Vince Vitrano: Not For Broadcast

RIGHT BACK AT YOU JS!

MOM TOLD ME ABOUT KIDS LIKE THIS

  • Print

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is just jealous. Must be. It's what mom always taught me.

Remember when you'd complain to your parents about some kid making fun of you at school? You'd say, "Jimmy made fun of my shoes or my hat."

Mom always said that kid was just jealous. That never made any sense to me at the time. Then Jimmy would show up wearing the same shoes a couple weeks later. Mom was right.

Seems like that's what's going on with our friends at the newspaper.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel takes any and every opportunity to rip us here in TV land. The journalists there have taken particular pleasure this year in criticizing our extended weather coverage during this second snowiest winter of all time.

I'm not saying we're above criticism. I've posted on this very blog some emails from our own viewers who thought we went too far. I don't argue that's not a valid opinion out there among some people.

I am, however, calling out the local fish-wrap for being hypocritical. Anyone notice yesterday's FRONT PAGE story? Oh, snow! was the headline. It was a story about the possibility that it could snow the next day.

My favorite part of the paper trying to jump into the weather forecasting business is that by the time the paper ended up in doors and on porches throughout Southeast Wisconsin, their story was already wrong! The National Weather Service had canceled the Winter Storm Watch that was the basis for the article.

The article then went on to quote several people about the height of their snowbanks, and efforts to shovel the snow throughout the season.

As I searched the internet for an image of the JS, I couldn't find yesterday's front page. Funny. One of them that shows up in a quick google search is from last year. Front page story on... you guessed it... the weather.

Hello pot? This is kettle. You're black.
