Commentary: News presenter comments on his audience's knowledge; vulgar phrase gets broadcast on a local TV news program

  • I did not like hearing one of the news presenters for WPMI-TV's local news programming telling the audience for today's edition of their local morning news program ("Local 15 Today") they all ready knew about the football team for the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama being awarded the title of champion of the western division of the Southeastern Conference (also known as the SEC) for the current college football season after presenting a report about them having received it (personally I believe news presenters and news reporters should not comment on news when they should only be presenting or reporting it).
  • I was surprised to hear a person using the word "hell" in a vulgar manner in a sports report on today's edition of WKRG-TV's local morning news program (the name of the program was "WKRG News 5 This Morning"; as for the report, it was about members of the football team for the University of South Alabama in Mobile planning to hold their final news conference for their current regular football season today, about whether they would be eligible to participate in a "bowl game" soon, and about their losing to the football team for the Naval Academy of the United States in Annapolis, Maryland). I wish they had not broadcast it was not really necessary for the report (it was a personal comment by a player for the football team for the university concerning the football team for the academy).
