Many local broadcasts have been reduced to the daily news version of baseball’s plays of the week. But instead of seeing baseball players crashing through the outfield fence or sprawling to make a catch, we see the most pathetic, most horrifying, or most anxiety-inducing video available that day, presented as news. Each day, news broadcasts across the country air videodriven stories that have little value to viewers. One day in early 1997 wnbc in New York aired, in sequence, video stories about flooding in Australia (so moderate that residents were shown standing on their porches watching the water go by), a train wreck in Kent, England (no fatalities), and snowfall of a mere twelve inches in, of all places, Aspen, Colorado.

All journalists are thin skinned when it comes to criticism, but I have found broadcasters to be particularly defensive. First of all, many suffer from an inferiority complex because they know that print journalists, by and large, have little respect for their craft. Second, broadcasters argue that it is impossible for those of us outside their business to understand the difficulty of preparing stories that are image driven. Without good video there is no story, they will say. Today the possession of any “hot” video means that there will be a story, whether it rates a story or not.

Gilman Spencer, my former boss at the rival NewYork Daily News, liked to call Newsday “a tabloid in a tutu,” and it has exposed that schizophrenia by publishing as many tab knockoff stories as any paper in the United States, especially anything related to native Long Islanders Amy Fisher and Joey Buttafuoco. Here is an example from 1993. Again, Steve Dunleavy and A Current Affair played a role: Amy’s Jail Pal Claims Romance By Phil Mintz, STAFF WRITER A 26-year-old Long Island woman has told a tabloid television show that she had a “romance” with Amy Fisher in the Nassau County jail and that she now wants to spend the rest of her life with Fisher.
