News for Sunday, February 15th, 2015

  • WALA-TV had a graphic with the slogan for their news department and the name of one the counties in their local broadcast area appear in the top-left corners of news reports about that country during their broadcasts this calendar week (the slogan was "Committed to You"; the name of the county was Baldwin).
  • WJTC-TV had the theatrical movie titled "The Princess Bride" broadcast without much of its first quarter this past Saturday (between 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.) due to their broadcast of a Carnival parade taking place in Mobile's downtown area during the time period in which the first quarter was meant to be broadcast (7:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.).
  • This past Friday's (February 13th) edition of WPMI-TV's local 10:00 p.m. news program ("Local 15 News at 10:00") had a local segment in which some folks expressed their personal feelings about a news presenter for the National Broadcasting Company being suspended from the position of news presenter and managing editor for their network TV news program titled "NBC Nightly News" for having publicly and repeatedly broadcast an untruthful version of a news report he did for them back in the year 2003 and for being suspected of having broadcast other untruthful stories while in his position (the name of the news presenter was Brian Williams).
