Orange County Chopper

Christopher Porco and Terry KindlonIt just got a lot more expensive to cover the Christopher Porco murder trial.

The change of venue is good news for Porco and attorney Terry Kindlon, but it's a disaster for area media. While Orange County isn't really that far away, it's going to be a huge hassle, especially for TV crews. Covering this properly means being there, and being there will be costly. Between overtime, satellite fees, meals, and even lodging, the Porco trial will show us which station is willing to put their money where their mouth is ---and these days, there seems to be a lot more mouth than money going around.
