On another note, he can now boss everyone around, and you know how crazy drunk with power he can be... ;)

I hate all the ads on this Web site.
If you want to see what your successors at KUJH-TV are doing these days, check out our new Web site at tv.ku.edu. This is a product of the new online editing class.
Editor's Note: If you want a free website that's fairly easy to manage, you have to live with the fact that there are ads. It's sad but true.

By the way, if you're frustrated by Internet Explorer and Netscape both as much as I am, go get the Firefox brower if you haven't already. It's faster, and the Live Bookmarks fuction for reading news sites like CNN rules.

Why do I think that? Just read the press release our station put out on Wednesday afternoon.
At WWTV-WWUP/TV, 9&10 News, we believe that the role of a local television broadcaster is to serve our local community. We offered our online poll concerning the airing of the Dan Rather special as a way to let our Northern Michigan viewers voice their opinion.
Unfortunately, this simple act of broadcasting localism has been grossly misinterpreted. We were simply trying to maintain the great tradition of local viewer input that is the foundation of our modern day broadcasting system. It was never our intent to embarrass Mr. Rather or the CBS Network.
We have always valued our over 50 year relationship with the CBS network and look forward to many more years of our affiliation.
Therefore we have suspended the poll and will broadcast the program in its entirety.
We apologize for any misunderstandings our actions may have caused.

And the shit has hit the fan...
We got an article written about us from the AP yesterday that ran in the morning papers.
That also led to a story on CNN this morning. And, Lost Remote (www.lostremote.com), a TV blog I read picked up the story which means it’s just a matter of time before the blog-o-sphere starts posting all willy-nilly.
AndI'm told that Les Moonves called the station last night to demand we air the special.
Ah, the fun continues.
