Breaking…HD

I understand that some people are excited about the NBC affiliate here in Great Falls getting an upgrade — but tagging it as “breaking news” — seriously?

“Man Found In Missouri Identified”

Sadly, yet another body was pulled from the Missouri River in Cascade County this week – that makes three.

But from the Department of Bad Headlines comes this from the Trib: “Man Found In Missouri Identified.” That headline makes it sound like there was some guy wandering around the state of Missouri, possibly suffering from amnesia, who was finally identified by family members after seeing his photo on the local news.

Heck, even KFBB managed to do better with its headline: Officials Identify Body in the Missouri River,” remembering to include the word “river.”

But to the Trib’s credit — they were the first Great Falls media outlet to post video about the body being found, including a soundbite from the woman who found the body; good work by Kristen Cates. Of course, it’s hidden behind a paywall, but still – good hustle by Kristen.

Street or Avenue?

From the Department of Bad Headlines (which also happens to illustrate my rant about “Fourth of July vs. Independence Day”) comes this from the Trib:

trib4th

This year’s Independence Day fires were relatively few and minor, thankfully…and unlike last year, Hill 57 didn’t erupt into a bonfire.

Here’s a shot of DaVonte and Cody, burning the midnight oil at KRTV after returning from the fire on Gore Hill…Cody just joined the team a few weeks ago, and DaVonte literally started yesterday – they’re off to a great start!

Spellinig, Hashtags

An unfortunate typo at the Trib.

On the other hand, I do appreciate that the Trib included my “hashtag” entry in a recent issue, and even included a clickable link in the online version. Thanks Trib!

UPDATE: Oh. Oh, dear. Here’s another take on the spelling bee, this time from KFBB.

DENY

Bet you didn’t know that today is your lucky day, did you?

Your Lucky Day, sez Tribune

Oh, but wait, what’s this?

AP on Tribune - Approve or Deny?

Meh. Pretty sure it’s harmless, but still…I’ll pass.

“Breaking”

Bless their little hearts for trying – as of 9:34 pm, the GF Trib thinks that it’s “breaking news” that a house burned NW of Great Falls … if only they had turned to KRTV.com at 12:57 pm when it was first reported and was *actually* breaking news.
