I hope you know about this. I was at the Winkler funeral…where media was not allowed inside. On their evening newscast, WKRN Channel 2 (the ABC affiliate in Nashville) led off with a story from Jamie Tucker. He began his report by explaining that media were not allowed in the funeral, but he went in anyway with a hidden wireless microphone to give channel 2 the scoop.
I don’t know about you…but I thought this was pretty terrible. Mr. Tucker was more interested in an exclusive than a grieving family. Channel 2 had the arrogance and audacity to air such a disrespectful segment. I hope you’ll send them an email (their website is http://www.wkrn.com) and you can send email to a variety of accounts. I personally prefer their newsdesk (firstname.lastname@example.org) because it gets in the way of them reading other “exclusive stories.” I hope Mr. Tucker loses his job for this, and I hope our pressure causes several advertisers to abandon WKRN like I plan on it.
Spread the word.
