KFOR Channel 4 is on top of the news…

Like most news organizations, KFOR NewsChannel 4 uses Facebook to inform viewers of their upcoming stories on the nightly news broadcast. And like most news organizations, KFOR NewsChannel 4 likes to stick to those stories that really matter. You know, like whether or not you should upgrade your iPhone software:

 

Screw the fact that someone found a dead body in a bag behind a Homeland in Bethany or that some guy spent his day getting hit by a car, escaping from an ambulance, jumping off a bridge and then leading police on a 30 minute chase through the woods. Yeah, screw all that. I just want to know if I need to upgrade my phone software. That’s the news that matters.

Anyway, at least KFOR is using their Facebook account to keep people informed news. Thankfully they are not doing something cheesy like selling out-of-stock Halloween costumes. Wait…

Wow. I guess things are so bad at KFOR that they now have to push Halloween costumes on their Facebook page. Considering they are usually one of the top rated news broadcasts in the metro, that’s kind of sad. What’s even sadder is that it looks like they only get 10% for each costume they sell. Before you know it, they’re going to force Bob Barry Jr. to give plasma and print a tastefully done Joleen Chaney swimsuit calender. I guess that wouldn’t be too bad.

Also, in case you do want to buy a Sonic the Hedge Hog youth costume, I found one doing a quick internet search. It’s only $30 through Kohl’s. If you buy it, be sure to use the promo code makeTLOmoney. We’d appreciate it.

  1. Nice catch. That’s almost as tasteless (pun intended) than the Daily Embarrassment advertising its own products as news: http://newsok.com/article/3612720

    Several readers posted in the comments that the Daily Embarrassment conveniently neglected to mention that Wimgo and the Daily Oklahoman are both owned by OPUBCO. Soon after, Anschultz and Co. showed off their journalistic integrity by disabling comments (and still not publishing the correction to their “article”).

    The pizza was delicious though.

  2. Holy misplaced phrases Batman! I’m impressed that TLO could decipher the teaser about the man/ambulance/escape (I couldn’t). At least they’re not journalists. Hey, wait a minute…..

  3. That Sonic costume would be great for the kids to wear to the furry convention you guys recently posted about.
