A lot has been made about fake news lately; often justified. As an example, there was the false news item of Britney Spears dying in an automobile accident.
But there is an interesting phenomenon in Alabama: Locally, our 10 PM news on Friday is given over to high school clips and scores: Roughly, 80% of the program.
On Saturday night, the focus shifts to Alabama and Auburn football; but maybe a nod to Alabama A & M and UNA. And maybe if there is some cataclysmic outcome in some other game.
Suppose the Biblical Four Horsemen were involved:
One horseman: not a peep.
Two horsemen: maybe; if War or Death are involved. If Famine or Pestilence are involved as the two, then fuggetaboutit.
Really gory accidents with live camera footage: it's definitely local news.
Of course, the hot weekend weather girl will make an appearance. In colder weather, she will forego a bra.
