There's Nothing More Important than Stealing It Right

It's tough to argue against the slogan WNYT's been using lately, after all, what could be more important than getting it right? WRGB certainly agrees.
Last week CBS 6 started airing promos that are a direct rip off of their competition, if not word for word, in spirit and substance. And what did Liz and Greg cite as an example of the importance of getting it right? The West Virginia coal mine disaster. I can appreciate the value of swiping a good idea, but I can't tolerate stupidity ---and talking about the coal mine thing as the media getting it wrong is just plain dumb.
