Scooped

WTEN dealt a severe spanking to the competition last night, scooping everyone with explosive details on the story of the day. News that the death of 86 year-old Jean Balashek was ruled a murder became everyone's lead, but only WTEN reported that the woman's daughter, Corianne Balashek, had done time for manslaughter. Balashek, who police say discovered her mother's body, spent nine years in prison for the strangling death of a 29 year-old woman in 1981. Since being released from prison, Balashek reportedly underwent gender reassignment, changing her name from Cory to Corianne.

Now if they could only figure out how to get the story on their website (9:06am).
