The other morning I tuned in my local news station. The anchor was delivering a story on the rising gas prices. She stated flat out that the rise in cost was a sign of an improving economy. She basically took the words right out of Obama's mouth and repeated them as fact. The assumption that this is evidence of better times to come is wholeheartedly untrue. She offered no proof or expert testimony to prove her statement. I decided to call them on it. This is the email I sent to the news director at the station and his response back to me. I've x'ed out names and the station's call sign.To Whom It May Concern, Today XXXXXXXX presented a news story on the rise in gas prices. She stated that it was a sign of an improving economy. President Obama said that very same thing yesterday so I assume that’s where she or the story writer got it from. First of all high gas prices are not a sign of better times and anyone that suggest otherwise is out of touch in my opinion. Second to take the Presidents words from yesterday and deliver them as fact to the people of our town without questioning the validity of his statement in wrong. High gas prices are good for no one except the oil companies and maybe the electric car manufacturers. If this is an example of XXXX’s reporting style leading up to November than I would suggest you register with the F.E.C. as one of President Obama’s political action committees. I like XXXXXXXXX and I rely on XXXX news. Don’t do this. It made your morning program look cheap and unreliable to say the least. Thank you Their response to me.... Thank you for your email. In the script we did attribute analysts to the economy improving, but I would agree with you that the wording was not ideal. ANALYSTS ARE SAYING TO EXPECT HIGHER PRICES BY SUMMER... IN PART BECAUSE THE ECONOMY'S IMPROVING AND THAT DRIVES UP DEMAND. I have shared your thoughts with our producer and we will be more careful when dealing with these national stories. I can assure you we are not taking sides. Best, Please!!!! All conservative minded people...take the time to call the media on their biased reporting. Do it respectfully and stop letting the left wing media brain wash the people of our great nation.
