One local TV station just started broadcasting its news programs in high definition, and, of course, is running plenty of ads about this life-altering change. Why?
Maybe the few folks in the area with an HD receiver are seeing something I’m missing. However, on a plain old TV their news broadcasts look like the same old friendly-talk, tabloid, sensationalistic mess dressed up with a big new neon lit set and brighter clothes for the anchors. The money would have been better spent on some real reporters.
