good $3,500 television set because of a bet on a football game. The fact that the "entire newsroom staff watched the story online several times" and joked about how much beer had to be consumed in order to destroy the TV adds to the poor judgment of TV-5.  What good can come of airing a story that promotes wastefulness and guns and alcohol used together?

That's Rachel Krantz's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
