WHAS11 Hypes Clinton Fundraiser With Nonsense

February 14th, 2014 by admin · 1 Comment

Where do we begin?

Just take a look:


WHAS11 is claiming that ticket prices for Alison Grimes’ fundraiser featuring Bill Clinton are “soaring.”

And Doug Proffitt goes on to portray the $5,200 top ticket price as out of the ordinary. It’s not – it’s the maximum amount you can contribute in a U.S. Senate race. And soaring? From what? That implies this is an everyday event.

We’re clearly not fans of any current senate candidate but how is that a story? Has every local station gone to WAVE3-style pot?
