I sent this breaking news piece to Matt a few months back, but he said something about rape not being funny. Now that I’m manning the helm, I feel compelled to share this local news gaffe to prove that small-market news teams can compete with the high-levels of chicken f**king prowess that New York’s Ernie Anastos and the rest of the Fox 5 News Team consistently deliver.
Since nothing makes us Midwestern folks grab our lanterns and pitch-forks faster than a good old-fashioned serial rapist on the loose, the local media was quick to exploit our fears in the form of a little “on the scene” reporting from Kansas City, NBC News affiliate reporter Larry Seward.
Annnnnd, cue fear mongering introduction, token interview with distressed, doe-eyed white girl, and finally the revealing police sketch that looks eerily similar to…. don’t just stand there camera guy, get him!
