As I have written before, I like it when TV reporters are able to take the time to talk about their jobs, not necessarily about how tough they have it, but in a way that gives the viewers some insight into the story.
KSN anchor Tiffany Alaniz, covered Vice President Dick Cheney's visit to Springfield today. The visit wasn't too exciting (we are talking Dick Cheney here), but I was interested in Ms. Alaniz' conversation with 5 p.m. co-host Gary Bandy about the security at the visit. Since this is the kind of thing that any viewer would run into while attending a visit by the president or vice president, it is useful information.
I also appreciate KSN's wisdom in putting Ms. Alaniz out in the field, especially on a hard news story.
I wasn't that thrilled by the Mariah Carey/Eminem conversation that followed. Oh, well, one step forward, two steps back.
