KOAM broke the story of Jasper County Presiding Commissioner Chuck Surface's being stopped by a Jasper County deputy, a stop which appears headed for a DWI citation, then did nothing to build on its scoop.
The story has not appeared on the KOAM website and because of the timing (it came at the end of the 10 p.m. newscast, the station has to wait until today's 6 p.m. newscast to follow up on it.
So far, only the Joplin Daily has followed up on the story. A link to John Hacker's article is included with the last post. The Globe does not have anything and neither do KOAM's competitors or KOAM's sister station, KFJX.
