Hello there, here I am back again with another rant and a complement .
Channel 4, which is our local NBC station showed the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, hurray for them.
Now the rant , first here is what I left on the message board at CBS...........I have to say that the coverage of the parade was lousy, just as the Oklahoma float and band came up the hosts were Oops time to go to a commercial , we dont want to show any thing about Oklahoma, it is thier 100th year as a state, cant let anyone know Oklahoma has something besides a dust bowl.
Get real guys, Oklahoma is up and coming. My husband is as mad as a wet hen, there was not enough of the Oklahoma part of the parade to tell what anything looked like. Some of the news people at CBS tried to put us down when the Murrah building was bombed. It is not acceptable for them to have a couple of talking heads up their yapping with celebrities about every thing but the parade. If you do that have a show for that , don't do it on a parade.
thank you for letting me vent.
OK , that being said I want to just put a little more in here.
CBS , Connie Chung, to be exact asked us if we could handle the Murrah bombing. Now CBS is dissing our float and one of our college bands.
Get real guys
We are not some backwards state that has nothing to offer the USA.
We have a great downtown with Brick Town, We have a real river now that has regattas on it.
We have a lot of celebrities that have come from Oklahoma, including astronauts, war heroes, country music stars, some hip hop stars, a lot of bands , just to mention a few of the great things that come from Oklahoma.
the bottom line is
'GET OVER YOURSELVES CBS AND
DON'T GO MESSING WITH US'
Every state has good things in it , why not report on that instead of disrespecting and important state such as Oklahoma.
OK , enough about that , how was your Thanksgiving day??? Nice and family oriented I hope.
peace go with you my friends
