The Slice

Update on my boycott of local TV news

Readers of the print Slice may recall that a few months ago I declared an intention to discontinue watching Spokane TV news.

In a nutshell, I had grown weary of being told how I'm supposed to feel about the weather. I prefer to make up my own mind.

Well, I have to admit that I have been backsliding a little bit. In the last couple of weeks, I've felt free to watch a few minutes now and then.

And I have one question: Who are these people?

It seems like the actual reporting staffs have gone through a 90 percent turnover since I pulled the plug, so to speak.

I had heard that some regulars were gone. But I had no idea the shuffle had been this drastic.
