Feder runs a column FIFTEEN days later. It is called spin control because they were being attacked for not being live when others were to reported it minute by minute. So they woke someone up waving "hey I am here"! If they were there and NOT PRE-RECORDED, they would have been able to report there were slick conditions even before it happened. People are better off just subscribing to Twitter and feeds and Google Maps.
It is an industry practice. Never say 4:07AM when you are pre-recorded. You say "7 past the hour". So you can seem to be there but you are not. Ever listen to a station and they never announce the current temp? Auto-pilot!

But you can't do that when you are running a News outlet via computer and no one there.

There are a ton more, cuts at Score, Jamz, the Nationalization of their CHR and Alt formats. If you or anyone can't the see the writing on the wall, don't know what else to say except get the VR headset off and join reality.
