It's just great that all three network stations preempted national news coverage to provide us with pithy remarks about this wreck as if waiting 20 minutes would make a difference.

The local affiliates' "area" is KC. For them, that takes priority over the national network; whether it's for local breaking news or weather coverage.

To argue in your favor though - perhaps they could have simply ran a blurb across the bottom of the screen with the info, then waited until the top of the hour for full coverage.

Local metrosexual TRANNY BITCHES news is awful ! VERY much obviously all read off of prompters and can't string two rational sentences together , also they can never just report the facts of any story without bullshit commentary ¡! Only exception may be local news station Fox 4 , maybe the least LIBERAL Democrat Snowflake HOMOSEXUALLY ABOUNDS station that we have here in the KILLA CITY ¡!¿?
