Huh?

Someone want to explain this quote from Channel 11 reporter Raquel Eatmon as she was doing a boating safety story (which we've heard a million times)?: "We are also told that the water level right now [at lake Lewisville] is about seven feet below its normal level, and officials are hoping that is a good sign for them - that swimmers will avoid those deep, dangerous areas." (Channel 11 at 5:35 p.m.)

I just watched a yatch out in front of my house hit a stump and now I have this big eye sore to look at ...
I can not even guess how they are going to get this boat off the bottom ....

Bummer ... Eagle Mountain Lake is down 8 to 10 feet

Well, you know, it makes a whole lot of difference if you drown in 8 feet of water as opposed to 30 feet of water!!

The basic issue with this and so many other reports is that the persons now coming up and doing TV reporting are a product of our education system in this country over the past ten years or so. In other words, largely clueless and it shows. No practical knowledge, totally dependent on scripts. No journalistic ability. It's going to get worse, not better.

Amen, 10:39 AM. I think journalism in school nowadays is "How to slant every story you make in a 'politically correct' manner". The upper-classman courses also include "How to ignore the real story even though it bites you on the butt".
