The Fox-ification of KTRH, Part XXXVIII
They're not even trying to hide it anymore at KTRH, the once-proud AM news giant in town.
This morning, President-elect Obama was having a press conference; KTRH chose instead to do a live interview with lunatic Ann Coulter.
That's okay; Coulter is notoriously difficult to get an interview with. If you're a 5,000-watt station in Toad Suck, Arkansas, and even then she'll work her schedule around to accommodate you as much as necessary.
The anchor -- he was a subsitute for Lana Hughes; we didn't catch his name, but remember, he was the news anchor -- opened the interview with this question:
Rice Owls Football vs. Southern Miss
TicketsSat., Nov. 11, 2:30pm
Houston Texans vs. Arizona Cardinals
TicketsSun., Nov. 19, 12:00pm
Rice Owls Football vs. North Texas
TicketsSat., Nov. 25, 12:00pm
Houston Texans vs. San Francisco 49ers
TicketsSun., Dec. 10, 12:00pm
Houston Texans vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
TicketsMon., Dec. 25, 3:30pm
(Well, first he giddily exclaimed how excited he was to be talking with Coulter, then he asked the question.)
"What's the future for conservatives? With [he then listed a few things, like the economy, etc.] -- with all of that -- what are we going to do?"
At least the news team is making its prejudices clear. It's the best we can hope for now.
