If lightning hit a tree and it fell to where I was twenty seconds before, I would probably pee my pants a little.

But I'm pretty sure I'd be the only one to find it interesting and scary and "almost getting hit by a tree".

And here's Joe with the weather...

I expected an actual news fail.  Not sure where Madisonville is, but not much happens in small towns.  Local news teams jump all over seemingly mundane things like a tree falling over.

Just a few weeks ago, our local news had security camera footage of a lightning bolt as their top story.

Last night lightening struck about a half mile from my house and almost hit me.

At least the rain would cover the stain.

It can strike from up to 10 miles away even is there are no clouds where you're standing. That's the joke.

I've seen lightning before.  It's pretty awesome.

If he works in Madisonville (affectionately referred to as "Madville" in Cincinnati), he's probably dodging bullets on a daily basis.  This tree is nothing.

I was sitting in a chair in the living room when lightning struck a tree right outside the window. It was so close I could hear the "zzzzzweeee" sound of the particles charging up before the deafening crackle boom.

Dihydrogen Monoxide is a constituent of many known toxic substances, diseases and disease-causing agents, environmental hazards and can even be lethal to humans in quantities as small as a thimbleful, yet it's in almost everything and approved by the FDA.  read more

I think the most insignificant "news" coverage I've ever seen is this one.

It's in French, but to sum up :They managed to make a one and a half minute story about a guy who found a fly on a TimBit, complete with the reporter showing us the very same box (holy crap!) where the fly was found, nice shots of the fly-encrusted donut hole, an interview with the complaining idiot boasting that he's the kind of guy who looks at his food before eating it, and deploring the lack of feedback from Tim Horton's head office (due to a civic holiday in Ontario).

That's some fine reportin', Lou....

Slow News Day In Cincinnati?

Cincinnati actually has events worth reporting?

Madisonville is a neighborhood in Cincinnati. Some of it crap, and some quite nice, like most parts of Cincinnati. Even nice parts are only blocks away from crappy parts.

And yes, this is crap newsing. Why, back in my day, we had real journalists, like Al Schottelkotte and Walt Mayer, and we wore onions on our belts....

/lol, Jerry Springer was our anchorman for a while too.

No. Well, not this century, anyway.

Pikers. You gotta be national to really roll the troll ..
Dateline NBC aired an investigative report on Tuesday, November 17, 1992, titled "Waiting to Explode" Chevrolet C/K line of pickup trucks.

It just feels a little slimy knowing that these "news" reporters are willing to go to any lengths to distort a story in such a way as to draw in viewers and get people to click on their videos.

My local news is disgustingly over dramatic about everything.  Every time they have a decent non-biased just reports the news guy/gal, they are fired or leave for better.

Last night a kid was killed by a falling tree.  The reporter gets on and does his over dramatic BS and ends with "This is unconfirmed but we wanted to be the first to bring the news to you!"

Journalism has been dead for 20 years or more.

Whenever a major news story hits the national wires, one of our local news stations invariably has a segment called "The New Mexico Connection". Turns out the connections are tenuous at best.

I saw lightning dance on top of an electrical transformer less than 100 feet from me, then watched as the transformer exploded in a red and black fireball like something out of a movie. I peed a little.

The troll is Subby right? The same one who wrote the article methinks

Reporters were scattered all over the Greater Cincinnati Area pre-storm. Too many. Later, one reporter had to do a straight-faced story about how a tree blew onto a roof, damaging a porch. Just. One. Tree.
Oh, and the neighbors were out clearing the light debris in the streets.
The predicted derecho had fizzled.
Well, the local news' best work is covering the frequently daily traffic violence ('crash, burn, overturn!' on I-75S) but I can't help but think at least one cub was wishing he'd had another Moore, OK or Joplin, MO on his hands.

And rampant homophobia.  Both as a result of skinheads.

Mind you this is the city where a little girl died walking her dog when a snow-laden tree branch fell on her. Trees almost falling on people are a big deal.

Ha!  Reminds me of a story my wife told me -

One of her students, probably 8 years old or so, came in her room and was looking a little queasy.

"What's the matter, hon?" she asked him.

"Somebody threw up in the cafeteria.  It was gross....."

..then, brightening a bit, he said "I bet they haven't cleaned it up yet.  If we hurry I could show it to you!"
