Viewer Feedback on Difficult Story
Anyone who works in Customer Service will tell you the same thing. People are quick to criticize, but slow to praise. It's the same in television news. The critics are loud, but often the voices of support are silent.
Thanks to Anne Thornton for taking the time to give positive feedback to the TMJ4 Newsroom. Such acts of thoughtfulness are good for our souls. We should all remember to compliment when deserved. Whether it's family, friends, coworkers or strangers, everyone could use a lift. Often one random act of kindness can change a life forever. A world with too much negativity is destined to fail. We can all do our part to elevate the universe. We need to remember to share positive feelings, like Anne Thornton. She took time out of her busy life to spread good thoughts. Thank you Anne. May blessings be yours. The following is a portion of Anne's letter.
"A most sincere appreciation for the outstanding, professional, and tasteful coverage of the Benson/Bukosky story. You were the only station that provided not only ongoing coverage, but you really got your facts right with regard to Benson. I have known Mark Benson since high school and worked with him since he finished his residency.
I admire you for not adding unnecessary drama to an already horrid situation, particularly for the Bukosky family.
You should be commended for your uniquely professional and sensitive handling of this tragic, sad and wasteful incident."
